Minneapolis, United States: Toro has announced the launch of the all-new Workman GTX utility vehicle, one of the most versatile grounds and turf crossover vehicles in its class.
Combining superior comfort, control and versatility, the Workman GTX provides all the features to help tackle a multitude of tasks on and around the golf course.
Superintendents and equipment managers are able to select from several models to match the right vehicle to their specific needs.
Among these options are four and two-seat configurations, a variety of front and rear-attachments for garbage cans, hose reels or walk spreaders, and a number of flatbed options to haul even the bulkiest materials.
With over 300 configurations to fit almost any application, the Workman GTX is a highly versatile and cost-effective machine.
“This simply superior utility vehicle is the best in the industry,” said Greg Lawrence, Senior Marketing Manager at Toro, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“The versatility of the GTX allows for a number of different jobs to be completed with a single vehicle, while also delivering on performance and operator comfort.”
Operation of the Workman GTX is simple, thanks to an automotive-grade rack and pinion steering system that provides more control and easier steering to allow operators to focus on the task at hand and get the job done faster.
In addition, class-exclusive coil-over shocks surround the vehicle and provide improved suspension for a smoother ride that minimises operator fatigue.
The Workman GTX comes with low maintenance hydraulic brakes that require no cable adjustment and less pedal force for a reliable stop every time.
This practical and comfortable vehicle comes with either the 429 cc gasoline or 48-volt A/C electric model. At just 47 inches (119 centimetres) wide, its narrow frame also allows access for working in tight areas with ease.
Additionally, a powder-coated frame and underbody, paired with a strong exterior, make the Workman GTX extremely durable and ready for the demands of daily use by superintendents, grounds managers and operators.
The Workman GTX will be available from spring 2016.
