227V EFI Air-Cooled Gasoline

Enjoy unparalleled performance in fuel economy with the Model 227V EFI that features a closed-loop Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI), vertical crankshaft engine that continually adjusts the fuel ratio to use less fuel, provide reliable hot and cold starts, reduce emissions and minimize fuel-related service issues.

KOHLER CONFIDANT ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION (EFI) ENGINE
747cc, air-cooled Kohler Confidant, Delphi® based, closed-loop EFI engine with vertical crankshaft and pressure tube for longer service life.
DESIGN-MATCHED TRANSMISSION
Design-matched hydrostatic transmission with 12 cc variable displacement piston-style pumps and Parker high-torque wheel motors offers smooth, predictable response In-line cooaling fans and 7-micron absolute filter No power-robbing gearbox or other wear parts prolong service life Provides best-in-class 500-hour transmission fluid change interval with no break-in period, reducing costs and maintenance t
HEAVY-DUTY DECK
Extra-deep, 5.5-inch deck is fabricated from heavy-gauge formed steel with a reinforced anvil edge Specially designed cutting chambers enhance airflow for better cut quality Deck easily converts from side discharge to optional Down Discharge™ mulching or PowerVac™ collection Sentry™ spindles with massive, 8-inch flanges anchored in a 6-bolt pattern, spread the force of impact for greater strength Spindle planes are fabricated from double-layered formed steel laminate and combine with the spindles to form a triple-strength deck to keep blades level and deliver a high-quality cut Sentry™ spindle guards shield spindle housing and seal lower bearings from fiber wrap and dirt ingestion
QUIKAJUST® DROP PIN HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Raise and lower the deck easily with foot pedal and drop pin for precision cutting heights between 1.0 and 5.0 inches.
WARRANTY
Commercial Use: 2-year or 800-hour (whichever comes first); limited warranty covering parts and labor. Residential Use: 4-year or 800-hour (whichever comes first); limited warranty covering parts and labor.
RUGGED CONSTRUCTION
Robotically-welded steel construction for long-lasting durability Centered-bearing design provides greater load-bearing capacity to handle the weight of operator, fuel and high-capacity collector with reserve strength for curb shocks and weight shifts Tough-as-nails powder-coated finish is fusion-bonded for chip and rust resistance
REDUCED MAINTENANCE
Only two Access-Eze™ lubrication points cut maintenance time up to 95% Self-tensioning belts minimize cost and labor on routine maintenance

DURAFLEX® SUSPENSION FORKS
Optional DuraFlex™ Suspension Forks absorb the impacts of rough terrain to maintain a level cut, and can be set for use with PowerVac™ collectors.
FOLDABLE ROPS
The Foldable ROPS allows the two-post ROPS to be lowered for mowing under low-hanging trees and other overhead obstacles, or for storing and transporting in enclosed trailers with low door clearance. CAUTION: Avoid drop-offs, embankments and steep slopes. Do not allow ROPS to provide a false pretense of security in hazardous areas and avoid questionable conditions. Always wear seatbelt when Foldable ROPS is in up-right position. When Foldable ROPS is down, DO NOT use seat belt, and drive with extra caution.
SUNSHADE CANOPY VINYL
Lightweight, water repellent, UV-resistant vinyl canopy mounts easily to OPS or ROPS to limit exposure to direct sunlight, reducing eye strain and increasing operator comfort.
LED WORK LIGHTS
LED work lights provide improved visibility in low light situations.
YELLOW BEACON LIGHT
Yellow beacon attaches to OPS or ROPS to provide greater visibility in high-traffic areas.
SUNSHADE CANOPY ALUMINUM
Diamond-plated aluminum canopy is highly resistant to abrasions. Easily mounts to ROPS to increase operator comfort by limiting exposure to direct sunlight and reducing eye strain.
DOWN DISCHARGE™ MULCHING PACKAGE
The optional Down Discharge™ mulching package with GrassMax™ medium-lift blades cuts and recuts clippings and directs them deep into the grass bed, enriching turf and producing a beautifully manicured cut.
SPEEDTRIMMING™ ROLLER KIT
