For this September only Lely Turfcare is offering a 10 percent discount across the entire Toro cylinder range. All Toro cylinder mowers, from the heavy duty LT3340 to the accessible CT2240 compact triple, can be given a new lease of life with cost effective replacement cylinders.
To determine whether your mower needs regrinding or a replacement cylinder, put it to the paper test. Wearing the correct safety wear place a piece of paper 90 degrees between the cylinder and the bottom blade and turning the cylinder by hand to see if they are working to the best of their ability. If this results in anything less than a precise clean-cut piece, the cylinder may need regrinding or replacing. It is also possible to check the service life of a cylinder by measuring the diameter to see if it is still within specification against the manufacturer reference chart.
Inevitably, cylinders will lose their edge retention after a season or two. Thereafter mowing with blunt blades not only produces a deteriorated quality of cut but can also cause tip dieback, a condition that turns the plant leaf brown and puts it at risk of disease. Substituting worn cylinders for new ones means sharper blades and a sharper cut leaving a healthier sward, ideal for those working their machines hard up against tight deadlines and in tough cutting conditions.
Choosing genuine Toro cylinders guarantees a perfect fit matching the exact engineering specifications of Toro machinery and equipment. Toro’s cylinder range can always be relied on to deliver an effective and consistent cut, and with less adjustments downtime is reduced, ensuring jobs are completed on time.
Whether operators choose a 4, 6, 8 or 10-blade cylinder to replace or upgrade old ones, Toro cylinders don’t just make tall grass short like many ‘will-fit’ inferior quality parts, they guarantee a more efficient cut and reduce the risk of damage to the machine.
To put it bluntly, buying cheaper ‘will-fit’ replacement parts is not cost-effective in the long term. Investing in new, long-lasting Toro cylinders saves both time and money as maintenance is simplified, and labour and ownership costs are reduced. Plus, with ten percent off all genuine Toro cylinders from 01 September to 30 September, these performance parts are great value.
