Thanks! It really does run smooth. I had my hand over the microphone for some of the video which is why the sound kept getting muffled. But it runs much smoother than any Lawn Boy I've had. Not hating on the LBs, but this thing is just a step above. As for the mulch plugs, it came with 2 of them ?

And I also have the little blade accelerator that comes on the recyclers.

I just need to install my trailing shield. Then everything else is cosmetic. I want to repaint the recoil and the flywheel shroud and get new decals for them. I should also repaint the handle. There are a few other odds and ends I'd like to fix too, nothing big though.

Looks great and sounds even better Joe. It has come a long way since you picked it up.
Thanks Ben. I'm really happy with how it has come out so far. I can't wait to try it out in some tall grass!

mowing really tall and thick grass is where this engine falls a little short. it dosnt have the raw power that most other 2 cycles have. the lawn boy duraforce is more powerfull here and the Suzuki is for sure a better overall engine. I finally built my own toro with kawi 180jf as I never could find a used one for sale. this gets my extreme toro jobs. best 2 cycle of all time is the Wisconsin robin.

Suzuki 4 stroke finally finished using all used parts from the junk toro pile. oil change-new belt and good used gator blade. used my last good toro 3 speed trans. ready for work next spring. the Suzuki starts easy and runs smooth.

I haven't posted in here in a while but I've been using this mower a couple times a week with the bagger to suck up yard debris. It runs great! It's a super smooth runner. Always starts on the first or second pull too. The grass isn't quite long enough to need cut yet but it won't be long. Maybe another week. Anyways, just an update.

It mows very nicely. It doesn't bag very well. I like to use the bagger for sucking up leaves and all the winter yard debris. My Honda mower is better for bagging. The Toro is far superior at mulching though. And it's built like a tank!
