Acreage owners now have a new tractor alternative with Toro’s TimeCutter SW Series zero-turn tractors. The new models combine the maneuverability and time-savings of a zero-turn mower with the familiar ease of a steering wheel and speed control pedal, much like a car or tractor.

Available starting in January 2015, the new TimeCutter SW Series features several groundbreaking innovations. The Smart Park braking system automatically stops the mower deck and sets the parking brake when the user gets off the mower — while keeping the engine running — so the user can get back on and continue mowing with a quick tap of the speed control pedal.

It also sets the parking brake within five seconds after the mower is turned off so it’s easy to start every time, even if the power take-off (PTO) switch is accidentally switched on.
