The Progressive SDR-65 is a three point hitch version of the popular tri-deck TDR-15 mower and it utilizes many of the same components. Not to be confused with other, light duty three point hitch mowers that are available, the SDR-65 has a 6” diameter rollers on both the front and rear across the full width of the deck. Ideal for smaller mowing jobs where a quality cut is mandatory, the SDR’s rollers allow you to cut as low as ½”, while simultaneously striping and rolling the mowing surface. To minimize service requirements, the SDR-65 is equipped with field proven maintenance free blade spindles. Progressive’s SDR mowers are another example of the ingenuity and quality that goes in to producing durable, reliable rotary finishing mowers that are easy to maintain. They are “The Better Built Choice”.

Each 6” diameter, thick wall rollers with ‘Hex’ shaft ends is supported by two 1¼” ductile iron flange bearings. A cable wiper is position by each roller to eliminate grass build-up in damp mowing conditions. The rollers also help promote root to turf contact for faster divot repair and healthier turf.
Progressive offers four blade options for our SDR mowers. The options include: two fixed blades and two Pro-EZ II replaceable blade tip options in either high or low lifts. This allows the owner to chose which one will best optimize their cut and maintenance costs, depending upon the growing conditions and mowing requirements.
Either model SDR can be ordered with any of the four different blades types direct from the factory or fitted with another style of Progressive blade at a later date, as the blades all mount to the same blade spindle.

Completely interchangeable with a greased spindle, the same housing is used providing wide spacing between the bearings ensuring low bearing loading and long service life. Maintenance free blade spindles not only protect the owner's investment from a missed service, it also reduces overall maintenance time and costs.
