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.

Just Got It !!
I have been wanting this mower, or similar size for 4 years. Finally, I did, purchased from Mowers Direct a week ago. was delivered yesterday, 7/26/2016. The entire experience was awesome, prompt service, nice people, even the carrier was nice when he dropped off my mower (I was at work) he put the huge box in my garage !! no charge.. I got home, immediately opened the box, it was so simple.

It is fully assembled, mulch plug already installed, bag in the box, oil and gas treatment,... more

Worst Machine Ever
I have owned this piece of garbage for four years. The shoot intake is to small and constantly gets jammed with cut grass. It cant handle mowing if the grass has the littlest bit of moisture. The engine is too small to pick up 30" of grass cutting. Toro's response, " cut half the amount on your rows." If that's the case, why name it the Timemaster.

After a year of fighting with customer service and a letter writing campaign, Toro admit guilt and promised to send me a 100%... more

Eric,
We are sorry to hear you are having problems with your Toro mower. We recommend adjusting the height of cut to a higher setting. This will lessen the amount of grass you are attempting to mow at one time, reducing these instances. You can also try to improve power loss during mowing with these tips:
• 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 please call our customer service number at (888) 384-9939 (toll free).

Disappointed
Bought one locally from a Toro dealer in 2012. Had to replace 2 belts last year and the BBC cable this year. Today, the blade belt snapped, damaging the drive belt and the blades hit each other. The drive cable is now damaged as well. The performance was always just so-so. The engine is too small for this size cut, which makes it difficult to cut when the grass is even slightly damp. The discharge chute to the bag gets clogged frequently, leaving clumps of grass behind. Even though it is only 4... more

Great Cuts But Lacks Power!
I love the cutting finish and is a really smooth machine and so easy to start but it definitely needs more power. It dies if you try to force it a bit with higher grass.

Great Upgrade
Mower ready to use right out of the box. Add oil and gasoline and you're ready to go. I was excited to see how this 30" would perform and wow did it meet my expectations. I thought It would be hard to maneuver, but it was quite the opposite.

The Personal Pace system is really nice... smooth, easy to use - even with one hand, easy to pull backwards, and easy to lift, pivot and make turns. Large bag is great, cut is great, overall great mower for residential use.

I cannot speak for... more

6 Months Old...blown Engine
Absolutely loved this mower for the first 6 months! The first brand new mower that I have ever bought. Treated it like my first car. Even gave it a spot in the garage instead of the shed. Started it up one day and engaged blades. Immediately started to bog down and ultimately quit/seized.

Checked oil (good) and was able to restart after 15 minutes but engine blew hole in the block shortly after. Owned three other mowers (used) in my life and never had an actual engine failure. Toro... more

Exceeded Expectations
I have used the Toro TimeMaster 30 twice and my wife used it once. We are both thrilled with it. I wanted a walk behind mower that was fast and the Toro almost requires you to jog to keep up with it at its fastest speed.

And the personal pace self-propel system was a great surprise - it makes handling the mower around trees and shrubs a breeze. The mower mulches the grass much finer than any mower I have owned. So far we think it is great and highly recommend it.

Great Mower
I have owned the 22 inch Personal Pace for many years to cut around trees in a large yard and liked it. Now I have a smaller yard but still too large for the 22".

Also my yard has a steep slope. In reading the reviews about the 30 inch, I was concerned about the slope but it has plenty of power to pull the grade without any problem. Also it has a very smooth level cut.

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

Toro Timemaster® (30")(2016 Model) Excellent Value & Toro Warran
I have a one-man lawn maintenance company in a college town and bought this mower to improve my margin and efficiency mowing small yards (mow path 30in v. 21in). I understand this is the Residential model but I am familiar with Toro quality and their adaptation of the ExMark commercial model (I bought a Wheel Horse tractor right after Toro bought W H so this is a similar circumstance).

The mower arrived needing a minor warranty fix, no fault of PED, and this was done quickly without drama... more
