Toro introduces ProLine H800 direct collect rotary mowers

Mowing and collecting clippings and leaves in a snap just got easier with the new ProLine H800 direct collect rotary mowers. The new ProLine series will be available to turf and grounds managers across North America through Toro’s trusted distribution network. The new mowers will include professional-grade features engineered into every machine to deliver maximum durability and productivity.

The ProLine H800 mower allows grounds crews to quickly mow and collect in a single pass thanks to the PLH 800’s innovative 50-inch cutting deck and Smart AirFlow system that transfers debris directly into the hopper. When the hopper is full, the cutting deck automatically shuts off to prevent overfilling. Dumping clippings is also a simple task thanks to the ProLine’s 77-inch high lift dump-from-the-seat system, making it possible to dump clippings directly into the bed of a truck or dumpster.

Operators are ensured a full day of efficient, high-performance operation thanks to a powerful 24.8-hp. Yanmar diesel engine, a large 10.8-gallon fuel tank, top speed of 9.3 mph and a 1 cubic yard high-volume collection hopper, offering the largest capacity in its class. In addition, the Toro ProLine 800 features heavy-duty caster forks, a tough welded steel bullnose bumper and long-lasting skid protection, all contributing to outstanding overall durability.

“With maximum productivity and reliability top of mind, we knew we wanted to offer turf professionals a mower that is engineered with the best and latest technology to help get jobs done quickly, with exceptional results and unmatched efficiency,” said Chris Cooper, Toro senior marketing manager. “The ProLine H800 provides exceptional mowing and collection performance, unrivaled productivity, and superior durability.”

Engineered for maximum maneuverability in a variety of applications, the ProLine H800 has a 4-wheel-drive transmission with a locking differential and hydrostatic drive for optimum traction. It also offers a short turning radius and comes equipped with a foldable roll-over-protection-system to avoid branches and other overhead obstacles. Possessing a narrow width of 57 inches and no exterior fans or tubing, the machine is built to move easily in confined areas and features a high ground clearance of 5.9 inches to prevent getting hung-up on curbs and uneven terrain.

The ProLine H800 mower also comes with other smart maintenance features such as a Smart Cool system to keep the engine ventilated, automatic deck cleaning wipers to help prevent clogging, tool-free swing out radiator and fuel tank for easy service maintenance access, and a tilting deck for easy cleanup.
