BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Toro’s growing line of 60V Flex-Force models feature two newcomers for 2020, including a 21” steel deck push mower and a 24” hedge trimmer.
“There’s a common perception that choosing a cordless battery-powered product means compromising on power or features,” says Chris Urlaub, associate marketing manager at Toro. “That’s not the case with the Flex-Force line. Our priority was to design for performance, first and foremost. These are full-featured products with the same performance as our gas-powered products; they just happen to be battery-powered.”
As America’s No. 1 lawn mower brand,2 Toro understands that homeowners want a mower that’s easy to start, easy to use and easy to maintain. The new Toro® 21-inch Recycler® 60V mower is designed to save time, finish faster and make your job easier. Built on Toro’s No. 1 selling Recycler platform, these mowers cut nutrient-rich clippings into fine pieces and return them to the soil to promote a healthy-looking lawn. The mowers also start with the push of a button, and the deck is made of steel instead of plastic for added durability.
Toro will also launch a 60V hedge trimmer as part of the new Flex-Force Power System line. The hedge trimmer provides superior ease of use and comfort when trimming vertically, as the handle rotates 90 degrees in each direction. The powerful 60V lithium-ion battery is lightweight and compact but delivers the power and run time to get the job done right. Rounding out the 60V lineup are a cordless string trimmer, leaf blower, 22” Recycler mowers, and 21” PowerClear® snow blowers.
“From mowing and trimming to clearing leaves and blowing snow, the Flex-Force Power System offers year-round versatility,” adds Urlaub. “It’s the perfect option for customers who want proven Toro performance with the ease and low-maintenance benefits of battery power.”
All of the products in the 60V Flex-Force Power System line feature Toro’s lithium-ion batteries, which have intelligent software that automatically optimizes run time and power for the product and the application. In addition, the products are covered by full warranties that are among the most comprehensive in the category. Products can be purchased with or without batteries and charger, which are also available separately and are interchangeable among the products in the line.
Toro 60V products with the Flex-Force Power System are available now at participating Toro retailers. For complete product details, visit toro.com/60V.
