Yanmar America Corp., a division of Yanmar Company Ltd., has partnered with The Toro Company to provide diesel engines for select commercial turf maintenance equipment. The Yanmar diesel engines will allow Toro to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier 4 emissions regulations, which go into effect Jan. 1, 2013.
Yanmar will provide Toro with EPA-compliant diesel engine models. The low total lifecycle ownership cost of Yanmar’s diesel engines along with innovative technology and reduced environmental impact were deciding factors in Toro’s decision to form a partnership with Yanmar. The first Toro products to feature Yanmar’s Tier 4-compliant diesel engine technology will be select commercial mowers over 25 horsepower.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for Yanmar to partner with a category-leading company like Toro,” said Ted Bregar, president of Yanmar America. “Both companies share a complete commitment to doing what's best for the environment today and in the future."
Yanmar America Corp. is located in Adairsville, Ga., and is the regional headquarters for North America. Yanmar’s primary focus is on the product and service categories of agriculture, construction, power generation, marine and industrial engines.
The Toro Company is a leading worldwide provider of turf and landscape maintenance equipment and irrigation solutions.
