How many more times can you mow before you should change the oil? Don't know? Ask MyToro.
To maximize your MyToro experience, you can add functionality with the Toro PUC™ (Portable Usage Calculator). The wireless PUC hour meter automatically tracks your Toro's usage and sends data directly to your smartphone to remind you when service is due on common items like blades, belts and engine oil.
Make yardcare easy. Make maintenance automatic. And make your lawn the best on the block, with MyToro and the PUC.
The PUC uses an accelerometer to capture the vibration caused by a running engine. It is tuned specifically to the vibration levels of the engines that Toro uses and cancels out vibrations caused from being pushed or driven across a surface, or trailered from place to place. Over time, all hour meters are susceptible to small amounts of "drift", but this should be minimal and amount just a few minutes spread over 100's of hours of being used.
Activities such as product usage or maintenance tasks can be added manually. In the activity or maintenance tabs, simply click on the red Add button and enter the task or activity.
You don’t need a PUC for the MyToro app to be useful, but your experience with the app and your product will be greatly enhanced. The PUC captures the time, date and duration that your Toro product is used. This data is used to track usage over time and is necessary to accurately keep track of your products maintenance and service. And, it allows you to track how much of your time is spent doing yardwork.
No. The PUC and the MyToro app is designed to work specifically and exclusively on Toro equipment.
Most people don’t do maintenance because they don’t know when and they don’t know how. We get it, it’s difficult to manually track how many times you’ve used your mower, and how long you’ve used it. The PUC does this for you. When the PUC sends this information to your smart device, you’ll have all the information you need to keep your Toro product tuned and in top shape and in turn keeping your lawn looking its best. Keep in mind that the PUC can be moved from one Toro product to another so that you don’t need to buy multiple PUCs for each of your Toro products
In a word, no. The MyToro app has a ton data and useful information. In fact you can access all of the MyToro content on your PC or any device that has access to the internet at my.toro.com.

Yes. In fact the PUC was created with the idea that it can be moved from one tool to another. If the PUC is already assigned to a product, tap the Remove PUC button for that product. The app will sync the PUC one last time and then remove it from that product. To assign an existing or new PUC to a product, tap the Scan for additional PUCs button. When the PUC is displayed tap the Assign button. Next, select the product that you want the PUC to monitor by tapping the Assign button for that product. The app will assign the PUC and confirm that it was successful. Make sure that you physically move the PUC onto this piece of equipment.
