Toro TimeMaster 30 vs Exmark Commercial 30 vs Toro Commercial 30 vs yBravo 25

Yeah you're thinking oh NO! Not another thread on these mowers.

I own the yBravo 25 and last years Toro TimeMaster consumer model.

I'm hoping to demo both the Exmark and Toro COMMERCIAL versions in the following months to the ones I already own.

These are NOT front line mowers for me but mowers to replace 21's.

I will post pics of the Commercial blades vs last years TimeMaster blades in the next few days.

So that little bit of a lift makes that much of a difference when bagging, but it doesn't help when mulching, b/c of the gator spikes?

Side discharge and bagging yes. Mulch mode....? I'll be able to answer that in late April I hope.

Still early here. Low Spring mows only for me.

There has to be some operator who has used both the Toro TimeMaster 30 and the Exmark/ Toro TurfMaster....side by side.

I'm very interested in top speed comparisons? And the weight difference issue....?

TurfMaster blades are in fact an improvement over the lower lift TimeMaster blades. Same basic blade just a different bend.

I'm really looking for direct user feedback on those who have used the TimeMaster side-by-side with the Exmark or Toro TurfMaster....?

I hope to grab some under deck pics at the dealers this week and compare. Just the basics of deck shape etc.

Can't stow a TurfMaster 30 Exmark/Toro like this.



Mower in front of TimeMaster is a Q36 Dually fwiw.

No I'm not done with plywood sides yet....

Floor is Duraliner in Gray in case you're wondering.
