Weighing in at 900kg including roll bar, it is 15-20 per cent lighter than comparable fairway models. Power comes from a 25hp (18.5kW) Kubota diesel engine, allowing it to climb hills even when running groomers and rear-roller brushes.
Ideal for links and heathland courses, the mower's grass-cutting ability is complemented by a 7mph (11kmph) mowing speed. A patented Series/Parallel three-wheel drive system provides power to at least two wheels at all times for traction to provide grip in hilly and wet conditions.
The 3550-D also benefits from improved ground-following performance provided by a new 46cm version of Toro's Dual Precision Adjustment cutting units. Optional 56cm rear cutting units can be installed to achieve additional overlap if required.
