With a floating 46″ out front collection deck, large 280 litre collection and electric bin grass discharge the FD280 is highly productive, fast and leaves a beautiful finish on lawns. Ideal for large properties where leaves are a problem or where it’s slippery under foot.

The FD 280 offers extraordinarily good grass and leaf collection performance. Its unique deck shape and blade design produces excellent airflow which eliminates grass blocking. The three bladed cutting system and direct rear collection, operates without the need for fans or an impeller. The electric grass discharge takes out all the hard work of emptying the grass. Simply drive to your dump site and tip out the grass by pushing an electric switch.The FD280 is steering wheel driven and the rear wheel steer system produces easy, tight and responsive performance – it is a pleasure to drive. Turning on full lock leaves less than 40cm of uncut grass – ideal for cutting around trees.
The FD280 features differential lock to increase traction and a pivoting rear wheel axle to increase stability over uneven ground. The parallelogram deck support keeps the cutting level uniform at all cutting heights. The latest FD280 model features an electric clutch to engage the blades as well as a quick release lever to enable the cutting deck to be released so that it can be raised to the vertical position for easy maintenance. A hose washing port allows for easy deck cleaning after use.
