Toro takes a machine that won over UK greenkeepers and adds even more innovative features to the time-tested classic. The ProCore 648s picks up where its predecessor, the ProCore 648, left off. The s means superior – and superior it is.
The Toro ProCore line is legendary because of its ability to cover significant amounts of ground in less time, and with a 122cm aeration swath and the ability to aerate 18 greens in seven hours, the ProCore 648s is the most efficient pedestrian aerator on the market.
Building on from the machine that changed the way you aerate, the ProCore 648s has become the gold standard of greens aeration. The new and improved handle design allows for single-handed operation with easy access to primary controls. Operators can now keep their focus forward with less fatigue and more confident precision.
It does everything greenkeepers loved about the ProCore 648 – provides a clean, even finish with no crushed cores, operates on fine turf with the absolute minimum of disturbance and gets surfaces back into play quickly, all while introducing 10 new patents that make it even better.

The machine’s InfoCentre is now able to set and save true tine and hole spacing with a broader range of 5mm (0.25 inches) for the ultimate control and the onboard controller allows operators to easily target where they want the coring head to drop and raise, improving after aeration turf condition. On top of this, RotaLink delivers superior hole quality while TrueCore ground-following system ensures depth consistency in undulations.
Among the new features is also electronic drive control which allows for more consistent hole spacing on slopes, the ability to easily increase speeds on turnarounds, and a tighter turn radius to name a few. Improved performance and exciting innovation– that’s what makes the ProCore 648s the new superior choice.
