Features

Features & Benefits

  • HEAVY-DUTY DECK: Extra-deep, 5.5-inch deck is fabricated from heavy-gauge formed steel with a reinforced anvil edge. Specially designed cutting chambers enhance airflow for better cut quality. Deck easily converts from side discharge to optional Down Discharge™ mulching or PowerVac™ collection. Sentry™ spindles with massive, 8-inch flanges anchored in a 6-bolt pattern, spread the force of impact for greater strength. Spindle planes are fabricated from double-layered formed steel laminate and combine with the spindles to form a triple-strength deck to keep blades level and deliver a high-quality cut. Sentry™ spindle guards shield spindle housing and seal lower bearings from fiber wrap and dirt ingestion.
  • VIGILANT OPERATOR PRESENCE SYSTEM™: Standard, low profile operator protection structure (OPS) with an adjustable seatbelt. Dampened steering levers that return to neutral from forward and reverse. Interlock switches that shut down the engine when the operator leaves the seat while PTO is engaged or levers are in drive position.
  • B&S COMMERCIAL TURF ENGINE: 724 cc (44.2 cu. in.) Commercial Turf, V-Twin, OHV engine. Heavy-duty components enhance power and reliability. Five-step, Integrated Cyclonic Air Management System for cleaner performance. Extended maintenance intervals. Three-year limited commercial engine manufacturer warranty (see dealer for details).
  • DESIGN-MATCHED TRANSMISSION: Design-matched, fully hydraulic Parker HT Series integrated pump-and-wheel-motor transmissions with in-line cooling fans and fine-particle filtration. No power-robbing gearbox or other wear parts for longer service life. Provides best-in-class transmission fluid change interval with no break-in period, reducing costs and maintenance time.
  • SHOCK IMPACT REDUCTION SYSTEM™ (SIRS™): Unrivaled comfort with iso-mounted Ultimate Suspension Ride™ scuff-resistant, Cordura®-covered, deep-cushioned, high-back seat with padded lumbar support and armrests. Roomy, iso-mounted, shock-absorbing footrest.
  • QUIKADJUST® DROP PIM HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT: Raise and lower the deck easily with foot pedal and drop pin for precision cutting heights between 1.0 and 5.0 inches.
  • REDUCED MAINTENANCE: Only two Access-Eze™ lubrication points cut maintenance time up to 95%. Self-tensioning belts minimize cost and labor on routine maintenance.
  • RUGGED CONSTRUCTION: Robotically-welded steel construction for long-lasting durability. Centered-bearing design provides greater load-bearing capacity to handle the weight of operator, fuel and high-capacity collector with reserve strength for curb shocks and weight shifts. Tough-as-nails powder-coated finish is fusion-bonded for chip and rust resistance.
  • ULTIMATE OPERATOR STATION™: The deep-cushioned, deluxe Premium Comfort Seat features a coil-spring suspension and padded lumbar support with sliding 2-inch fore and aft adjustment for all-day comfort. Iso-mounting eliminates vibration before it reaches the seat, and both padded seat and foldable armrests are covered in scuff-resistant, breathable CoolTemp Cordura® fabric, which dissipates heat and won’t tear or crack with extended use. Operational controls including throttle, ignition and push/pull PTO switches, choke, angled View-Eze™ console and adjustable cup holder are well positioned for visibility and ease of reach. One- or two-handed operation with ComfortReach™ adjustable Hydra-Smooth™ dual levers that automatically return to neutral from either forward or reverse position.
