Toro’s debuting new equipment
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Toro is introducing three new products designed to meet the demands of landscape contractors at GIE+Expo 2021 in Louisville, Kentucky. Toro is showcasing the new Revolution Series of battery-powered commercial lawncare equipment, the Z Master and the Grandstand Revolution, and a new Z Master 7500-D with a massive144” cutting deck.
“The new Z Master Revolution and Grandstand Revolution take two of Toro’s beloved mower platforms and revolutionizes them with battery power that will outlast the sun,” said Chris Vogtman, director of Marketing at Toro. “We’re also excited to introduce the new Z Master 7500-D 144”, which helps landscapers make easy work of large amounts of acreage. Plus, all the new equipment comes Horizon360 capable, which is a real advantage for creating business efficiencies.”
Every Revolution machine is equipped with patent-pending software in the controls that enables smooth operation. It also gives operators a chance to customize the machine with adjustable deck rake, drive speed control options and blade tip speed settings.
The Revolution Series mowers are powered by Toro’s HyperCell Power System, and delivers all day power and reliability. The Battery Management System (BMS) allows for longer run times and quick charging to maximize productivity. HyperCell is built to run cooler than other power systems, so it can last as long as the sunlight. Ultimately, operators gain efficiencies, cut down on emissions and can complete more jobs with less hassle.

Those who got to test out the new mowers were surprised with how quiet the GrandStand Revolution was.
The Toro GrandStand Revolution Stand-On Mower, is a powerful machine designed for high performance, professional lawncare pros focused on optimizing their businesses. It’s the same ride only now its powered by Toro’s durable HyperCell batteries.
Featuring a Turbo Force Deck with adjustable baffle, operators can adjust the deck baffle to get the most pristine cut in any conditions. The Turbo Force deck is a 50 KSI 7-gauge high strength steel deck, complemented with an extra strength tubular chassis and durably rugged I-beam front-end. It also features dual capture anti-scalp rollers to ensure the highest quality of cut in the harshest terrain.
Rough bumps and challenging terrain are all in a day’s work. Feeling them shouldn’t have to be. The Toro GrandStand Revolution combines the speed and comfort of a zero-turn rider with the on-and-off ease of a wide area walk-behind — creating a fast, maneuverable and more productive alternative.
Z Master 7500-D 144”

Toro’s Z Master 7500-D is known to keep crew numbers to a minimum and productivity up — and now Toro is taking its capacity to a whole other level with a new 144” cutting deck.
The new Z Master 7500-D 144” adapts to changing terrain on the fly automatically by choosing the right operating mode for the conditions with Toro’s Horizon technology. The Horizon onboard intelligence platform enhances the performance of the machine in various mowing conditions, and protects the mower by monitoring engine oil temperature and pressure. You’ll save fuel costs while maintaining top-level performance.
The massive mowing deck can fold its wings up to 83 inches, allowing it to fit on most standard trailers. The wings flex up to 20 degrees and down to 15 degrees, which hug the ground as you mow, giving you a pro-quality cut on uneven terrain.
Built to last with a protective engine hood, bullnose bumper, 250-lb. Warner clutch and a 7-gauge deck, the new Z Master 7500-D 144” will get the job done.
The three new Toro products are all Horizon360 capable — Toro’s new business software for landscape contractors.
This all-in-one software suite allows landscape contractors to more effectively track the productivity of their crews and equipment, automate their billing process and enhance the time management of their businesses. Horizon360 also offers proof of service, job notes and office notes, real-time equipment tracking and a bi-lingual phone app for managing scheduling, weather events and multiple crews.
