Rated 5 out of 5??by Roboto42 you get what you pay for
Definitely seems like a quality product after a month of running this machine (26 yards a week appx). This is perfect for my midsize yards, and we use it on small yards that we can fit it in and bang out in 10-15 mins since we are short on time as this is a second job. No problems yet, though I hear the transmissions lose power and such. I'll definitely be keeping a good eye on maintenance. Starts on the first pull almost every time, plenty of power, bags dry grass perfectly, go slower on thick/wet grass. This thing pulls me up hills like crazy now, but I'm sure there will be a loss of power. One con: weight! this thing is so massive, I guess it's unavoidable with the 2 blades and quality engine on it... hopefully this doesn't to the wheels in too quick, but it sure can be tiring. I'd say it's worth the hassle hauling around though, cuts more and at higher quality than most walk behinds and with a smaller footprint.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Elawns NICE MOWER
The Toro Turf Master is a nice mower compared to using a 21??? mower. It takes a little getting used to due the size and weight of the machine. One person can???t put this mower in the back of a pick-up by themselves. The cut is nice and the time from beginning to end is reduced. If not set correctly, the drive transmission is difficult to move on a slight slope. But overall this is a very nice mower.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Eirikur Good commercial product
I have been using the turfmaster for a week now and I am very happy with this machine. I have not encountered any problems going up hills as other reviewers have stated. Machine does tend to slide mowing hills sideways. The engine runs smoothly and very happy with speed of cut. The wheel height is very easy to adjust and especially happy with this feature. I am 6'5" so was also very happy to discover the handle bar is adjustable!

Rated 1 out of 5??by chuck25 very dissapointed
In 15 months of owning this mower, the transmission has had to be replaced three times. The blade brake bracket has frozen twice on the bushing causing the blade brake and the pulley it stops and the belt to be damaged and replaced. I've had to replace the rear tire assembly at just over a year at $60.00 each. The rear axles bend very easily, causing uneven wear on the tires and the gears. The front tires now need replaced. Why would such a heavy mower have hollow tires that split and have to be replaced before you can use the machine again?? The motor has come loose from the deck. The drive cable has broken. The oil filter housing came loose from the motor and had to be replaced. The catcher is not strong enough for the added weight of the extra grass and didn't last a year. I would think long and hard before buying another Toro. I like the concept of this mower, but I think Toro rushed it into production, without adequate testing.

Rated 1 out of 5??by Rolando DO NOT PURCHASE THIS MOWER
I got this mower for my business and have so many different issues (engine smoke, no power on hill side areas, bad bagging). The transmission stop working and was replaced and cover by toro after one years of use . They give me 90 days on transmission warranty and right after 105 days is broken aging.
Really bad mower for a commercial grade.

Rated 3 out of 5??by MemphisLandscaper transmission problems
I liked this mower a lot for the first 14 months of ownership. Like all Toros, grass frequently got stuck in the shoot. It also has trouble climbing. But, being able to lift it in and out of my truck for the commercial jobs I do, rather than using a trailer, has been great. However, the blades quit engaging and I have now learned that the clutch in the transmission has burnt up. Colonial Hardware in Memphis says it will cost me $362. $362 to fix a 14 month old mower that was not misused is really frustrating. The warranty on that part of the mower is only one year. Engine warranty is 3 years but the transmission is not included in that. I found many other people are complaining about problems with these transmissions. I liked the mower until this happened. I just think Toro created it with a design flaw and should correct the problem at their expense rather than mine. A burnt up transmission at 14 months with no misuse is ridiculous.
