Toro 22188TE Aluminium Deck Heavy Duty Petrol Mower

  • Product Details

    All of Toro’s commercial recycling lawnmowers come with a two year full coverage warranty, because Toro are confident that their machines can consistently perform to professional standards. This range also comes kitted out with a variety of features that make the daunting task of mowing a larger lawn easy and comfortable, saving time, fuel and effort. Toro’s 22188TE heavy-duty mower is a premium commercial-grade recycling mower and offers an unparalleled quality of cut with a reduced environmental impact.

    The fuel tank of the mower’s Kawasaki four-cycle FJ 179cc Engine is specifically adapted to cover larger areas of turf and save precious time normally spent on frequent re-fuelling. Built for continual hard work, the engine comes with a replaceable oil filter that will allow changes to be made quickly and easily on site. Time is also saved by the inclusion of Toro’s blade brake clutch (BBC) system, which enables the user to stop the cutter-blade whilst keeping the engine running, saving on engine restarts. Moreover, starting the machine is made simple and effortless through the inclusion of traditional recoil start.

    So that you can fulfil clients’ needs fully, the 22188TE comes with an easy to use four-point height of cut adjustor, delivering a quality cut at heights between 25mm and 114mm. Furthermore, this machine also comes with the option to upgrade its already wide range of capabilities; on request, the 22188TE can also include side discharge functionality, enabling the mower to cut grass that most other models cannot.

    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.
