Yanmar America to provide Toro with Tier 4 compliant diesel engines for commercial applications.

| October 23, 2012

The Toro Co. announced a partnership with Yanmar America Corp. Yanmar will provide diesel engines for select Toro commercial turf maintenance equipment. The Yanmar diesel engines will allow Toro to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier 4 emissions regulations, which go into effect Jan. 1, 2013.
 
Yanmar will provide Toro with EPA compliant diesel engine models. The low total lifecycle ownership cost of Yanmar’s diesel engines along with innovative technology and reduced environmental impact were deciding factors in Toro’s decision to form a partnership with Yanmar. The first Toro products to feature Yanmar’s Tier 4 compliant diesel engine technology will be select commercial mowers over 25 horsepower.
 
Tier 4 is the strictest EPA emissions requirement for off-highway diesel engines. The regulations set specific limits on the amount of pollutants, specifically oxides of nitrogen and particulate matter that can be released into the environment. The requirements are part of the federal Clean Air Act to reduce air pollution because of its potential hazards to human health and the environment. In May 2004, as part of its Clean Diesel Program, the EPA finalized a comprehensive rule to reduce emissions from non-road diesel engines. The rule consists of four tiers of emissions standards; Tier 4 is the final stage.  
 
"This is a wonderful opportunity for Yanmar to partner with a category leading company like Toro. Both companies share a complete commitment to doing what's best for the environment today and in the future," commented Ted Bregar, President of Yanmar America.
 
“We are pleased with our new partnership with Yanmar,” stated Darren Redetzke, Vice President for Toro’s Commercial Business. “Toro is confident that our customers will appreciate the state-of-the-art Yanmar diesel engine technology which has been developed to ensure both high quality performance and the cleanest emissions.”
