The Toro Z Master Professional 5000 series has two new models with rear discharge decks.

The rear discharge mowers are available in 60-inch and 72-inch cutting widths and feature Toro’s Turbo Force cutting deck with seven-gauge steel, cast iron spindle housing and steel blades.

The decks are designed with two blades rotating clockwise and one blade rotating counter-clockwise to spread clippings evenly through the rear discharge port.

The mowers are available with 25 horsepower and 26.5 horsepower Kohler Command Pro EFI propane engines.

The Kohler Command Pro EFI propane engines are the latest update from Toro for the mowers.

The mowers feature closed-loop EFI technology that helps fuel efficiency. The update can reduce fuel costs by up to 25 percent.

Toro has also introduced new Horizon technology on select Z Master Professional 6000 EFI models.

The technology is a platform to help performance in mowing conditions and increase fuel efficiency.

The control console incorporates Horizon technology that allows the operator to select from three different performance modes based on mowing conditions.

In “max mode” the operator has maximum power and performance for the most demanding conditions.

An “economy mode” increases fuel efficiency in normal mowing conditions, while reducing the unit’s overall emissions, noise and machine wear.

When cutting in wet conditions, the “low mode” helps reduce deck packing.

The Horizon platform also track engine temperature and oil pressure.
