What really marks it out from its competitors is its massive 76cm width-of-cut; the same as that found on mid-sized ride-on mowers. This, along with Toro’s provision of a cavernous 88-litre grassbag, ensures the super-fast coverage of paddocks and expansive lawns.
The Toro 20978 TimeMaster comes driven by a 190cc Briggs & Stratton 875-Series electric-start engine that employs B & S’s overhead-valve technology for cooler, cleaner and more fuel-efficient operation; and which boasts a commercial-duty debris-management system for season after season of unfailing reliability.
A Lo-Tone muffler makes for a more pleasant working-environment; while ReadyStart® means there’s no need to prime the carburettor or apply choke prior to ignition.
Thanks to Toro’s AutoMatic Drive System (ADS), whereby the mower automatically matches your walking-speed, the 20977 TimeMaster is highly manoeuvrable and won’t run away from you when you’re mowing around trees, ornaments and other garden obstacles.
It has a blade-break clutch, so you won’t have to cut the engine when emptying the catcher, or when crossing gravel or hard surfaces; and it combines an aluminium frame with a hybrid-steel chassis so as to ensure superior durability.
A three-in-one machine offering mulching, side-discharge and bagging as standard, the Toro 20978 TimeMaster Twin Cut Lawn Mower can be set-up to suit whatever conditions you might be confronted with.
A hosepipe link on the cutter-deck means you can clean the underside of the mower without having to flip it over; while a Quick Stow handlebar makes it easy to prepare for transport or storage.
