Now the same productivity, superior cut and durability you expect from the Groundsmaster® line is available in a pull-behind rotary mower. The all-new Groundsmaster 1200 is the perfect solution to leverage the equipment you already have and add versatility to a tractor that may otherwise sit idle. Plus, operators who are familiar with using the tractor will be able to apply the skills they already have to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Size is a key advantage of the Groundsmaster 1200. Together, the three independent contour-following cutting decks offer a 12-foot (3.66 m) width of cut, allowing operators to cut more grass in less time than it would take with a smaller mower.
In addition, the Groundsmaster 1200 is designed to make turnarounds quick and easy. There’s no need to turn off the PTO in order to turn around and continue mowing in the opposite direction; simply raise the decks a few inches to prevent scuffing.
For added convenience, the wing decks fold up for faster transport. This not only reduces the machine width to a narrow 88 inches (223.5 cm), but also allows easy access to the underside of the deck for cleaning and blade replacement. During transport, the torsion axle also cushions the load of the attachment, minimizing bumps and jarring for a smoother ride.
Durability is another area where the Groundsmaster 1200 lives up to its name. Cutting decks are equipped with the same legendary spindles with heavy-duty shafts and dual tapered roller bearings as other models in the line. These rugged components are designed to last and built to handle the toughest mowing conditions.
Like the Groundsmaster 4000 and 5900, the Groundsmaster 1200 also features bidirectional impact absorption technology, which protects the wing decks against damage from inadvertent contact with obstacles. If an operator accidentally hits an obstacle with a wing deck, the deck pivots out of the way.
Superior Quality of Cut
To complete the package, the Groundsmaster 1200’s quality of cut is exactly what you would expect from a Toro Groundsmaster mower. It’s designed to provide a consistent, even cut across the entire width of the mower while distributing clippings evenly — especially important in areas with taller grass that you are not able to mow as often.
The height of cut can be infinitely adjusted from 0.5 to 4 inches (1.3 to 10.1 cm), allowing the exact height of cut needed for the application. Cutting decks also follow undulations in the terrain for an excellent aftercut appearance. And for the perfect finishing touch, two full-width rollers are positioned on the front and rear of each deck — not only reducing scalping on undulating terrain, but also providing exceptional turf striping.
The new Groundsmaster 1200 pull-behind rotary mower is compatible with Toro’s new Outcross® 9060and other tractors with at least 35 hp (32.6 kW) PTO, and is now available. Contact your local Toro distributor for details or visit toro.com to learn more.
