Whether your job is Golf / Muni / Sprots Turf / Landscaping / Flatwork / Hardscape / Irrigation, etc., the Next Gen 18” Hydro-Drive Sod Cutter is easy to operate and comfortable to use with variable ground speeds – forward & reverse – and intuitive controls.
All new from the ground up, this unit is built upon the most rugged foundation in the industry with a newly designed superstructure frame featuring 50 more pounds of steel and supports a robust new drive and cut system.
The machine’s new heavy-duty gear box and cutting system include oversized sealed bearings, tight shaft mounted eccentrics and a new one-inch lateral stability bar – all designed to perform in the industry’s most rugged conditions providing the next level in durability.
The Next Gen Hydro-Drive Sod Cutter now features the popular variable speed fingertip control in both forward and reverse, similar to the innovative Billy Goat hydro-drive overseeder and brush cutter controls – for consistent feel, simple operation and reliability through the hydro-drive family.
Compared to multiple settings on other machines, the SC181H features the easiest to use "Set and Forget™ blade depth adjustment to 2.5" with a single lever from the operator station. The unit comes standard with a rear caster wheel for curved cuts and locks for straight cutting and handle isolation mounts absorb vibration for smooth, fatigue-free operation. Other user-friendly features include an hour meter, heavy-duty front bumper bar and six convenient tie-down points.
50% thicker 3/8” steel substructure and a ½” thick steel lateral support reinforces frame rigidity.
