This premium-grade hover-mower from Toro is the top machine in the HoverPro range, and as such is suitable for tough landscaping applications on the most challenging terrain.
Making it tick is a powerful and ultra-dependable GCV160 engine; a 160cc four-stroke power-pack that makes the most of Honda’s latest advancements in overhead-cam technology, thereby ensuring quiet, low-vibration operation; reduced fuel-costs; and emission-compliance.
Automatic mechanical decompression means only a light pull on the starter-cord is need for ignition; while Honda’s Dura-Lube ensures all the key engine parts are protected from premature wear.
The Toro HoverPro 550 Petrol Hover Lawn Mower has been equipped with a super-sharp 53cm metal-bar blade (the widest in the range), so will deliver a clean, consistent cut, no matter what the grass-conditions. The blade repeatedly chops cut grass as it’s held under the mower-deck for a pleasingly neat finish and natural nourishment of the turf.
Built to cope with the rigours of day-in, day-out professional use, the HoverPro 550 is fitted with strong and durable tubular-steel handlebars and is constructed around an impact- and rust-resistant injection-moulded ABS deck.
Thanks to its lightweight build (just 19kg) and ergonomic handle-design, this top-of-the-range model is a pleasure to work with and can be used for long periods without much effort expended by the user.
A three-stage cutting-height (18 – 30mm) makes it possible to manage changing grass-conditions; while an Operator Presence Control (or ‘deadman’s handle’) works to eliminate any possibility of accidental injury.

Powerful Item Well Suited to Large Sloping Lawns.Review by Paul Pryszlak / (Posted on 18/03/2015)As usual delivered quickly by MowDirect.
Assembly is fiddly with not the best instructions but if you have ever made up a petrol mower before, the principles are the same. I would recommend printing a blown up photo of the item to use as a guide to which side does what etc.
Starts straight away no problem. It has one throttle setting only as its a hover. Once it spools up to full speed the mower lashes through everything. As it's a hover, and a large powerful one at that, wear eye protection as grass and debris gets everywhere. We use this for trade purposes on industrial areas where it is quicker than unloading a ride on. You really can cut a lot of grass very quickly with this. The fuel consumption is superb, using a quarter of the amount a ride on would over the same area. The hover air inlet strainer does require regular unblocking especially if leaves are present but it only takes a second or two.
We bought the wheel kit which is important to transport the mower from lawn to lawn. It's fiddly again to fit, but does the job well. We greased all the mounting points to ensure swift adding and removing.
In summary, a useful tool in the mowing arsenal for large rough areas. Powerful, good cut, superb on slopes and very little physical effort required as she hovers around.
