Exmark Mowers: Measuring Mower Productivity

Measuring Mower Productivity

The productivity of your Exmark mower matters. As a landscape professional, you know how important speed and efficiency is when it comes to getting yard work done quickly. You also know speed isn’t the only important factor when selecting a new mower. Comfort, durability, cut quality, and ergonomics, among others, are important as well.

Business owners know time is money. By choosing the right mower(s) you can save both time and money. It’s important to remember that the investment you make in a new mower doesn’t impact your bottom line as much as other operational costs.

Exmark’s legendary durability, high performance and low maintenance will save you time and money. Additionally, reduced downtime, overall operating costs and resale value make choosing an Exmark a wise business decision. Your Exmark will allow you to concentrate on customer service and sales instead of mower repair bills so you can continue to build your business and keep valuable customers.

Exmark mowers are durable, efficient and reliable, and can increase your profits by:

  • Reduced downtime losses
  • Lowered repair costs
  • Higher resale value
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Increased employee productivity

Downtime, maintenance and labor account for 75% of production costs for landscape professionals.

Exmark Mowers: Measuring Mower Productivity

 

There are a lot of variables that can impact the productivity of your Exmark, but it’s easy to determine the potential of your mower if you know the cutting/application width and the speed that it’s designed to run.

Exmark.com offers productivity charts for mowers that help determine a mower’s potential, or the gains you can expect from a new mower.

Exmark publishes productivity numbers at two efficiency levels: 100% and 80%. This is because most landscape professionals operate at closer to 80% efficiency. You can’t mow at full speed all the time and the 80% figure more accurately reflects the everyday reality.

Buyer’s Guide to Cub Cadet PRO Z 972 SD

Cub Cadet PRO Z 972 SD zero turn rider is part of the PRO Series from Cub Cadet. PRO Series mowers deliver top-quality cut at high speeds, impressive steering options for precision and hillside control, and maintenance-free spindle assemblies with sealed bearings for less downtime.

The Cub Cadet PRO Z 972 SD is a dual wheel commercial zero turn. This mower is tested and approved to mow on inclines as steep as 25 degrees. This machine features reinforced hydraulic pumps and bracing to support the side load, and a 1000 cc Kawasaki engine.

Cub Cadet PRO Z 972 SD zero turn rider boasts a 72 inch mower deck with top, bottom and side reinforcements and the Cub steering system technology. The Synchro Steer Technology really helps make the whole package work. With a typical lap bar, your wheels are going to want to dive down the hill. With a high-performance steering wheel with electronic power steering, this machine will dominate hillside mowing. You can also turn on the hill and still be safe.

The steering wheel zero turn option not only increases hillside stability, but helps you cover acres up to 10% faster.

Buyer’s Guide to Exmark Staris Stand On Mowers

Buyer’s Guide to Exmark Staris Stand On Mowers

Exmark Staris stand on mowers are designed to deliver the commercial performance, durability, and ease of service landscape professionals need to maximize productivity. Exmark reinvented their stand on mowers from the ground up.

Exmark engineers designed a mower optimized for a low center of gravity, increasing traction and maneuverability. The low engine position puts the operator weight onto the drive tires for improved hillside stability.

The Exmark Staris E series features 32, 36, and 44 inch UltraCut Series 3 cutting decks and Kawasaki V-twin commercial engines. The S series features 48, 52, and 60 inch UltraCut Series 4 cutting decks and a choice of a carbureted Kawasaki or Kohler EFI V-twin engine. The 32 inch deck is compact enough to fit through gates as small as 36 inches, making it possible to access more yards more quickly.

Exmark Staris stand on mowers are designed with a heavy-duty steel frame for durability. These mowers offer smooth control and can mow at speeds up to 10 mph. The ergonomically designed steering system includes an adjustable front reference bar that enables operators to lower the machines top speed.

To adjust the height of cut there is a single pin adjustment, so you can easily adjust that height as you go from property to property. The large, open platform makes it easy for operators to get on and off the Staris, and the non-slip rubber mat allows operators to easily change their position and stance.

Features and benefits:

  • Optimized frame design and caster wheel positioning for each cutting deck width provides a great quality of cut
  • Frame constructed from high-strength tubular steel
  • Flip-up cover gives operators tools-free access for routine maintenance and cleaning
  • Rear cover lifts and locks into place, allowing easy access to fill and change engine oil of hydro fluid
  • Hard hydraulic lines in the drive system reduce potential leak points and improve durability and hydro oil cooling
  • UltraCut side-discharge cutting decks can be used to mulch or bag with optional accessories

Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tires

Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tires

Unlike your typical pneumatic tire that becomes worn out or damaged over time, the Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tire is designed for zero turn riders and does not require any maintenance.

This tire is designed to perform like a pneumatic tire but is not air-filled. Once the tire is bolted on, there is no air pressure to maintain, and problems like unseated beads and flat tires are eliminated.

Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tire has a consistent hub height which helps ensure the mower deck delivers an even cut. The full-width poly-resin spokes provide unmatched lateral stability for side hill performance. The unique design of the spokes helps dampen the ride for increased operator comfort, even when maneuvering over curbs and bumps.

The Tread Wear Life of this tire should last 2 to 3 times longer than a standard tire. Additionally, you will never get flat tires again. Even if you pick up a nail or spike, that shouldn’t cause the rubber to rip apart.

Features and Benefits

  • Outstanding stability contributes to high machine productivity.
  • Heavy gauge steel hub is designed to fit on a variety of mowers.
  • Michelin’s proprietary Comp10 Cable forms a semi-rigid “shear beam” and allows the load to hang from the top.
  • Zero degree belts under the tread and proprietary design provide great lateral stiffness, and resists damage and absorbs impacts.
  • High strength, poly-resin spokes carry the load and absorb impacts, help dampen the ride, and provide an energy transfer that reduces pneumatic bounce.
  • Low contact pressure and low overall mass.
  • Designed specifically for difficult environments and conditions where vehicles are exposed to rugged roads, jagged terrain and other elements harmful to ordinary tires.
  • Low pressure contact patch helps provide unbeatable off-road traction.

Exmark Hydro Drive Life Extension Program and Hydraulic Oil Change Intervals

Exmark Hydro Drive Life Extension Program

We know lawn maintenance begins with a well-maintained lawn mower, which means you need to have a variety of tasks performed to keep your Exmark machine in the best condition possible. A major task is maintaining your machine’s hydro system. With proper preventative maintenance, the hydro system can deliver long term durability for the extent of the warranty coverage and beyond.

Exmark is expanding their Hydro Life Extension program which increases the hydro coverage guideline on your eligible units by having your dealer perform basic hydro maintenance and service requirements. You can ensure a long and trouble-free ownership experience with your hydro system.

Who Is Eligible for the Hydro Drive Life Extension Program?

All commercial or residential owners of Lazer E, S and X machines equipped with a hydraulic drive system with less than 300 hours at the time of the first service and owners of Exmark’s new Radius E, S and X series units with less than 100 hours at the time of the first service.

Visit Weingartz and we will perform the hydraulic services at the appropriate intervals for your Exmark machine (see below).

Lazer Z E-, S- and X-Series

  • Change the oil and filters on your hydro system five times during the extended hour coverage guideline.
  • These changes should occur at 250, 750, 1250, 1750, and 2250 hours plus or minus a 50 hour window.
  • Consider additional loads put on your unit with accessories like an UltraVac or if the unit is operated in hilly terrain. If these conditions are present, 50 hours should be deducted from the change interval for each of these situations that may exist.

Radius E- and S-Series

  • Change the oil and filters on your hydro system two times during the extended hour coverage guideline.
  • These changes should occur at 75 hours plus or minus 25 hours and 600 hours plus or minus 50 hours.
  • Consider additional loads put on your unit with accessories like an UltraVac or if the unit is operated in hilly terrain. If these conditions are present, 25 hours should be deducted from the first service and 50 hours be deducted from the second service interval for each of these situations that may exist.

Radius X-Series

  • Change the oil and filters on your hydro system three times during the extended hour coverage guideline.
  • These changes should occur at 75 hours plus or minus 25 hours, 600 hours plus or minus 50 hours and 1100 hours plus or minus 50 hours.
  • Consider additional loads put on your unit with accessories like an UltraVac or if the unit is operated in hilly terrain. If these conditions are present, 25 hours should be deducted from the first service and 50 hours be deducted from the second and third service interval for each of these situations that may exist.

You will be charged for a maximum of .5 hours of labor. In addition to the oil and filters, your out of pocket expense for being in the program is less than $200.00 for the labor (based on a $75.00 posted shop labor rate).

Benefits

Exmark will extend the warranty coverage guideline on the hydro drive systems for units registered after August 1, 2016 as follows:

  • Lazer E and S Series units from 1250 hours to 2500 hours.
  • Lazer X Series units from 1500 hours to 2500 hours.
  • Radius E Series units from 500 hours to 750 hours.
  • Radius S Series units from 750 hours to 1000 hours.
  • Radius X Series units from 1000 hours to 1500 hours.
  • Note: Exmark is extending the hour guideline and not your warranty coverage period.
  • Minimize the chance of a pre-mature non-warrantable failure to your hydro drive system.
  • Maximize the performance and life of your hydro drive system.
  • Greatly reduce your chances of costly downtime for non-warrantable repairs which means you increase your productivity and reduce your cost of ownership.

These machines are designed with a 54-inch-wide frame that allows you to access smaller spaces than larger machines and offers 360-degree visibility.

Toro Dingo TXL 2000 Compact Utility Loader Access

The compact utility loader design makes it easy for operators of different sizes to jump on and off the machine instead of climbing in and out of a cab.

Toro Dingo TXL 2000 Compact Utility Loader Features and Benefits

  • The Kubota D1803 Tier 4 Final with DOC (diesel oxidation catalyst) engine minimizes downtime with no regeneration required.

  • Attachments are specifically designed for these machines. They’re easy to put on or take off, just mount the accessory to the attachment plate on the unit, push the pins to the locked position and connect hydraulic lines (for powered attachments).

Buyer’s Guide to Exmark Radius Series Zero Turn Riders

Buyer's Guide to Exmark Radius Series Zero Turn Riders

Exmark Radius Series Zero Turn Riders

Exmark Radius series zero turn riders are available in an E, S and X series.

Exmark Radius E Series zero turn riders

The Radius E series is Exmark’s entry level to the Radius line. With all the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders there are very heavy-duty frames, taking a lot of them from the commercial side. Exmark is the leading commercial motor manufacturer. They put a lot of these same features into their mowers which really are designed for both residential and commercial application.

The E series is equipped with a heavy frame, double sided heavy-duty yokes, big heavy bearing assemblies for added strength and durability, and the wide smooth front tires to eliminate a lot of turfing when you’re turning in those soft conditions. There is a tube or jack stand on the front of the mowers next to the front left tire. This is designed to attach a jack with a single pin and raise your mower deck to get underneath for cleaning or changing your blades.

The step through design allows taller operators to climb on the front and Exmark added a non-skid pad on the deck in case you prefer to enter from the side to get onto the mower. Exmark has done a lot to help with maintenance and cleaning. The floor pan flips up and can be easily removed if you want to clean your deck. The Radius E series also has nice rubber mounts which help absorb some of the vibration to your feet.

Another nice feature with the E series, they have a floor pan assembly system that is rubber mounted. Sometimes you may hear the mower deck rattling and shaking, this system helps stabilize that deck to give it a truer height of cut and to eliminate a lot of that vibration. Also, on the maintenance side, to get to your belts on the side Exmark has an assembly that just slides off. These mowers are also designed with heavy-duty commercial pulleys, pulley assemblies, a heavier belt that has Kevlar for added strength and durability. It’s also heat resistant and gives you much longer life than your conventional belts.

Exmark calls the deck a Series 3 deck and it’s a 3 inch deep deck, and much heavier deck than most fabricated decks. It’s fully welded versus tack welded for strength and durability. With anti-scalp rollers in the front of the mower, if you hit a high spot they help raise your deck and are adjustable depending on the height of cut you’re mowing at. Large drive tires allow you to mow at 8 mph and gives you a smooth ride.

The Exmark Radius E series mowers sport a nice comfortable seat that’s easy to adjustable with a single lever. These mowers probably have the nicest deck cutting system adjustment on the market. There’s a foot pedal to raise your deck up and a pin to pull that is held in with a magnet. To set your height in quarter inch increments from 1 to 5 inches, just drop the pin into the desired setting and set it back in place.

All the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders are available in 48, 52, and 60-inch mower decks and because these are designed for commercial applications they use upgraded hydrostatic pumps for extended life, durability, and faster ground speeds. The control panel is all to the operator’s right, very easy to operate, and color-coded. Red is for your throttle and black for your choke. These mowers come standard with an hour meter. This hour meter has four different functions, it has a safety system where the machine levers must be in neutral, the PTO system disengaged, and the parking brake set with the operator in the seat. So, if you left your mower the control panel will flash to tell you that’s why the machine won’t turn over and tells you to turn your PTO switch off.

Also, these machines have a 12-volt charging light so if there was a problem with the charging system it’ll tell you on the control panel. The Radius E series have an electric PTO clutch for ease of operation and standard belt life and all the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders do come standard with a 12-volt plug. The Exmark Radius E series uses Exmark’s engine designed for commercial application. A lot of great commercial features include a V-Twin overhead valve design, developed in twenty four and a half horsepower, nice large air filter assembly, 2 barrel carburetor for more consistent performance, and like all Exmark engines they have the no tool oil change system. You just pull your tube to drain your oil and you have easy access to check your oil with a dipstick to make sure it’s set to the proper level.

Since commercial operators like to be able to access everything very easily you have a fuel filter so it’s easy to see if you did have some bad fuel or if you have a dirty filter and easy to get to your battery if you should have any maintenance or battery issues. All the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders have the roll bar as a standard feature. This provides added safety for the operator. There is also a seat belt you can utilize with the roll bar. If you have a storage issue and don’t have the height, it’s very easy to just twist the two knobs on the inside of the bar and fold the roll bar down to get it into a storage space. It’s very easy to pop back up and lock back into place as well.

Exmark Radius E Series zero turn riders

Some of the key differences from the Radius E series to the S series include the engine which has a larger canister air filtering system to give you much longer times between having to clean your air filter assembly. The mowers got to a 20-inch high-back seat versus the 18 inches with additional padding for additional comfort. There are also larger drive tires which are 23 inches instead of the 22. This increases your ground speed from 8 mph to 9 mph, so it’s a little more productive.

To be able to mow at those higher speeds Exmark added a suspension platform system so you have a spring in the front and two in the back. Your whole frame assembly is suspended by the springs so the idea behind this is on rough terrain it gives you added comfort, and this is fully adjustable based on the weight of the operator. In position five this would give you the most suspension whereas a one would be used by a lighter operator or if the terrain is not real rough so it’s not quite as stiff as the position five. This system gives you a range of adjustments to make based on your conditions and the weight of the operator.

When you get on the machine the whole platform is suspended so it gives you more of a rocking effect to eliminate the jarring and it really helps people with back issues, it provides much more comfort.

Exmark Radius X Series zero turn riders

To round out the Radius line is the X series. This is the top of the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders line. What they do here is go to a larger drive tire as well, a 24-inch tire to give you ground speeds up to 10 mph. The tires are exceptionally productive, but the big thing is they go to a Series 4 deck versus a Series 3. The Series 3 is structurally as durable as a Series 4, but the Series 4 really built Exmark’s reputation as a premium commercial mower brand. The Series 4 deck is four inches deep to give you more airflow under the deck for those heavy mowing conditions so you’re able to maintain those high ground speeds and those heavy conditions and still receive an exceptional quality cut.

Also, when you go into the X series there is a knob on the front of the seat. These mowers have an adjustable suspension seat, just dial in the weight as shown on the dial and that gives you a full suspension right in the seat. It’s exceptionally comfortable, high back, a lot of padding for additional support, exceptional for those higher ground speeds and tougher mowing conditions.

To the back of the machines there is the Kawasaki FX series engine. The FX is the commercial grade Kawasaki engine that has been a proven performer for years in the commercial industry. This engine comes standard on the Radius X series zero turns. There’s also a canister filter but it’s a much larger canister. There again, they are true commercial mowers, so it gives you long run times even in those dusty, tough mowing conditions before you have to clean the air filter cartridge.

All the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders are available with mulch kits, striping kits for the back, and different bagging options from a simple side bag to two or three bag deluxe bagging systems with power assists for exceptional bagging performance.
