Toro® Recycler® Mowers Make Lawn Mowing More Efficient
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (Spring 2011) - Even if you love mowing your lawn, chances are you don't want to spend all day doing it. When you want to get the job done quickly, Toro's line of 22-inch Recycler® mowers offer the features and performance to give you a great looking lawn with a lot less effort.
With the Recycler lineup, you'll spend less time emptying the bag. That's because Toro engineers improved the way grass clippings flow into the bag, sending them higher and farther toward the back. The result is a 25% better bag fill, which means less stopping and emptying. The new Bag on Demand feature is also a big time saver, making it a snap to switch from bagging to mulching with just the touch of a lever. When it comes to mulching, Toro Recyclers excel at making grass clippings virtually disappear into the lawn, saving valuable time and providing vital nutrients that help fertilize the turf.
Toro's 22-inch Recycler models have professional features that fit every budget, including a “Quick Wash” washout port, recessed front wheels to reduce the need for trimming after mowing, and a wide cutting width. Each Recycler is powered by a Briggs & Stratton Ready Start™ engine that doesn't require choking or priming - just start the mower and go.
Highlights of the lineup include the variable speed High-Wheel Recycler (20331), with 11-inch wheels for dealing with uneven ground, and the Recycler (20332), which includes Toro's innovative Personal Pace® self propel system. Simply place your hands on the handle, and Personal Pace adapts to your mowing speed. Recycler (20333) offers Toro's Spin Stop™ blade stop system, which allows you to stop the blade without shutting off the engine. This feature makes it more efficent to remove obstactles from your mowing path by eliminating the need to restart the engine.
All Toro Recyclers have a 2-year full warranty, as well as Toro's 3-year Guaranteed-To-Start (GTS) promise, and a new 3-year limited powertrain warranty that covers the sealed maintenance-free transmission and the engine. See your local Toro retailer for complete warranty details.
Look for Recycler mowers this spring at Toro dealers and The Home Depot™ stores. For more information on the Recycler mower or other Toro products, contact Toro toll free at 1-800-348-2424 or visit www.toro.com
