It’s 7 a.m. The grass is long and wet. And you’ve got five more properties to mow after this one. At times like these, you don’t want a struggle. You need power. Toro’s Professional 7000 Series gives you the torque to take on extreme mowing conditions that would max out a conventional petrol-powered mower. Better yet, it runs on diesel, so you get more power with less fuel than a comparable petrol engine.

Exclusive TURBO FORCE Deck

High-capacity TURBO FORCE decks deliver unsurpassed strength, a superior cut, and increased productivity in extreme mowing conditions. Equipped with a patented adjustable baffle, TURBO FORCE decks can be fine-tuned in order to conquer changing turf conditions.

7-Gauge, High-Strength Steel

The TURBO FORCE deck is constructed of 7-gauge, high-strength steel which is 33% thicker and 32% higher in yield strength than ordinary 10-gauge commercial steel used in 7/10 decks. The combined effect is 75% stronger, so it easily handles the most demanding conditions and resists damage from impacts and abrasion.

A Flat Crisp Cut with Precision Blades

6.35 mm thick precision blades resist flexing to provide a flat, crisp cut. High-strength, heat-treated alloy steel survives impacts and provides resistance to the rapid wear commonly associated with abrasive conditions. Options include Recycler® and Atomic® mulching blades, medium sail Bahai blades, and low sail sand blades.

High-performance Discharge Chute

High performance 8 mm rubber discharge chute allows for close trimming without damaging chute or landscape structures. Patented design provides excptional clipping dispersion.

Smarter design in a bull-nose bumper.

7-gauge bull-nose bumper not only protects against frontal impacts, but also contains an integral underskirt to minimise blowout of debris and dust. The bottom, leading edge of the deck is raised 6.35 mm, allowing grass to stand more upright when entering the cutting chamber, ensuring a level cut. Leaf “ploughing” during spring and fall clean-up also is significantly reduced.

Patented Adjustable Baffle

Allows operator to achieve maximum cutting performance by fine-tuning deck to conquer changing conditions, unique job sites or different times of the season. In extreme conditions, the baffle can be opened in order to conserve power and achieve faster mowing speeds. In less demanding conditions, the baffle can be closed to yield micro-sized particles and maximise discharge velocity.

Powerful Engines

The Kubota 17.15 kW (23 hp) liquid-cooled diesel engines are geared for high torque while also delivering fast 11.2 mph ground speeds. The powerful, yet fuel-efficient engines come in a compact package that is exceptionally well balanced for low vibration. The liquid-cooled system ensures cleaner combustion and extended engine life.

Folding Rollover Protection System ROPS

A Rollover Protection System (ROPS), complete with seat belt, comes standard for operator protection in the case of accidental rollovers and tipovers. In situations where sufficient vertical clearance is not available, such as loading on an enclosed trailer, the ROPS can be temporarily unlocked and folded down.
