Twin Lever Controls-MD: Twin Lever steering controls reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity. The straight-forward control logic is easy for new operators to learn and master. Steers like a “z” mower. Great for tracking in large open spaces and also maneuvering around obstacles. All around an intuitive control system.
Exclusive TURBO FORCE Deck - Floating Deck: High-capacity 7/10 gauge TURBO FORCE deck delivers unsurpassed strength, a superior cut, and increased productivity in extreme mowing conditions. Easily handles the most demanding conditions and resists damage from impacts and abrasion. The 5" deep deck features 8" aluminum spindles, a Bull Nose Bumper and a rubber discharge chute.
Patented Adjustable Baffle: Allows operator to achieve maximum cutting performance by fine-tuning deck to conquer changing conditions, unique job sites or different times of the season. In extreme conditions, the baffle can be opened in order to conserve power and achieve faster mowing speeds. In less demanding conditions, the baffle can be closed to yield micro-sized particles and maximize discharge velocity.
Rubber Discharge Chute: High performance rubber discharge chute allows for close trimming without damaging chute or landscape structures. Patented design provides exceptional clipping dispersion.
Premium Hydraulics: Independent, commercial-duty .6 cu. in. (10 cc) displacement pumps and wheel motors provide instant forward and reverse control without shifting.
Commercial-grade Deck Construction: The 7-gauge deck shell is further reinforced by a bull-nose front bumper, a 1/2" (1.3 cm) thick wear guard on the trim side, and a 3/8" (1 cm) thick reinforcement plate around the discharge opening.

Walk-Behind Bags: Toro® utility bags add convenience and productivity to everyday mowing. Use them for trash, tools, cell phone - whatever you need to pick up or carry with you.
Atomic® Mulching Blades: Atomic® mulching blades feature an aggressive "tooth" design that shreds grass and leaves into small particles. The teeth curl upward behind the blade to suspend clippings in the chamber so they are cut and re-cut until they virtually disappear.
Recycler® Mulching Kits: Recycler mulching kits deliver the industry's finest mulching performance and reduce mowing time up to 38% vs. bagging*. *Respondents in a Texas A&M University study cut their lawns 38% faster when they didn't bag.
Soft Baggers: Cloth bag kit available for seasonal clean-up, or small debris collection jobs.
TRU TRAK® Sulky: Toro's patented TRU TRAK® sulky is the industry's most innovative sulky design. Large, independently pivoting foot plates greatly reduce operator fatigue while the 2-point connection eliminates jack-knifing in turns or reverse. The unit tracks "true" and straight every time. Foot pads pivot into stowed position when operating in conditions not conducive to sulky operation and for trailering convenience.
The gross horsepower of this engine was laboratory rated by the engine manufacturer in accordance with SAE J1940. As configured to meet safety, emission, and operating requirements, the actual engine horsepower on this class of mower will be significantly lower.
