Toro and fine turf machinery distributor Lely Turfcare is hitting the road again in August 2016 with its highly popular Toro on Tour events.

Bringing the brand’s latest machinery launches and expertise right to customers’ doors the length and breadth of the country, the tour is the ideal opportunity to see firsthand all the latest and most popular Toro machines.

Headlining this year’s road trip is the new Toro Workman GTX. Visitors can jump into the seat and demo the latest turf and grounds crossover utility vehicle and see for themselves the features that make it the most versatile, practical and comfortable in its class, as well as trialing its stable mate the Workman MDX-D.

Joining the line-up is the Reelmaster 5010-H hybrid fairway mower, the lightweight Reelmaster 3550 and two new additions to the popular Reelmaster range – the 3555-D and 3575-D.

Whether you opt for five cutting units or seven, one thing guaranteed with these two new models is the same cutting quality expected from the formidable 3550-D but with an even lighter footprint. And that makes them the new lightest fairway mowers on the market, weighing approximately 500lbs less than comparable four-wheel Toro mowers.

Organised by Lely Turfcare and held in partnership with its nationwide dealer network at key customer venues across the UK, these events are always a big draw for greenkeepers and course managers, whether as an existing Toro user or those interested in learning about what’s new to market.

Jeff Anguige, Lely Turfcare national sales manager, says the event is a great opportunity to ‘talk Toro’. “These roadshows are a fantastic way for dealers and customers to get ‘hands-on’ with latest machines, network with industry peers and hear about what’s going on from experts in the field. As well as top tips on Toro operating techniques, there’s the opportunity to demo machines such as the Workman GTX, which many may not have seen since its showcase at BTME.”

There is always limited availability so any greenkeepers or course managers keen to come along should contact their local Toro dealer or area sales manager to book a place, or register their interest online at
