JOHN DEERE - 1200A Back
1200A BUNKER & FIELD RAKE
REACH A SMOOTH FINISH
Putting the finishing touches on a golf course bunker, a ball field infield or a new-course construction project requires a delicate touch and excellent maneuverability. To perform those jobs, John Deere has not one, but two fine options to help you complete the job. The 1200A is a gear-driven machine that set the standard for all bunker and field rakes when it was first introduced in 1995. And our 1200 Hydro gives you the excellent pulling and pushing power you expect from a hydrostatic machine.
Mechanical drive system
Less steering effort
Standard power lift
POWERFUL 13.5 HP (10.1 KW), 401 CC GAS ENGINE OFFERS PLENTY OF PULLING AND PUSHING POWER
Raising the hinged rear fiberglass cowling exposes the air-cooled, four-cycle, overhead valve engine.
This engine features a powerful 401-cc-cc single-cylinder design, which generates 13.5 hp (10.1 kW)*.
High torque for pulling power
Fuel efficient for lower operating cost and extended operating range
3.6-U.S. gal. (13.6 L) fuel tank for long hours of operation with leaded or unleaded gasoline
Full-pressure lubrication and oil filter for good reliability
Low vibration for long component life and operator comfort
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.
TORQUE CONVERTER AND TRANSAXLE DESIGN PROVIDES EXCELLENT TRACTION AND TIGHT TURNING RADIUS
The torque converter and transaxle design deliver a 164-to-1 gear ratio for excellent pulling and pushing power. The belt from torque converter is permanently engaged, greatly reducing the potential of belt wear. A durable Kanzaki transaxle with a differential lock allows for increased traction and reliability.
The rear differential design allows for the 1200A to turn on a tight 12-in. (305-mm) turning radius for outstanding maneuverability, yielding high productivity. Speeds are variable in forward and reverse from 0 mph to 12.6 mph (0 km/h to 20.3 km/h), providing excellent raking quality at reduced ground speeds without sacrificing quick transport from bunker to bunker.
HIGH FLOTATION TIRES WITH LOW GROUND PRESSURE TO MINIMIZE COMPACTION
High flotation tires are inflated to a low 6 psi (41.4 kPa) to minimize ground compaction.
Two tire treads are offered:
- Knobby is for increased traction in bunkers, two-ply design.
- Turf is for reduced marking in turf applications, such as spiking greens. This tread is also an excellent choice for baseball applications, four-ply design.
Both tire options feature a 22.5x10-8 front tire and two 25x12-9 rear tires.
The 41.5-in. (105.4-cm) wheelbase provides good stability on steep inclines.
OPERATOR STATION DESIGN PROVIDES COMFORTABLE AND PRODUCTIVE OPERATION
The operator station for the 1200A Bunker and Field Rake was designed with comfort and productivity in mind. A large 14-in. (35.6-cm) diameter steering wheel with 8.3-to-1 gear reduction ratio provides for easy and responsive steering. An adjustable high back seat with spring cushion reduces operator fatigue. Wide running boards offer comfortable leg support across a wide range of operators.
All controls for cultivating and front blade operation are conveniently located to the operator's right-hand side. The mechanical linkage design allows for easy operation of both attachments. An electrical lift/lower system for the rear-mounted attachments means effortless lifting and lowering. The switch is located on the dash for the ultimate in ease of use.
CONVENIENT LOCATION OF ALL INSTRUMENTATION AND OPERATOR CONTROLS ON FRONT DASH FOR EASE OF USE
All instrumentation and operator controls are located on the front dash for ease of use and premium visibility. These include:
Hour meter to keep track of service intervals
Voltage indicator to monitor for proper charging of the 12-V power circuit
Ignition switch on right hand side of the console for quick and easy starting
Easy-to-reach optional front light switch, mounted on the left side
Choke control on left hand side of console for easier cold starts
Easy access to the rear implement lift and lower switch, located on the right side of the dash
EASY-TO-USE FOOT CONTROLS FOR EFFICIENT OPERATION
The foot control design of the 1200A increases productivity with ease of operation. To change from forward to reverse, a convenient pedal system is located on the left side of the foot platform, allowing for quick and easy engagement with the touch of a toe.
To select the forward gear, simply press the front pedal forward. To switch to reverse, press the rear foot pedal rearward. Neutral position is required for starting, and can easily be located by utilizing the bar welded to the foot platform.
Also located to the left side is the lever for the differential lock. Simply engage by pressing down with the left heel. NOTE: Differential lock should only be activated when the unit is at a complete stop or damage to the transaxle may occur.
The brake engagement is located on the right side of the foot platform. A foot-activated transaxle disc brake allows for quick and controlled stops. To activate the parking brake, simply step on the brake pedal and engage the retaining lever. To de-activate the parking brake, simply disengage the retaining lever by pushing forward with the right foot or toe.
Also located to the right side of the operator platform is the throttle pedal. To move the 1200A, simply select the direction of travel on the left-hand side, disengage the parking brake, and press on the throttle pedal. The further the pedal is pushed, the faster you will go. The maximum speed is 12.6 mph (20.3 km/h). NOTE: Revving the engine or failing to brake to a complete stop prior to changing from forward to reverse and vice versa will result in gear clash and may damage the machine.
