Pioneering technology helps professional gardeners power positive change

Mar 13, 2023  |   Professional Contractor

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Climate change and environmental concerns are accelerating the shift away from fossil fuels and towards more sustainable business practices. With the European launch of its pioneering Pro battery range for grounds maintenance professionals, Toro is leading the charge for positive change.

For over 100 years, Toro’s engineering excellence has pushed the boundaries in gardening and landscaping. This expertise has now solved one of the industry’s most pressing challenges: delivering petrol-powered levels of performance in rechargeable battery-powered equipment. The result is a breakthrough solution which combines pioneering battery technology with Toro’s class-leading equipment to help professionals meet the needs of their customers, their business.

Battery technology isn’t new to Toro. For years, it’s been reliably powering lawnmowers and equipment for domestic and golf users. Now Toro has re-engineered the technology to deliver the endurance and performance required by professional municipality and landscape contractors - all at the touch of a button.

Combining a series of 2.3 kWh battery packs, Toro’s HYPERCELL POWER SYSTEM™ drives a range of class-leading vehicles, all sharing the proven DNA of Toro’s petrol-powered equipment. This includes the Revolution range of mowers (Z MASTER and GRANDSTAND) as well as powerful workhorses and loaders including the ELECTRIC ULTRA BUGGY e2500 and our next generation eDINGO 500. Meanwhile, the FLEX-FORCE POWER SYSTEM™ battery is interchangeable across Toro’s Heavy-Duty Proline, Revolution Hand tools and eHoverPro mower. Optimised for each application, and incorporating a temperature-resistant casing, it puts versatile all-weather performance into the hands of professionals. Toro has also introduced a further lithium-ion battery-powered alternative to enhance its Workman vehicle range of petrol and lead acid electric solutions. 

From cutting lawns and clearing large areas of ground to trimming hedges or blowing leaves, the Toro Revolution range has the tools and the torque to get the job done – all with zero engine emissions.

Toro’s rechargeable battery-powered equipment makes solid business sense too. There are fewer components, simplifying service and maintenance. It’s light in weight and low in noise, enhancing user comfort. And it’s quick and easy to recharge from the mains, resulting in immediate and long-term cost-savings and rapid return on investment - highlighted by Toro’s Total Cost of Ownership calculator: https://sites.toro.com/leadthecharge/tco.html


Explains Anthony Nadalin, Director of Marketing EMEA at Toro: “The combination of Toro’s proven equipment and the new supercharged batteries can help professionals change the way they power their business, while also helping reduce environmental impact because of zero engine emissions and low levels of noise. The Pro battery range represents a positive step forward from an engineering and economic point of view.”
