  5 Questions
Q: Does the TimeMaster 30" mower have the same plastic gears in the rear drive wheels similar to the 22" mulching machines? Thank you.





by Andy from New York on May 06, 2016

A: Andy - the gear pinion (part #110-9417) on the Toro TimeMaster mowers is made of metal.
by Jose, Product Expert
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

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

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!
Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
John,
"We are sorry to hear you are having problems with your Toro mower. Below are some tactics you can try to improve power loss during mowing:
• Dirty Air Filter on Your Lawn Mower: Clean or replace.
• Cutting Tall Grass: Raise the cutting height on your lawn mower
• Dirty Spark Plug: Clean or replace.
• Build Up of Clippings & Debris: Clean underside of your lawn mower deck

If you are still experiencing issues with your Toro mower, please bring your unit to the nearest dealer for servicing. Please call our customer service number if you have any other questions (888) 384-9939 (toll free)."

As Expected, It Is Just What I Needed.
I have approx. 1/2 acre lot with the back half of the yard being on a decent slope. I previously had a 42" riding mower but it did not work well with the hill and was too wide to cut around my boulevard trees.

This mower was just right, it has plenty of power to get up the hill and cuts the mowing time down by 1/3.

The personal pace controls work great, and the unit starts up by the second pull every time, even for my 12 year old daughter. The only thing I have noticed so far is... more

A Great Mower
Great customer service timely and friendly delivery well packed easy to assemble started immediately. Great controls speed and speed control very user friendly. I frequently change the cutting height and Toro made it simple easy to read etc.

Cuts good, easy to maneuver. Really like the handle storage and ability to leave the mower running while moving branches and other items in the way. Well worth the money. Does bog down the engine when grass is high.

Big Disapointment
Purchased mower June of 2013. Mulches and bags grass well. Worked well first year and a half. Cuts great on flat terrain but will not pull up modest hill of my walk out. Took mower in yearly for service.

Sept. of 2015 belt broke and did $171.00 in damage to pedestal bearings, blades, and was not charged for all repairs, but took three weeks in shop.

April 2016, I suspect tension pulley shot craps and been in shop nearly four weeks as shop says parts on order. Using my Honda HRX with bad... more

Big Time Saver
The 30" cut, compared to any 21" or 22" mower is significant in reducing mowing time (about 50%) and the drive is better than any smaller mower I have ever owned even up hill. The grass catcher is efficient and reduces the number of times I need to empty the bag by about half too.

A great mower!

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.

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."
