BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Toro has upgraded its popular 22" Recycler® mower lineup with a range of new mowers focused on delivering differentiated consumer benefits. Both gas-powered and 60V* Flex-Force battery-powered models have been enhanced with performance-driven features that complement Toro's focus on ease and reliability.

"Toro has been long recognized as the innovator in helping customers care for their property," notes Aran Brosnan, senior marketing manager at Toro. "Part of that innovation includes new features, such as the Vortex Technology™ on the enhanced Recycler mowers, which increases airflow to supercharge grass cutting."

Toro's patented Vortex Technology is powered by an intake system that fuels the cutting chamber with additional airflow. The air infusion whirls grass clippings around the cutting chamber at a faster rate, either shredding them into ultra-fine clippings or shooting them into the newly-designed Super Bagger with increased velocity. The improved aerodynamics create grass clippings that act as Lawn Vitamins™ nourishing a healthier lawn. 

For those times of the year when lawn maintenance requires additional cleanup, users can throw on Toro's new Super Bagger. Combining Vortex Technology with enhanced bag-fill capabilities, the mower is transformed into a lawn vacuum, leaving the yard looking pristine after the seasonal cleanup. Additionally, the new, tapered bag design promotes easier, cleaner bag emptying.

Furthermore, Toro is doubling down on its commitment to an end-user experience focused on ease. The new Personal Pace® Auto-Drive™ is the next evolution of the self-propelled mower. Much like a car's automatic transmission, no knobs, levers, or adjustments are needed to change the mower's speed. Users can grab anywhere on the steering wheel-inspired handle and walk at the pace they chose. The intelligent mower will sense and adjust to the user in real-time. With an arc, telescoping handle, and a bail that requires 50% less force to engage, users will stay comfortable even on the extra-long jobs. 

"At Toro, we're looking to extend our position as the #1 Lawn Mower Brand by continually reinventing both the customer experience and the outstanding results that today's homeowners demand," said Brosnan. "With the enhanced Recycler lineup, homeowners can receive all the core benefits of these new technologies powered by both battery and gas options."

Users can also rest easy knowing that Toro stands behind its Recyclers with a 2-year full warranty on both the gas and battery mowers.* Toro also stands behind the power sources with a 3-year guaranteed-to-start™ on all gas engines and a full 3-year warranty on batteries.

The complete lineup of Toro Recycler mowers is available now. More information can be found on Toro's website or by visiting the Toro Locator to find a distributor near you. 

* Battery manufacturer rating = 60V maximum and 54V typical usage. Actual voltage varies with load.

* Warranty periods differ for the engine, battery, and other components. See retailer for complete warranty details.
