42" ROTARY MOWER (Mfr. No. 990190)
Will cut 2 acres per hour. The 3-bladed 42" mower hustles through the biggest jobs, thanks to an extra deep housing and large discharge chute that handle amounts of cut material which would clog most mowers. Equipped with Simplicity's "free-floating" mowing feature; one adjustment quickly controls desired cutting height; won't "scalp". Cuts to within 5/8" of any obstruction on either side. Requires 990211 Center Mounted Power Take-Off. Shipping weight 138 lbs.
