First-of-its-kind mower can be stored upright
 
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (October 23, 2013) - If you've been wishing for more storage space in your cramped or crowded garage, Toro is about to make your wish come true. The new Toro® Recycler® mower with SmartStow™ feature can be stored vertically, reducing the storage footprint of your mower by up to 70%.
 
This breakthrough, space-saving mower is possible thanks to Mow 'N' Stow™ technology by Briggs & Stratton®. With the Mow 'N' Stow™ engine, there are no concerns about leaking gas or oil when you tip the mower upright. This patented technology features improved seals and gaskets, a unique fuel tank design and a “no-weep” carburetor. All of these features combine to allow for vertical storage, so your mower takes up less space.
 
Pairing the Mow 'N' Stow engine with a durable, high-quality mulching mower makes it a great choice for any homeowner. This mower not only saves space, it also saves you time when you mow. The Recycler mower with SmartStow features Toro's large, 22-inch deck with Recycler mowing technology. Recycler mowers cut and recut the grass into a fine mulch, then force the clippings deep into the turf. The result is a healthy, lush lawn with a just-bagged look.
 
When you really need to bag your clippings, a high-capacity bag means you won't stop as often to empty. The Recycler with SmartStow also features side-discharge capabilities. And since tipping the mower upright is no problem, you'll have easier access to the deck and blade for cleaning and maintenance, ensuring your mower will always deliver a quality cut.
 
The 11-inch rear high-wheel design makes the Recycler with SmartStow easy to handle, even in uneven terrain. A variable speed self-propel system with front wheel drive allows for better maneuverability.
 
This machine is powered by a 7.25 ft-lbs. gross torque* engine and is backed by Toro's top guarantees, so you know you can count on the Recycler with SmartStow for years to come. It features Toro's three-year Guaranteed-to-Start promise: If your mower doesn't start on one or two pulls, Toro will fix it for free. A two-year full coverage warranty keeps you covered if anything goes wrong, under normal use and maintenance. See your retailer for full warranty details.
