While there are many new features on the Next Generation TD92, there is a lot that has stayed the same. From an ownership perspective, the TD92 is a tried and true design and uses components that all have a proven field history. This is the Progressive Advantage!
The Next Generation TD92 uses the same 4-way and deck gear boxes as the prior model and are covered with a 3 year warranty. This is imporatant as not only are proven components used, but if future service is required they are readily available. Reusing good parts from older mowers keeps owning cost low.
Automatic mechanical deck locks are incorporated into the Progressive TD92 to hold all three decks in place when raised for either blade servicing or transport. The decks are easily raised and lowered using the tractors hydraulic system, directly from the tractor seat. Deck locks are relased by simple pull rope - no need for an extra hydraulic circuit.
Cut height adjustment can be done simply and quickly on the TD92 by removing a lynch pin from the top of each castor wheel stem, and moving the spacers either above or below support tube as required. Like all Progressive mowers, the wheel hub and castor pivot are greaseable and castor pivot bushings are replaceable for low owning and operating costs. A slight forward tip designed into each deck means the back half of the blade swing is just above the freshly cut turf. This unique feature saves fuel and damage to the plant. For added convenience Progressive is offering an optional Hydraulic Deck Lift Stabilizer that will make height of cut changes easier than ever. See the OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT tab for more information.
The strong center frame carries the pivot points for the rear deck and outer wings as well as the transport axles. Constructed of heavy walled structural tubing, it is reinforced in high stress areas to minimize overall weight while maintaining structural integrity. A labour saving open frame design avoids clipping build up, making cleaning and maintenance easier. A low tongue weight makes the connection to the tractor a one man job.
Progressive continues to use a powder coat paint system that is baked on to a hard, durable finish that retains its colour and gloss for years to come. This is important, as it is a known fact that operators who have pride in the equipment they run, will take better care of it.
The TD92 is easy on the turf. Low ground pressure is achieved with 12 floatation tires. Four non-swiveling deck caster tires plus the two main transport tires keep the mower tracking straight while mowing along hillsides. Tire position is staggered to minimize soil compaction and rutting.
As your business grows, so can your Progressive mower. By simply adding a PM-36 unit to your TD92, you can gain the benefit of the Pro-Max Mowing System.
