I demoed a turf master, as near as I can tell the only difference between it and the homeowners model is the motor and the personal pace, which I don't know if I would like. Does anybody use the homeowners model?
I also checked online and it looks like I can replace the briggs for about $250?
What website was the replacement Briggs engine. I've got one turfmaster and two timemasters and would like to know.

I'll try to find it tonight, i didn't get the number off the motor, it was just a briggs 8.75 vertical.

Are your timemasters at all as good as your turf master?

No! But I still love them I bought the timemaster first and liked it so much I had to get the commercial version. I feel it has much more power bc of the extra torque from the kawi engine. In plan to use the commercial version for spring and fall and the timemasters from June through early OCt.

I think everyone who owns or wants to own a timemaster should read this thread. It caused such a disturbance that it actually got blocked by the moderator. But it's very interesting and funny !

Well, fact is that my local dealer wont give me more than a 1 year warranty anyways on a commercial ( if they give more than 6 months) so i was thinkin of getting the time master ( or two of them) and just selling them for 500- 600 in the spring as 1 season mowers.
I'm just thinking..........

Well.....I went there and they didn't even have a toro 30, i will try in a few weeks when they get all of their spring stuff out. I will probably put something on this thread about it if they even have one.

I don't see why they shut that one down. I thought the concept was interesting. We use the Honda commercial 21" for 2 years and then get rid of them.

+1

Forgot about calling yBravo will do that today.

Once the Exmark or Toro Commercial 30's can climb hills as well as my yBravo 25 and the engine that is on there is substantially..... okay "quite noticeably" more power than the Briggs Time Master.....only then will I go for the commercial version.

For doing low mows to wake up the grass....there is simply no substitute for more HP and OREGON G6 Gators on my BOP Quckie 32 dually.
