Toro introduces the Groundsmaster e3200, a new front rotary mower

By |  March 12, 2023 0 Comments

The Groundsmaster 3200 two-wheel drive unit from Toro will be available as a battery-powered option in 2023. Building on a 50-year history from the introduction of the Groundsmaster 72 back in 1973, the battery-powered Groundsmaster e3200 features the same rugged chassis, commercial-grade mowing deck and intuitive operator controls as the current diesel-powered platform.

“We are very excited to offer Toro’s proven Groundsmaster mower platform with a battery-powered option for golf course maintenance crews,” Tony Ferguson, senior product manager for Toro, said. “We understand that customers who want to eliminate engine exhaust emissions and reduce operational noise by transitioning to electric-powered equipment will not sacrifice power, functionality or performance in any way — and the new Groundsmaster e3200 achieves that goal.”

The mower includes Toro’s HyperCell battery technology, a distributed Battery Management System (BMS) that optimizes battery performance to enhance reliability and longevity. Because the BMS is integrated, HyperCell lithium-ion batteries communicate with each other to optimize efficiency and extend the lifecycle, well beyond the 5,000-hour design life of the traction unit. HyperCell batteries provide diagnostic information to simplify and streamline any service needs. A third-party recycling program is available for batteries that reach end-of-life.

The mower also includes:

  • 11 HyperCell batteries, but can be configured with up to 17 for heavy users
  • A 3.3 kW on-board charger
  • Smart controls
  • InfoCenter display with battery charge status, hours, alerts, customizable settings and more
  • 60-inch side or rear discharge mowing deck options

Additionally, the customizable reserve power setting allows the superintendent to establish a minimum discharge level, notifying the operator of low battery charge status and ensuring plenty of power to safely return the mower to the charging location.
