Toro Turfmaster Twin Deck Pro

We've a varied fleet of mowers from smaller to large rollers and ditto 4 wheelers and a Husqy mulcher.

I'm re-freshing / adding at the moment and I'm seriously thinking of getting a Toro Turfmaster 22205TE twin deck 76cm.

It has a large cutting area, mulching capability and is the pro version, so has robust simplified controls.

We've had it's baby brother for 3 years, the 53cm 22293 pro hi vac bagger and it's been great with solid performance and no problems.

Both have the lovely Kawasaki engine with 3.8L tank, so run forever without filling up.

 

So does anyone have any experience of the Turfmaster, especially over the non pro 76cm Timemaster.

    I have used 2 of them and the guy I sub for has ordered another one, good mulch but the under deck needs regular cleaning the side discharge is good but as a bagger they are pants in my opinion. Good speed but only one speed and on colder days you have to let them run a while before engaging the blades as they just stall the engine. Used every day and had no issues with them so far. Very heavy but wheels on full  hight you can just tip it back put the front end in the van and the just lift the back in. Built like a tank hence the weigh, having not used a timemaster I can't' compare them.

  • I seem to remember a thread on here about them a couple of years ago.

    From what I've seen on youtube, the guys in the US have had issues with the drive on them, but I understand this has been solved by Toro in later models.

  • I had the turfmaster and sold it within a year. Also bad reviews on YouTube. It’s underpowered. 5hp Kawasaki. It’s not great at bagging or mulching. It has gator blades and it needs power to mulch well. I got the timemaster last year and absolutely love it. It’s lighter and more agile to turn etc. Bags in all conditions and mulches when needed very well. It also has the Briggs 1000 series 223cc Briggs which I saw online works out at 10hp. It’s a beast and in my opinion better than the turfmaster. I haven’t seen any updates to the turfmaster which Toro needs to think about.
