The Husqvarna R220T is an Articulated Riding Mower. These mowers are built with a front mounted cutting deck, which gives you convenient access to mow under bushes and around obstacles. You can reach places a regular riding tractor or zero turn may not be able to reach. The articulated steering allows the rear wheels to swing underneath the machine, providing greater maneuverability and a tighter turning radius. The low center of gravity and rear wheel drive system offer superior traction, especially on hills. One of the most popular features of the Articulated Riders is the cutting deck, that can be lifted in the service position to quickly clean or perform maintenance. Articulated Steering: The rear wheel drive system with pivoting axle allows the back wheels to swing in under the machine, resulting in better maneuverability a simpler operation. Front Mounted Cutting Deck: The side discharge mowing deck is mounted on the front of the machine, giving you a better view of the mowing area and easier access to hard-to-reach places, like under bushes and around corners. Flip-Up Deck Service Position: Flip up the deck to clean off grass or perform a little maintenance on the mowing deck. Ergonomic Position: With a low center of gravity, the operator feels more safe and stable. Plus it improves traction. Attachment Frame: Attachment friendly! The deck can be replaced with a front-mounted attachment, such as a broom, snow blade, and snow thrower. Hydrostatic Transmission: Pedal-operated hydrostatic transmission smoothly gets up to speed and changes direction, while you keep both hands on the wheel. Automatic Blade Engagement: The blades automatically engage when the mowing deck is lowered. Storage Compartment: Open storage compartments below the drivers seat can hold bottles, tools, gloves, or other accessories. Engine Behind Rider: Reduces noise and emissions in the operator zone!
