Kubota has introduced a new version of its G261 ride-on mower designed to offer productivity and convenience where collection is not required.
The G261 RD is available with a 1.2m (48in) rear discharge rotary deck with optional mulching kit and has a travel speed up to 19kph -the fastest in the industry - giving high outputs in a variety of amenity applications including parks, sportsfields and open spaces.
Powered by a 25hp Kubota Stage V engine, the G261 RD has a new hydrostatic transmission with cruise control, offering extra traction and grip, plus a differential lock for ease of operation and confident performance on sloping terrain.
An electromagnetic pto clutch makes for improved transmission of power and smooth engagement of the deck; for further ease of use, independent height of cut control gives mowing height selection from 25-102mm.
The rear discharge deck has been adapted from Kubota's well-regarded BX compact tractor and thus has a very strong and robust design. Versatility is added with the option of a mulching kit - the G261 RD can handle lush, long grass in rear discharge format, or give a really clean finish on shorter grass, mulching the clippings and returning valuable organic matter to the soil.
Operator comfort is afforded by a generous platform with easy access and folding ROPS for work under trees or in other height restricted areas, and access for maintenance is improved with a one-piece bonnet.
Delivering high workrates yet capable of accessing restricted sites such as play areas and gardens via a 4ft gate, the G261 RD is an ideal mowing solution for businesses needing a versatile, capable ride-on mower.
It is offered alongside the recently-launched G261 which is available with low and high dump grass collectors, and further enhances Kubota's range of purpose-designed, operator-focused professional mowing equipment.
The G261 RD will be available from Kubota dealers in October.
