TOP LINE THINKING Now you can get the turf-friendly, light footprint you need to maintain tour-quality fairways and green surrounds, without resorting to smaller, less productive mowers. The Toro ® Reelmaster ® 3550-D is not only the industry's lightest fairway mower, it's 15-20% lighter than comparably equipped machines. In addition, its fve 18-inch wide cutting units provide exceptional ground-following capabilities for an outstanding after-cut appearance, even on undulating fairways. REAL WORLD THINKING We understand the challenges you face every day. That's why we make innovative equipment that delivers the best overall course conditions combined with a lower cost of ownership over time. Then we back every product we build with our industry-leading support network. No one delivers more value than Toro. It's simple Turfonomics. BOTTOM LINE THINKING The Reelmaster 3550-D is light in weight, but heavy in cost-saving productivity. Compared to a standard triplex greens mower, it covers nearly twice as much ground (40% wider and 40% faster) without giving up the quality-of-cut you expect. Plus it's 10-20% more fuel-effcient than competitive models. That means more than just reduced fuel costs. It also means you can carry less fuel compared to other machines. Less fuel means less weight, and less weight means less stress on your turf. About Turfonomics Learn more at: 18-inch versions of DPA fairway cutting units handle fairway undulations The challenge today isn't simply to maintain a beautiful golf course. It's to maintain it on a budget. To succeed, you need to work smarter, more effciently and more economically than ever before. That's why Toro equipment is engineered to give you not only great results, but also a lower cost of ownership over time. With Toro, beauty and fnancial sustainability don't have to be opposites. It's simple Turfonomics. "Quality of cut, grooming ability, speed and very operator-friendly controls are just a few of the features that raise this unit 'off the charts'. " Steven P.
