Toro recently introduced a 36-inch power broom, a powerful rotary broom developed for commercial landscape contractor to use all year round. The Toro Power Broom boasts durable construction while delivering precise control to its operator. From snow and debris removal to power raking, this versatile rotary broom will make a productive addition to landscape contractors’ fleets all 4 seasons.
“Landscape contractors are always looking for ways to reduce labor costs and improve efficiencies on the job,” said Ross Hawley, marketing manager for Toro. “The Toro Power Broom was designed specifically to address those needs by reducing the time it traditionally takes to remove debris and snow from sidewalks and parking lots. Also, since the power broom can be used in other turf-related applications, it provides contractors with an extremely versatile addition to their equipment fleet.”
The Toro Power Broom is equipped with a powerful Kohler 208-cc Command Pro multi-season engine that delivers 200 rpm to the broom head. The variable-speed, shift on-the-fly transmission has 6 forward and 2 reverse positions, making it easy to set the appropriate speed for the job.
This unit also features patented power steering that reduces operator fatigue. The wheels can be disengaged independently or simultaneously with trigger controls to make turning, reversing and steering easy. With controls similar to many Toro snow throwers, the rotary broom has independent control levers for drive and boom engagement and a thumb-operated broom angle adjustment that can be positioned up-to-20 degrees left or right of center.
Making adjustments is easy with Toro’s robust, positive pin-type height adjustments that can be adjusted at 1/8-inch increments. The unit comes configured with snow and concrete bristles, but it can easily be configured for turf bristles. Also, with reinforced handle bars, heavy-duty gear box and integrated tie-down points for easy trailering, the power broom delivers the durability contractors expect from Toro.
The Toro Power Broom is available with several accessories, including a tire chain kit, snow cab, turf caster kit, dirt deflectors, concrete/snow bristle discs, turf bristle discs, light kit and a debris box.
