Large hilly areas are no problem to clear and maintain, especially if you need to get the job done faster in tight spots where your garden tractor can't access. The Pro XL 30-16.5 ES from DR will give you more power, a wider cut and power steering.
The unstoppable DR Pro XL 30-16.5 ES field and brush mower has a new power steering function; with just a squeeze of the brake on one side, the machine will pivot effortlessly around that wheel, making it easier to navigate the machine around trees, or obstacles or to make a 180 degree turn at the end of the row. Best of all, this model also includes independent disc brakes on each wheel so you can feather the uphill brake on side slopes to improve the machine's tracking and traction.
The 500cc Briggs & Stratton engine steps you up to a Professional Series engine so the mower will easily handle the extra torque load over the long haul. With its full pressure oil pump, you can mow with ease on slopes up to 20 degrees in gradient and be assured of plenty of good lubrication for the legendary Briggs & Stratton engine, without the risk of oil or fuel starvation. The engine, with cast iron cylinder sleeve and overhead valve, also gives you the convenience of turn-key starting so you never have to leave the operator's position to fire up or stop the machine. The 500cc displacement also provides that extra power needed to cut through saplings up to 2½ inches thick. The DR Pro XL 30-16.5 ES has the capacity to also cut 8 foot tall weeds and brush and 6 foot high grass.
Equipped with a 30" deck, it is wide enough for effective clearing but is still very manoeuvrable. The deck on the field and brush mower pivots from side to side, allowing you to follow the contours of tough terrain. This feature helps to avoid scalping the surface, while keeping the weight of the machine on its drive wheels to improve traction. Each tyre features superior lugged treads and is filled with one pint of sealant, making the tyres highly resistant to puncture from sharp sticks, stubble, glass and even nails.
All the operating functions for the machine are located on the control panel or on the hand grips. They are designed to optimise operator comfort with everything at your fingertips, including electric start, operator presence, throttle, gear shift, blade engagement and brakes. The machine features an electric clutch, high quality Peerless transaxle and 3 forward speeds plus reverse.
Why not turn your field and brush mower into a four-season workhorse? DR has designed its mower with a unique coupling system that makes it easy to add versatile attachments within minutes (see related items below). Just slide off the brush deck and slide the attachment onto the power unit shaft, slip the belt over the attachment's drive pulley and lock the attachment in place with a locking pin.
The new DR field and brush mower is the first redesign in over 10 years and, following its launch in America two years ago, it has become the most successful range in the company's history, maintaining its position as the best-selling bruh mower in the USA for over 25 years. Busting tough brush is one thing, withstanding years of abuse is another - DR field and brush mowers deliver on both counts.
