  4 Questions
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.

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

The Best Machine I've Ever Owned
I bought a Toro 20199 last season from my local dealer because I wanted the ability to return it and cancel the credit card payment should the machine turn out to be a piece of junk as others have stated.

What I found is this:
It will mulch cut tall “wet grass” 8 – 10 inches on the high deck setting with ease with a little bogging. There will be clumps that can be dispersed with a blower. It wont bag or side discharge because the deck ports get plugged with the “wet grass”. Also on “wet... more

Nothing But Problems!!!
I wanted a little larger mower for my lawn service and didn't want to spend $3,000 on a big mower so I got the Toro 30" mower for $1,000 from a local dealer who recommended it.

It was fast, but thats about it. Like other reviews say, good luck going up a slight incline. If u do, it starts to smoke. Tall grass...NO. Don't even try cutting it.

Then the self propel went out. Dealer fixed it then it did it again. The self propel went out 4 times within 3 months of purchase!! Took 1 month... more

Worth The Extra Money
After I ordered this mower I told my family I traded money for time. Today was my first mow with the Time master. It did not disappoint.

After a week of rain my grass was a little damp. This mower powered right through it in the mulching mode. It went up the hills with no problem. My lawn looks fantastic.

My only two gripes so far are: I had a hard time reading my oil dipstick and I pinched my fingers a few times while mowing. I am very happy with the Toro Timemaster
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Durable, Light Weight
Cons: Expensive

Saves You Time .............
Great piece of equipment easy to start and operate. On level ground this mower really does the job, can cut mowing time by 30-40%. No problem cutting through deeper grass and clumping not an issue.

The mower can be a handful on slopes and damp grass. It is a big mower and can be a bit much to maneuver if footing is touchy or if you are slight of build. Overall under normal grass cutting conditions this mower really does the job and quickly too.

Great Mower
Opened the box, tightened the handles, oil, gas and she was ready.

Started on a dime and the self propelling feature really cuts down mowing time. Very pleased!

The Best Mower Ever!
This is by far the best mower I have ever used. It started the first pull out of the box.

It cuts the time I spend mowing by at least 40 or 45 percent. It is easy to handle and turns great.

The cut is even and looks great either on the level surface or the hill I have in back. At 60 years old, I finally got a mower that I love to use.

Works Like It Should If You Read The Instructions
I first looked at one a few years ago but the recall for broken blades scared me off. After I was sure the problems were fixed I bought one. Got mine from a local Toro dealer since they set it up, added oil, filled the gas tank and ran it to show me how the controls operate.

So far I've used it 4 times with the bag and I like it. Had to adjust the Personal Pace cable cause it was way too fast. Removed the nut and replaced it with a knob so I could custom tune it during use. Did this with 3... more

Critical Improvements For This Great Product
I could write a book on my experiences with this unique 30" mower. Had to return 42" Ariens after 2 uses, too rough on my back and neck fusion and unsafe on too sloped back yard. HD took it back, and also my first 2013 TimeMaster, as it had metal in the oil after 3 changes. Gave me the floor demo from 2012. Was missing any fuel filter (Briggs service bulletin), and not painted well underneath, and curled bag bottom prevented filling.

In short the critical improvements are:

"I searched everywhere and finally found there was a fix for the Toro Time Master 30" mower, poor bagging and damp grass performance. Mowers Direct was the ONLY place that had both 2012 and 2013 model kits. Also this replaces the RECALL on one hub I believe, for the 2013 model. Great service and fast shipping. This should be added to the comments as I did, for ALL earlier model owners! Mower Depot should re-sell the Home Depot small metal disc (white plastic) fuel filter as the paper ones don't work with such little gravity feed and include their $9.00 fuel cutoff and hose kit. Much safer and FULLY empties the tank when running."

I wanted a walk-behind, self-propelled mower that had a large cutting width, and this turned out to be a great solution. It's easy to use and does a great job. I really like the variable speed control.
