Commercial Walk Behind Mowers

M & R Series Commercial Walk-behind Mowers

When it comes to the controls on the M & R Series professional walk-behind mowers, your hands were what we thought of first. That's what led us to design a control layout that your hands are really going to enjoy.

It’s in your hands.

From the start, the goal was simple: ergonomic controls. And so we made sure the proximity of one control to another was just right. Also hand position for minimum fatigue was another consideration. All for ease of use and smooth operation

Goodbye gear, hello hydrostatic

Both the M & R Series feature hydrostatic drive systems that provide positive reverse for more power and smoother operation. The infinite ground speed adjustments on both units enables a smoother transition from one speed to another. 

Go ahead and jump.

And for sheer curb climbing ability, you just can’t beat our R Series walk-behinds. With 8 and a half inches of ground clearance and positive reverse performance, the four R Series units bring even the most daunting curbs to their knees.
