The Turfkeeper is Woods’ latest mowing attachment. This rear-mount finish mower turns your compact tractor into a full-size mowing machine, cutting a 60 or 72 inch swath with each pass. Thanks to its quick hitch compatibility, tool-free belt access and heavy-duty construction, this is a great solution for cutting large fields of grass without skimping on finish quality.
What is the Turfkeeper?
While Woods is mostly known for their giant batwing mowers, this new model series scales back the size while retaining the features that make their attachments so popular.
These are rear discharge mowers, so they spread clippings evenly across the rear of the deck. This gives the clean look of a mulched lawn without requiring extra power to chop up clippings. High and low lift blades are available, letting you choose between a better finish or better performance cutting thick vegetation.
The Turfkeeper has a constructed deck built using 10 gauge steel. The outer edge has 7 gauge side skirts extending almost 5 inches high to protect the deck from impacts. The shield on top of the deck is held on by a series of large knobs that can be unscrewed by hand. Take it off, and you have access to the sheaves, idler pulley and belt. The idler pulley and its post are both serviceable, extending the life of this attachment. The sheaves are cast iron. This metal has a rough surface that helps grip the belt, reducing wear from slippage.
The Turfkeeper is supported by a parallel frame with four caster wheels. This spreads out weight evenly, helping the deck track flat for an even cut. A front roller can be added to reduce scalping. The hitch frame has a built-in driveline holder that keeps the driveshaft off of the ground when it’s disconnected from the tractor.
Woods makes two versions of the Turfkeeper.
The TK60.20 has a cutting width of 60 inches, and a total width of 61 inches. It works with tractors that have 15 to 35 PTO HP. It can attach to a CAT 1 or limited CAT 1 hitch, and connect to the PTO using a CAT 2 driveline.
The TK72.20 has a cutting width of 72 inches and a total width of 73 inches. It works with tractors that have 20 to 35 PTO HP. Like the TK60.20, it works with CAT 1 and limited CAT 1 hitches, and uses a CAT 2 driveline.
Both models are CAT 1 quick hitch ready.
Woods guarantees the gearbox for three years, and the rest of this attachment for one year.
