  • Engine (Kawasaki FS541V): V-Twin overhead valve design; Cast Iron Cylinder Sleeves; Pleated Style Air Filter; The FS-series provide higher compression ratio from the unique overhead valve design, improving performance and reliability. The V-twin design also reduces engine vibration and noise. The pleated air cleaner keeps debris from entering the intake and combustion chamber, increasing the walk-behind mower series uptime.
  • Transmission: Twin 10 cc Hydro-Gear Variable Displacement Pumps and Parker Wheel Motors; The dual lever precision hydro control reduces operator stress and fatigue; Two position damper allows for a more aggressive or less aggressive response from the controls. This adjustability allows less experienced operators to more accurately control the machine.
  • Heavy Duty Spindles and Wheel Bearings: Spindles and wheel bearings are designed for no maintenance; Sealed bearing prevents premature wear due to debris or lack of grease; Heavy duty bearings lower maintenance costs.
  • Discharge System: Flexible molded polymer discharge chute; The discharge chute’s structure disperses the clipping’s in a wider, higher angle; The discharge chute’s design creates less clumping of the clippings which keeps the grass healthier, and prevents the clippings from killing the grass.
  • Cut Height Adjustment - Deck Leveling: Deck has a slight upward tilt; Leveling is accomplished by adjusting spacers on front casters; The angle of attack created by proper deck leveling allows for the machine to operate at maximum efficiency; Deck leveling should be checked periodically.
  • Operator’s Station: The control panel is ergonomically designed to keep the operator in control; The control panel has the key switch to start the mower, engine throttle and choke, brake lever, speed adjustment, and the PTO switch; Simple control system that is comparable to many zero-turn riding mowers; Two position damper to adjust control effort.
  • Wide Stance and Low Center of Gravity: Wide drive tires that help put the power to the ground and keep the mower on track
  • Warner Mag Stop Electric Clutch: Heavy duty Clutch; Higher torque rating to prevent slippage and improve belt life.
  • Tracking Adjustment Turnbuckle: Simple system for adjusting the tracking to get machine to go straight; Wing nut to lock and turnbuckle to get precise adjustments.
