    I've had 2 now and I am about to set both of them on fire. 1st one motor work after only a year and the 2nd one now is having serious issues and it is only at the 1 year mark as well. It will mow for a while and then the motor just slows way down and the blades hardly spin and then for no reason at all the motor wraps back up and mows again. ( frustrating ad hell)! The governor Spring in the front seems to always need adjusted as well. I know everyone is sick of talking about these but I think it's time I just call them junk!

    i'm decided. I'm not going this route. Too many issues that i've been reading about. I'm gradually down sizing and tightening my service radius. I'll be looking for a great 21/22" or something around 30 inches. No timemaster for me.

    When they are running well, I do have to admit they are quick and easy to use machines and the cut quality isn't bad. I'm just tired of having them worked on.

    I have 2 timemasters and 1 turf master We use them commercially with no issues except tranny adjustments. That's it. The tires on the timemaster are wearing out now. 2 seasons on the one

    If we could put the Kawi engine on I think we would have a machine then!

    The maneuverability and cut quality is almost worth the headaches that come with them.

    I love my Turf Master and like acres of green and sjessen said it's easy to maneuver.
