Lawn mowers anyone?

Post by Jim Blackwood » 23 Oct 2013, 19:32

In case you hadn't heard, Toro used the TUD5 in their Groundsmaster 3000D professional golf course grounds mowers. I have two of these beasties and for a 5 acre estate they are quite lovely machines. Anyway that is the basis of my new membership here. I am a prototype developer by trade and have a history of mating unusual engine/vehicle combinations so this fits right in.
