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

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.

Love It
Excellent for the 1/2 acre lawn I have. I have a summer house on a private island. I had to mow in the rain and had no problem. Washed it out with hose, (clean out hook up a joke) cut excellent. I have a thick fertilized lawn and cut once a week when we are there. No under power problem. I have always engaged blades slow and never stalled. The reviews I read were so all over the place I was skeptical,
but could not be happier!

Tried 2 Mowers Poor Product
Really liked all the features. Everything seemed to work great, started first pull, bagged great, engine never bogged down, cut the grass very well. The only problem was it wouldn't pull itself. First mower used about 5 times, completely quit pulling, sounded like the gears we're ripping out of it. Took it back to Home Depot, no problem gave me new one. I figured it was just a lemon. Used the second mower 4 times got so weak even on a very slight incline had to push. This mower is very heavy.... more

Definitely Not Worth It
I push mow 37 lawns for a living and this would have been a stroke of genius due to the potential time saved because of the width. But quickly found out that it is way to heavy and cumbersome to move around trees and flower beds. Only kept for one day and immediately returned it to Home Depot who were GREAT about returning it. Had to double cut most of lawn anyways as it left so many uncut pieces of grass that lawn looked horrible. Grass was dry and not full length either as it is winter... more

Cons: Expensive, Heavy, Low Quality, Difficult To Use

Not A Good Mower On Hills Or St Augustine Grass
I have owned my mower for just over a year. I have blown three fuses, (40) for some unknown reason. When it arrived I had to take it to the dealer as the fuse was blown. This mower will not work on St. Augustine grass unless the area is flat and level, and forget about trying to bag with this mower as it cuts off and the bag collapses. Do not attempt to mow any type of incline with this mower as it will beat you to death trying to push it. Changing the oil is a pain because it is heavy and... more
Pros: Durable, Price

My Second Toro
This is the second Toro mower I've owned. With the dual blades there are no grass lines when you are mowing, it really minces the grass. As my neighbor said, your lawn looks like a golf course. I would recommend this to anyone. It is not a light machine, but it is easy the maneuver.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Easy To Store, Takes My Yard Hills Without Any Loss Of Speed
Cons: Bottom Wash Doesn't Clean All The Grass Off The Deck, Power Washing Started To Take The Paint Off The Deck

Stay Away
I read many reviews on this mower before purchasing. I read the reviews about how poor the cut was and how the mower did not have enough pick up and that it seemed "under powered". For some stupid reason, I chose not to believe these reviews with all the other good reviews this mower had. Again I say, STUPID. After the first mow I took the blades off to sharpen and found the blades rounded off. I assumed this was the reason for the poor cut. Nope !!!! Even with very sharp blades this... more

Nice Mower, Nice Features, Good Cut.
I've researched this mower for awhile before buying and the reviews are all over the place. I've personally found the 20199 to have good power, a nice cut, easy to maneuver, and has cut mowing time down quite a bit. I do think it's overpriced, and has some cheap parts made of plastic I can see breaking quite easily...(for a thousand dollars I would expect better overall quality).

As a side-note read MANY reviews, I've come across a person writing about how poor of cut the machine gives,... more

Almost A Great Mower.
Mower cuts well but stops after 15 minutes operation. Must wait 30 minutes or more before the mower can be restarted. The job must be finished with the old mower.
Pros: Easy To Use, 30 Inch Cut
Cons: Unreliable

Toro Is O.k.
I waited to write this until I got to use it several times.
I've never been a big fan of Toro, I've owned several of their items and I mostly thought they over charged for their products.
Well this one is different, They charge a very fair price for it. :o)
It has a lot of power and uses little gas to run, starts easy and it cuts well on flat land as well as hills.
The handling is easier than I thought it would be considering the weight.
I run the rear wheels to cut a half inch higher than... more

Time Saver Is The Perfect Name For This Product.
I am a landscaper in Mass. and lawns are what we do, along with other services. I think its great it go's a lot of places were a 36 or a 48 can't get to, and a lot faster than a regular size mower. It saves on time and is really good on gas too. This product I would recommend not only to landscapers but to a lot of older folks as well. Thank you
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Time Saver
The unit does work well now, but was very hard to get started the first few times it was started. It required many, many pulls to get the engine to fire up. The recoil pull handle is in a very awkward position for either right or left handed pulls. It needs to be moved a few inches to the right to make it easier.
Pros: Features, Durable, Quiet, Fast, Reliable, High Quality, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, Heavy
