Free Floating Mower Deck: The Secret to Lawn Striping
Posted May 6, 2014 in Lawn Striping Videos
Simplicity® tractors are specifically designed for people who want to do more than just cut grass. Why is Simplicity the tractor of choice for lawn enthusiasts? Precision engineering, heavy-duty construction, advanced Briggs & Stratton® engines – but there’s one feature that’s coveted above all others by those who appreciate a beautiful lawn: the famous Simplicity Free Floating™ Mower Deck.
Other manufacturers hang their mower decks from the lawn tractor frame. As the tractor wheels negotiate hills and holes, so does the mower deck, regardless of the terrain under the blades – resulting in potential scalping and uneven cutting. Simplicity mower decks move independently from the lawn tractor for a vastly superior cut, and they ride on top of full-width rear rollers, which constantly move up and down, allowing the blades to maintain the precise cutting height selected by the operator. As the pivoting axle and the full-width rear rollers respond to changing yard contours, so does the mower deck. The result is less scalping or unevenness. When you add in Simplicity’s computer-optimized airflow and super-sharp blades, you get the best cut on the block.
And Simplicity’s unique mower deck can also give you something else – beautiful lawn striping effects. When the Simplicity full-width rear rollers pass over the freshly cut blades of grass, they bend them forward slightly, and when the sunlight reflects off of the bent grass, something magical happens: the grass in rows angled toward you appears darker in color, and the grass in rows angled away from you appears lighter. A striped lawn is a sure sign of a proud homeowner. So if you want your property to look its head-turning best, then invest in the very best mowing tractor: a Simplicity.
