The Toro Z MasterProfessional 5000 Series now has two new models with rear discharge decks. Featuring Toro’sTURBO FORCE cutting deck with durable 7-gauge steel, robust cast iron spindle housings, and high-strength steel blades, the

Toro rear discharge mowers are available in 60” and 72” cutting widths. The decks are designed with two blades rotating clockwise and one blade rotating counter-clockwise to spread clippings evenly through the rear discharge port.

These new rear discharge mowers promote enhanced productivity in taller grass and weed conditions. Cleanup time is quicker, since clippings are contained within the path of the mower. The Toro Z Master Professional 5000 Series mowers with rear discharge are ideal for roadside and median mowing, cemetery maintenance, and mowing near flowers beds, parking lots and other areas where debris needs to be contained.

“Rear discharge design is not new to Toro,” says Chris Hannan, marketing manager at The Toro Company. “We have been manufacturing rear discharge mowers for years on our larger commercial Groundsmaster® mowers, but we feel there is a growing need for these mowers in the Z Master product line.”

Toro rear discharge mowers are available with 25 hp* and 26.5 hp* Kohler Command Pro EFI propane engines. The closed-loop EFI technology improves fuel efficiency, features best-in-class starting, and can reduce downtime because the mowers operate without carburetors.
