Two new Reelmaster fairway mowers enhance greenkeeper opportunities
By SCG Newsdesk
Turfcare specialists Toro have brought two new lightweight mowers to the market as they continue to expand their highly popular Reelmaster range.
With the addition of the new Reelmaster 3555-D and 3575-D fairway mowers, Toro says both new machines will make the job easier and more efficient for greenkeepers. Both mowers also tip the scales at approximately 500lbs less than comparable four-wheel Toro mowers.
With the weight balanced from front-to-back and side-to-side, a low centre of gravity is created. When this is combined with smooth turf-friendly tyres, the result is a reduction in turf compaction and damage.
Another major feature of the new mowers is the highly manoeuvrable three-wheel-drive system, which allows the machines to make tight turns with ease, reduces turnaround time and significantly decreases the potential for turf tear.
As well as being notable for their weight, Toro says both machines are also among the quietest in their class. Their sound registers the same as a motorbike from 25 feet away, making them ideal for courses in residential areas.
They are powered by a 24.8bhp Kubota diesel engine giving them plenty of power to climb hills, even while running groomers and rear roller brushes. Despite that, they use less fuel per acre than traditional fairway mowers.
Jeff Anguige, national sales manager at Lely Turfcare, says: “These new Reelmasters were designed to take precision cutting to a completely new level.
“Their quality and performance combined with ease of operation and maintenance make for two welcome additions to the highly successful and popular Reelmaster range.”
