Last week at Equip Expo 2023, Toro unveiled its latest outdoor power equipment, including the new GrandStand HDM, Z Master 4000, and battery-powered TurfMaster Revolution. Additional Horizon360 features were also introduced.
New Z Master 4000 HDX with MyRIDE
Extra large and ready to charge through the toughest and biggest jobs — the latest edition in Toro’s Z Master 4000 series offers the widest, heavy-duty deck yet, power from a 35 hp Kawasaki FX1000, and the added comfort of our patented MyRIDE suspension system.
The TURBO FORCE deck made of 7-gauge steel ensures perfect one-pass cutting and enhances the after-cut appearance through dual capture anti-scalp rollers, a rubber discharge chute and a rugged I-beam front end. Rolling on massive 26" Voodoo Trac tires provides aggressive tread to conquer any terrain and give the operator a higher vantage point to always know what’s coming. The HDX can effortlessly handle triple bagger and dump-from-seat bagger attachments to streamline operations.
In addition to power, comfort takes a front seat with the addition of the patented MyRIDE suspension system. An added bonus: holders for a drink or phone keep them always within arm’s reach, and onboard USB ports keep the phone charged while mowing.
New TurfMaster Revolution
Every component of the all-new TurfMaster Revolution is made for heavy use in rough conditions, just like its predecessor, but without the need to refuel. This machine is built to be tough and reliable while maximizing efficiency on the job. The TurfMaster Revolution has a 30" deck to help tackle more ground in fewer passes, while still offering the simplified and easy-to-learn operation of a walk-behind mower. Its 3-in-1 design allows operators to quickly switch between mulching, bagging or side discharge.
Three 60V Flex-Force batteries keep this walk-behind working for up to 80 minutes of continuous runtime, and it can cut up to an acre per charge. Those same batteries can be used in any of Toro’s Flex-Force handheld tools, snow removal or walk-behind mowers, maximizing convenience and utility. Each Flex-Force battery is designed to run cooler, enabling all-day use without overheating. Recharging the largest capacity batteries takes just 40 minutes.
Embracing electric power, the TurfMaster Revolution boasts significant noise reduction. With zero engine exhaust emissions, contractors can confidently work in any environment while lowering their carbon footprint. Moreover, minimal maintenance is required as there is no need for oil and filter changes. With quiet operation and reduced maintenance, operators will experience increased uptime and extended operating hours.
New GrandStand HDM (Heavy-Duty Mini)
The new GrandStand Heavy-Duty Mini is smaller and more agile with a compact deck design.Toro
Toro heard the overwhelming demand for a smaller and more agile professional stand-on mower and responded with their new GrandStand HDM . The Grandstand HDM comes in new 32" and 36" deck options that can navigate tight spaces and fit through gated areas, making it an ideal choice for various applications. The compact deck design also saves trailer space.
Following the field-tested GrandStand design, the GrandStand HDM comes with a TURBO FORCE deck while a convenient flip-up utility hood provides easy access for maintenance. The single-belt drive system and sealed caster forks/wheels further minimize parts and servicing requirements, streamlining maintenance and reducing downtime.
