The Toro Company has added a new stand-on spreader/sprayer to its turf renovation product line. This machine makes spreading and spraying turf properties easier with Lean to Steer technology, intuitive controls and large capacity hopper and spray tank in a compact design.
Toro’s unique Lean to Steer technology allows the operator to control forward/reverse and left/right steering with one hand. That means the operator can adjust spread and spray settings on the fly at any time during operation because one hand is always free.
With forward speeds of up to 5.5 mph, the Toro spreader sprayer is built for high productivity and precision application. The machine offers a large 175-lb. spreader hopper and a 20-gal. spray tank, so the operator can spend more time on the job and less time stopping to refill the machine. An additional 50-lb. dry fertilizer bag can also be carried on top of the spray tank to minimize refill downtime, and a standard hand-held spray wand is included for precise spot treatments.
“We know capacity and productivity are important to our customers, and our new stand-on spreader/sprayer is designed with that in mind,” says Chris Hannan, marketing manager for The Toro Company. “It’s precise, it’s easy to use, and it’s efficient for feeding and treating all kinds of turf — from small jobs to larger commercial properties.”
Other features include an intuitive control layout with easy-to-use controls for convenient spread and spray setting adjustments. The compact design also provides excellent maneuverability for spraying and spreading in tight spaces.
In addition, Toro’s spreader sprayer is designed for comfort with a suspended stand-on operator platform that helps reduce operator fatigue — similar to the platform on Toro’s GrandStand stand-on mower and 30” stand-on aerator. The stainless steel operator platform, isolation mounts and ergonomic padded knee bolster all work together for a more comfortable ride.
Designed for heavy-duty use, the Toro spreader sprayer is equipped with a commercial-grade 9-hp Subaru engine, a hydrostatic transmission and a rugged, corrosion-resistant stainless steel frame
