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

Great Time Saver!
Great time saver for me. 45-50 minutes reduced to 30. I have a 0.4 acre yard with a steep hill in back, no issues. Also no issues of running out of gas that others have mentioned. Gas tank seems to be ok size for my use. Mulch quality is ok and the side discharge is great. You're paying for the overall Toro quality and a market only 30" consumer grade mower. If you want the absolute best mulch quality, the Super Recycler with aluminum deck is the way to go.

Mower Needs More Engineering
Cuts and mulches well, however, number one problem, I only get approx. 30 minutes of cutting time on a tank of gas. Also the self propelled feature causes me to push the mower to get it to go, it is a workout. On uneven terrain or slight inclines this is not comfortable. Hard to turn around or make sharp turns, rotating front wheels might help.

Given the small gas tank and multiple refills on a 90 X 170 lot, it is not as much a time saver as I would have hoped. Carrying a gas tank out to the... more

Eugene,
Per the owner's manual, the sponge element in the fuel taken should not be removed. You shouldn't have to push the mower to get it to go. There is a traction adjustment on your mower, make sure that is set correctly, because it may be the cause of the problem. I would suggest reviewing the owner's manual again to make sure you've set up the mower correctly. If you still believe the mower is not operating correctly, you may want to contact a Toro service center in your area to have your mower looked at.

The Best
I love my Toro. It does exactly what I expected it to do. I cut my grass in half the time and I mulch only. It mulches so well I have yet to use the bag. I mow my lawn approximately every seven days and have cut one application from my lawn service since the great mulching feeds my lawn so well. Great product. Great and courteous service from Mowers Direct. Very happy customer.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Durable

Great Walk Behind Lawnmower
This lawnmower is super fast and cuts great. I have no issues with it at this time. Others have mentioned the gas tank as being a negative, I just fill it each time I empty the bag and get some water. This mower will give you a good walking work out.

Top Quality Cut, Good For Larger Properties
While doing research for a new mower, I found there are hit or miss reviews on this mower. Hopefully this might help. This mower is the 10HP model.

I have a decent sized yard, approximately 20,000 sq. ft. In April, I installed Emerald Zoysia, and was looking for a wider mower that would help me accomplish the task quicker than the old 22" Toro push mower, and still yield excellent cut results. (Don't we all?)

I did several months of research. I considered several models:... more

Exactly As Expected!
I did lots of research, and chose this Toro. My last mower was a Honda which I loved, but wanted the wider mowing footprint. Self-propelled feature is great - really fast, sometimes hard to keep up with. Starts on 2 pulls, not 1, but I'm ok with that. I mow my yard in 60% of the time, because of the wider mowing deck on this mower.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality
Cons: Small gas tank

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

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

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
