The operator station is designed for comfort and all controls are located for convenient and easy use. Using the tractor is more pleasant, less tiring, and safer.
Wide footrest areas with non-slip, anti-vibration rubber footpads are provided for operator comfort and safety.
A deluxe steering wheel provides greater operator comfort and control. Steering wheel diameter is:
Controls are located for convenient and easy use. They are color-coded for better visibility. The ignition switch is on the dash for starting ease.
A comfortable operator seat has a higher back for extra operator comfort. A comfortable seat is especially helpful when operating the tractor for extended periods of time. Seat-back height is:
Seat can be tilted forward for protection from the elements and to provide easy access to the fuel tank.
Seat springs absorb bumps to give a smoother ride.
Seat can be easily adjusted forward or backward while in the seat, with seat travel of 140 mm (5.5 in.) and 10 different positions.
Beverage holder and storage compartment is found on the right-side fender for added value and operator convenience:
The large-capacity, rear-mounted hopper makes collecting grass and leaves easy. The rear design allows excellent maneuverability when mowing.
The 300-L (8.5-bu) capacity hopper holds a lot of material for longer mowing times between emptying. Emptying the hopper is easily accomplished from the operator’s seat.
The durable plastic bottom will last a long time, even when operating in rougher conditions.
When the hopper is full, a light on the dash will come on and an audible alarm will sound, to alert the operator to disengage the power take-off (PTO).
When the hopper is removed, a safety interlock switch will prevent the mower deck from operating unless the rear deflector or mulch plug is installed, however the engine will run and the tractor will operate so the rear hitch can be used.
The hopper is emptied by pulling up, then forward, on the hopper handle. Using the leverage of the long handle, pull forward hard enough to overcome the spring-loaded hopper latch and rotate the hopper upward.
The hopper latch is easily adjustable for operator preference and conditions:
The hopper is easily removed from the tractor by using the rear handle to raise the back of the hopper 25 degrees, or about 13 cm (5 in.), and then using both handles to lift the hopper vertically out of the notches in the mounting brackets:
When the hopper is removed from the tractor, it allows use of additional tractor features including:
A large-displacement 656-cc V-twin engine has plenty of power and torque to handle tough mowing conditions:
Engine fuel filter and oil filter help to give trouble-free operation. Both are conveniently located for easy service.
A no-tools engine-oil drain valve is easy to access and use when changing the oil.
The innovative design of the 92-cm (36-in.) Edge™ Rear-Discharge Deck combines the best features for reliability and superior performance when mowing and collecting grass and leaves:
The underside of the mower deck is contoured and free of obstructions to ensure optimum cutting and bagging performance:
Optional mulch plug (BG20698) easily installs in place of hopper:
Exceptional mowing and bagging performance begins with the deep-deck design of the mower. The deck is 100-mm (3.9-in.) deep at the front and grows even deeper from front to rear to create a smooth transition into the chute.
A wash port is provided on the mower deck. It can be used to supply water to the underside of the mower deck so it can be easily cleaned after use:
A hose-end adapter for the appropriate water hose to be used can be purchased locally for connection to the wash port.
Optional rear deflector (BG20822) easily installs in place of hopper:
The solid one-piece frame is constructed of 2.7-mm (0.105-in.) steel:
