Innovative mower now features unique Automatic Drive System
SPELLBROOK, England (February 2017) – Toro, a leading U.S. manufacturer of turf and landscape maintenance equipment that brought us the original SmartStow™ lawn mower – the first petrol mower that can be folded and stored vertically without the need to drain any oil or fuel – has now added a new model to this innovative space-saving range.
The new model utilises the innovative Briggs & Stratton® engine with Mow ‘n’ Stow technology, but also now features Toro’s unique Automatic Drive System, where the mower is self-propelled, so there is no need to push, but it automatically moves with you – continually adapting to your chosen walking speed, so you can work at your own pace.
This mower also comes with a Recycle-on-Demand feature that allows users to switch between collecting, cutting or recycling clippings at the pull of a lever. Recycling sees the grass repeatedly chopped into fine pieces and returned back into the turf as you mow, helping to achieve a lusher lawn by maintaining nutrients and moisture.
Additionally, the mower is now available with rear-wheel drive, offering greater control as you mow: beneficial for those with tougher terrain to manage or for use on a lawn with gentle slopes.
Julie Dommett, Marketing Manager for Toro, said: “The SmartStow mower is the ideal choice for people with large gardens, but less room for storage in their garage or shed. This new SmartStow has a large cutting width (55cm/22”) and offers owners the unique ability to store the mower vertically, saving up to 70% on storage footprint*. Now with additional features to offer greater traction and control, this mower is easier to use than ever before – saving you time and effort when mowing.
“With smooth manoeuvring, plus the durability, reliability and great quality of cut you can expect from a Toro, the new SmartStow will make light work of mowing medium to large gardens this spring.”
The new SmartStow™ (Model : 20961) comes with a two-year full coverage warranty.
The SmartStow™ RRP: £629 – Available from Authorised Toro Dealers across the UK.
