48-IN. (122-CM) FABRICATED MOWER DECK IS MADE FROM 7-GAUGE, 0.179-IN. (4.6-MM) STEEL FOR RELIABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

A powerful vacuum effect is created by the deck's unique air-flow design, which pulls more grass upright so that the blades can cut more evenly
48-in. to 61-in. (122-cm to 155-cm) decks come standard with an adjustable striping flap to enhance the after-cut appearance
LARGE OPERATOR PLATFORM & QUALITY LEANING PAD ENHANCE OPERATOR COMFORT
The large operator platform is cushioned to absorb shock to give the operator a smooth and comfortable ride.
A high-quality leaning pad is provided for operator comfort and to insulate the operator from heat given off by the machine.
A storage pocket on the battery box provides a convenient place for the operator to store a cell phone, gloves, etc.
Control levers are covered with cushioning material for operator comfort. Two stationary reference bars are provided for operator comfort and convenience:
Front reference bar is included to control speed and reduce fatigue from control lever operation.
Rear reference bar is included to make reverse operation easy while maintaining operator confidence.
CONTROLS ARE EASY TO LOCATE & USE FOR OPERATOR COMFORT & PRODUCTIVITY
Controls are color coded and logically placed to make them easy for the operator to find and use
Ground speed and direction are easily controlled by moving the two hand-lever hydrostatic drive controls forward or reverse
A positive neutral-lock position for the levers provides added safety
Two stationary reference bars are provided for operator convenience and security
Front reference bar is included to control speed and reduce fatigue from control lever operation
Rear reference bar is included to make reverse operation easy while maintaining operator confidence

COMPACT DESIGN FOR EASY HAULING & EXCELLENT MANEUVERABILITY
The compact design allows the QuikTrak to operate in tighter areas that a larger machine cannot
With the compact design of QuikTrak Mowers, less space is required on a truck or trailer - which can mean there is room for an extra mower, resulting in less time on property, saving time and money.
FRAME IS COMPACT AND DURABLE FOR PRODUCTIVITY & LONG LIFE
QuikTrak Mowers are designed around a heavy-duty formed and welded steel frame for strength and reliability
More-rounded corners contribute to a clean, attractive appearance
Greater strength results from eliminating sharp angles where peak loads can cause failure
Large 11x4.50-6 flat-free front caster wheels and large 18x8.50-10 (636M) or 18x10.50-10 (648M and 652M) 4-ply rear drive wheels provide a smoother ride
HYDROSTATIC DRIVE SYSTEM IS RELIABLE & EASY TO USE
QuikTrak Mowers use a heavy-duty hydrostatic pump and wheel-motor drive system
Heavy-duty components stand up to the stress of commercial use
Individual pump and wheel motor design allows placement of these heavy components low in the vehicle for a low center of gravity and excellent hillside stability
SAFETY FEATURES ARE BUILT-IN TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR & BYSTANDERS
Start circuit requirements
A high-quality polyethylene mower-discharge deflector
Operator station designed to allow fast exit
