1. Tilt-Up Hood and Seat Deck. Provides
quick and easy service accessibility for routine maintenance or adjustments.
2. Kohler Cast Iron Engines. Horizontally
opposed twin power with minimum vibration, uses less fuel than most single
cylinder 17 and 19 hp engines, too. Result: load-lugging low end torque
that minimizes power train strain, maximizes load carrying capacity,
handles heavy loads without stalling, starts quickly in all kinds of
weather. Air cooling, lightweight aluminum crankcase and Kohler
"heart of iron" cast iron cylinder -cylinder engines deliver
smooth barrels combine to lengthen engine life. Air cooled,
single-cylinder cast iron Kohler engines are dynamically balanced,
horizontally and vertically, to reduce vibration and enhance drive
comfort. They deliver good fuel economy, high torque and smooth operation.
Fast, positive starts are assured by compact magnet type starting motor
and Kohler patented automatic compression release.
3. Controlled Traction. Limited
slip differential automatically shifts power from wheel with less traction
to the one with most - takes you over muddy, icy or slippery terrain with
4. Two Transmissions. The
6-speed is all manual with 6 forward and 2 reverse speed ranges. The hydrostatic
lets you choose speed and direction with one lever. You never have to clutch.
All have belt power transfer to reduce shock.
5. "Live" Power Take-Off. The
power takeoff is live so attachments can be operated with the tractor in gear or
in neutral. The combination mechanical cone clutch provides power to all
attachments - front, center or rear - without the need for costly conversion
kits or separate engines. Makes for easy mounting and removal of attachments.
6. Spring Suspended Seat. High
back, deep bucket design conforms to torso providing support and comfort.
Springs located between seat and tractor soak up bumps and vibration.
7. Tough Full Length Frame. Engine and
power train are cradled in heavy-duty full-length steel frame to maintain
critical parts alignment through season after season of service.
9. Hydraulic Implement
Lift. Provides infinitely
variable height control for attachments at a touch -- saves time,
saves muscles, too! Standard on 916, 917 and 919 models.
8. Built-in Headlights. Standard
on all models. Let you mow or clear snow well after dark. Large reflectors
put light where you need it.
Convenient Controls. All controls are within easy reach and
sight of the operator. Yet all levers are out of the way. You
can get off the tractor with ease.
11. Easy Access Fuel Tank.
Top of the hood location makes it easy to get at and read from the operators
seat. Three gallon tank has large opening so you can refill easily without
Latch. A security feature that locks your tractor firmly in place. A touch
on the latch at the rear of the right foot rest does it - and release is just as
13. In-Line Drive. Bevel
gear box, engine and crankshaft are permanently aligned, assuring maximum power
transfer from engine to transmission. Rubber isolator in drive shaft and belt
power transfer dampen shock loads between gear box and transmission for smoother
operation, less vibration.
