Folding Rollover Protection System (ROPS) 3280

A Rollover Protection System (ROPS), complete with seat belt, comes standard for operator protection in the case of accidental rollovers and tipovers. In situations where sufficient vertical clearance is not available, such as loading on an enclosed trailer, the ROPS can be temporarily unlocked and folded down.

Adjustable Baffle

The patent-pending adjustable baffle design on the 72" (183 cm) Side Discharge and 60" (152 cm) Side Discharge allows operator to quickly fine tune cutting performance to meet changing turf conditions. The adjustable front baffle position is easily moved in a matter of seconds without any tools.

Industry's Toughest Spindle Assembly

The cast iron spindle housings feature a massive 9 inch (22.9 cm) diameter base and eight-bolt mounting pattern that spread impact loads across a broader area of the robust deck shell. Combine that with the high-efficiency, tapered roller bearings that offer greater durability than spindles that use ball bearings. The result is greater stability and strength, providing longer deck and spindle life.
