Toro 30 in Lawn Mower Review – TimeMaster Personal Pace
The time has come to replace your old lawnmower with a new one. But before you do, you need to make sure it will work properly and that it’s going to last as long as possible. That’s why we’ve decided to test out the latest model from Toro, which is called the Torque 30.
It features a new design and improved components than its predecessor, the Toro 20.
In addition to the new engine, the Torque 30 includes a number of other improvements over its predecessor. These include:
A new drive system with a belt-driven gearbox (instead of a chain) that provides better power transfer between the front and rear wheels; A new hydraulic pump that increases fuel efficiency; An improved air compressor to improve airflow under high pressure; Improved blade guard and tailgate protection; And much more!
But what if I told you that these changes aren’t enough? What if there was another improvement that would make your life easier?
Well, you’re in luck because Toro has just added a feature that will greatly increase the lifespan of your new Toro 30. This feature is known as the “Time Master.”
What Is A Time Master?
A time master is basically a computerized timer or alarm clock. It gives you a reminder to do certain things or change out certain parts on your lawn mower. For example, the time master will remind you to change out your spark plugs after 150 hours of operation. This saves you the hassle of having to remember when they were installed and if it’s time to replace them.
How Does It Even Work?
The time master isn’t actually attached to the mower. Instead, it comes with a small device that you have to mount on the dashboard of your lawn mower’s cab (if you even have a cab). The device connects to the computer in the mower and is powered by a standard household outlet.
Once it’s installed, all you have to do is set the time master to the correct time and date and it will record this information. It will then take this information and compare it to the time that the mower’s computer logs the hours of operation. When the two times are equal, this means it’s time to change out a certain part or perform an action.
For example, let’s say your mower runs for 50 hours per week, 5 days a week. This means after 4 weeks you will have reached 200 hours of operation. At this point, the Time Master will sound an alarm and let you know it’s time to change your spark plugs.
If you remember from above, the Time Master knows when to remind you based on the number of hours the mower has been used multiplied by 4 (number of weeks in a month).
Does It Really Work?
Yes. The Time Master was specially designed by the engineers at Toro after many months of testing and research. It has been rigorously tested and more than proven to be extremely reliable under any condition.
The Toro 30 already comes with a 5-year warranty but it’s not just the engine that can break down. You have many other parts on your mower that can wear out such as the drive belt, spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter and much more. The Time Master helps you avoid these situations by automatically logging these information and comparing them to how long your mower has been used.
You may be asking yourself, how does this help me? You may also be asking yourself, who’s going to set this up for me?
Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything! The Time Master comes with a setup DVD that will guide you through the installation process step by step. It will also come with an extra wire harness that connects to your mower and the Time Master. All that has to be done is plugging them together and you’re ready to go!
What If It Fails?
The Time Master was designed by the same people that made your lawn mower. This means it is built with the same high quality standards and comes with a 5-year warranty. If anything goes wrong with it, all you have to do is contact your local Toro dealer. They will then send the device in and have it repaired or replaced.
Of course, you don’t have to worry about any of this. The Time Master has more than proven itself to be extremely reliable. You should also remember that your lawn mower has a 5-year warranty against engine failure.
Even if the engine does fail, all you have to do is take it in for repairs and Toro will fix it for free!
Should I Get It?
The Time Master isn’t cheap.
