36 APRIL 2017 OUTDOOR POWER EQUIPMENT www.outdoorpowerequipment.com WOOD HANDLERS (CHAIN SAWS, CHIPPERS, LOG SPLITTERS & STUMP GRINDERS) EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY FOCUS Toro's all-new log splitter Toro recently added an all-new log splitter to its rental product lineup. Combining durability, precision and reliability, this machine is ideal for any log-splitting job — large or small. Powered by a Honda GX270 engine, the Toro log splitter provides high levels of productivity and jobsite efficiency. This heavy-duty unit has a 22-ton cutting force that can easily split even the toughest logs. Featuring a 12-second cycle time, the 9-inch solid-steel wedge allows for a rapid and clean cut every time. In terms of productivity, the unit boasts a dual-wheel jack to assist in maneuverability over difficult terrain. Additionally, the unit can be operated horizontally or vertically for greater flexibility, and an intuitive control lever simplifies operation. The log splitter also comes with a variety of standard features, including amber front and rear tail lights to meet U.S. and Canadian towing standards, as well as added tail light protection. A heavy-duty catch assembly and durable fenders protect the machine during use and help reduce replacement part costs. An adjustable swing-away towing jack with dual pneumatic tires allows for simple transport even in remote areas. The log splitter will begin shipping in summer 2017. The Toro Co. Toro STX-26 stump grinder Rental store owners and contractors have taken notice of the Toro STX-26 stump grinder's easy-to-use controls, tracks, offset grinder head, hydraulically driven head design, narrow profile and light footprint, all of which make it ideal for jobs large and small. The integrated track drive increases hillside stability, while the compact footprint allows the unit to fit through standard 36-inch gates. Additionally, the Intelli- Sweep feature automatically adjusts sweep speed based on load on the wheel to maintain optimal operation. Easy-to-use controls and Toro exclusive traction control provide a safe and efficient solution for any stump grinding application, and in any terrain, including wet and hilly conditions. The head is hydraulically driven, meaning that there are no belts that can potentially slip or snap. The STX-26 provides a cutting depth of up to 12.5 inches below grade and a 33-inch above-grade cutting height, and it is powered by a Kawasaki 730V twin-cylinder engine. The Toro Co. Toro PowerPlex 40V Max 14-inch brushless DC chain saw Toro's PowerPlex 14-inch BLDC chain saw allows operators to take charge of downed trees and overgrowth in their yards. This cordless, 40-volt Max chain saw is full of power, requires very little maintenance, and starts with the push of a button. The brushless motor runs very efficiently and helps to maximize the number of cuts that can be made per fully charged battery. The auto-oiler, tool-free chain tensioning and bar adjustment are always at the operator's fingertips while working. This unit is an ideal combination of gas-like performance and cordless convenience. With 90 watt hours, the T90 battery provides up to 40 cuts of 6-inch by 6-inch timber, and the battery charges in approximately 60 minutes in the quick charger. The Toro Co.
