    I have around 1/4 acre of grass in my yard and I am trying to decide what mower I need. I like the $1k mark and so that limits my options to the Toro TimeMaster or a basic 42" rider. Which would be better for me?

    For under $1000, the Timemaster would give you the best cut.

    More information would be useful for a meaningful response. What kind of grass? Terrain -- flat, steep slopes? Need to bag? Mulch? Discharge? Qualify of turf -- scrappy, thin, or heavy, dense, heavy Spring growth? How often to mow?

    Since you are a homeowner, time may be critical, or not? Are you looking for a quick pass, mow and park, be done, or meticulous, wanting to spend lots of time on keeping the yard perfect (e.g. hobby)?
