The Toro LT-F3000’s new cutting concept is intended to appeal to councils and landscape contractors looking for increased productivity, efficiency and economy.

Lely’s national sales manager Jeff Anguige explained: "Offering a completely new cutting concept to triple mowing, this machine gives users a chance to cut longer, wetter and coarser grass in one sweep."

He added: "You can make real savings by mowing less often, making it the perfect choice for those working to tight budgets and timeframes."

According to Lely, the mower also easily tackles challenging environments, whether wide open spaces or narrow verges, with good ground contour control.

The LT-F3000 is driven by a Kubota 33kW (44.2hp) 4-cylinder diesel engine. Anguige commented: "Its advanced blade design delivers unmatched cut quality in all types of grass, and in all types of weather."

He added: "The innovative three flail cutting system has been built to withstand the rigors of all heavy-duty applications. They’re much more durable than cylinders and even rotary systems. In fact, the intelligent blade design ensures that if an object is hit, the blades simply swing out of the way to avoid damage. They're also easy to sharpen and cost-effective to replace."

Lely also showed a selection of 'flagship' Toro machines at Saltex, including the heavy-duty Toro LT3340 triple, the Groundsmaster 360 zero-turn mower, the Groundsmaster 7210 rotary mower, the ProCore SR72 wide-area aerator and the best-selling T503 compact TYM tractor.
