Driving the Murray 17.5/46
These Murray garden tractors are equipped with infinite speed hydrostatic transmission which allows you to control the high performance 17.5 HP engine with ease. Cruise control helps with mowing hills and and provides a easy ride on long, straight stretches. The deep treaded tires are large enough to handle most terrains, providing excellent traction and stability.
The steering utilizes a low effort independent system for maximum comfort and control, adding to the overall user friendly experience.
Cutting with the Murray 17.5/46
The 46 inch (117 cm) cutting deck is equipped with 3 blades to ensure maximum quality cut. Integrated Anti-Scalp wheels follow the contours of the ground, leaving the grass smoothly cut and ground undisturbed on uneven terrains.
The side discharge of grass clippings is enhanced by a large side deflector that helps to ensure even dispersal of grass cuttings. In aditiion, a mulching kit is available as a standard feature.
Height of cut is controlled by a lever conveniently placed on the fender. So, it is easy to reach, but out of the leg space while driving.
The turning radius is 63.5 cm ( 25 inches ) which is normal for a machine of this size. If this does seem a little wide, keep in mind that this model comes with a reverse mow option (RMO), that will allow you to mow while backing up. RMO is a feature on high performance Murray garden tractors and is operated by a switch which is conveniently placed on the dashboard near the steering wheel.
