The Lawn Master II is a feature rich, value-priced landscape timer that is easy to use. Three independent watering programs, with up to three start times per program, provide a flexible way to manage your landscape's watering needs.

But there are two fatal flaws in the user guide. When I first mounted the timer, and used the included template to drill the mounting holes, I soon discovered that the template does not match up to the actual timer mounting holes. The screw spacing on the template is supposed to be 5", but it actually measures 1/8" under that. Now I have a wall repair thanks to relying on their incorrect template. Beware!
The second, and possibly much worse error, is their "instruction" for running the timer in manual mode. Repeatedly they state to turn the dial SLOWLY from the manual position to the run position. This point is even emphasized in the troubleshooting section where it specifically states that if the timer is not activating in manual mode, the problem may be that the dial is being turned too fast from one position to the other. My timer would not turn on in manual mode.Read more ›
As mentioned in another review, do NOT use the screw template; it is wrong. Measure 5 inches instead. Also, I would recommend hooking up the unit FIRST to the sprinklers THEN adding the battery and AC power. Seems like you are asking for an RMA if you power up first.
Negatives: Does not allow you to add a pause between zones. This might be necessary if you water from a cistern. The rubbery buttons do not have sufficient debounce, but considering how rarely you need the buttons, this is no big deal. The feature which allows you to seasonally shorten or lengthen the cycles uses integer arithmetic: If you combine a low percentage with a short watering time, the result may be NO watering time at all. The manual modes are not very intuitive; you will have to consult with the booklet.
Positives: the case is nice-looking and sturdy. The display is clear and obvious in its operation. Terminals, though tiny, securely clamp your wires. I like the big function knob that most controllers have adopted. The Toro also will run a master pump relay or a master valve in addition to the six sprinklers.
A note on "programs." It was not explained in the manual and it took me a while to figure out what this might be used for. An example: Let's say you want to water your lawn in the morning and water your hanging plants once in the morning and again in the afternoon. You would use program A to water all zones in the morning and use Program B to water only the hanging plant zones in the afternoon.
If you're wondering too, see the sample watering plan in this pdf
Each program SHOULD control a different set of solenoid valves.
If you water with all your stations on the same days, just configure Program A, and keep BC set to 0 minutes, or no watering days.
If you screw up like I did, and make programs ABC all the same, it will run "consecutively" and you will have a big water bill. If you notice it running when you don't expect, you may have inadvertently programmed more than just a program A.
Pros...good programming abilities and fairly easy to follow instructions (I did not have the manual run problem some others stated...oh well) Attractive case (compared to my Hydrorain box anyway)
Cons...The soft touch buttons are black and it's nearly impossible to read the symbols. To make matters worse the buttons for + and - counterintuitive. You'd think that the button shaped like an arrow pointing up would be + but noooo it's - . DUH! Also I can't believe noone else mentioned the small lettering and no backlight on the screen. The screen on the box looks bright and easy to see, but it's not. My old box had the display like a microwave that I could read in total darkness. This one is hard for me to read unless I'm staring straight at it in good light with my glasses on. So TORO are you reading this... how about a backlight for us fifty somethings. I won't take off a full star because of my less than perfect eyesight, but maybe a half.
