Exmark has expanded its line of 30-inch walk-behind mowers with the introduction of its new Commercial 30 X-Series model. With a new, more powerful engine and transmission, the Commercial 30 X-Series gives landscape maintenance professionals a more productive option, ideal for smaller properties.
According to Exmark Product Manager, Lenny Mangnall, the Commercial 30 X-Series is an evolution of the company’s original Commercial 30 model, introduced in 2013.
“With 40-percent more cut area per pass than the industry-standard 21-inch walk-behind mower, our Commercial 30 quickly found favor with landscape contractors looking to get jobs done faster without sacrificing cut quality. The new Commercial 30 X-Series takes that proven formula to the next level with Kohler’s premier single-cylinder commercial engine – the Command Pro CV200, along with a powerful transmission, for increased performance and durability.”
The increased displacement of the powerful Kohler engine gives it 30-percent more torque than competing engines to quickly power through the toughest, thickest grass. Other notable features of the CV200 engine include cast iron cylinder liners, dual splash and pressurized lubrication, and Quad-Clean air filtration for enhanced protection from debris and contaminants. Cast aluminum oil and air filter bases, along with a steel blower housing provide increased durability in tough conditions. The engine is protected by Kohler’s three-year limited commercial warranty.
Exmark upgraded the transmission on the Commercial 30 X-Series to make the most of the Kohler engine’s additional power. It delivers increased wheel torque to power up hills, with easier tracking on side hills. The positive drive design couples both drive wheels for maximum traction in all conditions, with infinitely variable ground speed up to 3.8mph.The heavy-duty wet clutch transmission and self-tensioning belt drive are designed for minimum maintenance and maximum reliability in the most demanding commercial applications. The Commercial 30 X-Series also includes a parking brake.
The 4.6-inch deep, 30-inch wide cutting deck delivers Exmark’s signature cut quality, with a compact design to enhance maneuverability. The 3-in-1 design offers the ability to quickly change from side discharge, to bagging or mulching, without tools, and the compact deck enhances maneuverability in tight spaces.
The efficiency of the timed, two-blade cutting system reduces power requirements. The simple timing belt system maintains blade position and isolates the engine from shock load. A shear pin on each blade driver provides additional impact protection, with simple replacement in the event of an impact. Exmark’s heavy-duty spindle assemblies feature robust ball bearings, forged spindles and die-cast housings for maximum durability with minimal maintenance.
Exmark offers a high-performance mulch kit for the Commercial 30 X-Series, which optimizes mulching performance in tough conditions such as wet, heavy grass. The kit can also function as a fill-reduction kit when operating with a bagger, which increases productivity by reducing the need to stop and empty the bag.
