Hayter Limited, UK manufacturer and distributor of Toro Grounds products are this year working alongside Lely (UK) - distributors of Toro Golf & Fine Turf products, to promote the broad range of Toro equipment that is available today.
The Toro products available through Hayter Limited offer turf-care solutions across all sectors of the professional groundscare and sports turf industry. The Grounds-product presence at Saltex showcases examples of every part of the product range. This includes walk-behind, ride-ons, and trailed mowers, zero turns, mid-size walk-behinds, Grandstands, hovers and scarifiers. Additionally, taking centre stage, an important new ride-on mower will be unveiled for the first time anywhere.
The Groundsmaster® 360 will also be shown at Saltex for the first time. This represents an entirely new category of mower. It combines the best control features of the traditional out front rotary mowers with the productivity and agility of a zero turn radius mower. The result is unprecedented manoeuvrability coupled with a 20% improvement in productivity compared with out front rotaries.
The Groundsmaster 360 performs as a multi-purpose utility vehicle for clearing snow, debris, etc. This means the mower works for 12 months in a year instead of six - another boost for productivity. The new mower features the Quad-SteerTM four-wheel steering system which, with the control provided by a steering wheel, minimises turf damage in even the tightest turns. The mower is available in either two-wheel or four-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive with a factory-installed cab.
The highly productive 183cm (72") cutting deck, proven on the Groundsmaster 7200 Series, is available in either side-discharge, rear-discharge or recycler configuration.
Among the many other mowers on display will be the CT Series of compact triples, shown here for the first time since their official launch in April 2010. Taken as a whole, the exhibit will demonstrate that there is a Toro solution ideally tailor-made to every grass cutting requirement, fully supported by a wealth of experience and expertise.
