Tow and Mow – Hort 1270

Return to Previous Page

The Tow and Mow Hort series is more suitable for those wanting to cut close to fence lines, around trees and down rows as the width of the mower is the full width of the cut. The Hort series feature a jockey wheel as standard which allow for effortless connecting to your ATV or tow vehicle. Top your paddocks at up to 15 km/hr (9 mph) with the Tow and Mow – this means you can cover up to 1 hectare (2.5 acres) in just 35 minutes with the 1270 model. Easily adjust the cutting height from 20mm (1”) up to 200mm (8”) by just winding a handle at the rear of the machine. No locking pins or heavy adjustment required, just wind it up for travelling between jobs and then back into position for mowing. The Hort Series features our patented direct drive system which means the cutting spindle is directly mounted onto the engine crankshaft. This means there is no belts or pulleys which typically are the Achilles heel of this type of mower.

Product Details

Our patented bearing system supports the direct drive engine, meaning there’s no loss of power or slippage that can occur with typical belt and pulley systems. And the motors are protected from any shocks, resulting from sudden stops.

01. TWO ENGINES

This has eliminated the need for belts and pulleys on a single engine setup. Very few parts result in a very simple solution.

02. WHEELS BEHIND DECK

With the 2 wheels tucked behind the mowing deck, it allows you to mow right up to fence lines or around trees.  Anti-scalp wheels then help protect against scalping when cutting low.

03. OFFSET ENGINES

The engines are offset which means they have a cutting overlap of 25mm (1 inch) ensuring there is no belts or timing necessary!  Simple!

04. BUILD QUALITY

Construction is 4mm thick, high grade steel which is zinc sprayed and then powdercoated.
