Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 341 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful, good combination of features, but loud Lawnmower was straightforward to assemble and use the first time. It cuts well with a powerful vacuum; the bag gets completely filled and does not spill grass out. The lawnmower could benefit from a larger gas tank as other reviewers have commented. It is very loud, necessitating the use of earmuffs; I try to mow on weekdays when the noise will bother less people. The walk-assist propulsion works very well, as does the electric start. After 3 months of mowing, it seems very reliable, but only time will tell. There are some parts of the bagging mechanism made out of hard plastic that I am suspicious may not last more than a few years. Overall this product works well and as advertised. The two biggest negatives that could be addressed by Toro are (1) the smallish gas tank, and (2) muffling the engine noise. If this lawnmower were priced several hundred $ less I could call it a good or even excellent value, but at its current price and after just 3 months of use, I can only call it an average value. October 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Don't buy 8 repairs in 3 months Warranty can take up to 6 weeks for single repair October 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great step up from a smaller walk-behind I had a 20" walk-behind mower when I moved into a new house with a larger (0.32 acre) yard. I really liked my previous walk-behind for its ease of storage and use, but it was taking too long for me to mow the new yard. I didn't want to get a ride-on mower because of storage concerns, and I am not a fan of pistol grips on mowers. The Toro TimeMaster is almost as easy to use and store as my previous mower, and cut my mowing time by about 40%. The handle is easy to fold up for storage and the electric start is convenient. I was able to mulch wet 7" tall grass as fast as I could walk, some of it while going uphill, without the engine ever bogging down. It is noticeably heavier than my previous mower, but that hasn't been an issue since I got used to the Personal Pace self-propel system. September 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Timemaster 30 in vs Cub Cadet 36 in This is a heavy mower but lacks the reverse and neutral gears of the Cub Cadet. Also no swivel wheels in the front. Still, due to its balanced weight distribution, one can tilt it back easily to maneuver around plants and trees. The rear drive wheels tend to spin on uneven ground. This coupled with the Toro personal pace can lead to unexpected lurch forward. To counteract this, just make sure not to push up on the handle when trying to move forward. Just push down and keep an eye on the right rear drive wheel to detect any spin. There is also an issue on hills. Probably we should only mow parallel to the hill because the mower could roll down the hill. Now, the safety handle would shut off the blade if the machine got away from you, i.e. started to roll down the hill, still one must be careful of this. On uneven ground with a gentle slope upwards, I find it best to mow at a slight angle to the slope, and then to back downward for the next swath. Anyway, it seems to work well for me, and prevents a turn at the swath end. I would not try this on anything more than a gentle slope though. By the way, I find it cuts very well, even with wet and or high grass, i.e. a few weeks growth. A hint for Toro: With a mower this heavy, how about a break to prevent it from rolling away. September 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Goats are better at mowing This mower was a bad purchase. This mower started with a recall on the deck pulleys. Toro did not have the parts available, so I'm without a mower for over 30 days. Once it was repaired, this mower bogs down in dry and wet conditions even with a high mower height and the discharge chute attached. This mower does propel well and is good on hills. However, I need it to mow grass which it does not. A $1200 mistake. My Husqvarna 19" outperforms this slug. September 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Under powered for tall grass I've had this mower now for several weeks and can report that it works well if you keep up with your mowing. I love the 30" cut and electric start. However if you get behind in your mowing, it will choke down in tall or wet grass. The deck holds grass and will need regular cleaning. It could also use a larger fuel tank and swivel wheels on the front end to help with maneuverability. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toro 30' This is the way to go when cutting grass. Easy to store when not in use. The key start makes it breeze to work with. Love this toy!!! August 2, 2016
