Patent-pending PowerMatch™ Technology delivers fuel savings without sacrificing performance

The Toro Reelmaster 5010-H is the industry’s first and only fairway mower with a true hybrid drive system and gives you the power and performance you want with the fuel efficiency and reliability you need.

Through its patented PowerMatch™ system, the Reelmaster® 5010-H utilises the power of a diesel engine in combination with a battery pack to supply over 40 horsepower when conditions require more power output.

For example when hilly terrain and challenging mowing require more power than the 24.8 hp Tier 4 compliant diesel engine can provide, the Reelmaster 5010-H sheds the cutting unit load from the engine to the self-charging 48-volt battery pack.

If even more power is required, the battery pack boosts the engine power, giving the machine the equivalent of over 40 horsepower to provide consistent, productive and efficient traction and cutting performance.

“The new Reelmaster 5010-H boasts average fuel savings of 20 percent when compared to comparable 5-gang fairway mowers and significantly more fuel savings when operated in the economy mode, ” says Mark Johnson, Senior Sales Manager Golf Equipment for Toro Australia.

Alternative power technology is increasingly important to the industry, and we’re excited to be on the forefront of this movement.


We are proud of the fact that we are able to offer the industry’s first and only fairway mower with a true hybrid drive system, but we’re even more excited about the numerous benefits it will bring to our customers.”

The move from hydraulic to electric cutting units has also resulted in other key customer benefits. First, the electric motors provide more precise control of both reel speed and clip rates, which translates into a more consistent cut quality and improved playability.

Secondly, end users experience reduced maintenance downtime due to the elimination of the hydraulic components commonly associated with traditional cutting units.

Over 100 potential leak points have been removed from the hydraulic system as a result of the move to all-electric cutting unit motors.

We also have engineered a number of operator comforts into the Reelmaster 5010-H, by taking the best parts of the time-tested 5010 Series platform and integrating hybrid technology into the already popular fairway mower line,” Mark Johnson adds.

Operators and technicians alike will appreciate the easy-to-use integrated onboard InfoCenter™ display, which provides system alerts, service reminders, diagnostics, and vehicle traction and cutting notifications.”

The new Reelmaster 5010-H also features Plug ‘n’ Mow technology, which allows it to accept 5-inch (12.7 cm) or 7-inch (17.7 cm) diameter Dual Point Adjustment (DPA) cutting units in 8 or 11 blade configurations.

Simply plug in the applicable cutting unit reel motors and the machine automatically makes the necessary adjustments — another time-saver and yet another way to provide the cut quality you desire for any conditions.
