The cast iron spindle housings feature a massive 9 inch (22.9 cm) diameter base and eight-bolt mounting pattern that spread impact loads across a broader area of the robust deck shell. Combine that with the high-efficiency, tapered roller bearings that offer greater durability than spindles that use ball bearings. The result is greater stability and strength, providing longer deck and spindle life.
A Rollover Protection System (ROPS), complete with seat belt, comes standard for operator protection in the case of accidental rollovers and tipovers. In situations where sufficient vertical clearance is not available, such as loading on an enclosed trailer, the ROPS can be temporarily unlocked and folded down.
The deck shells are constructed from high-strength 7-gauge welded steel, for greater durability and long life.
The high-strength one-quarter inch (6 mm) thick heat-treated alloy steel blades resist flexing and abrasive wear. The result is a crisp cut time after time.
The discharge deflector on the 72" (183 cm) side discharge and 60" (152 cm) side discharge decks is constructed of durable 5/16" (8 mm) thick rubber and allows for close trimming without damaging chute or landscape structures. Patent-pending design provides exceptional dispersion.
