New Iseki SZ330 Zero Turn Mower Introduced by Ransomes Jacobsen

August 02, 2006

Ipswich, United Kingdom - August 2, 2006 - Ransomes Jacobsen, a Textron company (NYSE: TXT), has introduced a new zero turn mower, the Iseki SZ330 with a choice of 1.5 or 1.85 metre cutting decks.

The new machine is powered by a 32hp, three-cylinder, liquid cooled diesel engine with easy access via a tilting, one-piece engine cover. A removable screen in front of the radiator is also easily accessed for cleaning with an air hose.

A step through operator platform, fully adjustable suspension seat with arm rests, folding ROPS frame, inertia reel lap belt and foot operated parking brake provide operator comfort and safety.

The 36 litre fuel tank, with electric fuel indicator as standard, provides plenty of operational capacity at speeds of up to 10.6 mph. All the main operator controls are situated on the right-hand side and include engine ignition, hand throttle, deck lift/lower level, height of cut selector, fuel gauge, warning lights and hour meter.

The Iseki SZ330 also features a floating rear axle which aids contour following and helps provide a comfortable ride, especially when mounting kerbs. The cutting blades rotate at 2600 rpm and are directly driven via an electro-hydraulic pto engagement to the deck drive. With no belts, tensioning mechanism or clutches to adjust, the system requires minimal maintenance. Height of cut ranges from 25mm to 115mm.

For blade maintenance and deck cleaning, a jack leg is conveniently stored under the front panel of the operator's platform. This enables the machine to be raised safely to an angle of 45°.

Costing £12,750 with the 1.5m cutting deck, the SZ330 is competitively priced and is sure to appeal to landscape and professional grounds care contractors.
