Traction-PlusTM

Traction-PlusTM

Traction-PlusTM automatically takes 30% of the weight off the cutting unit for more floatation, and puts it on the traction wheels. Weight transfer gradually increases up to 50% when climbing or cutting hillsides for a surefooted performance.


Speedy Transport


Speedy Transport

For quick job to job transport, simply raise the outboard cutting decks. They automatically rotate rearward, then lower for clear side and rear views. Travel safely at transport speeds up to 20 mph. The swept back design of the Groundsmaster 580-D transfers the cutting unit weight to the rear of the machine for a well-balanced, smooth transport drive.


Versatility

Versatility

Accessories for added value and versatility: cab with ROPS, canopy, road light kit, air conditioner, 2-stage snowthrower, road package kit, speed control, and leaf mulcher kit.


Breakaway Decks


Breakaway Decks

Should the operator misjudge distance, the outboard cutting unit will pivot away from the object that's been hit on a rotating push arm. To reset, simply raise the cutting unit.


Operator Friendly Design


Operator Friendly Design

The Groundsmaster 580-D is ergonomically designed for comfort and easy operation. The deluxe seat and the patented steering column adjust to let you customize your work environment and reduce fatigue. Plenty of space at the operator's station paired with easy-to-read controls also increase comfort. The 580-D uses multiple disc brakes, just like the ones on your car or truck, for reliable high-performance braking. Also, the foot controls are very similar to automotive controls - with gas and brake pedals in proximity - making it much more user friendly to operators.


4-Wheel Drive Option

4-Wheel Drive Option

Front traction works in parallel with two speed single high torque hydraulic rear wheel motors to provide 4- wheel drive traction.


Proven Durability

Proven Durability

The Groundsmaster 580-D has proven itself to be a rugged, durable performer since its introduction in 1989. Heavy duty welded steel decks and frames provide extra durability and long life. The traction unit uses variable axial two-speed piston motors to drive planetary gear final drives. The planetary system gears down the load on the wheel motors resulting in lower pressures, lower temperatures, higher efficiency and longer life.


Serviceability Ease

Serviceability Ease

The engine, transmission, and cooling system can be easily reached by snapping off a few panels and removing shrouds. The deck spindles can be greased without having to remove deck covers. Quickly access the deck belt areas and belt spindles by removing the easy-off covers. Also, the Triflex cutting unit flips up for convenient servicing. The 580-D comes standard with Automated Control Electronics. An electronic diagnostics system increases reliability, functionality, and serviceability. The hand-held diagnostic tool aids service technicians in pinpointing problems. Rather than guessing the location of trouble spots, or spending unproductive time searching for problems, this tool allows the service technician to easily determine causes.


Precision Maneuverability

Precision Maneuverability

The remarkable agility of the Groundsmaster 580-D means you can trim less than an 18" circle around trees, around a 90 degree corner, or turn back 180 degrees with no uncut grass remaining. Individual dual wheel brakes assist to provide smooth control with any turn. A Sunstrand hydrostatic pump allows quick, smooth changes in speed and direction.


Mega Productivity



Mega Productivity

This agile performer mows up to 14-1/2 acres per hour with its three independent rear discharge cutting units. Adjust cutting widths from 8-1/2' to 16' on the fly. Cut with one, two, or three decks engaged depending on the situation.


Tough Spindle Assembly


Tough Spindle Assembly

The industry's toughest spindle assembly are tested to take a beating that would destroy most spindle assemblies. A cast iron housing with a massive 9-3/8 inch (23.8 cm) diameter base absorbs impacts and distributes the load across the robust deck shell. Plus, Tomkin tapered roller bearings last up to six times longer than ball bearings.


Snowthrower

Snowthrower

The snowthrower with adjustable skids includes electric chute rotation and replaceable scraper blades.


A/C Mounting Kit

Diagnostic Tool


Diagnostic Tool

Working with the Automated Control Electronics system, the handheld diagnostic tool allows service technicians to quickly pinpoint problems.

These Toro advantages increase productivity by saving countless hours of troubleshooting and maintenance.
