Mowers Direct Recommended

The Toro TimeMaster 21199 comes with new features this year and is still 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 21199 is powered by an easy to start Briggs & Stratton overhead valve engine but has a new, bigger 223cc engine which provides more torque to handle the twin blades. The Dual-Force cutting system turns grass into a super-fine... more

Easy To Crank And Cuts Through Tall Grass
I was in need of some kind of powerful mower but didn't want or have the need for a zero turn and a walk behind is as large as a riding mower. I found the Timemaster and decided to purchase it. I had let my yard get a way from me and put the TM to the test the first time out of the box. It never bogged, unless it hit an ant hill, and went right through the thickest grass. The self propelled is very easy to use, much easier that I thought it would be. My 11 year old son was able to pull... more
Pros: Durable, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Easy To Store

Good Mower
Solid mower and cuts well even in the high spring grass here in Pennsylvania. Plenty of power in 223 cc.engine. Kind of disappointed with hose attachment clean out, it doesn't even come close to cleaning deck. Still have to scrape after each mowing by hand after each weekly mowing. Also, I purchased earlier in season and paid $999. One month and 2 weeks later the price dropped $50 and I called to see if they would extend me the same courtesy credit. Came back with a firm No. Needless to say... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Light Weight

John,
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I do apologize for any issues you experienced calling back after 6 weeks to get a lowered sale price. Unfortunately these sales are only applicable to mowers purchased within the time frame that the sale runs, as the manufacturer requires us to report each serial number in order to be able to provide the discount. If we could have given a discounted price we certainly would have. I hope that you will give us another try in the future as we believe our product knowledge and customer service is well worth the time. I thank you again for your business and hope to hear from you again soon. Have a great day.

Best Cut I've Ever Had!
I'm absolutely pumped about my new Toro Timemaster. I wanted a mower that would save me a little time mowing my yard. My yard is too small for a rider but too big for a 21" mower, so the Toro Timemaster was a perfect match for my situation. It knocked off 20min of my mow time. Every two passes with my Timemaster was equivalent to 3 passes with my old 21" mower.

What also impressed me about this mower, other than the time it saved, was how well it cuts. It leaves a crisp flat top... more

Significantly Reduces My Workload In The Yard
Well built product with useful features. This is my first Toro mower replacing a 15 year old, 22" cut, bare bones Craftsman. I mow 1/2 an acre weekly, but cannot justify a rider. We grew up using Toro snow blowers and have been impressed with the quality of their products. I maintain and repair all my equipment myself, so I researched this product for almost two years before purchasing. After 4 uses it is solid, reliable to start, and easy to clean. I love the stowing handle to... more

"Mowers Direct was terrific. Only issue I had was local with communication and delivery. The mower was scheduled to deliver and showed to be on the truck, but did not arrive. No communication from them. Unit was delivered next day, with no notice from delivery service. Driver stated they were too busy and residential deliveries don't get the same priority. 161 pound box showed up with a slight protruding dent through the side. Mower seems ok. Look it over carefully before accepting as Mowers Direct instructs."

Initial Review
This is my initial review. So far the mower has been a breeze to operate and the performance is excellent. The start up is not a "one" time pull, its actually two or maybe three. Not a deal breaker, since the mower is such a beast. Thank you for a great value.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again, Fast

Great Lawn Mower
Very easy to start. Very powerful. Does a beautiful job mulching. If you need a large, powerful walk behind lawn mower, this Toro is fantastic.

And, Mowers Direct is an amazingly good company to buy it from! I had my Toro in 2 1/2 days from the time I ordered it until I was cutting grass. I cannot say enough good about Mowers Direct.
Pros: Easy To Store, Fast, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: No cons whatsoever.

Nearly Cut My Mowing Time In Half
At 69 years of age, I wanted a walk behind that I could manage. All standard mowers took 2 1/2 hours to mow my oversize lawn of 1/2 acre. The 30" Timesaver did what I needed and allows me to get my mowing done in 1 1/4 hours. It is heavier and cannot be easily manhandled in tight areas, but the trade-off is minimal. Rear wheel drive is different for me but the lawn looks much better with a wide cut.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store, Fast, Quiet
Cons: small gas tank & must remain level

Time Saver
I have only mowed with the TimeMaster twice so far. My lawn is 1/3 of an acre and I can mow the whole thing on the same tank of gas and in under 1 hour. I really like the personal pace self-propelled feature. The lawn mower is on the heavy side but being self-propelled it is a non-issue. Since I have only used it twice I cannot speak to its durability. The engine doesn't bog down/slow down as much as my older mower did when going over long patches of grass. I am able to keep mowing while... more

"Easy process purchasing through Mowers Direct. It took several weeks to arrive but I paid with an electronic check in order to get the discount so it was well worth it. I haven't had to contact Mowers Direct since I made my purchase so I can't speak to their continuing customer service after the purchase."

Glad I Bought One
Well I watched several youtube videos on this mower and all were on the 2016 model. Then I seen one on a 2017 model. Toro up power on it so I said what the heck and I order one. Used it today after it rained in the early morning so I mowed in late afternoon. My grass was still a little wet but it did great and I was impressed with the power.

As Ddvertised
Waited for the more powerful version of this to come out this year and glad I waited. Ideal for larger residential yards and cut my mowing time down by 40% from a 21" mower. Starts right up every time and the wash out feature using a hose works like a charm. If you aren't ready to spend the money on a rider or commercial mower but need something bigger, this is hard to beat.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Reliable

Best Investment
I bought this to mow steep incline yards, one is about 45 degree and 200ft long. I was able to mow this yard going up hill will one hand. Needless to say the extra width saved extra trips walking up the hill. The mulching plug is a breeze to remove so you can bag too. The only con is the weight but when you figure the size of the mower it's to be expected.
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy
