Kubota (UK) Ltd has added the new GR2120 to its comprehensive lawn tractor range. Packed with advanced features, the 21hp diesel powered mower features a tough but easy to operate all-wheel-drive hydrostatic transmission ideally suited to the demands of large home and small estate users.
A key feature of the GR2120 is the unique Kubota Glide Steer system. Redeveloped for this new model, Glide Steer delivers an unmatched combination of manoeuvrability and turf protection. This is achieved by the system disconnecting drive to the inside rear wheel as the front axle approaches its full lock of 70degrees.
At work, Glide Steer enables the operator to drive around an obstacle, such as a tree, for a single-cut pass – and the manoeuvre can be carried out without the worry of the wheels scuffing the turf. This is of particular benefit on well-maintained lawns. At full lock, the uncut circle left by the GR2120 is just 100cm.
The GR2120 is fitted with a high-efficiency 48in (1.22m) twin-rotor deck. Designed to discharge clippings directly into the collector, the deck will cut and collect grass of up to 102mm in height. The high tip-speed blades are also designed to deliver an exceptional finish, the deck offering a minimum cut height of just 25mm.
The integral 450 litre collector has the capacity to allow long periods between emptying. Optimising this capacity is made easier on the GR2120, thanks to a newly developed electronic ‘collector full’ sensor system alerting the operator only when the full collector capacity has been utilised. Fitted with a gas-strut assisted discharge system, the collector can be quickly and easily emptied without the operator having to leave the seat.
The shaft-driven deck is engaged by a newly designed hydraulic clutch pack. Designed to offer rugged, long-life performance, the clutch is engaged via a lever and has an extremely light action. The deck is raised and lowered hydraulically, with height adjustment carried out via a simple knob.
"The GR2120 has been purpose developed to meet the demands of home and estate owners who have a large area of both well maintained and less regularly mown grass to cut," says David Blackwood, Sales and Marketing Manager of Kubota Tractor and Groundcare.
"We have taken key features from our professional mower models and applied them to the new GR2120. Safe, economical and easy to operate, the GR2120 will deliver an exceptionally high quality of cut".
The Kubota GR2120 is sold exclusively through dealers dedicated to offering the best in customer care. The new mower is a direct replacement for the highly regarded GR2100-II and is available now. Retail price, to include power steering, all-wheel drive, 48in deck, collector and diesel power, is £8,285.
