The Gianni Ferrari GTR is an out-front mower which combines extremely simple use with professional performance, and appeals to both enthusiastic estate owners and contractors who need a nimble, compact machine.
The Gianni Ferrari GTRs are easy-to-handle, compact machines endowed with high productivity features and superior cutting and collection performances.
The out-front cutting deck provides maximum visibility and perfect control. The front deck cuts the grass before the machine passes over it, making a clean cut. The front deck also able to cut under bushes and makes finishing around trees, flower beds and walls easier. A carrier frame holds the deck in a suspended position, so it can float following terrain contour, ensuring an even, precise cut. The deck carrier frame is fitted with non-puncture wheels, in full soft rubber. The front lifting device allows to raise the deck rapidly thus enabling the machines to mount kerbs and other obstacles. The swing back blades absorb shocks and protect the transmission against various debris left in the grass. The blades are able to cut extremely tough grasses such as couch, with a high quality of cut. The heavy duty electric PTO clutch can be adjusted to ensure long life and positive engagement.
The counter-rotating blades provide a strong aerodynamic thrust, forcing the cut grass directly into the collector. The collection chute is shaped to follow the parabolic trajectory that the grass is naturally given after cutting, providing optimum flow without energy loss, and better compaction of the grass in the collector, as a result. The direct collect system of the grass avoids clogging even in tough conditions with tall, moist grass. The special design of the chute helps fill the collector to the optimum level and, together the outstanding grass compaction, it means an even greater capacity. The collection chute is fitted with a hatch for easy inspection and cleaning.
The 280 litre collector has a remarkable filling capacity. Grass collector is a mesh bag treated with an anti-UV additive and has a steel tubular frame. The audible warning advises the operator to disengage the PTO when the collector is full, thus preventing the obstruction or clogging of the collection chute. Collector dumping is servo-assisted by a gas spring that reduces strain on the operator and is controlled from the driver’s position through the activation of a lever. The bottom of the grass collector can be easily removed for cut-and-drop rear discharge. Mulching is also possible by fitting the optional kit to the collection deck.
GTR is powered by commercial 2-cyclinder petrol engines of 16 and 20 HP, designed for industrial applications and hence high performance even in most demanding operating conditions. The engines feature a number of advanced technologies and integrated components such as Over Head Valves (OHV) for low vibration, lower emissions and better fuel economy. While the dual air filter and the pressure lubrication system with oil filter protect the engine and extend its working life. The large 19 liter fuel tank allows for longer work periods without refueling and is equipped with a convenient fuel level gauge.
