Toro Introduces Edger Attachment for Sand Pro® 3040/5040
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (January 18, 2011) - New for the Toro® Sand Pro® 3040/5040 infield groomer, the Sport Field Edger attachment is designed to quickly and easily maintain the grass edge of the outfield on baseball and softball fields by removing overgrown turf and infield lip build-up.
“The primary appeal of the Edger attachment is that it eliminates much of the hand work done in edging base lines, warning tracks and infield/outfield boundaries on ball fields,” said Kevin Conry, senior marketing manager for Toro's Commercial Business. “It may take eight hours to edge a field by hand - with the Edger attachment on a Sand Pro 3040/5040, it can be done in less than two hours.”
The Toro Edger attachment, the first of its kind in the industry, is built for use on the Toro Sand Pro 3040/5040 utility vehicles. Both Sand Pro models offer a rear hydraulic Quick Attach System™ (QAS) enabling operators to change out attachments in under one minute with no special tools required. With more than 21 attachments available, the Sand Pro keeps sports fields and golf courses in “game day” condition every day.
