Steiner Introduces 80-Inch Flex Deck Mower

In order to provide golf course superintendents with a solution for mowing challenging areas, Steiner®, manufacturers of heavy-duty articulating tractors, announces the release of the Steiner Flex Deck by Lastec®, a highly flexible mowing attachment designed for use with the Steiner 440 four-wheel drive tractor.

The Steiner Flex Deck is an adaptable mowing attachment fabricated with four hinged, floating decks and four blades to provide even mowing on the undulating, hilly terrain found around tee boxes, water hazards, bunkers and rough. This flexible mowing attachment features an 80-inch overall cutting width, a 1.5-inch to five-inch height of cut range and seven caster wheels for added support.

With the Steiner Flex Deck, operators and superintendents can reduce hand-mowing and trimming in hard-to-navigate areas and achieve consistent, even mowing throughout their course. The four decks are designed to achieve 40-degrees of motion, and can mow terrain that flat mowers aren’t able to. The two middle decks offer 10-degrees of upward and downward articulation, while the trim side decks feature 20-degrees of upward and downward mobility. To ensure consistent reliability and operation, the hinge points in the deck feature urethane bushings that provide superintendents and grounds keepers with a low-maintenance, dependable attachment.

The Steiner Flex Deck comes with a five-year warranty on the hinge bushings and a two-year warranty on other components.

Mated to the Steiner 440 articulating all-wheel drive tractor, this new attachment, coupled with the rest of the Steiner line of high productivity attachments, make Steiner the ultimate productivity system for golf course superintendents and landscape contractors.
