    Are you sure the the timemaster doesn't go straight up? Their video on youtube appears to show the handle going up...

    The timemaster goes up but not the "TURFMASTER"(has a identical fixed handle like the pro-line models)

    My local Exmark/Toro dealer said they'd have them in a week.

    The fold up handle is a huge plus for the homeowner version. I have a 6x12 enclosed and space is at a Premium. The other issue is the added weight and lack of personal pace. Both my Toro TimeMaster 30 and Ybravo 25 are secondary use mowers.

    Thanks for input on a ramp shelf for a 21". Going to do that for my yBravo25.

    What are they running for over there? Here in Montreal Canada it's about $1850.00

    What type of drive system does the commercial version have?

    How does it engage, and speeds....?

    I beleive its belt driven, much like the 21" mowers, but I know it has a much larger transmission, I was able to look under one at the trade show. The speeds are the same as a self propelled, about 4km/hr or something along those lines, its actually very nimble for its size and will probably behave like a heavy duty 21" mower that may weight 120lb+, this model is 170 or so, its seems very nice, I just hope it cuts well, which I'm sure is what most people are concerned about.
