This premium-grade hover-mower from Toro is the top machine in the HoverPro range, and as such is suitable for tough landscaping applications on the most challenging terrain.
Making it tick is a powerful and ultra-dependable GCV160 engine; a 160cc four-stroke power-pack that makes the most of Honda’s latest advancements in overhead-cam technology, thereby ensuring quiet, low-vibration operation; reduced fuel-costs; and emission-compliance.
Automatic mechanical decompression means only a light pull on the starter-cord is need for ignition; while Honda’s Dura-Lube ensures all the key engine parts are protected from premature wear.
The Toro HoverPro 550 Petrol Hover Lawn Mower has been equipped with a super-sharp 53cm metal-bar blade (the widest in the range), so will deliver a clean, consistent cut, no matter what the grass-conditions. The blade repeatedly chops cut grass as it’s held under the mower-deck for a pleasingly neat finish and natural nourishment of the turf.
Built to cope with the rigours of day-in, day-out professional use, the HoverPro 550 is fitted with strong and durable tubular-steel handlebars and is constructed around an impact- and rust-resistant injection-moulded ABS deck.
Thanks to its lightweight build (just 19kg) and ergonomic handle-design, this top-of-the-range model is a pleasure to work with and can be used for long periods without much effort expended by the user.
A three-stage cutting-height (18 – 30mm) makes it possible to manage changing grass-conditions; while an Operator Presence Control (or ‘deadman’s handle’) works to eliminate any possibility of accidental injury.
