Black Toro mowers, are some snow blowers next??

Was on the Toro site today and OMG some of the Super Recyclers are all black! Looks like the more expensive ones, very shocking but also cool. Better watch out Todd, (Powershift93) the top of the line Toro snowblowers might just copy your color scheme one day!

everything is going to darker colors. cars especially wheels people like darker. my dad was saying when he grew up people with no money had dark or flat black wheels. what was cool was chrome.

i like it but with mowers and snowblowers black is a hard color to keep clean.

5 "new" models are black, https://www.toro.com/en/homeowner/walk-behind-mowers
they have them ;listed as having
"Durable Deck - Years of solid use with a rust-proof aluminum deck.
Solid Construction - Built to last with commercial components."

maybe it's black to say commercial as they sure have a higher price

I Don't think they will go Full Gloss Black like Mine. That Flat/Satin Paint is All The Rage Right now. And I like My Stuff to Be Polished to Perfection Just like The LAST RIDE of A Cadillac Hearse. If They had not Dicked Around with the Deck Design and kept the old school set up. Then Maybe, Just Maybe I would RUN Not Walk to Buy a New 1.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

I hope this blackout fad last longer than the gold emblems on cars in the 1980's. I'm liking this blackout scheme. However, the classic red/white orange/white color scheme for OPE is just traditional and timeless.

If I do get one of these newer black models, I'm going to put a red pinstripe at the bottom edge of the deck just to make it stand out as a "performance package". The stickers let the neighbors know that you can mow in the rain, if you wanted to.

Way cool, you can get paid for behaving like a lazy bum!
Wouldn't recommend that around here, copperheads would love the deep foliage to hide in, and my wife is of the perhaps unqualified but nonetheless firmly held opinion that the only good bug is a dead bug, pollinating or not.

lol, drop in a KN air filter and high flow exhaust. Super Recycler SS

I’ll be honest, the black just feels wrong.
