Machine Focus Toro Greensmaster 1000 Sometimes things happen – new products are launched, new technology is developed, or in perfect harmony the two combine – and the result is something that just can’t be beaten. A classic example of this is the revolutionary design of the Greensmaster 1000, which is still influencing greens cutting 28 years since its launch. This Toro classic is as popular now as when it launched in 1989, bringing with it no less than four revolutionary and innovative design features that are now widely seen in professional pedestrian greens mowers across the world. The loop handle design and the ‘Dual Klick’ adjust of the bedknife were industry firsts. As was the front weight bias, which offsets the operator’s natural tendency to place weight on the handle, allowing the cylinder to better follow the ground’s contours for a consistent cutting height. A wide kickstand for stationary stability to change transport wheels was new too, and all together they combined to deliver a superior quality of cut that remains unmatched today. Its smooth drums are gentle on the greens and grass baskets distribute clippings evenly for optimal mowing on each pass, whether the conditions are wet or dry. Even at the lowest height of cut setting, the GR1000 provides a beautifully consistent finish thanks to the machine’s well- balanced weight distribution that ensures straight-line tracking with minimal operator guidance. This, taken together with all its other features, produces the smoothest, most uniform cut possible in a greens mower.
