The personal pace is the reason I love these mowers so much. Once you figure out how to use it there is no pushing involved, keep your arms relaxed and start walking.. The other issue you have to get use to is a couple inches before you want to pull it backwards you need to let up on the handle so it rolls forward on it's own and that releases the drive. I had a couple recyclers and they do a good job mulching but the Super recycler does a much better job. They also do a good job bagging but the bag is a pain to empty compared to the Snapper High Vac system.
The recyclers I owned had the B&S 190cc engines and had plenty of power for mulching and always started on the first pull. The super recylers have the Toro 159cc OHV engine and also have plenty of power for mulching and use less gas. The super recycler has a five year warranty if you're looking to buy new but I wouldn't be afraid to buy a used Toro for the right price.
If you look hard enough you'll find complaints about any mower, Honda, Toro, Snapper all the MTD products, people tend to be vocal about the bad things and don't say much about the good things.
