I was wondering if I get rid of it I think I want the Toro Timemaster30. I want it because it has a blade clutch and keep the engine running. 2 my old crappy mower only is side dishcharge I want mulcher for grass side discharge for overgrown grass and the bagger for leaf cleanup.


My question is do I need one but I need it because I have my aunts lawn and an eldery lady's lawn. So should I get it? Tell me now!

The blade clutch is very useful all my 22" hondas have it and I love it.

The 30" timemaster doesnt seem like to bad a machine. Its not commercial grade but small mowers take a beating. You get a 30" cut for under a grand. You really cant complain about that. If you happen to expand and get bigger mowers. It will still have its purpose. Small enough to get through gates and light enough to pick up.

Ask your dad to bring it over to a dealer, and have him ask for a repair quote.

Got any pics?
no but I can get some for you

That is EXACTLY what I do. Everything I have the breaks I fix myself now, if I can fix it then GREAT if I can't fix it OR if I can replace it cheaper than the fix then I tear it down, put all the good parts on the parts shelf and toss the rest. It saved my butt earlier this year when I had a 40 year old tiller carb on the shelf after my chipper crapped out on me.

Carb problems? I am not a tech and I cant figure it out, scrap it, grab the old carb off the shelf, bolt it on and get back to work.
