Toro promotes new generation of Groundsmaster mowers

A new-generation rotary mower, with cutting widths of almost 5m, is being promoted by its maker for the power of its turbo engines.

Toro 5900 and 5910 Groundsmasters boast cutting widths of 4.9m and new design, said the firm.

Both models have 99hp Cummins turbo diesel engines and mow at a rate of 5ha/h.

"That's 1ha in less than 15 minutes," said a representative.

"Operators can mow between objects or along narrower areas by raising the left- or right-wing decks as well as the front decks."

Cutting units can be set between 2.5cm and 15.2cm, and both machines have four-way adjustable seats with air-ride suspension and easy-to-use controls, said Toro.

The Groundsmaster 5910 has a climate-controlled cab with heating and air-conditioning, rollover protection and tempered glass offering 360 degrees of visibility.

"Toro has given the Groundsmaster 5900 series brains as well as brawn in the form of an "InfoCenter" diagnostics system to monitor the machine and flag up problems.

"Should a problem arise, audible and visible alarms alert the operator and then aid technicians in identifying the source and solution when the mower is back in the workshop."
