Groundmaster 120

I recently bought a used Toro 120. It's a 5 year old mower with 495 hours. It rides real rough, but I bought it at a steal. Is there anything that can be done to smooth the ride out?

Rides rough as in bouncing off the seat rough or the hydros pull to the left or right rough? As for the bouncing you can put a suspension seat on there and thats all I know of without knowing how bad your problem is.

i have a 118 and 120 groundsmaster. if you dont have a susp. seat on it get one, the standard bucket seat will kill you also check your tires they are to be run with 15 psi .

I had a 118 with a suspension seat, but it didn't seem to help things, the mower would still beat the life out of you. I still use this mower every week because I sold it to a friend and I service his lawn with this machine.

Go hard, go fast, or go home

I have a 1995 model with 600 hours on it Just replaced it with Hustler Z. Runs great. 20 hp kohler. Got it for sale. Your right, rough rider but performs well.
