All-Wheel Steer

A Toolcat 5600 loaded with branches in a utility grapple attachment makes a tight turn through a grassy area.

Toolcat™ utility work machines turn on a dime. All-wheel steer, with four steerable axles, delivers a tighter turning radius than most tractors, utility vehicles and ATVs, so you can maneuver in tight spaces without having to back up and reposition.

The steering angle allows the outside wheels to rotate faster than the inside wheels for fast, effortless turns around trees, through tight corners, on sensitive ground and when maneuvering in and out of tiny workspaces like in barns or between buildings. And with its hydraulic power steering, you’ll have nearly effortless control.

Plus, the rear wheels skid through tight turns without damaging lawns or leaving marks on driveways. Effortlessly operate on hard or soft surfaces – and everything in between. On hard surfaces like asphalt or concrete, all-wheel steer minimizes tire wear. Similarly, when you work on soft, manicured surfaces like grass or turf, you’ll minimize ground disturbance. Each wheel of the Toolcat 5600 and 5610 moves separately through the turning arc and rolls smoothly through the turn. That means you won't have to spend time re-installing sod or planting grass after the job is done.

If your work doesn’t require all-wheel steer, you can operate in front-wheel steer. Make the change from one steering mode to the other without leaving the operator's seat. Simply align the front and rear wheels using the AWS indicator lights, press the switch and away you go. It's the best of both worlds.
