Questions & Answers

What is the life of the mower?

How many hours can one expect to get out of this mower using excellent maintainence.
Asked by: leoj
I bought the 2016 model Toro Timemaster in May. I love this thing. Cuts beautiful. I have just about 400 hours on the mower as of today and I've only had to replace 2 vbelts for the blade engagement, one pulley for the blades and the obvious oil, air filters, and spark plugs. That is it. I even have the original blades still just had them sharpened after some heavy rocks. My mower is showing some wear but it's still running very well. I highly recommend this mower

There seems to be some doubt about the ability of this mower to work on inclinces... can it mow on a 10% grade?

Asked by: Papa
The self propel will be weak going UP at 10%... you will have to push. I would mow sideways on the hill, it will work.

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 1085.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from too many fill-ups I bought this to cut my yard quicker and cut down on work. It seems like a nice mower, though I feel I have to go slower. The cut looks good and I like the ability to change from mulcher to side throw. It has came in handy this spring when the grass grows faster and weather does not permit timely mowing. One issue that bothers me is the fact that I have to fill it up twice just to get my lawn mowed. I have never had to do this with any mower. I cannot even mow my backyard without running out of gas. Apparently this needs a larger fuel tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I've been looking at this mower for the last year and finally pulled the trigger and picked one up today. You can't even compare this to my 22" Toro. The 30" Timemaster is like mowing your lawn with a go-kart. Yeah you're walking behind but the pace is so fast (should you choose a fast pace) it feels like no other lawn mower I've ever used before. I can't believe the other mfg. haven't made a mower for this class. In any event if you have the 1K to spend on a mower for a yard that is beeter suited for a push mower this is the one. You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suburbanite's dream mower I have one of those yards that's just a little too big. I had been looking for a time saver solution for over a year. I thought the solution was a riding mower so I bought a small 30" John Deere rider. Due to my landscaping and odd shaped yard there was zero time savings, the yard looked like horrible because I had overlap and the tires matted the grass. Needless to say I took my lumps, traded in my month old rider and bought the "Beast". I fricken love this thing. Seriously, winter is starting and I miss her already. They named this thing right, you will save time, it's easy to use, cuts even, and the striping in the yard is beautiful. I could go on and on but simply put; stop searching, I know what you're going through trying to decide on a rider or this machine. If you have a large to mid-size yard with landscaping and are a stickler on your yard striping and neatness...buy this bad boy. Regular Guy Rob

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong mower for large lawn residential use or very light-duty commercial use As a life-long Toro advocate and past owner of a medium-sized commercial lawn service (200 yards per week), I read hundreds of reviews of this mower on various websites before finally purchasing at my local Home Depot. I am not a paid reviewer for Toro or Home Depot. Before discussing the mower attributes, let me remind everyone that you have 30 days to "trial" this mower and can return it to Home Depot if it falls short. (this is the main reason I purchased from Home Depot instead of a little dealer) Furthermore, a 3 year engine start and overall warranty is nothing to sniff at. (I think it would have been 5 years if Toro was not worried about some commercial operators beating the snot out of it - even though it is not marketed for full-on commercial use) Ok - now for the review of the mower, as it relates to some of the complaints that I saw posted by others. POWER - I would say that it may be slightly under-powered overall, but it has enough to get the job done. Some have said that when they engage the blades that the engine really bogs down before returning to working rpms. That is correct, but so do extremely powerful engines on commercial Toro 32, 36 and larger walk-behinds that I have used in the past. GROUND SPEED - There is more than adequate ground speed generated by this mower. That said, if someone is at a dead stop and faced with a very steep hill ahead of them, it may not be up to snuff. The way to think about the use of this machine on hills is like driving a car with turbo-lag. What I mean is that it is best to plan for the hill and kick it into speed before you meet the hill as it takes just a moment for the transmission to really spool up and take off when you really want some juice. FUEL LEAK - I have not personally experienced or had any of my 5 local private dealers and 2 Home Depot's report experiencing a fuel leak. I will be the first to report if I see otherwsie. FAULTY ENGINE SHUT OFF SWITCH - Some have said that their shut off switch does not work. While I am sure that this is a likely problem with some, I think I have figured out the problem for others. When depressing the off switch, you need to hold it down until the engine comes to a complete stop. Letting up on the switch any sooner and the engine will roar back to life. So be patient, you just finished mowing and the beer will wait. QUALITY OF CUT - First comment here is that after mowing for the first time I realized that the blades that come from the factory are anything but sharp. Keep that in mind with your first cutting. Second - I think there is something to needing high-lift blades and or fiddling with the front end of the mower being a bit lower than the back to optimize cut quality. All those comments aside, I found the cut to be really good my first go around. The striping was attractive and I did not experience any of the "mohawk" down the middle or missed grass on my first mowing. I did just mulch this time around so have not tested bagging or side-discharge capabilites. DESIGN AND VERSATILITY - The mower is very easy to use as reported. The easy-stow handle is really versatile and makes storing the mower a snap. I hope that the pivot/set points stay stable as time evolves. Someone on one of the posts that I read said that an extra 9 inches of cutting deck does not equal 40% more speed in mowing. When I divide 9 inches by 21 inches I actually get almost 43% improvement. I would say that I had at least that much reduction in time mowing my lawn which is almost half an acre in size. Overall it is also much easier to use and not as hard on the body as larger commercial walk-behinds that I have used in the past. Even T-bar equipped Toro commercial walk-behinds take alot more skill and brute force to wheel around than this thing. Now that I do not do it for a living, I think I can give up some inches on the deck for less wear-and-tear on the body. Overall - This is a great concept, put out by a great company. Time will tell if I or any other early purchasers were wise to buy this mower. Right now I would bet that it will serve me well for years to come. In the meantime, I plan on really running it through its paces for the next 30 days!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Cut, Fast I just used my new Toro Timemaster for the 1st time and I'm loving it. I had a 33inch walk behind mower that I liked for its speed, but was frustrated by its poor mulching capability. It takes me 1 hour to mow my 1/3 acre with a 21" mower, took me 40 minutes with the 33", and took me 35 min with the 30" Timemaster. The Toro is faster because of the personal pace system, it also takes less time than the 33" to go around the swingset, trees, etc because it is lighter and can be pulled back with one hand. The mulching on this Toro is very good, way better than my 33" and almost as good as my neighbors 21" "H" mulching mower that I've used the past few weeks. The only thing it could use is caster front wheels to make mowing around beds easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels like a commercial mower I have never been compelled to write a review about a product, but this mower prompted me to tell all about it. This mower is solid, has a lot of power, has a wider cut, and is well built. I like that the mower is rear-wheel drive, so it grips and powers up hills, and the self-pace mechanism with traction bar can go as fast as you want (jog) or as slow as you want with no issue. I also love that you can disengage the blade while keeping the mower running. This product is a game changer because it fills the void between tractor and 22" mower - beautifully. I bet for most suburban lawns, with any amount of flower beds, trees, or sidewalks to maneuver around, this machine is optimal, since you can stop, cut around tight areas and still have the top speed and width to cover lots of open grass. I am thrilled with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Bad I bought this mower for two main reasons: #1 the dual blade set up and #2, the personal pace drive system. (If you never had the personal pace set up, you will love it). Another bonus is that this mower starts up with one pull.. (no priming or chocking required) period..Hope it stays that way.. I rated it a little lower on ease of use because It doesn't really have good traction on a moderate incline..so at times it feels just a little heavy.. even without the bag.. As far as the actual cutting, it seems to have plenty of power and the extra width due to the twin blades is nice to save time . Overall, I don't know that it's worth a$1000 I paid but if it were about $700 or $800 I'd say it wouid be right on target. Hope this helps..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought this mower with great expectations and was initially pleased with the purchase. I've had i... Bought this mower with great expectations and was initially pleased with the purchase. I've had it for about a year. It starts easily and dependably, and cuts well under ideal circumstances, i.e., grass that is dry and not too long. But if your grass is just slightly wet, long, or both, it is painfully inferior. I've been mowing my own lawn for over 45yrs and have used just about every brand of residential mower on the market. Never has one performed so poorly under just slightly adverse circumstances. If you live where rains a fair amount during the summer, this is an unwise purchase. It is severely under powered. And Toro's suggestions to compensate for the inferior design are hilariously idiotic.
