Toro is building off its ProCore 648 aerator model with the new ProCore 648s, which includes more features and enhancements to improve turf-care capabilities.

“We are keeping everything that people love about the ProCore 648 and improving on it,” says Jeffrey Ische, global product marketing manager at Toro. “We’ve listened to our customers and are confident they’ll find that the features on the new ProCore 648s, which has more than ten new patents, will help improve productivity, operating consistency, ease of use and, most importantly, its aerating performance.”

One improvement of the ProCore 648s is its new electronic drive control, which can maintain more consistent hole spacing when aerifying sloping terrain. Additionally, operators can increase speed on turnarounds while allowing for a tighter turning radius — with little to no front-wheel push during turns.

Operating the ProCore 648s in the Delayed Mode reduces disruption of the turf surface, resulting in a faster return to pre-aeration conditions. In this mode, key operating parameters are continually monitored to ensure max tine depth on the first entries into the soil. Delayed Mode also allows operators to mark the spot where they want the coring head to drop or raise using the leading edge of the front tire as their indicator, making starting and ending passes or jumping up and over an in-ground obstacle like an irrigation head, much easier.

The new model also features revised positioning of the controls on the console, allowing for single-hand operation from either side of the machine, so operators can easily walk forward, focusing their attention toward the direction of travel. InfoCenter technology has also been added to enable precise ‘set and save’ increments for tine depth and hole spacing, giving managers more control. Lastly, a storage box has been added, and an accessory LED light kit is available.
