Toro Adds New BC-25 Brush Chipper to Its Tree Care Equipment Line
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (February 28, 2011) - Thanks to its lightweight and compact design, the new high-capacity, towable Toro® BC-25 brush chipper can go anywhere an operator needs to work. Weighing just over 1,000 lbs and engineered with a folding feed tray, this brush chipper can be pulled behind a small SUV or minivan, and easily maneuvered on turf and through standard 36-in gates - making it an ideal machine for landscapers, do-it-yourselfers and rental customers.
The BC-25 is engineered with a gravity-feed system that includes a 23-in by 20-in feed opening, 6-in capacity and two single-edge cutter blades. The Kohler® Command Pro CH25 V-Twin engine with heavy-duty centrifugal clutch on the BC-25 quickly turns piles of brush into piles of fine mulch for planter beds and walking paths. And for ongoing production, the BC-25 is designed with a patent-pending mulching block to prevent jams and patent-pending replaceable cutter block, which allows operators to maintain close tolerance to the cutter blade.
“The BC-25 is engineered to stand up to and meet the demands of everyday use,” says Greg Lawrence, product marketing manager at Toro. “Our goal with these patent-pending innovations is to increase both the operator's and the machine's productivity during long-hours of operation.”
For ease of transportation, the BC-25 comes standard with trailer lights, as well as a rubber torsion suspension axle for smooth trailering and an adjustable swing-away jack with pneumatic tires.
Toro offers a new Pro-Sharp Blade Sharpening Service for the BC-25 brush chipper. This service is a cost-effective way to ensure equipment is in optimum operating condition. Visit www.toro.com/pro-sharp
