Built for heavy-duty professional mowing, the 2020 XP HD delivers all the horsepower and durability needed to tackle the toughest mowing jobs day after day.
The XP HD offers three engine options, all V-twin cylinder, carbureted versions of the Kawasaki FX – the 852cc with 27 hp. (XP 540 HD), 921cc with 31 hp. (XP 610/660 HD) and the 35 hp., 999cc in the XP 720 HD. Pros looking for increased fuel-efficiency can turn to the XP 610 HDi with Kohler’s Command Pro engine boasting 824cc, 33 hp. and Electronic Fuel Injection.
XP engine performance is matched to highly efficient commercial Hydro-Gear hydrostatic transmissions. The ZT-4400 can drive all XP models to a max forward speed of 11 mph, and has an unmatched responsive operator control.
Easy on/off accessibility to the operator’s platform are provided by an incorporated deck step with foot traction plate. Available in four cutting widths – 54-inch (540 HD), 61-inch (610 HD/HDi), 66-inch (660 HD) and 72-in (720 HD). Rotational deck height adjustment changes cutting height in 1⁄4″ increments ranging from 1.5- to 5-inches with the easy turn of a dial. The adjustability of anti-scalp wheels and baffles, in combination with a multitude of blade options, allow you to tune the Aero Deck for all seasons, varying conditions and grass types.
The Altoz XP chassis provides an ultra-rigid platform centered around the Altoz C-channel frame, laser cut and welded from heavy gauge steel. Up front, the intelligently designed low-profile front viewport provides the best sightlines for operators. The angled steel front wheel forks with heavy-duty tapered caster bearings glide over the toughest terrain.
Intuitive ergonomics make it easy to mow all day on an XP HD. Operator comfort starts with the 12-way adjustability of the high back suspension seat with incorporated armrests and the high-grade elastomers that protect the foot wells from ground vibrations. The all-new SmarTrac Pro control represents a leap forward in technology: a solid-state PTO switch, keyless push-to-start ignition switch and the patented So Start clutch control decreases mechanical wear and significantly increases deck belt life.
Other XP HD features include the convenience of a rotational deck-height dial, 12-volt power outlet, device storage compartment, cup holder, stylized rear 12-inch steel rims with 24-inch tires, foldable ROPS and two 7-gallon side-mounted fuel tanks. Large capacity collection systems for spring and fall clean-ups, striping kits and operator-controlled discharge covers are a few of the accessories offered for XP HD models.
