Twin Lever Controls-MD

Twin Lever steering controls reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity. The straight-forward control logic is easy for new operators to learn and master. Steers like a “z” mower. Great for tracking in large open spaces and also maneuvering around obstacles. All around an intuitive control system.

Exclusive TURBO FORCE Deck - Floating Deck

High-capacity 7/10 guage TURBO FORCE deck delivers unsurpassed strength, a superior cut, and increased productivity in extreme mowing conditions. Easily handles the most demanding conditions and resists damage from impacts and abrasion.

Patented Adjustable Baffle

Allows operator to achieve maximum cutting performance by fine-tuning deck to conquer changing conditions, unique job sites or different times of the season. In extreme conditions, the baffle can be opened in order to conserve power and achieve faster mowing speeds. In less demanding conditions, the baffle can be closed to yield micro-sized particles and maximize discharge velocity.

Rubber Discharge Chute

High performance rubber discharge chute allows for close trimming without damaging chute or landscape structures. Patented design provides exceptional clipping dispersion.

Flat-free Caster Tires

Semi-pneumatic flat-free caster tires decrease downtime by eliminating flats.

Premium Hydraulics

Independent, commercial-duty .6 cu. in. (10 cc) displacement pumps and wheel motors provide instant forward and reverse control without shifting.

The Industry's Toughest Spindle Assembly

Toro's rugged spindle assemblies survive impacts that would destroy lesser spindles. The cast iron housing, with a massive 9-3/8" (23.8 cm) diameter base, absorbs impact loads and distributes them across a broader area of the robust deck shell.
