Toro® Multi Pro® 5800 Turf Sprayer: Award Winning Innovation
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (February 24, 2012) - The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) recognized the Toro® Multi Pro® 5800 turf sprayer as one of the most innovative new products on the market for 2011 by selecting it as an Agricultural Engineering 50 (AE50) winner.
Each year, for over two decades, the AE50 judges review a number of entries and recognize outstanding achievement by selecting the best new products of the year. Among a long list of criteria, the winning products are ultimately selected based on which equipment makes the most impact on agricultural and biological systems industries.
All of the award-winning products boast innovative labor-saving features, while at the same time improving user safety. Toro's Multi Pro 5800 turf sprayer certainly fits the bill by offering users unprecedented spray precision and accuracy. Additionally, Toro incorporated a number of ground-breaking features into the Multi Pro 5800, including:
- A Pro Control XP Console to ensure the desired amount of spray is applied.
- A six-diaphragm pump to produce twice the volume of spray while delivering pinpoint accuracy.
- Simplification of the chemical loading process with the Cleanload Eductor.
- A cutting-edge fresh water rinse system to save hours in labor maintaining the equipment.
The Toro Multi Pro 5800 was showcased in the January / February issue of Resource magazine.
