Re-designed Toro Timemaster with a bigger Briggs & Stratton engine and improved collection and cutting/recycling abilities.
The Toro 20978 Electric Start TimeMaster lawn mower is an excellent solution for people with big gardens and busy life styles. You can save time and energy due to its sleek, lightweight design and large (76cm) cutting width. It is estimated that you can save up to 40% of your mowing time (based on field test results) when using the TimeMaster 20978 instead of a traditional 53cm cutting width petrol mower. It is easy to store due to the quick stow handles.
The Toro 20978 ES uses a Briggs and Stratton 1000 series electric start engine and has a large 1.4 litre fuel tank capacity which can provide up to 1 hour of run time. The Briggs and Stratton overhead valve petrol engine is powerful and popular due to its reliability and durability. The 20978 has a hybrid steel deck and aluminium frame which provides strength and durability exactly where its needed.
The Toro automatic drive system offers a drive technology that matches your walking pace. When your speed increases the mower speed will also increase to match your pace. When your walking speed decreases the mowers will also decrease to match your speed. This provides you with a much more comfortable mowing experience. The mower weighs 65kg and it is extremely easy to manoeuvre around obstacles such as flower beds or shrubs.
The built in blade brake clutch is a clever feature that allows you to keep the lawnmower running while it is stationary. This allows you to move away from the mower to remove obstructions from your path or empty the grass bag without having to spend time starting it again. This is a great way to save time and increase productivity.
The Toro TimeMaster 20978 gives a superb quality cut with its 30 inch cutting width and a 31mm to 108mm cutting height that can be adjusted to two different positions. The large cutting width allows you to cover more ground in less time resulting in greater efficiency. The Toro 20978 is fitted with a large 88 litre grass collecting bag so less time emptying the bag and more time mowing.
