In early 2020, Toro will launch its next generation of out-front rotary mowers for the Groundsmaster product line. These new Groundsmaster 3200/3300 mowers are designed to be durable and tackle tough jobs all year round, increasing productivity and offering an enhanced operator experience.
The Groundsmaster 3200/3300 mowers are built to last and feature powerful 24.7 and 37.4 hp Tier 4 / Stage 5 Yanmar diesel engines. Combined with an advanced pump and motor drivetrain, the overall performance and durability of the machine is maximized. In addition, Toro’s legendary cutting decks feature a strong 7-gauge steel deck shell with side bumpers, rugged cast iron spindles with dual-tapered roller bearings, thick .25-inch heat-treated blades, and a front bullnose bumper to provide maximum protection. The cutting decks also easily tip up into a service position for quick routine maintenance.
The Groundsmaster 3200/3300 mowers offer improved productivity features for getting the job done quickly, including 60- and 72-inch side-discharge, rear-discharge and flail cutting decks – along with fast ground speeds up to 15 mph for moving between job sites efficiently. Toro’s exclusive CrossTrax all-wheel-drive system provides automatic traction control, shifting power to the wheels in slippery conditions to access more challenging terrain. The 12-gallon fuel tank maximizes mowing time and minimizes downtime to refuel. Plus, an impressive 7.8-inch ground clearance makes it easy for the mowers to climb curbs and maneuver over other obstacles.
In terms of operator comfort, adjustable suspension seats, tilt steering, and an optional all-season cab enclosure will help reduce operator fatigue and allow for all-day and multi-season use. Intuitive controls are at the operator’s fingertips on the armrest console, making it simple for the operator to react to changing conditions. Additionally, the onboard InfoCenter displays service reminders, alerts and diagnostic information.
“The new design focuses on enhancing the overall operator experience, from ingress/egress, seat and steering wheel adjustability and fingertip controls, to ensuring the platform offers optimal sightlines,” said Chris Hannan, senior marketing manager at Toro. “A more comfortable operator is a more productive operator. In addition, the many other improvements we’ve made will increase the performance, durability, and productivity of the machines.”
For added versatility, the new Groundsmaster 3200/3300 will be compatible with a range of attachments for multi-season use, including a Boss plow, cab enclosures and other snow implements.
