Toro has announced the release of a new model of the SmartStow mower - the first petrol mower that can be folded and stored vertically without having to drain the fuel and oil.
The new 20961 model now has rear-wheel drive, an Automatic Drive System and Recycle on Demand as standard. The Automatic Drive System automatically matches the mower’s speed to the user’s walking pace, while a Traction Assist handle enables improved control on difficult terrain. Traction is further enhanced with the introduction of rear-wheel drive.
The Recycle-on-Demand feature allows the user to switch between collecting, cutting or recycling clippings at the pull of a lever.
The company says these new features add to the unique ability of the SmartStow to store vertically with no petrol or oil spills. The mower features a 55cm steel cutting deck.
Julie Dommett, Marketing Manager for Toro, commented, “These new developments highlight the ongoing innovation Toro strives to maintain across all its products and ranges. With more than 1,500 patents related to turf maintenance, innovation is at the heart of everything we do, and we are delighted to offer this new product to the market.”
The SmartStow 20961 model comes with a 2 year full coverage warranty and has an RRP of £629.
