The Toro 20897. Part of the super bagger series from Toro. Packed with loads of features and saving you time, thanks to it's fantastic grass collecting system. Self Propelled with automatc drive, 3in1, mulch, blade break clutch, Honda engine, aluminium deck, 53cm/21" cut and a long warranty!!!
Self-propelled with automatic drive, and driven by a Honda GCV-160 overhead cam engine, quieter, more lightweight and more easy to start than most equitable engines with an easy-pull recoil, as well as producing fewer emissions than conventional side valve engines, this lawn mower offers the operator plenty of power and choice when it comes to cutting in different conditions.
The Toro 20897 Aluminium Deck Super Bagger has a 53cm/ 21" cutting width, so the mower is more than suitable for larger lawns and it offers a three-in-one cutting functionality of cut and collect, mulch or side discharge.
Cutting heights can be altered easily with four levers, one on each wheel. There is a choice of heights in seven positions between 32mm and 180mm.
A special safety switch that means you cannot start the mower unless either the mulch plug is inserted or the grass-collecting bag is firmly in place.
This is enhanced and supported by the patented cutting system, where the specially designed blade and chamber, with its domed shape, creates perfect airflow that in turn produces great collection, and reducing clumps by lifting cuttings and depositing them in the large, 64.3 litre capacity grass collector. The larger than usual grass channel and the shape of the cutting chamber also ensures more grass travels into the bag, so you spend less time emptying
The rear discharge channel is much larger than usual and this makes collection even more efficient, with a much-reduced chance of blockages. The collecting bag is very easy to remove and attach, with EZ lift, another great feature.
The same airflow makes mulching easy and efficient, keeping clippings moving within reach of the patented blade so it can cut and re-cut, finally dropping the clippings deep into the lawn where they decompose and become fertiliser, feeding the grass and producing healthy looking, lush growth.
There is also the option of using the side-discharge, perfect for cutting taller grass or when conditions are not right for bagging or mulching. You can convert from one function to another very easily, no need for tools.
The drive system on the 20897 Aluminium Deck Super Bagger Lawn Mower is a great innovation, an intelligent ADS, (Automatic Driving System) responds to your speed and continually matches it. This means you can tackle inclines at your own speed, deal with tricky patches of grass slower or speed up when wish.
A Blade Brake Clutch (BBC) is installed as standard. This halts the cutting blade whilst allowing the engine to keep running so the operator can, for example, empty the grass collector without turning the engine off or walk the mower to another part of the garden across concrete or paths with no problems.
A tough and rust resistant aluminium deck provides both strength and durability to the mower.
The handles fold easily and a quick stow lever can be operated by your foot, to facilitate easy storage and transport.
The 20897 comes with a full five-year manufacturers warranty and a five-year ‘start with in two pulls' warranty (subject to annual service).
