Toro believes everything is better in the yard! From family gatherings to kickball games, your yard is an extension of your home, and the folks at Toro want to help you make it the best it can be. Since producing their first mower for golf course fairways in 1921 and their first mower for residential use in 1939, they’ve become a leading worldwide provider of turf and landscape maintenance equipment, as well as irrigation solutions.
Based in Bloomington, MN, the nearly 100-year-old company’s consumer division produces dependable products that keep yard work simple. Toro’s feature-rich lawn mowers, zero turn mowers, snow blowers, leaf blower vacs, trimmers and water-saving irrigation equipment get the job done fast and provide beautiful results.
Here’s a look at Toro’s latest innovations to help make your yard care tasks easier and more productive.
Toro Lithium-ion 12-inch Trimmer
Putting the finishing touches on your yard is easier and more eco-friendly with Toro’s new cordless 12-inch trimmer. Thanks to new lightweight lithium-ion battery technology, there is plenty of power to take on thick grass and weeds without the hassles of gas and oil. The 24-volt max* battery provides up to twice the power per weight as compared to a traditional nickel-cadmium battery. This new cordless trimmer also features Toro’s innovative, 1-step walk-behind edging option. Just push a button and rotate the head to start edging. Feeding the trim line is even easier thanks to an auto-feed trim line system that automatically adjusts the line to the perfect cutting length.
Toro TimeCutter SS5000 Zero Turn Mower
Toro TimeCutter SS5000 owners get the job done faster– an average of 45-percent faster versus their previous mower. The key is Toro’s innovative Smart Speed feature. Smart Speed lets you choose the best ground speed range to fit your mowing needs. The Smart Speed adjustment lever allows you to reduce the ground speed range of the control arms from 0-7 mph to 0-3.5 mph, without reducing engine speed or blade speed, ensuring the highest quality of cut. Choose the “high mode” for maximum speed when mowing the flat, open spaces in your yard. The “low mode” allows for enhanced maneuverability when cutting in and around tight spaces. The result is a precise mowing experience, and more time on the weekends to do the things you want to do!
Toro TimeMaster 30-inch Mower
Master your lawn-mowing tasks — and your time — with the new Toro TimeMaster 30-inch wide area walk-behind mower. Designed with the look and feel of a typical walk-behind mower, the TimeMaster is packed with features that make it simple to use. With this first-of-its-kind mower, you can cut your lawn up to 40% faster** than if you’re using a typical 21-inch walk behind mower, leaving you more time for the important things in life. The TimeMaster’s extra-wide, yet lightweight, 30-inch cutting deck features a twin-blade cutting system to give you professional-looking results. The innovative Personal Pace automatic drive system does the work for you, adapting to your mowing speed. When you’re done mowing, simply press down on the quick-stow lever for easy storage.
