B&S CXi Engine

  • 724 cc (44.2 cu. in.) B&S CXi engine, 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 HTE 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

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

QuikAjust® Drop Pin 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.

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

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

    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.

    • 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
