Tractor and groundcare specialists Kubota has introduced a new Lastec 100-inch flex mower deck available exclusively on its high performance and market leading F3680 Out Front Mower.
The F3680 is the most powerful out front mower in the Kubota range. With a 36hp engine and Auto-Assist 4WD as standard, it is designed to offer maximum manoeuvrability and versatility whilst being able to tackle the most demanding commercial mowing operations. The F3680 also includes a host of features to increase operator comfort and reduce fatigue, such as hydrostatic power steering, adjustable seat and conveniently positioned operator levers.
Dave Roberts, Kubota's General Manager, commented: "The introduction of this new mower deck is part of Kubota's ongoing commitment to add value to the product and the service we provide our customers to ensure they can complete their work efficiently and effectively.
"The patented Lastec design integrates five 21-inch mower pans, uniquely pinned together and belt driven, giving a 100-inch wide cut with the precision of a 21-inch walk-behind mower. For turf professionals, this means a larger area can be cut in a shorter space of time, saving them valuable time and money."
The 100-inch mower deck, called the 100 EFK, is only available on Kubota's F3680 as this model has the ideal horsepower requirements for a 100-inch cut width. The solution has been designed so all the deck pans articulate independently 15 degrees up and down to follow the ground contour with walk-mower precision which reduces the possibilities of scalping.
Other features include hydraulically fold up outer pans to minimize width for transport and an adjustable deck height ranging from 1-inch to 4 ¾ inches with ¼ inch increments with no tooling requirement. Adjustable internal baffling also allows for standard rear discharge or mulch to optimise performance in a variety of positions.
