Heavy-duty hydraulic drive system includes dual 16cc Hydro-Gear pumps, and Hydro-Gear (27hp models) or Ross wheel motors (29hp and larger models) for reliable, Zero Turn maneuverability. Hydro-Gear BDP-16A (16cc) hydraulic pumps provide smooth, positive and reliable power to the drive wheels. Extra large input bearing, input shaft and internal components add to reliability and performance. Built-in pressure relief valves reduce internal pressure spikes and add to pump life. 29hp and larger models feature a cooling fan mounted directly to the pumps providing additional cooling for added pump life.
Auxiliary hydraulic oil coolers keep oil temperatures within a safe operating level and adds to hydraulic system component life.
12 MPH (29hp and larger models) or 10.5 MPH (27hp models) forward speeds and 5 MPH reverse speeds keep productivity at a maximum.
Driveshaft driven cutter deck eliminates belt slip and provides increased reliability and longevity compared to a belt drive system.
Heavy-duty blade drive spindles provide reliable performance season after season. The Scag spindle easily handles the high horsepower and torque requirements of this powerful mower. Three year limited warranty.
Choose a 52" or 61" Velocity Plus™ cutter deck, or 72" Advantage deck. Match that with a 27hp Kohler; 27hp or 29hp liquid-cooled Kawasaki engine; or 35hp Briggs Vanguard air-cooled or liquid-cooled V-twin engine.
