  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 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

Not Happy
The mower would not run. I called your service dept but due to your policies and procedures you recommended that I take the mower to a Toro service rep. I ordered the mower online because I do not have a truck. After spending 1k on a mower taking it to a service tech to fix it did not seam reasonable. I believe the person I spoke to wanted to help but your procedures are a joke.
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging, Poorly Put Together

Andrie,
Thank you for your order. We do appreciate your business. We apologize that your mower is not working as expected and understand your frustration. All engine equipment is covered by a warranty through the manufacturer. We will assist in any way possible, but we are required to follow the warranty process put forth by the manufacturer.

We can provide you with a list of local authorized service centers, as well as cover transportation costs up to $60 to have the center pick up/return the mower. We would just need you to submit a receipt.

If the service center deems the unit as irreparable due to defect, we would need something in writing from the service provider stating this so that we can work with the manufacturer to replace the item.

Disappointed In Michigan
Having purchased this mower last year I have had it back in the shop too many times. It is under-powered, it clogs up and makes a mess of the lawn, it leaked gas from the cap (which they replaced) then leaked again (they replaced the cap and gas tank).

The deck is poorly designed and misses grass of which you have to go over again. The clunky thing is very heavy and hard to handle. I tried to return it but with no avail. I would NOT recommend this mower!

Solid Mower, Great Company Instant Shipping
I bought this to replace an older 22" toro mower that was getting tired. I really like the personal pace feature that my old mower had and was of the reasons I chose this. This 32" twin blade mower is a nice step up. Powerful motor and strong vacuum does a nice job when bagging.

I have only used it once but much of the hardware on the mower has more beef to it compared to the 22" inch and it should last many seasons. The only thing is that I wish it had a larger fuel... more

Horrible Mower
Not worth the money they ask for it. 2 years old and have so many problems with it , that the dealership where I bought it will not service it anymore. They told me to call Toro. belts wear out fast, broken on / off switch, transmission cable broke, engine smokes like hell, engine has a hair line crack and leaks oil. Do not buy this mower you will be sorry.

So Far So Good
I have used the mower about half a dozen time so far & it works as advertised. Takes a little getting use to the speed control when cutting around areas that you need to maneuver in and out of, but for the open straight stretches it's great. Love the wheel adjustment, and the deck cleaning feature is very nice.

Makes Mowing The Lawn Almost Fun Again
I love it. Cuts yard work in half. I used to have a Troy-Bilt mower. It was 33 inches. I lost it in a fire a few years ago. I've been using a 21 inch, so I found this 30 inch mower. Makes mowing the lawn almost fun again.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Features, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, Heavy

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

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
