Rated 5 out of 5 Great Mower
I still can't believe how awesome this mower is. My grass was a little damp and a little tall and the mower plowed through it without any issues. This is my first mower with the Personal Pace system and it was awesome. The mwer itself is very easy to maneuver as well. The clippings were mulched very fine and the cleanup was easy with the wash out port. And being able to put the handle up is a huge space savings in my garage. If you read a bad review for this mower it has to be operater error. I used to landscape and I know a good mower when I use one.

First self-propelled mower I have owned. Not really any troubles with it, except that it seem to be leaving some random blades of grass, but a good sharpening of the blades seemed to solve that. always starts and very easy to use and maintain.

Rated 3 out of 5??by 52zmaster works good for a flat yard only
as others have reported it does not like inclines if you have to stop and turn around it is 1 wheel drive which spins the tire alot and can barely pull itself up inclines compared to my 21",the bag needs to be made like the commercial version with the cut out on the top to let grass come out of the bag easily,it does bag nice and mulch`s the grass nice when dry,mine is for sale not worth keeping used 3 times,i love there commercial walk behind mowers have a 36" proline t-bar that is over 11 years old and 800 hrs still works great

Rated 5 out of 5??by Biker I left out a review for dependability as I only bought it yesterday, and could not be happier.
In my 76 years,and many mowers. I have 1 acre+ to mow, some inclines up to about 15 degrees, in and out of trees. So far I love it. I also had a great experience w/the dealer,:Waldrup Chain Saw: Carrollton, GA. could have gotten it cheaper on line, but I like to do my buisness with home folks, and near someone for parts and service. My grass had grown to above ankle, (because my Snapper mid engine 30" had broken again). Had to go about half speed in both bagger and mulch modes at 2-3/4 height, w/no bogging in tall fescue with no missed grass. Much cleaner cut than w/aformentioned Snapper.I feel sure I will find more to be happy about. Was worried about the 190cc on 30" mower, no need to be, plenty power.

I bought my timemaster last fall before the end of the grass cutting season. I have had no problems so far. It cuts without any trouble. The electric start is a plus .. +++++!!! No pulling helps keep you fresh before you cut. THe quality in this is shown with the decking (as an example) being of commercial thickness. The only problem i found .. grass ( IF WET) will collect under the decking and will cause the grass not to mulch into the bag properly. And that's not a negative, wet grass will cause this to happen. I HIghly Recommend this to anyone that has 1 acre or less to cut their yard. AND for the record.. how many push lawnmowers have u seen with steel wheels? THis lawnmower had rubber tires with plastic rims. They have held up well so far. Very little wear and tear after 8 cuts.
MOney WELL SPENT!

Rated 1 out of 5??by Schlitzie How is this thing getting 5 stars?
Amazing, as I have complained to Toro directly, who said they have no record of clogging issues, and my dealer, who gave me a strange look and inferred I was expecting too much as he had sold over 20 of them and "he had no complaints". There is no way anyone could be satisfied with this machine given how it performs. All the 5 star reviews must be coming from the design engineers mothers... The most irritating challenge with the Timemaster is having to check the weather report for absolutely dry forecasts and then the grass itself, as any moisture at all on the lawn makes cutting a major chore. It clogs up and jams the bagging chute, and then spits out big clumps of grass clippings all over the place. Having to stop to flip the machine over and scrape the deck clean three times on a half acre lawn makes it a frustrating process. And I keep the blades sharp! Strongly recommend another machine until Toro redesigns the Timemaster in its entirety.

This mower is not ready for prime time. It is underpowered for spring growth (and I cut twice a week at that time) as it bogs down routinely in rye/bluegrass. The blades are poor too as they do not create any suction, so you end up with blades of grass it missed all over the place - not a manicured cut. The wheels are plastic - in one season I broke the two fronts, and I am not rough with it - it is just a cheap cost saving move by Toro. But the absolute most irritating problem is that it clogs like crazy if the grass isn't absolutely dry. It got to the point where it wasn't worth the frustration to try and cut the lawn if it had rained within the past 48 hours as the timemaster deck becomes coated with a thick grass clipping paste - and I bag, don't mulch. I thought the 30" width would save time, but it has too many deficiencies to be worth it. Really needs a complete re-design

The electric start works great. I am 6' tall and can almost speed walk at its top speed. The mower can mulch or easily convert to side discharge. Either way, the clippings are finely chopped. Our 22" Sears mower left piles on a regular basis. The blade stop is its best feature. I can stop to pick up a stick or rock, while the engine keeps idling.
