Toro pushes forward
with new pull-behind rotary
Revolutionising the market by combining the productivity of a pull-behind gang mower with the advanced technology and cutting quality of a Toro groundsmaster is Toro’s new pull-behind rotary mower, debuting at SALTEX.
The new Toro Groundsmaster 1200 revolutionises the market by combining the productivity of a pull-behind gang mower with the advanced technology and cutting quality of a Toro Groundsmaster mower.
What’s particularly interesting about this new machine is that it is, says Toro, a pull-behind more than worthy of being called a Groundsmaster such are its capabilities.
Jeff Anguige, Reesink’s national sales manager, explains more: “Described by Toro as ‘the only pull-behind rotary worthy of being a Groundsmaster’, the Groundsmaster 1200 earns this definition from three fully articulating contour-following decks that ensure no matter how uneven the terrain, the cut is consistently good. Full front and rear rollers prevent scalping and allow for turf striping and dual full width rollers leave a well-groomed after-cut appearance, rarely if ever seen in the sports and groundscare sectors.”
The height of cut can be adjusted from 0.5 to 4 inches, and productivity is high with a 12ft cutting width plus the machine’s ability to cut 8.73 acres an hour at 6mph. The cutting decks feature the trusted spindles of a Toro Groundsmaster mower’s heavy-duty shafts and dual tapered roller bearings for unmatched ruggedness.
Designed to make the operators’ life easy, the Groundsmaster 1200’s wing decks fold up to create a narrow 86-inch transportation width which means it can be easily maneuvered onto trailers and vans for better movement between sites. Plus, the transport wheels feature a torsion axle and integrated torsion spring to make movement when working smoother.
Similarly, bidirectional impact absorption technology cushions and protects the individual cutting decks against damage from inadvertent contact with obstacles while mowing, an all-too-often occurrence when it comes to cutting playing fields, verges and parks.
A pull-behind mower has the unbeatable benefit of adding value to existing machinery, which, in the groundscare market where value and productivity are paramount, is hugely appealing. The fact that the speedy, large area cutting of the GM1200 brings with it the quality of cut of a Toro Groundsmaster mower, creates a winning combination.
The GM1200 is the perfect companion for Toro’s new Outcross super-duty utility vehicle, which also launches at SALTEX. Jeff comments: “As with the entire grounds range, Toro focusses on productivity, versatility, flexibility and durability, and the Outcross and Groundsmaster are the perfect embodiment of all these things. Toro understands its market and that today’s groundsmen need to do more with less, which is something both these machines offer in abundance. Plus, they complement each other so well.”
