RYAN has released the new Jr. Sod Cutter-Hydro. The machine features a variable speed hydrostatic transmission with forward and reverse drive. The transmission also runs independent of the cutting blade, providing a consistent, quality cut regardless of the drive speed.
The new Jr. Sod Cutter - Hydro comes in 18-inch and 24-inch cutting widths, giving operators options for their turf renovation projects. The new models feature the signature RYAN cast-iron gear case that encloses oil lubricated final drives to both wheels and the cutting blade.
“We’re always looking for ways to enhance the performance of our legendary Jr. Sod Cutter line, and this all-new model definitely gives operators everything they need to power through the cut,” RYAN marketing manager Dan Riddle said. “It makes tough sod cutting jobs easy, and sets our customers up for success.”
The Jr. Sod Cutter-Hydro takes less of a toll on the operator by delivering Ultra-Low Vibration Technology, which reduces hand vibration by up to 75 percent. It also features Easy-Steer Technology, where the rear caster wheel can lock in place to hold straight lines or unlock for easier maneuvering.
