Mowing and collecting clippings and leaves should be easier with Toro’s new ProLine H800 direct collect rotary mowers. The new ProLine series will be available this month to turf and grounds managers across North America through Toro’s distribution network. The new mowers will include professional-grade features engineered into every machine to deliver maximum durability and productivity.
The ProLine H800 mower allows grounds crews to quickly mow and collect in a single pass thanks to the PLH 800’s 50-inch cutting deck and Smart AirFlow system that transfers debris directly into the hopper. When the hopper is full, the cutting deck automatically shuts off to prevent overfilling. Dumping clippings is also simple thanks to the ProLine's 77-inch high lift dump-from-the-seat system, making it possible to dump clippings directly into the bed of a truck or Dumpster.
The mowers include a 24.8 horsepower Yanmar diesel engine, a 10.8-gallon fuel tank, top speed of 9.3 mph and a 1 cubic yard high-volume collection hopper, offering the largest capacity in its class. It also features heavy-duty caster forks, a welded steel bullnose bumper and long-lasting skid protection.
“With maximum productivity and reliability top of mind, we knew we wanted to offer turf professionals a mower that is engineered with the best and latest technology to help get jobs done quickly, with exceptional results and unmatched efficiency,” Toro senior marketing manager Chris Cooper said.
The ProLine H800 has a 4-wheel-drive transmission with a locking differential and hydrostatic drive for optimum traction. It also offers a short turning radius and comes equipped with a foldable roll-over-protection-system to avoid branches and other overhead obstacles. Possessing a narrow width of 57 inches and no exterior fans or tubing, the machine is built to move easily in confined areas and features a high ground clearance of 5.9 inches to prevent getting hung up on curbs and uneven terrain. It also comes with other smart maintenance features such as a Smart Cool system to keep the engine ventilated, automatic deck cleaning wipers to help prevent clogging, tool-free swing out radiator and fuel tank for easy service maintenance access, and a tilting deck for easy cleanup.
