Toro is about to change the large-area reel mower market with a new design that will change the way you think about total cost of ownership. Perfect for high-end professional baseball, football and soccer fields, the new Reelmaster® 5010-H is set to launch in 2015. This Tier 4-compliant reel mower delivers long-term fuel and maintenance savings to your budget, making it well worth the investment.

Seamless Hybrid Power

The Reelmaster 5010-H is powered by Toro’s new patented PowerMatch™ technology, which precisely matches the power output to the power required for current mowing conditions. This design combines a 24.8-hp Kubota® diesel engine with a 48-volt battery pack to deliver the power you need with no waste.


Here’s how it works: In most conditions, the 24.8 hp engine has sufficient power to get the job done. When more challenging mowing conditions demand more power than the 24.8 hp engine can provide, the Reelmaster 5010-H sheds the cutting unit load from the engine to the battery pack, allowing more horsepower to be allocated to the traction circuit. If even more power is required, the battery pack continues to power the cutting units while also boosting the engine, giving the machine the equivalent of over 40 hp. And it all happens seamlessly with no difference in performance.

The result is plenty of power — but only when you need it — saving on fuel and your budget. And that’s not the only advantage. Because the cutting units are powered electrically, the reel speed is precisely controlled for a consistent speed and uniform performance across all cutting units.

Substantial Fuel Savings

Because no power is wasted, the Reelmaster 5010-H gives you excellent fuel efficiency. Those savings add up fast, especially on sports fields. You can expect an average fuel savings of 20 percent over comparably equipped machines, making the Reelmaster 5010-H easy on your budget. Furthermore, there’s no need to plug in the Reelmaster 5010-H. Its system is designed to recharge itself, giving you true hybrid efficiency without additional electrical costs.Reelmaster5010H-Story-Images-2

Beyond fuel savings, the Reelmaster 5010-H also helps boost productivity with features like the InfoCenter™ LCD display, which provides system information, alerts, service reminders and diagnostics. Plus, the Auto Idle feature reduces the engine to low idle after being inactive for a set period of time for less noise and even more fuel savings.

Lower Maintenance Costs

The Reelmaster 5010-H’s cutting units run on electric power, so there are no hydraulic cutting system components to maintain. Compare that to a typical large-area reel mower, which can require you to replace hydraulic lines every two to three years! The Reelmaster 5010-H eliminates the expense of replacement filters and hydraulic fluid — and the labor required to take the hoses off and replace them. That can add up to about $1,100 in savings every 800 to 1,000 hours (based on Toro’s retail cost of parts and labor).Reelmaster5010H-Story-Images-3

In addition, the Reelmaster 5010-H has roughly 100 fewer potential hydraulic leak points than a traditional hydraulic machine, which offers peace of mind.

Tested, Proven Reliability

When you invest in hybrid technology, you need to know it’s going to be reliable. This design has undergone years of rigorous lab and field testing to ensure the performance you expect from Toro. The battery pack is made up of four sealed, maintenance-free Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries that are designed to handle many cycles and harsh environments. The Reelmaster 5010-H is built on the proven Reelmaster 5010 Series platform, which is among the most powerful, best-selling large-area reel mowers on the market. It also features Toro’s Dual Precision Adjustment (DPA) cutting units for an outstanding quality-of-cut.

Bottom line? The new Reelmaster 5010-H meets all your requirements for power and performance while also reducing your fuel and maintenance costs to keep your cost of ownership low. Ask your local Toro distributor for details and watch for more information coming soon!
