Combining powerful performance with rugged build-quality and superior reliability, the attractively-priced Toro HoverPro 400 will prove a fantastic purchase for the more discerning domestic gardener.
Hover-mowers float on an air-cushion and are inherently lightweight, so they can be used on the sort banks, ditches and verges that would defeat a wheeled machine.
The Toro HoverPro 400 weighs a mere 12.5kg and features Toro’s industry-leading 14” high-lift impellor; a combination that makes it one of the most effortlessly manoeuvrable models of its type available.
Powering it is a high-performance 57cc mini four-stroke engine from Honda – the GXV57. Thanks to their advanced overhead-valve configuration, these ultra-dependable power-units are cheap to run; smooth and quiet in operation; and deliver consistent amounts of torque across the rev-band.
Strong and durable, the Toro HoverPro 400 Petrol Hover Lawn Mower is built around a lightweight ABS polymer deck that will never rust and which will flex slightly rather than break under impact. Robust tubular-steel handlebars contribute further to longevity.
This model employs Toro’s Nylon Wire cutting-system, which provides the sort of cutting-performance you’d get from a metal-blade, but with none of the weight- or maintenance-issues.
The cutting-height can be set to any of three positions between 18 and 30mm to suit both the grass-conditions and your preferred finish.
Should you need to tackle longer grass, you can fit the optional Hi-Rise kit.
