Growing up I had an uncle that worked doing some accounting and auditing for Toro in the Twin Cities, and he said they were a good company and swore by all of their power tools that he owned. I never gave it much consideration until I got into the turf/golf course industry.
I’m still a “young buck” in the golf industry. While in college and on internships, I didn’t have the opportunity to run much Toro equipment. I took my first head superintendent job 5 years ago and inherited an almost new Greensmaster 3150Q greens mower and a 5-year old Reelmaster 5200D fairway mower. These two mowers were so much nicer to run than similar competitor models I’d run in the past. I loved how quiet the 3150Q was and how easy both models were to work on and adjust. Daily set up was night and day different from what I had worked on before. I liked the 3150Q so much that when it came time to replace our aging competitor tee mower this past year, I bought another 3150Q to replace it.
As money allows I’m gradually converting every piece of equipment in my collection to Toro. I loved using Toro equipment at work so much I convinced my dad to buy a Toro push mower for his personal use. Instantly had another happy customer. Going out on the course and running my Toro equipment is my favorite part of my job. I look forward to buying more Toro equipment for both work and personal use in the future.
