Differentiated cutting-edge features provide consistent course-wide playability
Toro is proud to announce the launch of the all-new Greensmaster® 1000 Series fixed-head walk greens mowers. This revolutionary new series of fixed-head greensmowers, with several patent-pending features, was designed to eliminate variability in the walk mowing process by integrating operators of all sizes and skill levels to work in harmony with the machine. Ultimately, the desired result was to improve the operator experience and deliver the most consistent quality-of-cut and playability for golfers on each and every green.
A number of operator-centric features have been integrated into
the new line to improve cut quality and consistency. For instance, the
innovative telescoping loop handle can be easily adjusted to comfortably
accommodate operators of varying heights. The simple adjustment simultaneously
helps to deliver a more consistent cut, while reducing operator fatigue. Handle
isolation mounts give the cutting units consistent contact with the ground
throughout the mowing process, eliminating even the slightest variability in
the height-of-cut that can occur because of variations in handle pressure or
differing operator strides.
The new bail design combines safety and operational control. New
operator controls, in conjunction with a shorter distance between the roller
and drum, deliver significantly more precise handling in turns as well as more
consistent performance on greens with modest undulations. Other exciting
features include the new Edge Series™ reels for a crisp, close, precise cut, an
easy-to-reach knob for adjusting the clip rate and flexibility to choose
between 8, 11, and 14 blade cutting units. These and several other newly
integrated features on the Greensmaster 1000 Series mowers contribute to the
outstanding after-cut appearance that customers have come to expect from Toro.
“This new series of fixed-head walk greens mowers takes cutting
performance to an all-new level,” said Helmut Ullrich, Toro senior product
marketing manager. “We started from the ground up in the development of these
machines, and we are excited that this solution helps courses deliver the best
playing experience available.”
Another key focus during the development of the new Greensmaster
1000 Series was to save time and money by minimizing and simplifying
maintenance. Several features contribute to a lower overall cost of ownership.
For example, it now takes only minutes to replace an entire cutting unit or
engine assembly. From the modular design for easy repair and replacement of key
components to the ability of each unit to backlap directly using transport
wheels, the entire maintenance process is streamlined to maximize uptime
without sacrificing performance.
The all-new Greensmaster 1000 Series models are powered by Honda®
GX120 engines*, and are available in a variety of standard cutting widths,
- Greensmaster 1018, featuring an 18-inch (45.7
cm) cutting width
