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.

Great Upgrade
Mower ready to use right out of the box. Add oil and gasoline and you're ready to go. I was excited to see how this 30" would perform and wow did it meet my expectations. I thought It would be hard to maneuver, but it was quite the opposite.

The Personal Pace system is really nice... smooth, easy to use - even with one hand, easy to pull backwards, and easy to lift, pivot and make turns. Large bag is great, cut is great, overall great mower for residential use.

6 Months Old...blown Engine
Absolutely loved this mower for the first 6 months! The first brand new mower that I have ever bought. Treated it like my first car. Even gave it a spot in the garage instead of the shed. Started it up one day and engaged blades. Immediately started to bog down and ultimately quit/seized.

Checked oil (good) and was able to restart after 15 minutes but engine blew hole in the block shortly after. Owned three other mowers (used) in my life and never had an actual engine failure. Toro... more

Toro Timemaster® (30")(2016 Model) Excellent Value & Toro Warran
I have a one-man lawn maintenance company in a college town and bought this mower to improve my margin and efficiency mowing small yards (mow path 30in v. 21in). I understand this is the Residential model but I am familiar with Toro quality and their adaptation of the ExMark commercial model (I bought a Wheel Horse tractor right after Toro bought W H so this is a similar circumstance).

The mower arrived needing a minor warranty fix, no fault of PED, and this was done quickly without drama... more

Best Push Mower I Have Ever Used
Love my Toro!! Usually takes me 1 hour 15 minutes to mow, weed eat, and blow my 1/2 acre property, with the Toro wide area push mower with personal pace self propelled system finished in 45 minutes.

One part of my yard in the far back was done in 3 minutes flat, and is about 1/5 of the whole yard. I would recommend this mower to anyone with a 1/3 acre to 1 acre yard, and anyone that wants a solid wide area push mower to compliment their landscaping business!!

The mowing only took about... more

"Very high quality product. A little expensive, I would suggest taking 200 to 300 off the price, to get more people to buy it, but it is well worth the money."

Great Mower!
The best bonus feature is that the blades go out a beyond the wheels which makes cutting around edging and corners great! Don't need to use the trimmer in areas I've needed to in the past.

The con would be the power on the self-propel. There is plenty of power cutting and moving those two blades, but trying to get the mower to initially move forward up a hill is not the greatest.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Easy Start, Easy To Store

Perfect Mower For My Yard
I have a very big yard and this machine is perfect for it. I like the wide cut that saves me so much time than my previous mower that was only 19 inch. It has lots of power to carry the rear back when it begins to fill up. The double blade makes my yard look as nice as a golf course. Wish I would have purchased it a year earlier. Delivery came on time and no issues.

This Is A Great Mower It Mulches Better Than Any Mower I've Seen
It cuts very good, love the side discharge. Rolls easy so it hides it's weight, like how it keeps running when you empty the bag.
Pros: Fast, Easy Start, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Expensive

That is what my wife is calling the new mower. We had to take it to the local dealer to get it started properly which was disappointing. Now that we are up and going, it delivers on the 'time master' name. It cut my 60 minutes or work to 25 minutes. Good mower so far.

Exceptional At Mulching
Have 1/2 acre. Cut it at 4''. Mower leaves no clumps, and the cut grass is next to invisible. 4 stars on bagging - tried it out just to see how it would do - not much on bagging free fertilizer. Would like to see an oil drain plug.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Easy Start, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: No Oil Drain Plug
