Look for an oil dipstick on the mower's deck. If there is no dipstick, it takes mixed gas.

Toro recycler self propelled 6.5hp, 22" (gts)

Hi steve16092...
You may have MAJOR damage to your motor because of overfilling the oil.
Sometimes you can bend or break a piston rod when the engine is overfilled.
Meanwhile you can check a few other things.
Take your plug out and ground it against the head of the engine with the spark wire attached to it.
You should get a bright blue spark, if not then check your ignition module, it may be faulty.
If you have spark, then try putting a little bit of lighter fluid/or gasoline in the cylinder and reinstall the plug and try to crank it...if it cranks, then you may need to clean/rebuild your carburetor.
Please take time to rate me

Does the recycler use gas or a gas oil mixture

Your recycler mower is either gas or electric (as you may know). The gas models use straight gasoline. You do not mix oil with the fuel.

Toro GTS 20332 lawnmower won't start. It's guaranteed to start. Bought it last November. Just put new gas in it, checked the oil, went to pull it and it didn't even sound like it was trying to start..

Hi, well, if it hasn't been started since November? then maybe, the spark plug has fouled, change, DO NOT clean and replace unless you have NO alternative. Also check, the spark plug lead. Replace if possible with a new one. Check all connections, to magneto/alternator, make sure you have voltage? Check the ignition circuit, the electronic ignition module too. Then Check to see if you indeed have a spark, hold the plug, against the case of the motor, and see if you can discern a spark, it should be big, and nice and blue.purple.
Also ensure gas is getting to the carburettor, take the fuel line Off at the carb, and see if gas is flowing?
I would imagine though you have sufficient gas.
If it uses a battery, then make sure this is OK too.

I assume you me It required an oil/gas mixture and was run on straight gas. Depending on how long it was run with no oil, It is very possible that the piston walls are scored or some other form of major damage was done. If it stalled after running with straight gas for a while this is probably what happened. Just try starting it with fresh gas/oil mix as called for, Then go through and make sure it is not flodded and the spark plug is clean.

I have a Toro Super Recycler GTS 6.5 HP. Upon starting the mower white smoke comes out of the exhaust (silver housing) on the front. The smoke stops after about 2 minutes of running. Any ideas??

Oil level too high? *(check oil level with dipstick fully screwed down!)


Leaking valve guide *(rare.)

Cylinder walls not sealing well and oil leaking past rings. *(less rare...nothing you really can do about....just getting used up)

I would change the oil and be very careful to fill only within the full range.
Then, run the unit once to clear the muffler out.

Good luck and be careful!

Toro super recycler mower will not stay running, has fuel and oil and air filter was just replaced

Try replacing the fuel and spark plug. Gas may be bad. Get some fresh from the station not from the can sitting in the garage.
Drain the fuel system and put the fresh gas in.
Good Day.
