    That's heavy for such a small tire, I can see Rutting a big problem as I have that problem now with my Commercial Honda mower that weighs 80 lbs less, does anyone make a small pneumatic tire I wonder that might help with this?

    When the exmark 30" comes out will there be a difference between that and the turfmaster or is the "commercial timemaster"...the turfmaster the same as the exmark just with a different name on it?

    If I had 2 grand, I would buy one instead of a new snapper 21.

    Please talk with your Toro or Exmark dealer for additional information. The Toro model started shipping to dealers this month.

    I used a demo unit. I like the size but found it to be too heavy. Rear tires spin when trying to cut low turf. Machine appears to bottom out creating wheel spin. If you have bigger areas it will work but for me its not going to work. :cry:

    Picked up the 30" Turfmaster today. Used it to bag off dormant bermuda all day. I love this mower. Handles like a small 21" but works more like a 32" wb as far as speed.

    Im sure I'll discover some cons on this machine, but I think its one great machine. Good job Toro.

    Hey - my guys used to bellyache about pushing the small fenced back yards.. picked up a turfmaster this past spring.. they still bellyache but they smile more. I kind of wish for more power in the tall wet grass but otherwise I love the thing. props yall.

    What are you commercial guys experience with the bail being raised from the bottom as opposed to pushed down from the top, allowing the weight of your hand to hold it down?

    I have had no issues with that. Similar to the 21's Toro puts out. Half way into the season and I am still a fan of these mowers.
