Wide tires and wheelbase
Wide tiresWide tires

Wide high-flotation tires provide low ground compaction.

  • All tires are 22x11.00x8 NHS


The 47-in. (119-cm) wheelbase enables a tight turning radius.

Heavy-duty air filter protects engine in tough conditions

A heavy-duty air filter is standard equipment on the 1200A Bunker and Field Rake.  Featuring a cyclone design, this dual element filter can eject 90 percent to 95 percent of dust particles before they reach the paper element core.  This reduces overall maintenance costs through less cleaning and replacement.

Foot controls
Foot controlsFoot controls

The forward and reverse foot pedals provide ease of identification and operation. The forward pedal is larger than the reverse pedal and provides good clearance for the operator's foot. This is the same two-pedal design used on the  John Deere 2500A Riding Greens Mower.


Raising the hinged rear fiberglass body cowling exposes the 16-hp*(11.9-kW), 479-cc air-cooled, overhead valve engine:

  • High torque for pulling power
  • Fuel efficient for lower operating cost and extended operating range
  • 3.9 gal (14.8 L) gas tank for long hours of operation with unleaded gasoline
  • Full pressure lubrication and oil filter for good reliability
  • Low vibration for long component life and operator comfort

Accessories and Attachments


Hydro Rake 72 In. Rear Mounted Prong Blade Rake - TCB10891
Rear rakeRear rake

A rear rake is standard equipment.

  • 72-in. wide for rapid coverage
  • Forward, aft, lateral, and side-to-side floating action enables rake to follow ground contours for well-groomed finish
  • Rake assembly quickly detaches in less than one minute, exposing the rear hitch for convenience and added versatility
Hydro Rake Scarifier - TCB10890

A mid-mount scarifier tine section can be mounted to the 1200 Hydro.


The scarifier is recommended where surface cultivation and preparation requirements dictate that small rocks (up to 2-1/2-in. diameter) must be allowed to pass through the scarifier or for relieving surface compaction on skinned areas of baseball fields, running tracks, and athletic complexes. Also works very well for grooming cinder, crushed brick, and small gravel warning tracks.

Light Kit - BTC10094
Mid Mount Cultivator Shoes/Blades - TCB10939
