You told us you wanted quicker and easier adjustments in a walk greens mower as well as easier ways to adjust height of cut and change the front roller. And that’s what you’ll find in SL-Series Walking Greens Mowers. Dual-traction rear drums powered by an external differential drive delivers even power distribution for straighter striping. A forward-mounted pivot point reduces operator influence over the cutting plane of the mower. Hand adjustment knobs allow for easy, fine adjustment of bedknife-to-reel. And speed link bar connecting the quick adjust towers, so adjustment to height of cut can be carried out from just one side of the machine.
Controls move forwards to allow for easy and efficient operation, and an integrated operator presence bail allows the machine to automatically stop and disengage the reel when the bail is released. Loop-style handlebar enhances operator comfort.
A narrow front-roller-to-rear-drum base increases performance in undulations, minimizing scalping and improving cut quality.
The rear drum is powered by an external differential drive. This design provides equal power to both rolls for the straightest possible tracking.
Stays engaged in the turf, minimizing thatch build up and maintaining a consistent height of cut.
Powered by a 2009 CARB-compliant GX120 Honda 4-cycle engine. And patented rubber engine isolators reduce the amount of engine vibration transferred to the frame, enhancing operator comfort.
Bedknife-to-reel and height-of-cut adjustments are made easy by simply turning the adjuster towers by hand for precise control and fine tuning.
The speed link bar connects the left and right adjustment towers once the operator has set the height of cut. At each quick adjust height tower the speed link bar is positioned to connect them. Height of cut adjustments can now be made in seconds from either side adjusting just one side only.
