Rotary mowers for Ground and Greenkeeping

 

The demand for high-quality finish mowing often conflicts with tightening budgets, but within the Progressive rotary mowers for ground and greenkeeping, several models do meet that challenge. The mowers are designed to follow the ground conditions found in schoolyards, recreation areas, and golf courses (both fairways and roughs) and produce a high-quality finish cut. The total cost of operation is low, thanks in part to the use of a common utility tractor. On the one hand, this means a lower capital outlay than a self-contained mower. And on top of that, it implies an increased utilization of the existing tractor. When you are not mowing, the mower can be quickly disconnected from the tractor, increasing the utilization of the tractor for other tasks. Similarly, reconnection is quick and simple. Now that’s value!

Pro-Flex 120 Contour Rough/Finishing Mower

Field Proven: Quality, Dependability, and Value

The Pro-Flex 120 has become the ‘go-to’ contour/rough mower due to its reliability and versatility. With 5 independent floating decks, the Pro-Flex 120 will easily follow contour changes that are found on golf courses and campuses, producing a uniform quality cut that is demanded by both Superintendents and members alike.

Unlike a self-contained, ride-on rough mower, the Pro-Flex 120 allows for increased equipment utilization as the tractor can be used for other tasks. Additionally, the required horsepower for the utility tractor connected to a Pro-Flex 120 is about half of what a stage IV self-contained mower requires. This directly translates to a large fuel cost saving, year after year, and a lower total cost of ownership!

The Pro-Flex 120 has several standard features that are important on a pull-behind contour mower, but are only available from Progressive! Features such as: a shock absorber on each independent, floating deck to minimize deck bounce; a unique 4-way rotating clevis that allows the tractor and mower to traverse uneven terrain without affecting one another; and a conventional style drawbar design that makes turning and reversing feel very familiar to an operator. Utilizing the tractor for other tasks is a key advantage so we made connecting a Pro-Flex 120 to the tractor easy, thanks to an adjustable clevis, a low tongue weight, and an auto-lock PTO shaft.

Your choice! The Pro-Flex 120 is available in either traditional RED or, for a ‘packaged look’ it is also available in industry GREEN paint.

Contour mowing: The Pro-Flex 120 has five individual mowing decks that produce a superior cut while conforming to contour changes. Each deck floats independently up and down, fore and aft, as well as side to side of the adjacent deck, for superior cut quality. Each deck is equipped with two anti-scalp rollers.

Ideal for making a stepped or a transition first-cut: As cut height is easily set on each deck of the Pro-Flex 120, Superintendents have the option of setting the Pro-Flex 120 to make a stepped or a transition first-cut along the outer edge of the fairway. This provides an easy way to help speed play, something competing contour mowers cannot do!

Pro Lift-N-Turn™ An industry exclusive feature – not found on other contour mowers!
Pro Lift-N-Turn™ allows the decks to be raised slightly off the ground with the PTO still engaged. Crossing a cart path or other minor obstacles has never been easier. When initially engaging the PTO, the operator can lift the decks so the blades are above the uncut grass, reducing stress on the complete drivetrain.

Smart by design: The standard equipment automatic wing lock valve simplifies operation and makes operating the Pro-Flex 120 easier than ever before! For an even cut, a 4-way rotating clevis allows the tractor and mower to traverse uneven terrain without affecting one another. A full transport frame provides the ability to mow in a controlled manner even while backing up. For even clipping dispersal each of the five decks has its own discharge chute. A mulching kit is available making the Pro-Flex 120 ideal for fall leaf clean-up.

Rubber Damped, Automatic Belt Tensioners A simple belt drive system transfers power from the input PTO to the 5 floating mower decks. Belt tension for each drive belt is set by an automatic rubber damped tensioner that maintains the correct belt tension. This extends belt life and ensures a positive drive as the Pro-Flex 120 flexes over changing contours.

Easy Routine Maintenance: Daily greasing is eliminated, thanks to: automatic belt tensioners, maintenance-free blade spindles and 100-hour PTO shaft greasing intervals that are standard equipment! Gone is the fear that a missed service point by un­familiar maintenance personnel will render the mower out of service and put grounds
main­tenance behind schedule.

SDR-65 Roller Finishing Mower

High Performance – Full Featured

The Progressive SDR-65 mowers are a three-point hitch version of the popular tri-deck TDR-15 and TDR-22 mowers and they utilize many of the same components. Not to be confused with other, light-duty three-point hitch mowers that are available, both the SDR-65 and SDR-90 have 15 cm (6”) diameter rollers on both the front and rear across the full width of the deck. Ideal for smaller mowing jobs where a quality cut is mandatory, the SDR’s rollers allow you to cut as low as 1,3 cm, while simultaneously striping and rolling the mowing surface. To minimize service requirements, both models are equipped with field-proven maintenance-free blade spindles and HEX-Drive Roller-End bearings.

If a new mower is in your plans to maintain your sports complex, park, or other areas where a quality after-cut appearance is mandatory, consider the 1,65 m (65”) wide SDR-65. If a wider cutting swath for a seedbed or small test plot is required, consider the 2,28 m (90”) wide SDR-90.

Progressive’s SDR mowers are another example of the ingenuity and quality that goes into producing durable, reliable rotary finishing mowers that are easy to maintain.

Easy height adjustment: Infinite cutting height adjustment from 1,3 to 10 cm (½” to 4”). Using the supplied tool the mower cutting height can be adjusted quickly for multiple mowing applications. The SDR-90 can be fitted with either one-piece fixed blades or the replaceable tip Pro-Ez II blade system.

Full-width rollers: Each 15 cm (6”) diameter, thick wall rollers with ‘Hex’ shaft ends is supported by two 3 cm (1¼”) ductile iron flange bearings. A cable wiper is positioned by each roller to eliminate grass build-up in damp mowing conditions.

Heavy duty lift link: Designed with a standardized Cat 1, 3 point lift linkage reinforced, heavy-duty mounting points on the mower deck for long life (may need weights on front of the tractor)

Simpler Maintenance = Lower Cost: Maintenance Free Blade Spindles and sealed roller end bearings are used to lower both the cost and time spent on routine maintenance. They also provide peace of mind that a missed daily greasing won’t render the mower out of service.
