How does this mower do on steep slopes?

I have a small, but steep slope that I mow with a 21" Honda self-propelled mower and I have tried out larger mowers but they all will not stay on the slope. I believe this is due to the front wheels being on casters and the weight. I am having to replace my mower and would love to have a larger one and this is the only one i can find that is basically like a regular mower just larger.

Greetings, My name is Tom, also known as HD116 at Home Depot's How to Community. I saw this mower back in February at a new product "road show". Put simply it is amazing. I bought a personal pace Toro seven years ago as I have a bad knee and severe slopes in a very big yard. It worked flawlessly even with extreme slopes. This is a larger, more powerful version of the same mower. The reviews are phenomenal with one exception (but there is always one exception for some reason.) If you get it and are not thrilled I will be quite surprised. In the event that you do, simply return it to your local store. Thank you for your question and I hope that helps.

The mower moves to slow is there a way to increase the speed?

Asked by: billk1
Most likely the cable stretched between the handle and the drive. There is a convenient knob adjustment for this on the newer models and a wrench adjustment on older ones. There are a couple of You Tube videos showing the process of adjusting the cable casing so as to shorten the cable. Hope this helps.

Time Master and Exmark Commercial 30 only ones like this?

My research shows there are only two mower models like this available to the American consumer. What I mean "like this" is that they are traditional looking and operating walk-behinds, but have a wider-than-standard width cut. The only exception is a Gravely Pro 24, but that's only a two inch increase from standard. Is this right? Are there any others? One-thousand bucks is alot of money for adding cutting width. I could get three well-equipped, equally-featured, 21-22 inch mowers for this price.
Asked by: gregsfc
Yes and the real difference isn't so much the cost but the cutting height! The same cut for the Professional Walk behinds is "Less" than the Toro. More cash but less cutting height ?? I am now looking into the Exmark since my Toro already broke down within 3 weeks of use! The Toro lacks serious power too!

Customer Reviews

TimeMaster 30 in. Personal Pace Variable Speed Walk Behind Gas Self Propelled Mower with Briggs & Stratton Engine is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 997.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lawn Mower In My Book 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.

I've had this mower about a month, only used it twice so i'm giving it 4/5 stars and i'll explain why. First i'm happy with the performance. I cut an hour and fifteen minute job down to about 40 minutes. The mower is nimble enough that anyone comfortable with a 22" toro will be able to use this. It is more bulky sure but nimble enough to go around your trees etc. The cut is nice and I like that the mower can be running when the blades are not engaged. I had read in other reviews about mechanical issues so I went ahead and purchased the 3 year warranty. Hopefully like buying an umbrella I won't need it. Now why didn't I give it 5 stars? Well it runs out of gas 3/4 way through my yard. So either its a gas hog (which I expect from a powerful mower) or the tank needs to be a bit larger (which is probably more the issue.) I have about .5 acre to mow with a house in the center so really its less. I get the front done and midway through the back the mower dies. I can actually see gas in the bottom which is unlike other Toro's I had where they run down to the fumes. So I had to learn a new habit. Mow the front, top off and finish the back. If I was going to make the next version of this mower better i'd enlarge the tank a bit so that you can do an entire yard in one job. OR find out why it runs out of gas before the tank is actually empty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Master of Time 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Likes to stay in the shop 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from KEEPS GETTING BETTER 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 out of 5 by from Very pleased. Great cut and plenty powerful but could use a larger fuel tank. I wasn't going to write a review unless I had issues, but have since decided I would write one to help out the community. I actually have a fairly large lush yard and a nice John Deere X320 but have decided I want to get more exercise and prefer the cut quality of a push mower. I avoided this mower because of all the negative reviews and started my journey with 21-22 inch walk behinds. I first purchased a Husqvarna HU700H 160cc from Lowes and took it back after mowing with it twice. The transmission made a horrible grinding noise at slow speeds and it was under powered in my very lush and healthy St. Augustine. I then went to HomeDepot and purchased the Honda HRX217VYA with Select Drive with Blade Stop. I'm a fairly healthy 5'9" 38 year old and had a hard time keeping up with this mower on its slowest setting. There seems to be no walk setting. The cut quality was very good, but the select drive ergonomics and speed were just horrible. Took it back after 3 uses. After spending what felt like about 2 hours cutting with these smaller mowers, I decided to throw caution to the wind and step up to the 30" TimeMaster. I just assumed by all the negative reviews I'd probably be taking it back as well, but it was worth the risk. So far, I couldn't be happier. Engine cranks 99% of the time on the first pull and 100% if a second pull is needed. The personal pace system is by far better than the systems on both husky and honda and it now takes a bit less time to mow. My biggest complaint is the size of the fuel tank. I can't quite complete the job on one tank and have to fill up. On a mower this size, the tank should be bigger. I suggest a half gallon instead of the .3 it comes with. The people claiming it's under powered must be mowing very wet tall grass or bush hogging with it. I can tell it's working when I get into the thick stuff, but nothing it can't handle and certainly nothing to complain about. It struggles less than the husky 22" did on my lawn, so I think it's plenty powerful enough when comparing. I even mulched when my grass was a little wet and didn't get any of the clumping or clogging issues others have mentioned. I can only assume they are cutting very tall grass. Mine is very thick but I also follow the 1/3rd rule and it handles it fine wet or dry. Because I keep it well fertilized, I typically have to cut twice a week. I've never been a big fan of Briggs engines and time will tell on longevity. I'm fairly handy with repairing and maintaining small engines and can handle my own repairs, but others may not have that luxury. I can understand anyone wanting to avoid the Briggs and that's just a personal choice you have to make or risk you have to take. I read a lot of negative reviews about slow blade engagement and engine power. Even the honda needed to be engaged slowly. I did test a couple quick engagements and it handled it. I've operated a lot of equipment, heavy and small, and slow blade engagement is common practice and seems fine to me. So far so good. I'm glad I took a chance. If you get one that's a dud, take it back for another. I know that's a hassle, but I think it's worth it. If mine goes bad within the 30 day return period, I'll certainly take it back for a replacement. I like it that much.
