BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Toro introduces the all-new 28-inch hydro drive brush cutter to the residential and landscape contractor Toro Brush Cuttermarketplace. 

The Toro hydro drive brush cutter can handle nearly any brush up to 6 feet tall and most saplings up to 2 inches in diameter. Featuring a pivoting deck, the hydro drive brush cutter delivers a 3 ¾-inch height-of-cut.

A two-step blade engagement coupled with a parking brake, ensure the 28-inch hydro drive brush cutter is safe. Additionally, the operator can maneuver the machine in both forward and reverse with one hand. The standard 6-inch two-ply sealant-filled aggressive tread tires provide effective traction for brush removal projects on slopes or in ditches and culverts.

“This heavy-duty brush cutter really rounds out our offering of turf renovation products,” says Chris Hannan, Toro senior marketing manager. “We believe this will be a valuable piece of equipment for many landscape contractors and large property owners alike.”

The new unit also features a high-strength steel deck with large diameter pulleys that optimize the longevity of the belts. Additionally, the unique blade design reduces impact to the unit while a spindle shaft saddle prevents the blade bolt from loosening during normal operation. The brush cutter will begin shipping in early 2017.
