Instead of providing reels, bearings, seals and spacers separately, Toro and its channel partners will be providing Reels+ and EdgeSeries Reels+ in a complete assembly, reducing the time required for technicians to install new replacement reels in Toro cutting units. With the bearings already pressed on with required low-drag flock seals and spacers, customers can save approximately 15 to 20 minutes of installation time per reel. Additionally, the overall cost to the customer is lower because additional bearings, seals and spacers are sold at a discount from the individual part retail price for each component. Integrating the reels and components eliminates the guesswork for technicians and ensures the recommended bearings are utilized, which can contribute to the overall longevity of the cutting unit. Reels+ and EdgeSeries Reels+ are being phased in during 2018.
