  5 Questions
Q: Does the TimeMaster 30" mower have the same plastic gears in the rear drive wheels similar to the 22" mulching machines? Thank you.





by Andy from New York on May 06, 2016

A: Andy - the gear pinion (part #110-9417) on the Toro TimeMaster mowers is made of metal.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What is the difference between Personal Pace and Self Propelled?
by Steve Brasington from South Carolina on April 09, 2015

A: Steve - Toro's "Personal Pace" system is one type of self-propelled drive system on a walk behind mower. The Personal Pace self-propel system automatically adjusts the speed of the mower to your walking speed. With a normal self-propelled system, the speed of the mower is controlled with a bail, a lever or some other mechanical means.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What is the maximum cutting height? My fescue grass needs to be kept tall, especially in the summer. Thanks.
by Steve from Georgia on July 12, 2014

A: Steve - the max mowing height on the Toro 20199 is 4"
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Can you get this mower with swivel wheels in front and also a stripper? Please reply.
by Larry Alsleben from Minnesota on March 09, 2013

A: Larry - the Toro TimeMaster does not have a front swivel wheel option. As for a lawn striper, this is what you would need: lawn striper
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: RE: Toro 20200: Can this unit be operated without the bag in place? How is it delivered, what is owner set-up involve? Thanks.
by Derek Braybrooks from South Carolina on May 29, 2012

A: Derek - yes, the Toro TimeMaster mower can either discharge the clippings or mulch the clippings without the bagger being attached - just like a standard 21" mower. This mower would be delivered in it's shipping carton via a semi truck to your home or business. Assembly is very simple. Fold up and tighten the handle, attach the bagger if you want to bag, add oil and gas, and start mowing.

The Toro TimeMaster 20199 is a solid choice for homeowners looking to get the job done in a short amount of time. The 30" deck significantly reduces your mowing time when you have a lot of ground to cover.

The 20199 is powered by an easy to start Briggs & Stratton overhead valve engine. The Dual-Force cutting system turns grass into a super-fine mulch for superior quality of cut and a healthy, rich lawn.

Works Like It Should If You Read The Instructions
I first looked at one a few years ago but the recall for broken blades scared me off. After I was sure the problems were fixed I bought one. Got mine from a local Toro dealer since they set it up, added oil, filled the gas tank and ran it to show me how the controls operate.

So far I've used it 4 times with the bag and I like it. Had to adjust the Personal Pace cable cause it was way too fast. Removed the nut and replaced it with a knob so I could custom tune it during use. Did this with 3... more

Big Disapointment
Purchased mower June of 2013. Mulches and bags grass well. Worked well first year and a half. Cuts great on flat terrain but will not pull up modest hill of my walk out. Took mower in yearly for service.

Sept. of 2015 belt broke and did $171.00 in damage to pedestal bearings, blades, and was not charged for all repairs, but took three weeks in shop.

April 2016, I suspect tension pulley shot craps and been in shop nearly four weeks as shop says parts on order. Using my Honda HRX with bad... more

Worst Machine Ever
I have owned this piece of garbage for four years. The shoot intake is to small and constantly gets jammed with cut grass. It cant handle mowing if the grass has the littlest bit of moisture. The engine is too small to pick up 30" of grass cutting. Toro's response, " cut half the amount on your rows." If that's the case, why name it the Timemaster.

After a year of fighting with customer service and a letter writing campaign, Toro admit guilt and promised to send me a 100%... more

I Agree With Eric F
Four years ownership. First had problems with the belts jumping off and today one of the blade rods feel out and the threads are stripped. Surely an expensive fix. Also true it clogs like hell. Going back to a $50 off Craigslist and will bite the bullet on time for a 22"

Great Mower
I have owned the 22 inch Personal Pace for many years to cut around trees in a large yard and liked it. Now I have a smaller yard but still too large for the 22".

Also my yard has a steep slope. In reading the reviews about the 30 inch, I was concerned about the slope but it has plenty of power to pull the grade without any problem. Also it has a very smooth level cut.

Saves You Time .............
Great piece of equipment easy to start and operate. On level ground this mower really does the job, can cut mowing time by 30-40%. No problem cutting through deeper grass and clumping not an issue.

The mower can be a handful on slopes and damp grass. It is a big mower and can be a bit much to maneuver if footing is touchy or if you are slight of build. Overall under normal grass cutting conditions this mower really does the job and quickly too.

Best Mower I Have Ever Owned
I personally waited 2 years to write a review about this lawn mower so I could give everyone an honest review. Like I said I have owned this lawn mower for 2 full seasons and I LOVE IT!!! I have a 1/2 acre lot that I mow with this mower and it does it flawlessly job.

I have my neighbors stop me on the street to ask me who mows my lawn. When I say I do they are very surprised. If you have a semi-level lawn and mow your yard during the cutting seasons every 7-10 days you will absolutely... more

Disappointed In Michigan
Having purchased this mower last year I have had it back in the shop too many times. It is under-powered, it clogs up and makes a mess of the lawn, it leaked gas from the cap (which they replaced) then leaked again (they replaced the cap and gas tank).

The deck is poorly designed and misses grass of which you have to go over again. The clunky thing is very heavy and hard to handle. I tried to return it but with no avail. I would NOT recommend this mower!

Brand Rep
John,

Not Happy
The mower would not run. I called your service dept but due to your policies and procedures you recommended that I take the mower to a Toro service rep. I ordered the mower online because I do not have a truck. After spending 1k on a mower taking it to a service tech to fix it did not seam reasonable. I believe the person I spoke to wanted to help but your procedures are a joke.
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging, Poorly Put Together

Jose, the Lawn Mower Expert
Product Expert
Andrie,
Thank you for your order. We do appreciate your business. We apologize that your mower is not working as expected and understand your frustration. All engine equipment is covered by a warranty through the manufacturer. We will assist in any way possible, but we are required to follow the warranty process put forth by the manufacturer.

We can provide you with a list of local authorized service centers, as well as cover transportation costs up to $60 to have the center pick up/return the mower. We would just need you to submit a receipt.

If the service center deems the unit as irreparable due to defect, we would need something in writing from the service provider stating this so that we can work with the manufacturer to replace the item.
