Reduced Maintenance

  • Only two Access-Eze™ lubrication points cut maintenance time up to 95%
  • Self-tensioning belts minimize cost and labor on routine maintenance

 

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

 

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

 

Ultimate Operator Station™

  • ComfortZone™ seat eliminates jostles and jolts with coil-spring suspension and a fully padded, high-back seat, padded armrests and variable density foam cushion. Iso-mounting smooths the ride, erases fatigue and keeps the operator comfortably in control at faster mowing speed
  • Operational controls including throttle, choke and 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.

 

PowerFold® Electric Deck Lift

  • Standard on all FrontMount™ DuraMax® decks, PowerFold® is the zero-turn mower industry's first electric deck lift (introduced in 2004).
  • PowerFold® rotates the deck nearly 90 degrees to provide easy access to the underside of the deck for simplified maintenance and mulching package installation, plus space-saving portability and storage.
  • The feature also adjusts cutting height between 2.0 and 4.5 inches and controls deck lift functions using a single switch.


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
