All new from the ground up, the Groundsmaster 5900 series delivers industry leading power, precise maneuverability, four-wheel drive capability, increased operator comfort, and reduced noise levels to benefit both the operator and the surrounding environment.

 

A fleet manager in the Denver area was more than impressed with the power and maneuverability of the Groundsmaster 5900 series.  Working in Colorado’s rolling hills and high altitudes can present challenges, but the Groundsmaster 5900 series is able to overcome these obstacles. The fleet manager commented that on several hill sites the Groundsmaster 5900 provided excellent traction and plenty of power to handle the high altitude.

 

Equipped with a 99-horsepower (hp) Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine, the Groundsmaster 5900 series can mow an acre in less than five minutes, or more than 13 acres an hour.

 

The Groundsmaster 5900 series gets the job done quickly with optimal operator comfort. The mowers come standard with a four-way adjustable seat plus an air ride suspension. The seat-mounted ControlHub™ offers easy fingertip actuation of controls.

 

An equipment manager from Seattle enjoyed the comfort that resulted from the electronic controls coupled with the seating position, and said that it helps make his job much easier. For additional comfort, the Groundsmaster 5910 offers a factory integrated climate-controlled cab which includes air conditioning and heating, as well as 360 degrees of visibility.

 

In addition to providing customers with quality comfort, Toro has ensured that the Groundsmaster 5900 series stays in good health with the onboard InfoCenter™ diagnostics.  The InfoCenter display provides critical operating information for machine management, system protection, trouble-shooting and safety. Standard on the Groundsmaster 5900 and 5910 rotary mowers, InfoCenter provides clear and simple information on calibration, diagnostics and systems alerts for the operator and technician.
