Toro 20952 Steel Deck Recycler Petrol Lawnmower

  • Product Details

    Equipped with a tough 48cm steel cutting deck, the Toro 20952 Recycler® Mower is ideal for gardeners with medium-sized lawns. It also offers a highly versatile approach to grass disposal with three cutting options, while Toro’s thoughtful design features ensure comfort and ease of use at all times.

    This mower features three different methods of grass disposal: rear discharge, rear collection, and recycling. The rear discharge option ejects the grass clippings back out of the mower, which is very handy when you are dealing with long and thick grass, as it prevents the cutting blade becoming clogged up and keeps everything moving. For the collection function meanwhile, the 20952 is equipped with a large 60 litre capacity grassbag, its excellent size reducing the number of stops you’ll need to make in order to empty it, allowing you to work in a far more time-efficient manner. However, the greatest time-saver is the mower’s recycling feature. The grass cuttings are chopped up many times before being returned to the ground, rapidly decomposing and providing the soil with vital nutrients, thus helping to maintain a green and healthy lawn. This is a great eco-friendly way to cut your grass, and it looks tidy too as the clippings are cut up very small.

    Versatility is also offered with regards to the height of cut. This can be adjusted with two levers on the wheels, allowing the selection of heights between 21mm and 98mm and preparing the mower for a wide variety of cutting conditions. Additionally, if you raise the cutting height to the highest setting, the mower also functions as a leaf shredder and collector. Switching between collection and recycling functions is also made incredibly convenient with just a flick of the handy Recycle-on-Demand lever.

    Ease of use is similarly ensured by the 20952’s variable speed AutoMatic Drive System. This self-propulsion system allows the mower to match your pace, slowing down and speeding up based on how quickly or slowly you are moving. This makes pushing the mower a far less strenuous task and lets you work in a far more time-efficient way. Power is provided by a 159cc Toro OHV engine with an Alternator, promising quiet and fuel-efficient operation. Starting the engine meanwhile is made easy with two options: the standard recoil handle, or an electric key start, which works in the same manner as a car’s ignition. Both of these are located within easy reach from a standing position, so you don’t need to bend down to operate them.

    Convenience and comfort are also ensured by Toro’s other intelligent design features. For example, this mower comes fitted with an Operator Presence Control lever located within easy reach of the handlebar. This is a great safety feature which allows you to stop the engine at any time by simply releasing the lever. The height-adjustable handlebar meanwhile ensures that you can find the most suitable mowing position for your height, guaranteeing comfortable operation at all times. Finally, the handlebar can also be folded for easy transportation and compact storage. Weight: 38.5kg

    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.
