SPELLBROOK, England (January, 2018) TRADE RELEASE – Toro, a global leader in turf and landscape maintenance equipment, has announced the launch of the new 53cm heavy-duty Proline mower (model 22280). Available now, the new model has several enhanced features, including simplified controls and improved ergonomics for operator comfort.
The Toro Proline range is well known for its ability to withstand the demands of professional gardeners, landscapers and municipalities. The latest mower in the line focuses on durability and minimising hand-arm vibration and achieves a low hand-arm vibration of only 2.7m/s². This enables nearly 7 hours of continual use every day before exceeding the EAV.
The Proline 53cm features a 3-speed transmission system and Blade Brake Clutch (BBC) system, powered by a commercial-grade Kawasaki FJ180V KAI engine, in addition to a cast aluminium cutter deck that is designed to withstand the rigors of commercial mowing whilst minimizing overall weight. Model 22280 comes with a one-year commercial warranty.
Christopher Cooper, Product Marketing Manager from Toro, said: “The launch of the new Proline mower demonstrates the continued innovation we offer at Toro. The latest model aims to reduce hand-arm vibration, remaining compliant with health and safety regulations, and keeping it comfortable for the operator.
