Toro 02612 HoverPro 450

  • Product Details

    The Toro HoverPro 450 is a petrol-powered hover mower, ideal for a medium-sized garden. This hover mower offers an ideal combination of lightness, manoeuvrability and mobility, enabling any operator, whatever their strength or experience of mowing, to reach outlying areas of their lawn with an ease which would be beyond a conventional electric machine.

    The mower’s cushion of air and absence of wheels minimise the risk of dropping off the grass edge and causing damage, making it ideal for use around flower beds, and its generous cutting width of 46cm, wider than that of many competing machines designed for medium gardens, allows the operator to mow efficiently, without wasting time. The lack of wheels also means this model is capable of reaching slopes and other uneven surfaces that would be beyond the capability of a wheeled machine; the HoverPro 450 is capable of mowing slopes of up to 45°, which would be difficult or impossible even for a less advanced hover mower.

    Everything about this model has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible. A good example of this is the ABS injection-moulded deck, which offers both lightness and strength, allowing you to use your 450 easily and confidently. Another good example is the nylon wire cutting system, which is lighter than a metal blade and both cheaper and easier to replace. In spite of the lack of a blade, the cutting system can still be adjusted over a range of 18-30mm, and Toro also offer an optional High-Rise-Kit for when the cutting height needs to be increased dramatically; the kit simply bolts on to the existing deck, and increases the cutting height by 35mm. Toro also offer other optional kits, which can be fitted to make this machine even more user-friendly, such as Transport Wheels to make transporting the machine to and from cutting areas easier without carrying, and Extension Handles to make working on slopes or hard-to-reach areas even easier.

    This mower also boasts a powerful 135cc OHC Honda engine, which has been developed to maximise efficiency and for continuous inclined use; its high power-to-weight ratio ensures lightness and the fuel pump ensures fuel delivery on even the toughest inclined surfaces.

    About Toro
    Toro are without doubt one of the world’s leading turf care machinery manufacturers, providing both the homeowner and professional user with a range of equipment designed to cater for every eventuality. The company was founded in 1914, not with the intention to create the Toro lawn mowers we know today, but with the singular purpose of providing The Bull Tractor Company with a reliable source of engines. They did this to great effect until the beginning of WW1, when their attentions were turned to providing steering winches for merchant shipping during this time. By 1920, a move into the turf care industry was imminent when five cylinder mower units were attached to a Toro tractor in order to maintain the fairways at The Minikahda Club in Minneapolis. By 1928 a portfolio of industry leading machines had been produced and it was time for Toro to branch out into International territories.

    The year of 1938 saw the first production of the Homelawn — the first of the domestic Toro lawn mowers — yet by 1942 all domestic manufacturing of Toro lawn mowers was halted in an effort to build tank, canon and anti-aircraft equipment for the U.S. army during WW2. Expansion follows the disruption of the war years for the next few decades, when Toro expand into new markets with industry firsts, including the snow-throwing Snow Hound in 1952. Further development of the all important turf care equipment saw Toro form a partnership with America’s Super Bowl organisers in 1966 before it moved back into the agricultural scene with industry leading irrigation equipment. The turn of the millennium sees The Toro Company going from strength to strength, continuing to develop Toro lawn mowers and groundbreaking solutions to turf maintenance for professional and domestic customers, whilst at the same time investing time and money back into community projects, resulting in being named Jefferson Award 2012 winner.
