Toro once again supported the annual Renewal & Remembrance landscaping event that took place July 16 at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
Toro, along with its longtime distributor partner, Turf Equipment and Supply Company, based in Jessup, Md., provided a fleet of Toro stand-on aerators and volunteers to help beautify the cemetery grounds. This year marked the 22nd annual Renewal & Remembrance landscaping event, which is organized by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP).
“It’s an honor to be a part of this process each year,” explained Mike Reynolds, territory manager for Turf Equipment and Supply Company. “Our team is proud to volunteer its services on this special day to honor the men and women who have given so much for our country. Just being at Arlington Cemetery is a very awe-inspiring experience.”
The 30-inch Toro stand-on aerators provided for the event are designed for high productivity and are compact enough to go almost anywhere. With zero-turn maneuverability, variable speed and reversible traction drive, they can easily get into, and out of, tight areas, making them ideal for this large task.
In addition, Toro’s newest line of stand-on aerators made an appearance at the event for the first time. Designed with maneuverability in mind, the 24-inch stand-on aerators are both simple to operate and extremely efficient. They’re compatible with Toro’s all-new spreader attachment, so operators can pull plugs and overseed with precision on a single machine.
“We believe our support for this event is just one small way we can help memorialize those who made the ultimate sacrifice – and hopefully bring some solace and comfort to the families and friends who are visiting their loved ones at Arlington National Cemetery,” added Chris Vogtman, marketing manager at Toro. “On behalf of everyone at Toro, we’re humbled by the opportunity to honor the service men and women who have served our country.”
