Toro’s new Groundsmaster 1200 includes three contour-following cutting decks, each equipped with dual full rollers for unparalleled after-cut appearance. The 12-foot width of cut, paired with simple height of cut adjustment from 0.5 inches to 4 inches, offers outstanding productivity and versatility.
In terms of durability, the cutting decks feature the same trusted Groundsmaster spindles with heavy-duty shafts and dual tapered roller bearings. Like the Groundsmaster 5900 Series, the Groundsmaster 1200 features bidirectional impact absorption technology, which cushions and protects the individual cutting decks against damage from inadvertent contact with obstacles while mowing. The decks also fold up for simple and safe transport. In addition, the unit features transport axles that have an integrated torsion spring, effectively serving as a suspension system to eliminate bumps and jarring for a better operator experience.
“Driven by productivity, performance and durability, it’s really the only pull-behind worthy of being called a Groundsmaster,” said Jeremy Opsahl, global product marketing manager at Toro. “This new unit is the ideal piece of equipment to complement the new Toro Outcross 9060, and our channel partners and end-user customers are already very excited about it.”
In addition to the Toro Outcross 9060, the new Groundsmaster 1200 pull-behind rotary mower is also compatible with many other tractor makes and models.
Demo units will be available this summer, and Toro expects to begin shipping in fall 2018.
