Precision Spraying from Toro

Toro’s Multi Pro 5800 turf sprayer features a six-diaphragm pump, which produces twice the volume to achieve the full spectrum of spray rates and simultaneous aggressive agitation for a homogeneous mixing of tank contents. The new Pro Control XP console delivers instantaneous rate response to ensure the correct rate is applied from start to stop, and the Cleanload Eductor lets operators safely load the tank without first mixing a slurry. Also, the unit has an automated Fresh Water Rinse System for on-the-fly triple rinse. Accessories available include the Drift Reduction Boom Shroud, which attaches to the standard boom, and the Ultra Sonic Boom Leveling System, which automatically adjusts the booms to the correct spraying height in undulating turf conditions.
