Review: 2016 Iseki SF370 Out Front Mower
2016 Iseki SF370 Out Front Mower: The Introduction
Walking around your lawn with a push mower is such a draining task, especially if you have plenty of green space. Good thing, there are already various models of ride on mowers on the market today that you can buy to be able to experience an easygoing operation. One model I know that I think you should take into consideration is the SF370 Out Front Mower from Iseki. I’ll dig into its features in my review below to help you figure out if it’s suitable for your lawn’s operations.
2016 Iseki SF370 Out Front Mower: Key Features
Professional landscapers with medium- to-large-sized lawns to maintain can heavily rely on the SF370. That’s because it can deliver over-the-top power with the help of its 3-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that can punch out up to 36 horsepower, and a 2-range hydrostatic transmission that comes with a modern automatic 4WD system. These two make your ride on mower indestructible during the toughest applications.
The Iseki SF370 is also easy to maneuver, therefore, allowing you to mow wherever you want. Thanks to its 47cm turning radius. It equips a huge 48 litre tank, too, enabling it to run for long hours.
Had the chance to test the SF370 a couple of weeks ago, and now I can guarantee that it can provide a professional cutting result. Its three blades can cut a grass height of 30-120cm. It also brings a drive shaft PTO, robust cast-iron pulleys, and a double V-belt. These parts don’t only contribute to the overall durability of the unit, but help ensure a smooth operation as well. This mower also works very fast, given that it has a travelling speed of 21km per hour.
The SF370 does not only work fast, it allows easy maintenance, too. Adding to its efficiency, the operator’s station’s floor is tiltable, and the fuel cap and the oil filler are within quick reach. Its bonnet is also hassle-free to open. When it comes to the mower deck, you can tilt it to more than 90 degrees or even remove it completely without the use of any tools. Finally, belt tension checking, greasing, and blade changing are simple to accomplish, too.
Aside from its power and performance, one more thing that I love about this out front mower is its comfortable operator station. According to our local dealer, Iseki is truly famous in the industry for making their equipment cozy and enjoyable to ride. The SF370’s floating operator station is on rubber blocks to lessen vibration and noise. It also sports an exceptional and clear visibility of the deck in front.
As per the switches and levers, they are ergonomically laid out on the dashboard for easy access. The unit as well boasts a cruise control and a power steering for a better ride comfort.
