Toro launched its new Greensmaster 1000 Series fixed-head walk greens mowers.

This series of fixed-head greens mowers 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.

A number of operator-centric features have been integrated into the new line to improve cut quality and consistency. For instance, the telescoping loop handle can be easily adjusted to comfortably accommodate operators of varying heights. The simple adjustment simultaneously helps 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 more precise handling in turns and more consistent performance on greens with modest undulations. Other features include the new Edge Series reels for a close, precise cut, an easy-to-reach knob for adjusting the clip rate and flexibility to choose between eight, 11 and 14 blade cutting units.

“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.”

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. With the modular design for easy repair and replacement of key components and the ability of each unit to backlap directly using transport wheels, the entire maintenance process is streamlined to maximize uptime without sacrificing performance.

The Greensmaster 1000 Series models are powered by Honda GX120 engines, and are available in a variety of standard cutting widths, including:

  • Greensmaster 1018, featuring an 18-inch cutting width;
  • Greensmaster 1021, featuring a 21-inch cutting width; and
  • Greensmaster 1026, featuring a 26-inch cutting width.

The series will be on display at the Golf Industry Show in booth No. 4337 and available for purchase in spring 2019.
