Toro Introduces New Side-By-Side Utility Vehicles

Toro is launching a new line of side-by-side utility vehicles (UTVs), with two versatile, gas-powered electronic fuel injection (EFI) models - the 500 EFI and 700 EFI - available this spring.

The new Toro UTVs are powered by 4-stroke engines with EFI technology for improved fuel efficiency, and come with Duramatic automatic transmissions, dynamic engine braking, and electronic 2WD/4WD selection as standard. Additional features include a digital display that provides instant access to critical operating information. They can also be customized with a range of accessories including windshields, cabs, plow blades, light kits, winches, a stereo, and more.

The transformable design of the tilting rear cargo box allows conversion to a flatbed in minutes to enhance hauling versatility. The 700 EFI has a total payload capacity of 1,500 pounds (1,100 pounds for the 500 EFI), and both models are equipped with a standard front brush guard and adjustable CAM-style shocks for 10 inches of ground clearance to handle rough and challenging terrain. Integrated front and rear two-inch receivers give users the ability to hook up trailers or attachments at either end of the machine.

“Our customers have been asking for a Toro UTV to make their off-road acreage tasks faster and easier,” explains Anna Foster, Toro marketing manager. The new models, with the range of optional attachments, can meet the needs of contractors, agribusinesses and acreage or rural land owners looking to get tasks done more efficiently, she adds.
