|Counter blade rotation on center and
|Spreads grass clippings more evenly.
Wing decks throw grass away from the rear deck.
Rear deck doesn't get covered up or bogged down by cut grass.
Prevents robbing tractor horsepower.
|5'-7" (1.7 m) Transport width||Meets most city/county codes for transport width.|
|6" (15 cm) Deck overlap||Eliminates skipping when going into a tight turn.|
|10'-11" (3.5 m) Cutting width
three 48" decks
|Sized right for golf courses, cities, schools.
Small decks give excellent flexibility.
|Sleek frame design, including single
beam hitch and compact deck overlap
|Design allows operator to make tighter turns without leaving windrows and skips.
AFM virtually becomes a zero turn mower. (Over-sized tires may not allow this.)
|Automatic transport wing locks||When wings are raised in the full transport position, the wings lock in place.
No need to get off the tractor to lock. Pull rope from tractor seat to un-lock.
|Optional Hydraulic Transport Locks||Transport locks can be released easily from the tractor seat while operating the;
same tractor control lever that folds and unfolds the mower decks.
Eliminates pulling a rope to release transport locks.
|18" Transport tires with tapered roller
|Transport tires offer smooth roading and less grass compaction.
Allows grass to stand up. Tapered roller bearings offer longevity.
|Removable transportation tire spindles||Allows a spindle to be replaced by simply removing one bolt.|
|Back wheels on side decks in line with transportation tires||Allows tighter turns without skips.|
|Zero turn radius||Sleek frame design allows operator to make tighter turns without leaving windrows or skips.
The AFM virtually becomes a Zero Turn Mower.
|Rigid rear side deck tires.||Rigid wheel yokes holds hills and slopes better.|
|10" Solid rubber deck tires||Solid rubber won't go flat.|
|Square tube gauge wheel arms||Gives the mower gauge wheel arms a great deal of "hidden" strength.|
|Low pivot points on deck||The lower the pivot points are to the ground, the more side to side swing,
allowing for excellent flotation from each deck.
|Deflectors built into mower decks||Safety features meet ANSI standards.
Many competitors use chains for protection.
Once chains are removed the unit does not meet ANSI specifications.
|Rear discharge||Even dispersal, discharged items are aimed downward.
No rear chains are needed, which tend to clump damp grass.
|Rounded front deck edges with no protruding skid shoe||Helps protect trees and other obstacles.|
|1/4" (6 mm) Front edge & all-welded seams||Provides extra durability.|
|Cat. 3 equal angle main driveline||Equal angle main driveline allows for tighter turns without harming U-joints in driveline.|
|Shear bolt protection||Guards against premature gearbox failure.
Protects mower deck spindles.
|Cat. 3 wing drivelines||Designed to withstand start-up torques.|
|ABS guards||No paint to scratch off, lighter weight, no rattling or rust.|
|Heavy gearbox mounts on center and side mower decks||Handles start-up torque better.|
|Gearbox Horsepower Rating||30-55 hp (22-41 kw)|
|Sealed for life blade spindle bearings||No blade spindles to grease means no guards to remove to grease blade spindles.|
|Middle spindle sits towards
the back of the mower deck.
|Uses less horsepower and allows material to escape the mower deck easier.
The discharge of material is more even. Design eliminates windrowing.
|Spring loaded idlers||Applies constant tension to belt to run efficiently.|
|High blade tip speed||Lifts grass up for a clean cut and efficient discharge of material.
Tip speed rates are as high or higher than the competition.
|Choice of Blade
Medium lift standard
Others available thru parts dept.
|Low Lift - Highly recommended in sandy soils where lifting isn’t crucial.
Disturbs the soil very little, allowing blades to wear longer.
Medium Lift - Medium suction for lifting grass.
Requires less horsepower than high lift.
High Lift - Greatest suction for lifting grass before cutting.
Can take higher horsepower in tall dense grass.
Not recommended in sandy soils.
Mulching - Perfect for leaf mulching.
