Toro Goes Biodiesel

After four years of testing everything from soybean oils to French-fry grease as fuels, the Toro Co. will introduce biodiesel-powered mowers and a hydrogen fuel-cell utility vehicle today at the Golf Industry Show in Anaheim, Calif.

Two dozen models of Toro’s new biodiesel ground equipment will be on display at the world’s largest golf show, as will Toro’s new diesel-to-biodiesel conversion kits that range from about $30 to $500. The kits will hit the market in June. Toro’s new lawn equipment will be delivered to commercial customers in 2008, officials said.
