The uncertainties due to limited knowledge of the multi-hadron final state on the measurements of the top mass at future linear colliders are discussed. This study is performed for $e^+e^-\to t\bar{t}$ annihilation events at the center-of-mass energy of s1/2=500 GeV using Monte Carlo models tuned to LEP experiments. The uncertainties are determined for the all-hadronic top-decay mode as well as for the lepton-plus-jets channel.
