Toro are a premium U.S. brand, known for their innovations in the field of mulching, or ’recycling’ grass-cuttings in order to improve the health of a lawn. This high-quality steel decked lawnmower, with a 48cm cutting-width for speedy mowing on larger lawns, is a great example of why they are who they are.
The engine is a 159cc Toro OHV unit that delivers very high performance-levels and excellent fuel-economy.
The start is electric and is operated by the simple turn of a key, saving time and energy and improving on starting reliability.
This self-propelled model is fitted ADS; an intelligent automatic-drive system that means you can work at whichever pace you choose. The mower moves at your preferred walking speed, adapting to your pace, even on inclines. Apart from making use comfortable and bespoke to your own movement, this means you can tackle more difficult areas or longer patches of grass as slowly as you need to, or move faster if you wish to get the job done quicker.
The Toro 20952 has a tough steel deck for strength and durability and comes with a number of great features for cutting-convenience and comfort.
Two-in-one mowing is offered, with cut-and-collect into the time-saving 60.5-litre grass-collector, and cut-and-mulch that can be carried out with or without the bag in place.
It is here, when it comes to mulching, that Toro’s pioneering research and development really comes to the fore.
First of all you can switch between bagging and mulching with the simple pull of a lever, saving time spent removing the grass collector and fitting the mulch-plug.
Secondly, Toro have perfected the mulching process, designing the cutting chamber and the blade so as to optimise it, creating optimum air-flow to keep the cuttings in the chamber for longer so they can be cut multiple times before they are dropped in among the grass blades to become natural fertiliser, breaking down, providing nutrients and improving the general health and appearance of the lawn.
The cutting-height can be adjusted and is two-point lever-operated with six stages available from 21mm through to 98mm for maximum flexibility.
More comfort and convenience are in evidence when you look at the handles, which fold down easily with no fuss, making storage and transport super-simple. The main handlebar is also fitted with a soft-grip for comfort.
