For high-end sports fields and venues, an attractive striped finish is essential — not only for the fans in the stands, but also for the TV audience watching broadcast events. Toro’s ProStripe 560 was built to deliver that quality of cut and clean, striped finish in one efficient step.
Now this compact, lightweight mower is better than ever with
several recent design enhancements. Check out all the new features that make it
the perfect choice for precision striping.
The latest updates to the ProStripe 560 include a commercial-grade
Kawasaki four-cycle engine, a trim side for trimming around edges, and a
larger-capacity 0.45 gallon (1.7 liter) fuel tank for longer mowing sessions.
The mower also features a ribbed, two-piece roller, which significantly
improves maneuverability and minimizes turf marking when compared to
single-piece roller configurations.
Front fins lift the grass for a clean cut, and a
high-capacity 21-gallon (80 liter) bagger volume optimizes airflow and
collection capability. In addition, a groomer brush attachment can be mounted
to the front of the unit to promote healthier turf and a cleaner cut by
reducing lateral blade growth and loosening surface debris.
Another unique feature of the new ProStripe 560 is the
aerospace-influenced blade design, which maximizes collection capabilities
while optimizing aftercut appearance. This results in high-definition striping
performance with excellent tracking.
The integrated MatchCut functionality is also beneficial
when crews need to mow at a consistent height using multiple machines across
the same area. The MatchCut feature allows for easy adjustment between seven
cutting heights (ranging from 0.5 inches to 2.6 inches in 0.29-inch
increments), and allows fine-tuning of the cutting height as well. Operators
can choose the ideal height of cut for each application and adjust the three-speed
transmission on the fly to accommodate a wide range of turf conditions and
personal mowing preferences.
Designed for productivity and control, the new ProStripe has
a full-width ergonomic handlebar, bail arm and easy-to-use Blade Brake Clutch (BBC)
control. When the handlebar is released, the BBC system stops the blade without
stopping the engine — allowing the operator to empty the grass bag or move from
site to site without shutting down the machine. New units also feature
enhancements in the overall balance of the machine, making it extremely simple
An integrated sail liner effectively manages dust and other
debris, drafting it away from the operator. Plus, each unit comes equipped with
a wash port to simplify cleaning the deck and blades.
The new ProStripe 560 is a must-have for highly manicured
sports fields and grounds that require a pristine, expertly striped appearance.
As an added benefit, striping can help reduce soil compaction and contribute to
the health of the turf.
