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.

The Toro TimeMaster 20199 is 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 20199 is powered by an easy to start Briggs & Stratton overhead valve engine. The Dual-Force cutting system turns grass into a super-fine mulch for superior quality of cut and a healthy, rich lawn.

The TimeMaster 20199 features Toro's Personal Pace self-propel drive... more

Time Saver Is The Perfect Name For This Product.
I am a landscaper in Mass. and lawns are what we do, along with other services. I think its great it go's a lot of places were a 36 or a 48 can't get to, and a lot faster than a regular size mower. It saves on time and is really good on gas too. This product I would recommend not only to landscapers but to a lot of older folks as well. Thank you
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Good Luck
Bought this mower at Home Depot. Took it out of the box started on the second pull. I used the mower to cut my lawn twice and it worked great. I loved the feature that you push the handle and that controls how fast the machine goes.

On my third lawn cutting the engine blew up spewing oil and smoke. Took the machine back to HD and they replaced it. Started the first pull this time. I started cutting the lawn and in less than one half hour the self-propelled feature failed. It is a heavy... more

Nice Mower, Nice Features, Good Cut.
I've researched this mower for awhile before buying and the reviews are all over the place. I've personally found the 20199 to have good power, a nice cut, easy to maneuver, and has cut mowing time down quite a bit. I do think it's overpriced, and has some cheap parts made of plastic I can see breaking quite easily...(for a thousand dollars I would expect better overall quality).

As a side-note read MANY reviews, I've come across a person writing about how poor of cut the machine gives,... more

What A Step Up......
I don't have a huge yard but I have been cutting it with a 22" Craftsman mower. I had been that guy who would buy a low end push mower and wear it out after 4-5 years.....then buy another one. Decided it was time to upgrade but really wanted to concentrate on getting a wider mower with a little more power. I have a very lush Fescue lawn and always seems like my grass grows overnight in the Spring and honestly need to mow every 2-3 days. Had my Timemaster delivered yesterday and was... more

Perfect Mower For A Woman
I'll have to say that after reading all the negative reviews on this product, I almost was swayed in the direction of not buying it. Being a woman and not having the strength of a man, my concerns were the starting it up, weight, maneuverability, and problems stated in reviews with powering up a hill. I visited my local Toro dealer to see/try the product in person and felt better about the purchase right away. After using the product, I have to say that I experienced no problems with... more

Definitely Not Worth It
I push mow 37 lawns for a living and this would have been a stroke of genius due to the potential time saved because of the width. But quickly found out that it is way to heavy and cumbersome to move around trees and flower beds. Only kept for one day and immediately returned it to Home Depot who were GREAT about returning it. Had to double cut most of lawn anyways as it left so many uncut pieces of grass that lawn looked horrible. Grass was dry and not full length either as it is winter... more

Mixed Feelings
Have been a Toro customer for close to 30 years and swear by them. My two previous Toro mowers were 21" Super Recyclers with aluminum decks and rear bag. I had a John Deere rear bagger in between the two Toros.

Due to a back injury suffered in a car accident earlier this year, I had to purchase a self propelled mower as I could not push my 21" Super Recycler that was purchased 16 years ago (only issue with it was that it burned a little bit of oil and needed a new bag). As my yard... more

Bought the Toro Timemaster 30 from Home Depot today. Reconditioned and a sale on reconditioned. I got to the Toro 30 for a lot less than the stated $999. Have been researching all the stories and reviews. Got a little scared at all the start and gear issues. Checked and found that this one will only have a one year warranty as opposed to the 3yr on a new one. Disappointed that I cannot even buy a warranty. Put in gas, checked oil the mowed whole lawn in less than an hour, minus my heat... more

Fuel System Peobelms
Im at the beginning of my third mowing season. Within the first 3 months I had to have the carb cleaned and fuel system purged. The second season even worse, had to have fuel system rebuilt because, according to the authorized repair person, I used gas with ethanol in it. Wow. The first I ever heard heard of that!

So here it is May and I've used it 4 times. But now the pull cord wont budge! And fuel is shooting out of the exhaust! No, let me guess! Fuel problems AGAIN! And I'm using... more
