Walk-Behind and Tow-Behind Models redesigned from the ground up.
Excitement is running at a fever pitch here at DR! That’s because we’ve just launched the 2016 line of DR Field and Brush Mowers, in time for the Fall season. You can get all the details on our website but here’s a rundown of the big changes:
Wider Cutting Decks. Customers can now choose among models with cutting widths of 26”, 30” or 34”. The newly redesigned decks have also been enclosed on three sides. The result is more aggressive mulching, the elimination of the windrows left by side discharge designs, and faster open-area mowing.
Power Steering. The 30” and 34” deck models are now equipped with Power Steering, which makes maneuvering their bigger frames easy. Power Steering is achieved with hand-operated disc brakes that are mounted on each wheel—when the operator brakes on one side, the mower pivots easily around that wheel. Even wide “one-eighty” turns at the end of a row of field grass can now be handled with ease.
Optional Attachments. DR’s 4-season attachments (42” lawn mower, Snow thrower, Chipper and Grader/Snow Blade) are now available on ALL walk-behind models, thanks to a simplified design scheme.
4-Wheel Design. DR engineers moved from their traditional 2-wheel design to a 4-wheel configuration that allows for greater stability and improved ability to follow the contours of uneven terrain. Additionally, the 4-wheel setup makes it possible to have the mowing deck reach outside the wheelbase…so it’s easy to mow right up against a fence line, outbuilding or other obstacle without leaving a lot of cleanup mowing.
“Floating” Decks. The mowing deck is suspended from the steel frame in a way that allows it to ride up and over the high spots on the ground. Unlike mowers with rigidly fixed decks, this allows the DR to go over rough terrain without getting “run aground” and with very little likelihood of scalping.
More Brush Cutting Power. The redesign of the frame and the reconfiguring of the deck create a geometry that translates into more brush cutting muscle. The new tow-behinds—with engines up to 20HP—can now take down 3” thick saplings, matching the legendary walk-behind models for pure brawn.
For years, customers have asked us for a large area tow-behind finish mower. Our brush mowers are built for reclaiming overgrown areas of your property. But once you’ve cleared land, if you’re going to mow it regularly (say, 3-4 times a year or more) you may want more of a lawn mower than a brush mower.
For Walk-Behind customers we’ve had a solution for some time—our 42” Lawn Attachment—that allows them to easily switch back and forth between lawn mowing and brush cutting.
Now, with our brand new DR Finish Mowers, we are have a great tow-behind mower for maintaining cleared property.
Built specifically for large lawns and fields where the growth doesn’t exceed two feet, DR Finish Mowers are available with either a 44” or 60” cut. They deliver a high-quality finish cut towed behind a riding mower, ATV or tractor. When used in tandem with traditional riding mowers (or zero-turns), the DR Finish Mower adds supplemental mowing width. As an example, the 60” DR Finish Mower paired with a typical 48” riding mower, can cut over 100” wide. Needless to say, mowing time can be cut dramatically with that kind of width.
