Bringing a new level of consistency to pedestrian mowing is Toro’s new Greensmaster 1021 with patent-pending features to improve the operator’s experience without affecting the quality of cut.
Part of a new series of fixed-head pedestrian greens mowers, the 21-inch mower, which launched at BTME 2019, benefits from a number of features designed to take performance cutting to the next level, according to the company. The handle and suspension have all received the Toro touch and together mean operation is simpler, cut is more consistent and adjustment is even easier.
Jeff Anguige, national sales manager for Reesink Turfcare, says: “The innovation in the new series of pedestrian greensmowers takes what was loved and appreciated in the enduring success of the Greensmaster 1000 mower and makes it even better. This is Toro innovation at its best – taking something you think can’t be any better and doing just that.”
The most significant design development comes from the new telescoping loop handle which can be easily adjusted to comfortably accommodate operators of all heights and skill levels, while handle isolation mounts give the cutting unit constant contact with the ground throughout the mowing process.
Jeff continues: “Even the slightest variability in the height of cut due to handle pressure or different operator movements can affect the consistency of cut. These design improvements eliminate that, while the constant contact with the ground and the inclusion of the new EdgeSeries cylinders guarantees a crisp, close and precise cut.”
New operator controls in conjunction with a shorter distance between the roller and the drum also means handling is more precise in turns and on undulating ground.
Maintenance is now even quicker – now it only takes minutes to replace an entire cutting unit or engine assembly. It’s not just that though, the modular design allows for easy repair and replacement of key components and each unit’s ability to backlap directly using the transport wheels means the entire maintenance process is streamlined.
