Toro Awarded Patents On Walk Greensmower, Fairway Cutting Unit
The Toro Company announces the recent award of two patents by the United States Patent Office for its innovations on the Toro Greensmaster Flex 21 and the Toro Reelmaster cutting units.
The Flex 21 patent covers the integration of a single control handle for operating both the traction and cutting unit. This integrated design allows for simpler operation of walk greensmowers because all controls are easily accessible from the normal operator position.
In addition, Toro enhanced its Reelmaster cutting units with a newly patented roller brush assembly. These optional belt-driven rollers enhance clipping dispersion especially in wet, dewey conditions for an improved after-cut appearance.
These newly patented products are available to the golf course market today. The above summaries of the Toro patents are not intended to formally describe or limit the patents' claim coverage.
