Have a toro 20074 electric start, charged the battery for a full day, started right away, cutting the lawn, stopped for a break, went to turn the key and nothing, I mean nothing, had to use the pull cord, checked to make sure the wiring was connected, no problem there, could that battery just die while your cutting the lawn?

If the motor isn't charging the battery as you work then it will gradually discharge while the engine is running. A faulty battery will also not hold a charge. Make sure the charging circuit is OK and get the battery tested at your local dealer.

My 4 year old Toro Timecutter is hard to start & keeps cutting off

The battery and charging system only start the engine. They have no affect on the engines running. The engine runs off magneto ignition which requires no outside power source. Check your battery for full charge with a volt meter. !2.6 volts is 100%. If the engine is hard cranking with a battery at full charge it could be valve timing, valve clearance, or the compression release not operating properly.
One other possibility would be the carb flooding an filling the cylinder and crankcase with fuel but you would have noticed smoking after you got it started had the cylinder been full of fuel.
I would start diagnoses by checking the valve clearance and check the flywheel key.

I have a Toro 16.5 riding lawnmower it stop and wouldn,t start back what could be my problem?

Battery charged? Bad fuel? Low on oil? 30w oil required. Clean carb. Check for improper ground on starting circuit. Ignition switch providing power to starter when key turned? Always use Stabile in gas. Remove bowl from carb ensure float is working properly. Float up no fuel flow, float down fuel flow. Ensure oil is full, low oil shutoff will not allow starting.

Toro ride on wont start

Battery required? Charge battery or replace. Replace air filter and spark plug. Dump out old oil and replace with 30w oil. Electric start may have a fuse blown. Dump out old gas fill with new with Stabile always added to gas. Try spraying starter spray in carb at air cleaner with filter removed. All mowers have a low oil sensor to prevent starting on low oil. Remove bowl from carb, should be full of gas. Pinch off fuel line with pliers or turn fuel valve off. Check float should be hanging down allowing fuel flow. Float up stops fuel flow.
