The Toro Company announced that all its diesel-powered golf course and sports fields and grounds equipment will be “Biodiesel Ready” by 2008.
This includes the Toro Reelmaster, Groundsmaster, Greensmaster, Workman and MultiPro product families. Beyond these specific product families, Toro will continue to expand the use of biodiesel fuels in other diesel-powered equipment lines.
As part of this initiative, the company is also creating upgrade kits for the above-mentioned product families to convert diesel models already in production or in the field to be compatible with biodiesel fuel. The kits are expected to be available by June 2007.
With kit modifications, customers can use biodiesel fuel blends of up to B20.
