Rubber Discharge Chute
High performance rubber discharge chute allows for close trimming without damaging chute or landscape structures. Patented design provides exceptional clipping dispersion.
Commercial Grade Contruction
The 7-gauge deck shell is further reinforced by a bull-nose front bumper, a 1/2" (1.3 cm) thick wear guard on the trim side, and a 3/8" (1 cm) thick reinforcement plate around the discharge opening.
Flat-Free Caster Tires
Semi-pneumatic flat-free caster tires decrease downtime by eliminating flats.
Rugged Carrier Frame
Rugged carrier frame; 2" x 2" x 12" (5.1 cm x 5.1 cm x 30.5 cm) tubular steel construction is the industry's largest and most durable.
Easy Height of Cut
Easy to change, vertical pin height of cut system provides cutting heights ranging from 1" (2.5 cm) to 4-1/2" (11.4 cm) in 1/4" (6 mm) increments
Independent, commercial-duty .6 cu. in. (10 cc) displacement pumps and wheel motors provide instant forward and reverse control without shifting.
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.
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.
Exclusive TURBO FORCE Deck
High-capacity TURBO FORCE decks deliver unsurpassed strength, a superior cut, and increased productivity in extreme mowing conditions. Equipped with a patented adjustable baffle, TURBO FORCE decks can be fine-tuned in order to conquer changing turf conditions
