More Power, Wider Cut, AND Power Steering!

If you have larger areas to mow—or if you just want to get the job done faster—move up to our 17.5 HP PRO XL30 model. It features a 30"-wide cutting deck (vs. 26" for our 10.5 HP and 15.5 HP models), so you cover more ground with each pass. The 500cc Briggs and Stratton power plant steps you up to a Professional Series engine, so it will easily handle the extra torque load over the long haul.

Best of all, the 17.5 HP model also includes independent disc brakes on each wheel. You can feather the uphill brake on side slopes to improve the machine's tracking and traction. Plus, the brakes enable you to Power Steer the wider, heavier deck with ease!

Power Steering (:41)

Power Steering is Easy on You!

Our disc brake system provides Power Steering. Each wheel is equipped with its own brake, operated by a hand lever. Just squeeze the brake on one side, and the mower will pivot easily around that wheel. You're in control...without wrestling the machine!

17.5 HP Briggs EX Series™ Engine

The legendary power, performance and durability of Briggs & Stratton® engines make them a great choice for the PRO XL30 models. The PRO XL30 17.5 HP model features a Briggs EX Series™ OHV engine, with full-pressure oil pump (great for positive lubrication even on side slopes), a spin-off oil filter, 500 cc of displacement, cast-iron cylinder sleeve, and easy, turn-key electric-starting.

30" Wide-Cut Pivoting Deck

The 30" deck is wide enough for fast field clearing, but is still very maneuverable. Unlike rigid, fixed decks found on some mowers, the DR deck pivots from side to side, allowing it to follow the contours of rough terrain. This feature minimizes scalping and improves traction.

Superior Mulching

Our decks are enclosed on 3 sides, so that cut material is chopped and re-chopped, reducing grass and brush to a fine mulch. This means less material is left behind in your field, and none of the windrows you get with side-discharging mowers.

Gear-Driven Transmission: Lock it in and Rip it up!

Unlike hydrostatic drives, the DR's geared transmission lets you lock in your ground speed, leaving your hands free to steer the machine across uneven terrain (instead of fussing with touchy throttle controls as you go). With 3 forward gears, you can choose a fixed pace that's right for you.

Big, Lugged Tires for Sure Traction

No other brush mower has tires like this. They're the biggest (18" x 6.5" x 8"), they have superior lugged treads that pull the mower through or over just about anything, and they are sealant filled...which means they're highly resistant to puncture. Tough as nails, apparently!

Custom-Made Blade Spindle

Made of 1.375" thick cast iron with oversized double sealed bearings, the blade spindle is integrated into the deck housing and reinforced for vibration-free performance. Designed to provide years of maintenance-free use (and abuse!).

Commercial Grade Electric Clutch

Our industry-leading, self-adjusting clutch is designed for easy access and quick swapping out of optional attachments. After 245 hours of testing we only used up 10% of the life of the clutch. There are no cables to stretch or idler pulleys to get out of adjustment.

Attachments Add 4-Season Versatility

Thanks to our quick-change coupling system, the DR's brush mowing deck can be swapped—in just minutes—with one of our optional PTO attachments: a 42" finish mower, a 30" snow thrower, a wood chipper, or a 42" grader blade. It's like owning 5 machines in one!

Built to Take a Beating

Field and brush mowing is a bruising business, and underbuilt mowers don't survive long out where the tough stuff grows. We frame our machines with heavy-duty, laser cut steel, and reinforce key stress spots so you get a product that will withstand years of use and abuse.

Adjustable Handlebars

A comfortable working height is important, especially when traversing rough terrain.

Ergonomic Controls

Both on the control panel and on the grips, all DR Field and Brush Mowers controls are designed to optimize operator comfort and minimize hand fatigue. Everything you need is right at your fingertips, so there is no walking around the mower to make adjustments.

Heavy-Duty Powder Coating

Our frames and decks are finished with a tough, durable powder coating that resists scratching and promotes long life.
