Q: With the electric start of the Toro Timemaster, does it also have the coil start with it?
by Terry Bailey from Michigan on May 18, 2014

A: Terry - yes, the Toro 20200 has a recoil (rope start) option as well as the electric start.
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

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.

Excellent Mower
This mower meets all my needs for a large and rather hilly yard. It goes up and down the slopes with little effort. Easy to start, I rarely need the electric starter as it starts on a single pull 95% of the time. My yard is large enough that the 30" cutting path is a good thing to have. If it would self clean I would be even happier, but it doesn't take very much effort to clean it anyway.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Possible Boat Anchor
It might make a good boat anchor, but I have my doubts.

I'm convinced the people at Toro wanted to market a wide area walk-behind mower at the $1,000 price point. Maybe they succeeded, but they built almost a non-functioning mower.

The six or so HP engine leaves the mower woefully underpowered. This means it cannot straighten the grass blades before cutting them and it makes for a shabby cut. Additionally, the puny engine does not make it up a small eight foot hill in our yard, so I... more
Cons: Difficult To Use, Woefully Underpowered, Poor Design

Overpriced, But No Competition...
@ $1k +, I think slightly over priced, but it's a one of a kind. Out of the box, stock blades do not generate much lift as many have noticed. The commercial Time Cutter blades do fit and provide much more lift, however, they do steal more engine power. I primarily bag due to battling an on-going lawn fungus issue. The deck does cake easily with clippings, but does not appear to impact performance much (at least for bagging). I removed the blue hill assist squeeze handle.... I found I never... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Time Savings
Cons: Expensive, Slightly Under-powered

Good, With Some Drawbacks...
Bought mine when they first came out. Had to have it serviced twice because of something getting in the fuel from the gas cap (according to service guy). Installed a fuel filter and problem gone. My yard requires many turns and lets face it...this thing is heavier and a bit clumsier to use than a 21", but tolerable. I'm 5'10" and there are 2 settings for handlebar height. I wish there was one right in between the 2 provided. Cuts dry grass well. Wet or thick grass can leave... more

Toro Timemaster Is Good And Bad ...
Positives: easy to store, easy to start, easy to set cutting height, easy to clean after mowing, wide cutting path.

Negatives: uneven cutting, most of the time. I noticed that if the undercarriage is really clean (I clean it out after every mowing) and if the grass is nice and dry, I get an even cut. But if the grass is the least bit damp the mower seems to have a hard time pulling it up to create an even cut between the 2 blades. Also, the mower stalls easily if you do not let it rev... more

Finally A Mower For The In Between Size Yard
This mower is as advertised, a time saver. The electric start model is obviously easy to start, just turn the key. I have .4 acre, mostly level with eight trees and four landscape beds, a rider would be a challenge to maneuver around some of the tight spaces so a walk behind is almost a necessity. Compared to my 22" Toro Personal Pace, this machine cuts my mowing time by 40%. The cut is beautifully even and it mulches excellently. I have not had to "bag" this season. No... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Easy To Store, Quiet
Cons: Expensive, Heavy, Bad Instructions

"Very easy to order, fast accommodating service, but free delivery is not really free as the machine is too heavy to lift off a truck as is comes on a pallet and lift gate delivery is extra. Trust me, the delivery charge is worth it!"

Underpowered
When the grass is slow growing in the middle of the summer this machine is fine. In the spring and even if their is a light mist on the grass the machine clogs and is severely underpowered.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Price
Cons: Not Enough Power, Clog, Clogs, Can't Cut Wet Grass

Big Time Saver
The 30" cut is a big time saver, also the personal pace is as fast as I need and faster. The cut is even and clean. Gas tank could be a little bigger, but fresh gas every time I use it is okay also.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, It Does A Great Job On My Lawn And Its Fast Easy To Operate

Will Work Well For Me Even Though Under Powered
Is all the reviews made it out to be. Seems to be a good quality mower I'll get many years out of. I love Mowers Direct but wish they had a more competitive price on this, price dropped $50 right after I bought it ...
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Reliable, Durable
Cons: Expensive, Unde, Under Powered Needs Bigger Engine

A Little Disappointed
I love the width of the mower but I'm disappointed because it struggles on hills and the engine power leaves a little to be desired on higher grass.
Pros: Durable, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, Too Heavy For Hills
