Toro has announced a number of enhancements to the Toro ProStripe 560 walk-behind mower and striping unit. Key enhancements include a commercial-grade Kawasaki four-cycle engine, the incorporation of a trim side for trimming around edges, and a larger capacity 0.45-gallon fuel tank for longer mowing sessions.

Productivity is maximized with additional enhancements to the ProStripe 560, such as the high-capacity 21-gallon bagger, which optimizes airflow and collection capability. Other features include a ribbed, two-piece roller, which significantly improves maneuverability and minimizes turf marking when compared to single-piece roller configurations, and a groomer brush attachment that can be mounted to the front of the unit to promote healthier turf and a cleaner cut by reducing lateral blade growth and loosening surface debris.

The ProStripe 560 provides excellent striping and tracking performance thanks to the aerospace-influenced blade design, which maximizes collection capabilities while optimizing aftercut appearance, according to Toro.

Additionally, the integrated MatchCut functionality is beneficial when needing to mow at a consistent height using multiple machines across the same area. The MatchCut feature allows for easy adjustment between seven cutting heights, ranging from 0.5 inches to 2.6 inches in 0.29-inch increments and allows fine-tuning of the cutting height as well.
