In bagging-mode, the powerful airflow will force the clippings at speed into the high-volume fabric catcher with no debris left to spoil your lawn’s aesthetics; while in side-discharge mode – which is best for longer grass – the clippings are ejected to the right of the mower, thereby ensuring they won’t get tangled around your feet.
The Toro 20976 TimeMaster Twin Cut Lawnmower has been fitted with a powerful, professional-grade Briggs & Stratton 1000-Series engine, which features the acclaimed US manufacturer’s ReadyStart® system, whereby choke-application and carburettor priming are done-away with for hassle-free ignition (1000-Series engines benefit from B & S’s ‘Two-Pull or Less’ guarantee).
High-specification engine features include an overhead-valve (OHV) that works to improve fuel-economy and to lessen noise and vibration; and a commercial-duty air-management system that ensures reduced debris intake, which in turns extends the life of key components.
Thanks to Toro’s variable-speed AutoMatic Drive, which matches the mower’s ground-speed to your walking-pace, the Toro 20976 TimeMaster will enable you to cover slopes and undulating ground with ease; and of course, you’ll be able to work at the most effective speed for the conditions (should the terrain prove very challenging, you can engage Traction Assist).
Its lightweight build; low-profile design; and out-front wheels make it surprisingly easy to manoeuvre around trees and common garden obstacles; while its steel cutter-deck and cast-aluminium chassis combine to ensure you’ll get season-after-season of unfailing service from your purchase.
It might be a fairly large machine, but, thanks to Toro’s Quick Stow handle-collapse mechanism, the TimeMaster will take up minimal space in your storage area, especially when compared to ride-on mowers with the same width-of-cut.
A blade-brake clutch means you don’t have to stop the engine to stop the blades, which is particularly handy when emptying the contents of the grassbag; while a two-point adjutsable height-of-cut, which can be set between 32 and 108mm, makes it possible to achieve great results on both short and long grass.
