Toro Expands GrandStand Stand-On Mower Lineup

Edric Funk, marketing manager for Toro Landscape Contractor Equipment, talks about how the expanded GrandStand stand-on mowers lineup now appeals to a wider variety of contractors. Now offering 36', 40' and 60' models, in addition to the original 48' and 52' machines. The expanded lineup ensures that whether landscape contractors are working on a large commercial job or a small residential property, Toro has the right size mower to fit their needs. All models come equipped with Toro's Turbo Force cutting deck, which produces the high-quality after-cut appearance contractors are looking for, even when mowing long, wet grass. Select models include Toro's patented adjustable baffle, which allows landscape professionals to fine-tune their cutting performance in order to conquer changing seasons or turf conditions without sacrificing quality or efficiency. All Toro GrandStands feature the exclusive, patent-pending Flex-Ride operator platform suspension system that offers a smooth ride, reducing operator fatigue. The suspension system is self-compensating, to oblige operators of differing weights. A versatile fold-up platform reduces the need for a separate walk-behind mower by offering operators ride and walk capabilities to accommodate various jobsite conditions. The platform's large surface area also gives operators the freedom to adjust their position and shift their weight to comfortably operate the mower throughout the day. An anti-fatigue rubber mat with a non-slip surface has been incorporated into the platform design to reduce vibration transmitted to the operator, as well as increase the operator's traction on the machine.
