Double tap to zoom



  • Redesigned direct drivetrain eliminates the gearbox, for improved performance, durability, and reliability.
  • Triple bidirectional blade design of 19.1-mm (0.75)-thick high-grade steel helps stabilize balance, for smooth operation and increased cutting efficiency.
  • Optional new pressure gauge is highly visible, allowing easy monitoring of blade capacities to prevent overheating and overloading.
  • Optional new under-mounted front steel wheels provide even cuts, extend blade wear life by keeping it off the ground, and prevent scalping.
