New Toro® TurfMaster® Delivers Upgrades to Ergonomics and Durability
By Drew Tyson, January 1, 2016
Commercial mowing operations now have a new way to enhance their productivity with Toro’s latest TurfMaster® 30″ commercial walk-behind mower. The new model features significant upgrades for ease of use and long-term reliability.
One key upgrade is the ergonomic two-bail control system. With one bail controlling the brake and the other controlling the drive, less force is required to engage the bails, helping reduce hand fatigue for increased operator comfort. In addition, the blade brake clutch saves time by letting the operator stop the blades without having to shut down the engine.
Toro’s new TurfMaster also features hard-wearing wheels constructed of a tough, commercial-grade co-polymer and precision ball bearings for improved reliability. Other enhancements include stronger axles and transmission upgrades for longer life and consistent performance.
Beyond the new features, the new TurfMaster model offers the productivity advantage of a wide 30″ deck to get the job done fast, while delivering an excellent quality of cut.
“The TurfMaster is an ideal step up from a traditional 21-inch mower for contractors who want to get more done by covering more ground in less time,” says Wade Tollison, senior marketing manager at The Toro Company. “It’s a unique mower, and with these new enhancements to durability, control and comfort, there’s truly nothing else like it.”
With the TurfMaster’s versatile three-in-one, heavy-duty 13-gauge steel deck and cast aluminum frame, operators can mulch, bag or side discharge to tackle the toughest mowing conditions. Plus, the two-point height of cut design makes it easy to adjust the deck height without walking around the mower to adjust four different levers.
The simplified controls and large wheels make this mower easy to handle, even on hills and in tight spots. It’s also equipped with a powerful commercial-grade Kawasaki engine and a large one-gallon fuel tank to maximize mowing time before stopping to refuel.
The Toro TurfMaster 30″ mower comes with a one-year limited commercial-use warranty and a three-year limited commercial-use engine warranty.
