Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scalewoodman Hilly Lot: GO FOR IT!
We have a miserable hilly lot. I mow about 3/4 acre. This is by far the best mower I've ever owned- many thoughtful features including a very nice drive system and a low center-of-gravity-- obviously designed by people who understand mowing. I always thought of Toro as the 'golf course' brand and so far couldn't be happier with this purchase. Started first pull. Handled rough grass with ease + being able to adjust speed according to conditions is a nice aspect. First mow cut my time in half and I wasn't nearly as tired as with the previous mower (Gravely WAW). AND it eliminated the need to go back and trim/edge with my smaller mower AND cut in a few places where I'd struggled for years. Highly recommend.

Over the years I have purchased many lawn mowers. The Timemaster 30 inch mower does just what is says, it actually saves you time. I also noticed that is cuts the grass into really fine pieces so if you bag like me you will have many bags, I love this mower!!!!!! I should have bought this mower a long time ago. The only con I have is the catcher does catch the grass but it does allow some dust and grass to blow back on you. Otherwise, I love this mower. I don't usually leave reviews but I had to on this one.

This is a great lawnmower. Overtime it will pay itself off with the 7 additional inches of deck you get. I just wish the bag and the fuel tank were bigger.
It's very easy to use and easy to maintain. My yard is .57 acres and in my opinion not big enough for a 42 inch riding lawnmower, but too big for a regular 22 inch mower. I wish the price was a little less, but this really is the Cadillac of lawnmowers and one of the few lawnmowers in this size.

I love my TORO Timemaster 30 inch mower. I have used a Timemaster at my work for many years. TORO products are typically excellent products. This mower has been on the market for a few years now but TORO keeps making improvements on it . They have beefed up different parts by switching from plastic to metal. They have added extra material in the corner of the bagger where it would typically wear out. For this year they have also added a metal plate to the front of the engine to protect the carb and throttle assembly. The engine is still underpowered for cutting thru really tall or wet grass. But for the average homeowner the larger deck will make short work of your weekend mowing projects.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mario4Three One full season of use after 10 years with a Honda 21"
Hard to give up the Honda motor but moved to a house with a much larger lawn and with two little kids wanted to cut down on the mow time. Not too many options out there for large cut, walk behind mowers that are well built and are moderately priced. Pretty good investment from what I can tell so far. One full season into this mower and really the only issue I've seen is in the grass catcher which has holes starting to from from the tabs toward the back/bottom of the shoot (pictures attached). Nice stripes (3rd picture attached and without the Toro accessory). Replaced the oil after the first couple of uses with synthetic and and will continue on each year with. I usually leave the cut height towards the 2nd to highest level setting and when the grass grows thick and tall in the spring the motor does seem to be slightly underpowered as others have mentioned. However, it really hasn't been an issue since I just slow the pace down a bit and adjust. I'll say the old Honda still starts up on the first pull every time even after 10 years. The Toro, usually on the first pull but sometimes it takes two :) I'd probably give it 4.5 stars if I could.

First year the blade in gage cable broke. This year the idler pulley broke burning up the blades. Looking at the puller it just fell apart. Got that fixed and the second time I used it the blade in gage cable broke again.

Extremely pleased with how this large walk behind lawn mower handles in tight corners. In addition, this mower automatically keeps the pace YOU want to keep and never forces you to speed up or slow down. Hill performance is amazing. This is exactly the mower I was looking for.
