Toro has...autoturn??

Found out something fun today. I stopped at a local Power equipment supply, to check out the new toros. He had a couple 26” and 28” model that have automatic steering. No triggers, just a differential that allows for easy turning. 24” has a locked axle.

BTW, metal chute and the quikstick still feels good, but the plastic chute was lighter and more responsive. Oh well, I guess it helps with marketing, and competition. It’s still only second to Honda.

Toros website doesn’t have much to say about its automatic steering, but I wonder if it’s identical to autoturn.

Anyone care to pop the hood on their new toro and investigate? Pics??
