BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Toro has released the TurfMaster 30-in. walk-behind mower.

The 30-in. deck on the TurfMaster features a precisely timed, twin-blade cutting system and a 3-in-1 design for mulching, bagging or side-discharge. The deck is constructed of 13-gauge steel and is outfitted with a strong bullnose front bumper, skid plates on the bottom of the deck, plus a metal rear door. For additional durability, the mower has a cast aluminum frame, a thick, one-piece handle, as well as brush guards and an engine guard to protect components from damage.

"Landscape contractors are looking for ways to be more productive, and a wider deck equals faster mowing time,” explains Tim Koch, senior marketing manager for Toro. “In addition to reducing mowing time, the TurfMaster is designed to be tough, which is important for long-term productivity. Every component is built for heavy use in rough conditions, to help withstand everything from curbs to trailer impacts.”

With the Toro two-point height-of-cut system, the operator can make adjustments from 1 ½-in., to 5-in., in ½-in. increments. Also, the mower features a single bail control system for easy operation and a blade brake clutch so the operator can disengage the blades without shutting off the engine. “We believe operators will be pleased that we've expanded the deck size without sacrificing ease of operation, maneuverability, or quality of cut compared to a 21-in. mower,” adds Koch.

Powered by a commercial-grade Kawasaki FJ180V gas engine with a spin-on oil filter, the TurfMaster has a rear-wheel drive transmission with variable ground speeds up to 4.1 mph. The mower also has a one-gallon fuel tank to extend operating time between fueling.

The Toro TurfMaster 30-in. mower comes with a one-year limited commercial-use warranty and a two-year limited commercial-use engine warranty.
