Some spaces are just too steep or confined to reach with a larger traditional mower. That’s why Toro offers specialty equipment to get the job done. These products provide Toro’s high quality of cut for specific applications.

HoverPro® Tackles Steep Slopes

The Toro® HoverPro is perfect for cutting grass on steep slopes, hard-to-reach areas or near water in parks, campus grounds and other properties with challenging landscapes. Only the HoverPro features a traditional mower blade, delivering superior quality of cut and faster performance. It’s also able to cut through thicker, coarser grass.


Toro’s HoverPro 450 and 550 offer a 45-degree working angle to handle virtually any hill, along with maximum lift for smoother mowing. These units are exceptionally strong and lightweight, offering a high power-to-weight ratio for better control and greater stability in difficult cutting conditions.

The HoverPro Series is available in 16”, 18” or 21” cutting widths, and optional accessories include transport wheels, an extension handle and a hi-rise kit to increase the height of cut.

ProStripe® Creates Elegant Surfaces on a Smaller Scale

The ProStripe 560 striping mower is another excellent option for fitting into tight spaces. The ProStripe delivers the same quality of cut and exceptional turf striping as our larger mowers in a very small, nimble footprint. It’s ideal for mowing formal lawns around pavilions, clubhouses and hotels — anywhere a larger mower can’t go.

Key features of the ProStripe 560 include an auto-drive transmission, a commercial Briggs & Stratton Readystart™ engine, and a low cutting height for fine-turf applications. The ProStripe also has a full-width rear roller with an integrated differential that allows you to turn on a dime without scuffing the turf. This rear roller has a unique ribbed profile for added traction in damp conditions or on undulating terrain.


The ProStripe’s durable die-cast aluminum deck has a cutting width of 22”. It’s fitted with a robust, high-impact ABS polymer deck liner and is designed for superior airflow and collection capabilities. Integrated front fins manage airflow into the cutting deck to ensure a fluid movement of air through the cutting chamber and into the collector – even at the lowest height of cut. The mower also has a high-capacity 18.5-gal grass clippings bag with a large opening for easy emptying.
