  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: 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
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.

All The Bad Reviews Are The Truth!!!
Bought this in 2013, should have returned after the first time I used it. The ONLY good thing about this mower is it almost always starts on the first pull. It is under-powered, the drive system is a good idea but it doesn't work well. The cut is terrible, leaves a trail of partially cut grass about 6 inches in from the right rear wheel. Most times I have to go over areas twice, that doesn't save much time. Grass sticks to the deck like you wouldn't believe, even dry grass.

Got a recall... more

Worst Mower Ever!
This mower is a very poor performer. I previously owned a Troy Bilt 33 " mower. It was a beast. I used it for 14 years before I had to give it up because of moving to a smaller house without a storage shed. It had casters on the front which made it more maneuverable than this Toro despite its larger size. The Toro chokes on clippings frequently yet clippings build up under the deck necessitating frequent cleanings mid-mow. The gas tank is woefully undersized necessitating frequent... more

I'm Really Liking This Mower
Basically a beefier powered push mower. I would like a bigger fuel tank but no real complaints, well maybe it's pricey for what it is. I wanted the maneuverability of a pusher but the width of a small ride on. It fits the bill for my half acre.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Fast
Cons: Expensive, Heavy

Big Pile Of Garbage
How do I start, just over a year, I have replaced 2 drive pullys going to have to replace the drive belt again 2nd 1 in 3month spans. Drive belt constinately slipps so I'm have to shove it up hills. Won't cut grass if thick and wet. Had to replace cable that engages blades. The only good thing about it is it will cut your time in half of under the right circumstances
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Not Worth The Money
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality

I am very displeased with the purchase of my new 20200 Toro mower. We purchased it from Mowers Direct less than a month ago. The first time I used it, it was great. The second time I used it, the electric start required several attempts before the motor started.

Once it started it was good, but the start concerned me. My third attempt, this time using the bag, the mower would not re-start at all with the manual pull or the electric start. After sitting for 15 minutes, it would sometimes... more

Daniel,
We are sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Toro mower. For starting issues please bring your Toro mower to the nearest dealer for servicing within three years of your purchase date and Toro will fix your unit for free.

First be sure to have your mower filled up with fresh gasoline. Old gas can also lead to problems starting. If you have last season's gas in your mower, drain your fuel tank and fill with fresh gas. Other possible causes include:

• Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten.
• Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace.
• Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn't work, you might need a new fuel filter.

Please call our customer service number if you have any other questions (888) 384-9939 (toll free).

Toro 30" Cut
I own a Toro TimeMaster (30") 190cc Self-Propelled Lawn Mower w/ Electric Start and mulching kit, that I bought in 2015. The mower is the best mower I have ever owned, and I have owned Honda, John Deere, and Lawn Boy mowers over the past 50 years.

The personal pace feature is incredibly sensitive to my change of pace as the grass conditions change. When changing direction the disengage and re-engaging of the drive wheels, it is so effortless that the mower seems lighter than it really... more

It's A Beast
got my mower this spring was on time and after checking the machine over, put fuel in it and it started right-up. After a few cuts I notice that it would not go up a small incline on my property..so this was a concern for me because the self-propel feather was the most important for me..

so I decided to put it up for sell and buy a new and different model mower, as I began to prepare this unit for sell, by checked all of the mechanisms to ensure it was in fine working condition, I notice... more

Under Powered
Mowing a flat lawn is no problem and the drive assist works great in there, but you'll soon realize how heavy the mower is when you have to push it up a slight hill. It doesn't have the power. Also be prepared to run when going down hill as it wants to take off if using the drive assist.

Another FYI: turning on the mower blades almost makes the engine stall. Other than those issues, it starts right up and will mow flat lawns like a charm, only my lawn has hills. Anyone want to buy a mower?

Just Right
This is an excellent grass-cutting machine. The electric start is perfect for an 85 year old man. Easy to use---not complicated at all. My 9/10 acre lot goes faster with the 30 inch cut.

A bit heavy for a lot of close cutting, but great for larger areas. Divide the yard in sections and cut whole yard in 3 outings for terrific exercise versus the big rider.

Wish I Had Bought This Sooner
In 1987 I bought my 21" Sears mower, It served me very well,and I kept up on the maintenance of it, but I'm an older guy now and it took me an hour on my front lawn and 62 trips back and forth to get it done... I needed a bigger mower but a riding mower wouldn't fit thru my 36" gates. I searched the internet for a 30" mower and found this one on Mowers Direct. I liked the features and it would fit thru my gates, and with the electric start it was cheaper than any in town. Best... more
