Toro Introduces New HoverPro™ Hover Mower Series
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (February 29, 2012) - Toro is adding a new hover mower series to its product lineup. Available in March 2012, Toro® HoverPro™ series mowers have a light footprint and are designed to mow in any direction - forward, backward or side-to-side. This flexibility makes them ideal for tackling tough areas, such as steep slopes, sharp undulations, areas near water and bunker lips.
“The new HoverPro hover mowers fill a need for golf courses, sports complexes and municipalities who have challenging turf terrain to maintain,” says Jeremy Opsahl, associate marketing manager at Toro. “The unique design makes the HoverPro excellent for mowing turf where you are not able to take a traditional mower.”
Three HoverPro models are available to fit a range of applications: the compact 16” HoverPro 400 for hard-to-reach slopes, the 18” HoverPro 450 for all-around versatility, and the powerful 21” HoverPro 550, which quickly covers larger areas faster. The HoverPro 400 has a nylon wire cutting system, while the HoverPro 450 and 550 utilize a metal-edge swing-tip blade.
All models include a powerful, durable Honda engine and can be fitted with a variety of optional accessories, including anti-vibration handlebars, detachable transport wheels, extension handles and a hi-rise kit.
