Toro Introduces New Lithium Ion 24-volt Max Yard Tools

 Toro Max String Trimmer 

Putting the finishing touches on your yard is easier and more eco-friendly with Toro’s new cordless 24-volt string trimmers, hedge trimmers and sweepers. Thanks to lithium-ion battery technology, there is plenty of power to get the job done quickly.

Toro’s lithium ion battery-powered tools free you from the hassles of gas and oil, yet still provide you with the performance you need. Their super-charged, interchangeable batteries provide up to twice the power per weight as compared to a traditional nickel-cadmium battery. They also allow for longer run time with low self-discharge, so the machine is ready when you are.

Take on any trimming task with the Toro 24-volt* Max string trimmer. This trimmer features an auto-feed trim line system that automatically adjusts the line to the perfect cutting length. That means no more line hassles to slow you down! A power-saver adjustable cut feature changes the cutting line length from 12 inches to 10 inches for balancing run time.

This trimmer’s 14-inch shaft with adjustable assist handle helps reduce fatigue and promote precise trimming and edging. With Toro’s innovative, one-step, walk-behind edging option, just push a button and rotate the head to start edging. A wheel guides the trimmer along the ground to make the task easier.

Weighing in at 8 pounds, this new string trimmer (model 51487) comes with a rapid charger and on-board charge meter to display the battery status.

The new Toro cordless 24-volt* Max hedge trimmer features a work grip handle that rotates 90 degrees for unmatched comfort during vertical cutting. The trimmer’s long, 24-inch hardened polished steel cutting bar gives you extended reach and superior durability, while the dual-action cutting system reduces vibration and fatigue. Weighing in at 7 pounds, this trimmer can take on branches up to 5/8-inch in diameter.

The 24-volt* Max sweeper is the perfect tool for tidying up sidewalks, garages or any other hard surface. Choose from low or high-speed settings to perfectly match the sweeping power to the job. This lightweight sweeper packs a lot of power into only five pounds, making it easy to use and convenient for any clean up task.

*Battery manufacturer rating = 24V maximum & 22.2V nominal. Actual voltage varies with load.
