Another dealer response: Unfortunately there is no way of making the turfcat go into 4WD reverse, as far as traction upgrades are concerned there is a differential lock kit available, but it will only affect the front wheels.That is what I figured, the rear wheels locking up in the previous post is what I say is bogus. I am a helicopter mechanic, I do understand hydraulics.
Replies are still coming in, here is yet another explanation ...:confused2:I am not to worried about it, only ran into a problem once. My place is rarely wet.
And every so often ya get a smart-arse ( me ) ... to add some nonsense in .. like mine is a butt-hole discharge, was born with it, and after 71+ years it still "toots" loud N clear but on occasion has needed Metamucil to function properly.. :laughing:..:laughing:Oh okay. Mine is the 72" right side discharge.
I had to get a new membership to answer your question. They will handled very rough terrain. I drive through washouts often in red clay and have not got stuck yet. Just remember it does not have 4wd in reverse. I found mine on craigslist.Fellas,
Was wondering if you could help me get smart on these Jake front mount mowers. I am in the upstate NY area also.
My propert is pretty hilly and wet sometimes, so I would need the 4 wd for sure. My question is about the ability of these machines to handle rough terrain. I have a few acres of old pasture I mow and it beats the life out of me on my zero turn. Do these style of mowers handle the rough stuff pretty well?
I’m on the lookout for a used machine in the Albany area. How did you guys find your machines?
Thank you for the help, Joe
