Features

KUBOTA MAXTORQUE™ DIESEL
1261 cc, 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled Kubota MaxTorque™ diesel engine with horizontal crankshaft and pressure lube for smooth, reliable operation

DESIGN-MATCHED G2 TRANSMISSION
Rugged G2 transmission with auxiliary cooling fans, HydroGear variable displacement 21 cc piston-type pumps and high-torque Parker wheel motors
CoolFan™ hydro cooling system with 7-micron absolute filter for cooling efficiency
Delivers smooth response and requires less maintenance, with industry-leading 1,000-hour fluid change interval

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

Sentry™ spindle guards shield spindle housing and seal lower bearings from fiber wrap and dirt ingestion

HYDRAULIC HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Hydraulic Height Adjustment for MidMount DuraMax™ decks 61-inches and larger allows operators to raise and lower cutting height at infinitely variable settings with toggle switch control. Standard on 400 Series models.

WARRANTY
Commercial Use: 3-year unlimited hours; limited warranty covering parts and labor.
Residential Use: 4-year or 800-hour (whichever comes first); limited warranty covering parts and labor.

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

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

MINIMAL MAINTENANCE
Fewer than 10 grease points and easy top-side access to belts and filters
1,000-hour transmission fluid change intervals
Self-tensioning belts minimize cost and labor on routine maintenance

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 speeds
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.

Roomy, iso-mounted, shock-absorbing footrest

VIGILANT OPERATOR PRESENCE SYSTEM™
Standard, low profile Roll-over Protection System (ROPS) structure 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

HIGH TEMPERATURE CLUTCH CUT OUT
Equipped with a High Temperature Clutch Cut-Out that automatically disengages the PTO if engine temperature reaches a certain point to prevent engine damage
