Rated 1 out of 5??by Campbellean Been in the shop more than I've used it.
I was very excited to get this mower after moving to a new house with a little over an acre. However, it's been in the shop more than I've been able to use it since I got it last March.
The 30' blade is great and the maneuverability is good for a larger mower. However, I just can't seem to keep it working. Too bad, now I'm stuck with it. Wish I could trade it in b/c I paid too much for it to just get rid of it.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Arborman When a 21" is too little and a 36" is too big
From what I've read there are so many people that if only they had read the manual, they'd have had a completely different experience. Not to mention a perfect rating.
I run a professional landscape business and decided to go with this mower over their commercial version. I am greatly satisfied with my decision.
I needed something that could cut mowing time almost in half (over our Toro 21") and that could fit, maneuver, and not tear up the turf while doing it. Bam! TimeMaster!
To all those saying the hose cleaning system doesn't work: The deck hose cleaning system works great if you follow the instructions. Lower the mower and turn the blades on while running the water.
It has plenty of power. Does perfectly fine on most any terrain(it has power, do you?). Most of what I read that is negative about this mower is due to user error and inexperience. Plenty of power and keeps up with our much more expensive larger mowers. No reason not to love what this mower can do!

Rated 5 out of 5??by IrishFan Best Mower I've Used
I've used a lot of lawn mowers in my time, and this ranks up there as the best. I bought it early in the season, and have used it routinely 1-2 times a week. I love it as much at the end of the season as I did at the beginning. Easy to start, operate, clean. If you are looking for a new mower, this is the one.

Rated 5 out of 5??by RickL Does all I need it to do, especially reducing the amount of trimming I have to do.
Great cut. Mulching is great even when I cut high grass. Quite durable so far altho engine sounds like it is struggling when putting it in gear for cutting.
Nitnoy stuff -- Not to good a hose connection and changing the oil is a bit messy if you are not careful. I can live with these problems.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Trashman55 This mower is everything it's cracked up to be and more.
I'm a 58 year old, somewhat disabled man who bailed out of a zero-turn rider because using that, despite it's manueverability still had me firing up a 21" walk behind. I spend less time caring for my lawn; use less space in my garage; get a superior cut and appearance; really don't expend anymore effort; and simply cannot believe that this concept - a twin-blade, residential walk-behind that's not trying to mimic a commercial walk-behind, but is giving a lot of homeowners just what we need, is the only choice in the market. Admittedly, if there were a choice, I can't believe I'd buy anything other than this Toro. I just cannot find fault with it, having used it an entire season.

Rated 1 out of 5??by buburayam Think twice or more
I bought this walk behind for my 1.22 acre so my wife or I could get in a good walk. I do like the 30" cutting area. The self pace propelled feature is nice. What I don't like is the belt having to be replaced after 6 to 8 times just after we bought it. It had to go back in after about 8 uses this season. It needed a belt again as well as another component that has to do with turning the belt that drives the blades.

Rated 3 out of 5??by Miro Great maneuverability. Other areas need improvement
I have been using this mower for 4 months on my ?? acre property.
The self propulsion works great, and the mower is easy to maneuver.
It is easy to start cold, but not when engine is warm. I often run out of gas when I am almost done. I wish the gas tank was just a little larger. After I refill it, it is difficult to start.
The mower is short on power, making mulching almost impossible except in thin and dry grass.
So, I always use side discharge. But here, when grass is wet, the chute clogs easily. I have to stop to clean it. While doing so, I keep the engine idling, or I would have to struggle to restart it.
The deck wash feature does not work. I have to turn the mower on its side, and scrape the deck with a piece of wood.
Great marketing idea. Poor engineering execution.
