I ordered my TimeMaster in late April and even then it took longer than I figured for it to be delivered (~2 weeks). The guy that owned the dealership told me they were pretty popular, but I don't even see them on the shelves at the local Home Depot stores I've checked even though many Toro models are well represented.
At least I am not the only one. It's just my luck to pick something that I am excited about only to have to wait a little longer for it. LOL.
Our local Home Depot's here in NW Indiana do not even carry the TM in the store. Matter of fact, they only carry about 4 versions of the Recycler line. Local Ace Hardware's are "authorized dealers" and can special order one yet they don't have any on display.
BTW, thanks for the tips on the new TM. :thumbup:
I already make it a habit to give the lawnmower a good blowing after use and will definitely be cleaning the TM (especially under the cover) well in order to do some preventative maintenance.
I took advantage of the 0% interest/18 month promo they had running at the time of my purchase, so I added a set of blades to have on hand just in case.
