Commercial Lawn Mowers, ZTR, Stand-On, and Walk-Behind. Toro zero turn lawn mowers

Toro zero-turn mowers by model

Toro began in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1914 by producing engines for the Bull Tractor Company. After branching out into steam engines during World War I, Toro began a FOCUS on golf course and lawn maintenance in the 1920s. In 1986, Toro purchased lawn tractor manufacturer Wheel Horse, acquiring their full line of lawn and garden tractors, plus riding lawn mowers. In the 2000s, Toro focused production on commercial equipment, dropping residential lawn and garden tractors. In 2007, Toro began selling a re-branded line of tractors built by MTD.

Toro Revolution Electric Battery-Powered Zero Turn Lawn Mowers

commercial, lawn, mowers, stand-on

The Toro Revolution Battery-Powered Zero Turn Lawn Mowers include three primary models. They include the Toro Grandstand Revolution stand-on mower, the Z Master Revolution zero-turn, and the 60V Toro HD 21 Revolution push mower. These mowers fall squarely on the commercial business side of the industry with performance, run-time, and pricing to match.

What Toro Revolution Electric Mowers Offer

Increasingly, local municipalities continue to pass laws mandating OPE equipment perform with lower noise emissions. These municipal noise restrictions have forced many commercial landscapers and lawn care professionals to consider battery-powered products for their business—if not in whole, then in part.

Toro Revolution Series electric mowers deliver on the all-day runtime needed in order to achieve commercial-level operation and expectations. Their extra-large batteries and commercial-level decks ensure that professionals have another option when looking to supplement or switch over to electric.

Toro Revolution Mower Technology

We think Toro did a few really great things with the Revolution Series electric mowers. For one, they minimized components through the use of brushless motors and removing the need for hydrostatic wheel controls. That should translate into less maintenance compared to a gasoline engine and standard transmission. Next, they mounted the battery packs as low as possible on these mowers to drop the center of gravity and help them perform more confidently on all manner of lawns—including hilly terrain.

The battery packs of the HyperCell Power System used in the Grandstand mower, for example, feature 135 cells per pack (they appear to be 21700 cells). Each pack stores and delivers roughly 2337.5Wh of energy. Multiply that by the 8 battery packs that fit within the Toro Grandstand zero-turn mower, and you have somewhere around 18.7 kilowatt-hours of available power! That’s roughly the equivalent of 18 STIHL AR 3000 backpack batteries and should give you all-day mowing capability unless you only mow uphill.

commercial, lawn, mowers, stand-on

It goes without saying that the Toro Revolution Series mowers have incredibly robust battery systems. In fact, here’s how some of the key features compare:

commercial, lawn, mowers, stand-on

The controls on the Z Master Revolution include hard buttons—eliminating issues with trying to use touch controls while wearing gloves. We love this and think all mowers should get away from touchscreen interfaces. They have no place on mowers. Using the Horizon interface, you can control blade tip speed and maximum drive speed. Toro also lets you see the remaining battery charge and other helpful info.

commercial, lawn, mowers, stand-on

An adjustable deck rake gives you a pro feature that also helps increase runtime by letting more grass clippings exit the rear of the deck while mulching. You can also adjust the rake to optimize cutting performance.

Between the battery and brushless motors on this electric mower, Toro claims you get the equivalent of a 38hp engine. That should be enough to tackle even overgrown grass, though regular maintenance cuts will yield you the longest overall run times.

commercial, lawn, mowers, stand-on

With three available models, expect to pay 35,000 for the 48-inch model and even more for the 52-inch, 60-inch, and premium 60-inch model with MyRide suspension.


Toro Grandstand Revolution Stand-on Mower

The Toro Grandstand Revolution Stand-on Mower isn’t the first battery-powered stand-on in the market. It does, however, offer some unique features worth looking into. Toro built this electric stand-on mower on the same commercial platform as their gas-powered GrandStand series.

commercial, lawn, mowers, stand-on

The mowers feature the same strong I-beam front end and 7-gauge steel deck with bullnose bumper.

commercial, lawn, mowers, stand-on

Like the Z Master, the GrandStand Revolution lets you adjust the deck rake to compensate for various mowing conditions. Instead of the 10 batteries of the Z Master, this machine uses 8 Toro HyperCell batteries totaling 18.7 kWh of power. It delivers up to 7 hours or more of runtime with a maximum speed of 10 mph.

commercial, lawn, mowers, stand-on


Final Thoughts

Clearly, these electric mowers from Toro offer professional quality. They also, however, offer themselves at a professional-level price. Starting around 35,000, the Toro Z Master and Grandstand Revolution mowers aren’t for the faint of wallet. While you can certainly make the case for an eventual ROI, our calculations put that around 4-5 years. That corresponds to the time when you may need a replacement battery. Unfortunately, the battery can make up half the price of the original mower.

We can’t help but think the future of commercial battery-powered lawn mowers will fall to the leasing market. It makes too much sense and eliminates the issue of long-term ROI based on uncertainties like ongoing run-time and battery replacement.

Preferred Type of Controls

The first choice you have to make when buying a zero-turn mower is what kind of controls you want. The lap bar is the most common, but you can also choose a steering wheel or joystick. It all depends on your personal preference.

Deck size refers to the cutting area that your equipment can handle. The goal is to try to strike a balance. The deck size should be large enough to maximize productivity, but small enough for the machine to fit where it needs to go.

  • Up to one acre of land: 42” cutting deck.
  • Up to two acres of land: 42” to 46” cutting deck.
  • Up to three acres of land: 46” to 50” cutting deck.
  • Commercial jobs: 50” and above.

These are just a few of the considerations to make when buying a zero-turn mower. If you still have questions, reach out to our friendly staff at Four Brothers Outdoor Power.
