Innovative space saving mower now has Automatic Drive System and Recycle on Demand
SPELLBROOK, England (February 2017) – Innovative space saving mower now has Automatic Drive System and Recycle on Demand.
Toro, a global leader in turf and landscape maintenance equipment, has announced the release of a new model of the innovative SmartStow™ mower - the first petrol mower that can be folded and stored vertically without having to drain the fuel and oil.
The new SmartStow™ (model 20961) now has rear-wheel drive, an Automatic Drive System and Recycle on Demand as standard. The unique Automatic Drive System automatically matches the mower’s speed to the user’s walking pace, while a Traction Assist handle enables improved control on difficult terrain. Traction is further enhanced with the introduction of rear-wheel drive.
The Recycle-on-Demand feature allows the user to switch between collecting, cutting or recycling clippings at the pull of a lever. Recycling sees the grass repeatedly chopped into fine pieces and forced back into the turf, helping achieve a lusher lawn as it maintains nutrients and moisture in the soil.
These new features just add to the unique ability of the SmartStow™ to store vertically with no petrol or oil spills, reducing the mower’s storage footprint by 70 percent*. Available from February 2017, the SmartStow™ has a wide 55cm/22” steel cutting deck to get the job done quickly, and is a great choice for customers with medium to large gardens but for whom storage space is a challenge.
Julie Dommett, Marketing Manager for Toro, commented: “This new SmartStow™ continues to provide the unique ability to store the mower vertically, but with the new features on the 20961 model adding to the already proven durability, reliability and cut of the mower.
“These new developments highlight the ongoing innovation Toro strives to maintain across all its products and ranges. With more than 1,500 patents related to turf maintenance, innovation is at the heart of everything we do, and we are delighted to offer this new product to the market.”
The SmartStow™ 20961 model comes with a 2 year full coverage warranty and has an RRP of £629.
