Deere Introduces "Flip Up" Zero Turn Riding Mower
The entire hood - including the seat - is built as a one-piece unit that can be flipped up for access to the engine and drive components. The deck also flips up 90 degrees for easy maintenance and access to blades.
The rig is powered by a gas engine and is available in 20 and 25 hp models. A company dealer told FARM SHOW that diesel engines may be available by next year. Decks are available in 48, 54, and 60-in. widths.
The mower has a low center of gravity for stability on hillsides and has superior traction, says the company. Its short overall length - 54 in. without the mower - provides great maneuverability in tight areas.
Sells for $8,000 to $9,000.
