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.
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.
The torque converter and transaxle design delivers 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.

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 flotation tires are inflated to a low 6 psi (41.4 kPa) to minimize ground compaction. Two tire treads are offered:
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.
All instrumentation and operator controls are located on the front dash for ease of use and premium visibility. These include:
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.
