Large decks for the MH tractor have a new adjustable footrest. First introduced with the DR64R deck, the DS60 and DR52 will now utilize the same design. There are two individual footrests that are easily adjusted in six fore-and-aft positions to suit operator leg lengths. Also, the new footrests retract, and along with a new belt drive cover, allow the deck to tilt up without removing the cover. Deck tilt-up is made easier using stronger counterweight springs and new hook geometry on the deck carrier frame.
New Molded Rubber Side-Discharge Shields
Molded rubber side-discharge shields replace the metal shields on DS42 and DS48 decks, offering increased durability. Heavy metal framing attaches the rubber shield to the deck discharge opening. The new shield assembly will fit on earlier units.
