The SLF-1880 weighs 2,200 pounds and reduces turf compaction, allowing for healthier turf, promoting better growth, and providing solid performance in wet or dry conditions. The mower features a vertical lift-arm mechanism that allows the reels to follow uneven, sloped, or undulating terrain without scalping or sacrificing quality of cut. The unit is equipped with individual 18-inch wide reels that produce an 80-inch cut. The mower is available in gas and diesel, two- and four-wheel drive models. The FlashAttach reel-mounting system allows simpler, quicker reel removal for maintenance. The mower also is filled with GreensCare biodegradable hydraulic fluids, an environmentally responsible alternative to competing synthetic and petroleum-based fluids.
