GREENBUSH, Minn. — Altoz introduces the new TRX for 2017— the industry’s first tracked zero-turn mower. TRX provides patent-pending technology for commercial use on sloped, wet and rough terrain. Equipped with rear-mounted tracks and torsional suspension system, the TRX allows lawn care professionals, utility companies and municipalities to maintain places they simply can’t effectively or safely cut with a traditional zero-turn mower.
The TRX recently received a 2016 Pro Tool Innovation Award (PTIA), which recognizes best-in-class products for their level of innovation, power and value.
“We think the TRX is truly an unprecedented product for the power equipment industry,” comments Dennis Brazier Altoz CEO/Founder. “The TRX’s unique combination of traction, stability and low ground pressure with durability, power and handling will make it a valuable asset for municipalities, utility companies, lawn professionals, golf courses and general contractors concerned about safety while tackling a wide range of conditions and terrain.”
The exceptional stability and traction of the TRX enables operators to safely maneuver inclines, side hills, ditches, varying terrain and wet conditions with the agility and comfort found in all Altoz zero-turn mowers. Because of Its low ground pressure and high traction, the TRX has minimal compaction, eliminating ruts and unsightly tire marks while maintaining superior traction.
TorqFlex front suspension and rear torsional track suspension provides a smooth ride by bridging uneven terrain and reducing operator fatigue. Additionally, TRX’s commercial-grade track and run-flat front tires eliminate potential tire damage caused by sharp rocks, glass or debris commonly encountered in vacant lots, roadside ditches and spaces bordering high traffic areas.
“I was really impressed with the TRX’s ride quality — it was unbelievably smooth and quiet for a tracked vehicle. It felt as if you are actually sticking to the side of the hill with the increased stability, yet it doesn’t rip up the grass, even in sharp turns,” comments Todd Gjovik, Altoz dealer.
The TRX will include the option of 61-inch or 66-inch decks, Kohler Command Pro EFI 33 horsepower or Vanguard EFI 37 horsepower engines. The TRX will ship to Altoz dealers early Spring of 2017. GIE+Expo attendees will have the opportunity to see and demo the TRX in-person at the Altoz outdoor demo booth (#6700-D) in Louisville, Ky,. October 19–21.
