Designed to save you time, this 76 cm cut lawn mower makes keeping your garden in check, simple.

Benefiting from an impressive Briggs & Stratton engine and Toro's intelligent Automatic Drive System, the 20978 is a real pleasure to operate.

Enjoy superb cutting performance

Thanks to its wider cutting path and enhanced speed of this TimeMaster lawn mower, you can expect to save up to 40 percent cutting time compared to a standard 21 inch Toro mower. With its 1000 Series Briggs & Stratton 223cc petrol engine and 76 cm cutting width, the 20978 is ideal for extra large lawn areas. You can adjust the cutting height between 32 and 108 mm with two levers.

Versatile cutting to suit you

This model features three-in-one cutting options, allowing you to cut, mulch and collect depending on your requirements, the length of the grass and the time of year. Thanks to Toro's Dual-Force cutting system, the clippings are able to be chopped repeatedly into tiny pieces before being returned to the lawn where they decompose and act as a natural fertiliser.

You can also collect the clippings into the 88 litre catcher, or simply discharge them to the side (for example if the grass is particularly long).

A wonderful machine to work with

With Toro's Automatic Drive System (with Traction Assist), the 20978 automatically adjusts its pace to match your walking speed. Thanks to improved traction, it even helps you maintain a constant speed when working on more challenging terrain. Another benefit is the Blade Brake Clutch system, where the cutter blade is stopped but the engine kept running, ideal for travelling over non-grassed areas and emptying the grass bag.

This machine also has an electric start, making getting up and running even easier. The handlebar is height adjustable, a quick storage lever means you can easily store the mower vertically, and a wash-out port lets you connect a hose to simply clean beneath the deck.

Comes with a 3 year conditional warranty.
