New features added to greens roller
The Toro Company has improved upon its GreensPro® greens roller with a new model that features split stainless steel smoothing rollers. The GreensPro 1260’s smoothing rollers reduce the risk of scuffing during turns and overlapping heads that deliver a consistent playing surface with each pass.
The GreensPro 1260 also features a quick-latch coupler with a 60-degree pivot handle that makes the transition from roll to transport easier. The 1260 is a step up from the older 1240 model.
Simplifying routine maintenance efforts was a primary driver in the development of the new GreensPro 1260. In addition to reducing the number of grease points from four on the GreensPro 1240 to one on the 1260, the new model provides easy access to all vital components of the machine. The drain for the hydraulic oil, for example, is now located on the bottom of the machine to simplify fluid changes. Additionally, the drive system on the new model features a hydraulic drive motor that powers the traction roller. This significantly reduces maintenance associated with traditional chain and sprocket drive systems. All of these factors contribute to simplified maintenance efforts to help increase overall course productivity.
Additionally, the GreensPro 1260 offers several ergonomic benefits to the operator, including a new bi-directional seat adjustment lever to easily adjust the operating position, standard arm rests for increased comfort, and a rubber isolation mount to help minimize vibrations to the operator.
“The new GreensPro 1260 takes all the best parts of previous GreensPro models and incorporates a number of features to increase productivity and comfort, and simplify routine maintenance efforts,” said Jamieson Bergen, senior product marketing manager at Toro. “All the new features really add up to make this new greens roller a leader in its equipment class.”
The Toro GreensPro 1260 begins shipping this summer.
