Toro Premium Snowblower Engines Provide the Perfect Power Source
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (Sept. 4, 2012) - Some things are just meant to go together -- like Toro products and Toro premium engines. Pair the perfect power source with Toro's innovative snowblower features that help you get the job done quickly, and you have a machine you can count on.
"Because we understand our products better than anyone, we can create the best power source for them," explains Tanner Erickson, Toro marketing manager. Toro premium engines are built to meet the specific needs of the products they're powering. For Toro snowblowers, that means more power to move more snow. Heavy flywheels deliver more inertia under load, making it easier to plow through heavy, wet snow. Superior airflow and engine block design help the engine run cooler, which can extend the life of the engine. A low-tone muffler keeps noise levels "neighbor friendly," perfect for those early morning driveway-clearing sessions.
"We take quality control very seriously," adds Erickson. "Before each engine leaves the assembly line, it's tested under load and checked for power levels and governor response. That ensures it's ready to provide optimal performance the first time and every time you use it."
Before they're approved, Toro engines undergo multiple testing cycles in areas such :
- Startability testing - to ensure the engine starts with only a few pulls, even in -20 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Sound and vibration testing - to verify the engine runs smoothly and doesn't produce excess noise or vibration.
- Field and lab testing - to take engine durability to the next level. In the past few years, thousands of hours have been logged in snowblower engine testing. Those test results help Toro create engines that last. Rugged construction, including dual oversized crankshaft bearings, cast iron cylinder liners, and a triple piston ring design create snowblowers that will provide dependable performance season after season.
With more than 60 years of making high-performing, durable snowblowers, Toro knows how to tackle snow -- and Toro engines are more than ready.
