Saltex is set to play host to the turf machinery market's most eagerly-awaited mower launch of recent years. Toro has announced that its brand new Greensmaster TriFlex 3400 and TriFlex Hybrid 3420 greensmowers will make their debut at the Windsor-based grounds management show this 6 to 8 September.
Built from the ground up to provide the precision cut of a pedestrian mower and packed with revolutionary features, these riding golf greensmowers are poised to cause quite a stir in the UK greenkeeping sector. The arrival of the hybrid - the first Toro mower to feature an all-electric cylinder drive system - is especially exciting. But don't be fooled - both the diesel and diesel-electric models deserve equal share in the spotlight, thanks to their myriad groundbreaking features and benefits!
Distributor Lely UK's Toro team will be demonstrating both TriFlex models for the first time at the show, with visitors invited to stop by stand W1b to check out the mowers' superior performance and revolutionary features. From tool-free, quick-change cutting units and a unique Flex double A-arm suspension system, to superb operator comfort and a hybrid option that virtually eliminates hydraulic leaks, Toro is confident its latest launch will live up to the hype! The hybrid model is also the first Toro machine to earn its new 'EnergySmart' seal of approval, thanks to its greener features.
Commenting on the launch, distributor Lely's Toro UK sales manager Jeff Anguige says: "Having worked closely with The Toro Company's research and development team to create a greensmower with the UK golf market in mind, we're prouder than ever to introduce these particular models. Of course greenkeepers are excited to see Toro's first hybrid machine, but the overall benefits of both mowers are just as impressive. I urge turf professionals to check out these benefits firsthand at Saltex."
TriFlex isn't the only launch keeping Lely's Toro team busy at the show. Saltex will also see the Workman MD range of mid-duty utility vehicles completed with the introduction of the eagerly-awaited MDX-D diesel version. With the MD Series renowned for its unsurpassed ride comfort, improved performance and the highest total payload capacity in its class, the MDX-D is sure to be a hit with turf professionals seeking a diesel alternative to an already proven and popular petrol machine.
The stand will showcase further recent additions to the Toro line-up, with the ProPass range of top-dressing attachments and material-handling equipment, together with the ProCore SR Series of deep-tine, tractor-mounted aerators, also expected to draw the crowds. And with popular classics from the established Toro range also on show, greenkeepers, groundsmen, landscape contractors and other turf professionals are sure to find something of interest on stand W1b.
What's more, for the first time, visitors will be able to see the entire range of Toro professional turf products on one stand - W1. It comes from distributors Lely and Hayter - responsible for Toro golf and fine turf products, and grounds equipment respectively - uniting in one, comprehensive Toro exhibit.
