The out-front rotary is part of the fleet for most grounds teams as an essential frontline machine, and two mowers from Toro’s next-generation GM3000 series, which launched at SALTEX to great aplomb, take the out-front to the next level. The series brings customers versatility, reduced downtime and mowing cycles, multiple cutting options and year-round productivity.

There are two engine models – a 24.7hp and a 37.4hp, both Stage V emissions compliant, with options of 152cm (60ins) or 183cm (72ins) rear, side, recycling and flail cutting decks. Both benefit from a transport speed of 22km/h to move between sites efficiently and a large 45.4 litre fuel capacity to maximise mowing time between refuelling. Also, Toro’s CrossTrax all-wheel drive system provides automatic traction control, shifting power to the wheels in slippery conditions.

Toro has focused particular attention on the durability of the deck in the design of this new series. With 4.5mm high strength steels decks, rugged spindles, a bullnose bumper and reinforced sideskids, the improvements made are aimed at longevity and reduced downtime. And with rotary and flail cutting deck options providing flexibility and value, it’s easy to see why Toro believes this to be the next generation of the out-front rotary.
