New mower turns on a dime

Kubota has unveiled three new models that will replace its previous T series mower line-up.

The new T series comprises the T2090 with 42-inch deck and the T2290 with 42- and 48-inch deck options. Both deck options use a new fabricated design offering rigidity, strength and reduced maintenance.

Kubota has improved the previous models with features such as an ultra-sharp turning radius, so operators can now turn the mower 360 degrees on only a 14-inch turning radius.

A foot-operated hydrostatic transmission pedal simplifies control of speed and direction, leaving hands free at all times for precise steering in confined spaces.

A flat foot pan provides a clearer operating space and ample room for the operator to enter and exit the mower. All models have a high-back seat that adjusts up to four inches fore and aft, and the T2290 models include a parallel link seat suspension system.

The T2090 and the T2290 are powered V-twin engines that produce 20hp and 21.5hp respectively; both models come with a 4-year/300-hour warranty.
