The Next Gen 18" Hydro-Drive Sod Cutter for Golf applications is perfect for soft touch, shallow cut, bent grass. With variable ground speeds - forward and reverse - and intuitive controls, this sod cutter is the easiest to operate and most comfortable to use sod cutter on the market.
This unit is built upon the most rugged foundation in the industry with a newly designed superstructure frame featuring 50 more pounds of steel and supports a robust drive and cut system. Plus a laser clad cutting blade offers precision cut and up to 3x blade life.
The machine's heavy-duty gear box and cutting system include oversized sealed bearings, tight shaft mounted eccentrics and a one-inch lateral stability bar - all designed to provide the next level in durability. Knobby wheels are ideal for softer touch, shallow cut bent grass applications.
The Next Gen Hydro-Drive Sod Cutter features the popular variable speed fingertip control in both forward and reverse, similar to the innovative Billy Goat hydro-drive overseeder and brush cutter controls - for consistent feel, simple operation and reliability through the hydro-drive family.
Compared to multiple settings on other machines, the SC181HG features the easiest to use "Set and Forget™ blade depth adjustment to 2.5" with a single lever from the operator station. The unit comes standard with a rear caster wheel for curved cuts and locks for straight cutting and handle isolation mounts absorb vibration for smooth, fatigue-free operation. Other user-friendly features include an hour meter, heavy-duty front bumper bar and six convenient tie-down points, plus text to video for quick access to operating instructions video via your mobile device.
