In the last issue we covered the true cost of ownership of electric turfcare machinery and while there was a way to calculate the figures, it needed to be done manually.

Now, thanks to Toro, there’s a way to compare operating expenses of alternative energy powered models in seconds.

Analysing costs including recommended maintenance (labour and parts) as defined in respective service manuals in addition to estimated respective fuel/electric power consumption, gives an accurate idea of savings choosing a sustainable machine can bring.

We ran a battery-powered ride-on and pedestrian mower and a hybrid ride-on through the cost calculator and have the results here.

With a Toro Reelmaster 5010-H hybrid fairway mower the cost savings over five years is £6,690.

    As you can see here, the total savings for the Reelmaster 5010-H fairway mower over five years are in the thousands and that more than balances out the discrepancy of buying hybrid in the first place.
