Toro’s all-new 28-inch hydro drive brush cutter is a commercial-grade, self-propelled walk-behind model for leveling brush, tall weeds, saplings, small trees, and heavy vegetation.

It can handle nearly any brush up to six feet tall and most saplings up to two inches in diameter. Featuring a pivoting deck, the hydro drive brush cutter delivers a 3 ¾-inch height-of-cut.

A two-step blade engagement coupled with a parking brake ensures the brush cutter is safe. Additionally, the operator can maneuver the machine in both forward and reverse with one hand. The standard 6-inch, two-ply sealant-filled aggressive tread tires provide traction for brush removal projects on slopes or in ditches and culverts.

The unit features a high-strength steel deck with large diameter pulleys that optimize the longevity of the belts. Additionally, the unique blade design reduces impact to the unit while a spindle shaft saddle prevents the blade bolt from loosening during normal operation.

The brush cutter will begin shipping in early 2017.
