Toro Introduces New Walk-Behind Brush Cutter

Toro introduces the all-new 28-inch hydro drive brush cutter to its rental product offering. Designed for durability and ease-of-use, the company says, the commercial-grade, self-propelled brush cutter is ideal for the rental industry.

The new brush cutter can handle brush up to six feet tall and saplings up to two inches in diameter. Featuring a pivoting deck, the hydro drive brush cutter delivers a 4-inch height-of-cut. A two-step blade engagement, coupled with a parking brake, ensure that the 28-toro brush cutterinch hydro drive brush cutter is safe to use. An operator can maneuver this machine in both forward and reverse with one hand. Incredibly stable, the standard 6-inch four-ply tractor lug tires provide effective traction for brush removal projects on slopes or in ditches and culverts.

“The new hydro drive brush cutter is an exciting addition to our rental product offering,” says Sean O’Halloran, marketing manager at Toro. “Designed specifically for the rental industry, the hydro drive brush cutter is extremely rugged and features simple, intuitive controls that both professional contractors and novice operators alike will be able to master in a matter of minutes.”

The new unit also features quality components, including a high-strength steel deck with large diameter pulleys that optimize the longevity of the belts. Furthermore, an offset blade design reduces impacts to the unit while a spindle shaft saddle prevents the blade bolt from loosening during normal operation. These features combine to make an extremely reliable product, capable of handling a wide variety of challenging conditions. The brush cutter will begin shipping in fall 2016.
