. minute read

Two new Toro electric machines, two Reesink stands and the latest offering and customer favourites across all Reesink brands at SALTEX.


We’ve talked about the first all-electric groundscare mower on pages 2 and 3, but that’s not all that’s electric and debuting from Toro at SALTEX. Now, for the first time, there’s a utility vehicle with enough power for tougher groundscare jobs. The Toro Workman MDX Lithium is the battery powered version of the customer favourite diesel mid-sized utility vehicle.

Visitors to SALTEX will also be able to see the latest offering from all four of Reesink’s divisions across two stands hosting an array of customer favourites.

The Workman MDX Lithium delivers the same payload, trailer towing capacity and comfort the original Workman MDX is known for – but in a new and sustainable package. The proprietary SRQ (Superior Ride Quality) suspension creates a smooth ride, the onboard charging is ready to be connected to any standard 120-volt power outlet anytime, anywhere, and as standard is an automotive-grade rack-and-pinion steering system for more control.

Toro Workman MDX Lithium is a crucial launch for the industry, bringing electric power to utility work for the groundscare industry.

Also making an appearance will be Toro’s Groundsmaster 4000-D rotary mower continuing to lead the way in complying with emissions regulations for non-road vehicles, and the Toro LT-F3000 flail mower which combines superior productivity with lower operating costs, easy servicing and maximum usability.

With its excellent trimming capability and an ability to mow a zero inch uncut circle, the efficient Groundsmaster 4000-D will be on stand K080.

Returning this year to SALTEX is the Toro Workman UTX. Boasting the highest payload in its class the straight-forward, the no-nonsense 4×4 powerhouse is built to stand up to the toughest terrains without compromising performance.

Finishing off the line-up is the ultimate triple flail mower, Toro’s LT-F3000. Designed for a more modest budget, with its optional cylinder attachment delivering superior productivity, lower operating costs, easy servicing and maximum usability.

Reesink Hydro-Scapes – stand K080

From Reesink Hydro-Scapes will be a selection of irrigation and water aeration solutions from Toro Irrigation and Otterbine. See first-hand featured controllers, sprinklers and soil sensors – including the latest Toro Lynx Central Control system, Infinity and Flex series sprinklers as well as the Concept 3 Fractional series of aerators from Otterbine, and more.

Barton-on-Sea Golf Club has a new Toro Lynx Central Control System and Infinity and B Series sprinklers, all of which will be at SALTEX.

Reesink e-Vehicles – stand A040

Reesink is back once more with the electric solution to transporting both people and cargo around grounds, courses, stadiums and leisure venues. The STAR Capella Work Machine with a caged body will appear alongside the newest addition in the STAR line-up – the STAR AK48-2 Long with door option. This two-seat utility vehicle offers multiple cargo configurations and brings the next generation of customer-focused features.

STAR’s AK48-2 Long flexible carry-all with 7 HP AC electric drive motor and 450 amp programmable speed controller will be at SALTEX.

Also on stand and ready to provide a new, effective and fun method of transport for customer’s guests and visitors is the impressive KAASPEED scooter, configured with its shopping tray option.

Reesink Agriculture – stand A040

Providing powerful performance in a compact and easily-manoeuvrable package is the award-winning Farmtrac FT25G electric compact tractor that has impressed the industry’s electric vehicles and technology enthusiasts and the customer favourite FT26H with ROPS. Both are ideal for smallholders, equestrian centres and landscapers looking for quieter eco-friendlier alternatives and anyone likely to work in tight spaces, as the compact machines with narrow bodies move through everyday tasks with ease and efficiency.

We’re delighted to introduce the latest electric technology to groundscare to visitors at SALTEX. Battery power is an integral part of the industry’s future, and these are two crucial launches from Toro for the market.
