Toro Launches New Multi Pro® 5800 Turf Sprayer
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (January 5, 2011) Toro's new Multi Pro® 5800 incorporates extensive customer input plus advanced sprayer technology and innovation to equal one impressive sprayer with performance that just can't be beat.
Virtually every aspect of the spray system has been engineered to deliver unsurpassed spray accuracy and precision. The new Pro Control XP console delivers instantaneous rate response to ensure the correct rate is applied from start to stop, pass after pass. The exclusive six-diaphragm pump is an industry first. This unique pump produces up to twice the volume to achieve the full spectrum of spray rates and simultaneous aggressive agitation for a homogeneous mixing of tank contents. We simplified the chemical loading process with the Cleanload Eductor™ which lets operators safely load the tank without first mixing a slurry. And we created an automated Fresh Water Rinse System for an on-the-fly triple rinse, saving hours of clean-up time.
Additional productivity and efficiency enhancing accessories are also available, like the new lightweight Drift Reduction Boom Shroud, which is easily attached to the standard boom, and the new Ultra Sonic Boom Leveling System, which automatically adjusts the booms to the correct spraying height in undulating turf conditions.
“The overall goal of this development project was to optimize the components at every level to ensure the highest performance, reliability and spraying precision,” said Tony Ferguson, senior marketing & business development manager for Multi Pro® sprayers. “We are confident that our customers will agree that the new Multi Pro® 5800 has it all and does it all.”
