Toro introduced the all-new 28-inch hydro drive brush cutter. Outstanding durability is a key feature of this new walk-behind model, making it ideal for contractors, acreage owners and hobby farmers.
The commercial-grade, self-propelled brush cutter is versatile and easy to use and can handle many applications as well as operators of varying skill levels. Its durable components and superior engineering allow operators to level brush, tall weeds, saplings, small trees and heavy vegetation with ease. The Toro hydro drive brush cutter can handle nearly any brush up to six feet tall and most saplings up to two inches in diameter. Featuring a pivoting deck, the hydro drive brush cutter delivers a 3 ¾“ height-of-cut.
A two-step blade engagement coupled with a parking brake, ensure the 28-inch hydro drive brush cutter is as safe as it is dependable. Additionally, the operator can maneuver this powerful machine in both forward and reverse with one hand. Incredibly stable, the standard 6” two-ply sealant-filled aggressive tread tires provide effective traction for brush removal projects on slopes or in ditches and culverts.
“This heavy-duty brush cutter really rounds out our offering of Turf Renovation products,” says Chris Hannan, Toro senior marketing manager. “We believe this will be a valuable piece of equipment for many landscape contractors and large property owners alike.”
The new unit also features quality components, including a high-strength steel deck with large diameter pulleys that optimize the longevity of the belts. Additionally, the unique blade design reduces impact to the unit while a spindle shaft saddle prevents the blade bolt from loosening during normal operation. These features combine to make an extremely reliable product, capable of handling a wide variety of challenging conditions. The brush cutter will begin shipping in early 2017.
