Toro's Multicycler is a green machine - that's red

Toro can't get away from their trademark red even when their new Mutlicycler range of push mowers is so - green.

The green mower is based on its revolutionary recycler technology that chops the grass blades into tiny particles and then returns it deep into the lawn, hidden from view. Now, this isn't the first mower that's mulched lawns with its own cuttings but it is the first mower that can achieve this without the unsightly two-day old brown clippings.

Toro claims that these cuttings are not seen and as they're fed back to the root source, they mulch the grass and decrease the lawns need for watering.

The Multicycler range, due out before Easter in the UK, has three models each sporting a not-so-green 190cc Briggs & Stratton petrol engine and a sturdy 48cm (19in) cutting deck. And while most operators will choose to use the recyler option it's good to know that you also have the ability to beg your clippings if you desire.

Selling for GBP399 including VAT for the base model, they're not the cheapest lawn mowing option. However, with the environmental benefits and the structural quality we've come to expect of Toro they're still a good deal.

Toro Groundsmaster 580-D - For serious lawn keepers

toro professional lawn mower
If you've got a parcel of land bigger than the suburban backyard and you want to mow it quickly then Toro's new Groundsmaster 580-D is worth considering.

Able to mow 14½ acres per hour with its three engaging decks and adjustable cutting widths from 8½ - 16 inches Toro's professional mower is useful for city councils, contractors, large schools and even greenskeepers.

The beauty of this machine lies in its maneuverability as it inches itself around corners and getting into places that many smaller mowers struggle with.

From the manufacturer's own website;

The remarkable agility of the Groundsmaster 580-D means you can trim less than an 18" circle around trees, around a 90 degree corner, or turn back 180 degrees with no uncut grass remaining.

One of the other benefits which stand the Groundsmaster out from its competition is its Breakaway Decks which will instantly swivel inwards if the operator misjudges any obstacle. These swiveling decks also make it possible to mow in confined areas with the same machine.

The plethora of attachment options will keep the boss perplexed in decision making mode for some time and include the ROPS Hard Cab or Canopy instead, Atomic Mulching Blades, Diagnostic Tools and a Rotary Broom to name a few.

As a professional piece of equipment don't expect much change from US$75,000 for one of these though.

Toro 20055 SR4 Super Recycler lawn mower

toro 20055 lawn mower super recyclerIf the John Deere aluminium push mowers were a little out of your price range, then you might find Toro's offerings a little easier to swallow.

Toro's SR4 Super recycler range consists of 6 models from the 20053 up to the big 20058 are well-priced aluminium decked mowers. If you were not after aluminium then the steel Recycler range would be a great place to start. These products from Toro have all had great reviews and the range has been around for a couple of years, these models superseding their older brothers.

The features that the 20055 have is incredible for its price and I think it stands out as a great lawn mower. Things like rear-wheel self-propulsion and the aluminium deck are what you would expect to get on mowers that are probably 50% more expensive than these and Toro has done a great job keeping the price down.
