96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing Mower Deck
Productivity equals profitability for landscape maintenance professionals, so it is no surprise that bigger is better. That is the case with our new 96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing cutting deck, which is available on Lazer Z Diesel and Lazer Z X-Series gas models. It is engineered not just to be more productive, but also deliver the durability and signature cut quality Exmark owners expect from their mowers.
Why Choose a Wider Deck?
For a landscape professional, increased productivity is the number one reason to choose a larger cutting deck. That said, every landscape pro knows it is cut quality that brings customers back, so a balance is necessary.
Based on feedback from its customers, Exmark designed the 96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing cutting deck to excel in four key areas:
- Productivity - increased cutting width and mower speed maximize productivity per worker.
- Cut Quality - articulating Flex Wing cutting decks precisely follow ground contour.
- Reduced Maintenance - extended service intervals, sealed, zero-maintenance spindles and reduced grease points minimize in-season maintenance.
- Commercial Durability - PTO-driven cutting deck, heavy-duty hydro-drive system and liquid-cooled Yanmar diesel engines deliver maximum long-term durability and value.
With a 33-percent wider width of cut than a 72-inch mower (60-inch mower shown in photo), the 96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing cutting deck significantly decreases the time it takes to finish large mowing jobs.
A Lazer Z Diesel mower equipped with the 96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing cutting deck and the Yanmar 1.6-Liter Common Rail engine is capable of mowing more than 9.5 acres per hour. The 96" Lazer Z X-Series equipped with an air-cooled Kohler EFI commercial engine is capable of mowing more than 8.5 acres per hour. The robust engines and cutting width makes these the most productive mowers Exmark has ever built.
The bat wing-style mower deck features a 48-inch center deck with two 24-inch wing decks, which are capable of articulating up to 20-degrees up and 15-degrees down to precisely follow ground contour. When combined with Exmark's rear-discharge deck design, the articulating wing decks allow the 96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing mower deck to deliver a professional finished appearance in less time than ever.
The wing decks fold hydraulically to minimize trailering space, and cut height is adjustable hydraulically, from 1.0 to 5.5-inches in quarter-inch increments.
Like all Exmark products, the 96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing cutting deck is engineered to reduce maintenance needs and associated downtime. The design uses four standardized blades - the same blade as a 72-inch UltraCut cutting deck - to ease blade sourcing and replacement.
The sealed bearing blade spindles are designed to last the life of the machine with zero maintenance, and with just three in-season grease points, the 96-inch Ultra Cut Flex Wing deck maximizes in-season uptime. In addition, the floor pan and belt covers are removable without tools to ease access to the PTO, belts and gearbox.
Fully fabricated and seam welded of 7-gauge high-strength alloy steel, the 96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing cutting deck is built to thrive in the toughest commercial mowing conditions. The PTO-drive system uses a wet clutch system that's integrated into the mower transmission to increase load capacity and overall durability of the deck drive.
Exmark's zero-maintenance sealed blade spindles employ a large 7.75-inch cutter housing and 25mm (.98-inch) diameter spindle shafts with splined blade drivers for unmatched long-term durability, efficiency and smooth operation.
