Burger and Heath Paynter opened the bowling after the interval and it was Paynter who made the intitial breakthrough removing opener Simpson for 22 before Toor and Robbie Crocker took over.
Crocker was the star man with the ball claiming 5-51 including Farnham's top scorer Warren Miller (53).
Toor made up for missing out with the bat to pick up four wickets, as the visitors were all out for 192, giving Radlett a 128-run win.
The win means Radlett move up in to fourth place as the season passes the half-way mark.
The result is also a timely boost for the club as they welcome league-leaders Henley to Cobden Hill this weekend in what looks set to be a mouth-watering contest.
l A superb 68no from opener Andre Sharma helped Radlett II to a five wicket win over Bishop's Stortford II.
The home side batted first but were pegged back by some good bowling from Radlett, with Johnson Mafa finishing with 3-43.
John Barr chipped in with 2-38 and Stuart Browne taking 1-38.
Amazingly there were three run-outs at the end of the Stortford innings as they finished on 159-9.
Radlett lost Nick Fielden (14), David Robinson (23) and Barr (1) before James Lewis steadied the ship with 28.
When Lewis fell, Lee Fortis took over adding 14 before he was run out. Thankfully for Radlett Sharma was still plugging away at the other end and he and Ian Edwards (2) saw the Cobden Hill outfit home.
