Exmark has redesigned a wide-area, walk-behind mower: the Turf Tracer S-Series.
The 2015 model incorporates updates based on customer feedback, as well as an evaluation in the Exmark test lab.
One feature that customers asked Exmark not to change is the company’s Enhanced Control System (ECS), which helps reduce operator fatigue.
The company incorporated an electric clutch on the series, which simplifies the deck drive system and helps durability.
The electric clutch allows Exmark engineers to simplify the overall design of the series, which eliminates approximately 250 component parts compared to its predecessors.
The simplified design reduces maintenance and increases reliability, with easier belt changes courtesy of a revised belt shield design. The company also rerouted hydraulic hoses on the model to maximize cooling and keep the mower cleaner overall.
An additional structure to the engine deck and tank was developed to lower the machine’s center of gravity.
The series utilizes new materials, including a discharge chute and abrasion resistant metal in the front deck height adjusters.
An hour meter is standard for all series models to help track maintenance intervals.
A choice of 36-, 48- or 52-inch UltraCut Series 3 cutting decks are available with the series.
This 5-inch deep, fully welded deck complements the seven-gauge steel deck reinforcements.
A number of engine options are available for the mower, including the Kohler PCV680 EFI-Propane powerplant, as well as a variety of Kawasaki engine options, two of which are CARB compliant.
