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.

Love It So Far!
Only used 2 times to date, but love it so far! Delivered on time. Started on 2nd pull. Moves faster than expected! I am able to mow just over a half an acre in 30 minutes.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

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

So Far So Good, But Be Careful Of The Older Underpowered Model
A friend bought a 2016 190cc at a local shop without knowing it was a leftover. Not enough power to handle any dampness on the grass without stalling.

My 223cc new one from PED seems great so far. PED clearly sells the 2016 model with full disclosure, but it seems the local guy just needs to get rid of old stock without disclosure. Be aware! Apparently big difference in performance!
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Easy To Store, High Quality
Cons: Heavy, Small gas tank

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

I have only owned 1 mower for the last 36 years, commercial Bobcat 21" but this Toro 30" is the best ever. Price wise it doesn't matter when you can save time .

I have used my new mower 4 times. The last time the grass had gotten very tall. It powered right through. I am very impressed with the mulching compared to my previous mower and cutting time is reduced 50%. Very Pleased!!
