General info

1.Is gas-powered
Toro XLS-380
A gas-powered lawn mower offers several benefits over an electric one. For example, the increased power allows them to easily cut through longer/tougher grass, and they are not limited by cord length or how long the battery lasts.
2.Has electric start
Toro XLS-380
Sometimes it can be hard to start gas-powered lawn mowers, but with an electric starter you can be guaranteed of it starting first time.
3.Is cordless
Toro XLS-380
Cordless tools/machines are suited to a variety of different situations, as you are not limited to only working in places with power sources nearby.
4.Has side discharge
Toro XLS-380
The mower can discharge the cut grass to the side. The cut grass helps to fertilise the lawn and helps preserve moisture in the summer, and means that you do not have to empty a grass bag/box. However, this is not as effective as a mulching lawn mower.
5.Is self-propelled
Toro XLS-380
A self-propelled lawn mower requires less effort from the user, as you don’t have to manually push it forward.
6.Has a steel deck
Toro XLS-380
A steel deck’s main advantage is that it is durable, and if you hit a stone it will only make a dent rather than fracturing.

Cut quality

1.maximum cutting height

102mm

A higher cutting height is needed when your lawn doesn’t have optimum conditions, for example when there is extreme heat or cold, as a longer leaf allows it to stay healthy.
2. wider cutting width

97cm

With a wider cutting width you will have to make less passes when mowing your lawn, reducing the time it takes. This is especially important if you have a large lawn.
3.cutting height ratio

4

The cutting height ratio indicates the ratio between the minimum and maximum cutting heights, providing more versatility when choosing the optimum cutting length for your lawn.
4.turn radius

52cm

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn that can be made. With a smaller turn radius, it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth to turn around.
5.minimum cutting height

25mm

A lower minimum cutting height is an advantage if you prefer a shorter grass length for your lawn. However, shorter grass requires good weather conditions to stay lush and green, such as warm weather and moderate sunlight.

Performance

1.Has an overhead valve engine
Toro XLS-380
An overhead valve (OHV) engine is usually found in high-end models, and provides more power and fuel economy than a side valve design.
2.engine size

0.45l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
3.horsepower

16hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4. faster reverse speed

1.5km/h

A faster reverse speed makes it quicker to turn around and manoeuvre.

Features

1.Has variable speed
Toro XLS-380
A lawn mower with variable speed is beneficial because you may wish to slow down or speed up based on the area you are mowing, for example going slower when making tight turns around a tree.
2.Has headlights
Toro XLS-380
With headlights you can mow your lawn in low-light conditions.
