Spring Mower Maintenance Tips

February 19th, 2015

While much of the country is still locked in winter weather, it’s not too early to prepare your mowers for the coming of spring. While Exmark machines are built to last, even in the toughest conditions, they’ll last a lot longer with with proper maintenance.

Here are a few ways to help your equipment perform at its best this spring:

Exmark Engine Oil

Oil is the life blood of your engine, so it makes sense to start the season off with a fresh oil change.

  • Change the gas and oil soon after taking out your mower. Gas that has been sitting in the tank throughout the winter degrades in quality and can cause hard starting and/or inconsistent performance. Old, contaminated oil can cause serious engine damage as well, so when in doubt, change it out.
  • Check the blades before any big job. Few parts can affect cut quality and mower performance as dramatically as sharp, balanced blades. With a little practice, you can change a set of blades and be mowing in less than five minutes, and the higher quality cut quality and increased productivity will make it well worth your time.
  • Clean your mower inside and out. Dirt and grass clippings can build up and reduce the performance of your machine. Minimize the use of water for cleaning whenever possible. Instead, use compressed air. A clean cutting deck offers improved air flow and capacity, allowing you to get more work done with better results.
  • Exmark blades

    Sharp, balanced blades are an essential component of cut quality. Exmark offers a variety of blades to optimize performance for different cutting conditions.

    Consult your owners manual for specific service requirements and schedules of your machine. This is essential for proper care of your equipment. Even if you’re a mower maintenance guru, the difference in maintenance procedures and timeframes from one model to the next can be surprising.

  • If something does go wrong, or you have questions or doubts about the maintenance you’re performing, don’t hesitate to call a service professional at your local Exmark dealer. A few well spoken words of wisdom can save a do-it-yourselfer from hours of headache.

Bottom line, it’s not hard to keep your mower maintained, and doing so will maximize the performance and durability of your machine.

How to choose the right Exmark for you

January 22nd, 2015

When it comes time to purchase your next new mower, there are a lot of factors to consider, but making a good decision can go a long way toward making lawn care easier and less time intensive. Here’s a short guide to help you pick the right Exmark mower for your needs.

Budget

For larger properties, a zero-turn rider like this Lazer Z X-Series model is ideal.

For larger properties, a zero-turn rider like this Lazer Z X-Series model is ideal.

The first thing you need to consider when purchasing a new Exmark mower is budget. If you’re looking at Exmark mowers, you probably already understand you need the most durable, dependable mower you can afford. Exmark builds mowers with a wide range of price and performance levels, and budget is an important consideration when determining which model is right for you. Exmark also offers a number of financing options that can make getting the Exmark mower you need. Learn more about current special offers at Exmark.com.

What will you be mowing?

Once you’ve established your budget guidelines, it’s time to consider what it is you’ll be using the mower for. A walk-behind mower such as our Commercial 21 or Commercial 30 models are ideal for homeowners mowing properties of 1/2-acre or less. If gate access to a property isn’t an issue, some landscape professionals may opt for a larger walk-behind or stand-on machine for sub-1/2-acre properties.

For larger properties, most landscape professionals choose a stand-on mower such as our Vantage S-Series, or a zero-turn riding mower like our Lazer Z X-Series or Navigator models. The zero-turn rider has also achieved widespread adoption among home and acreage owners looking to ease the burden of lawn care and get more of their free time back. Popular models among home and acreage owners include the Quest S-Series Front Steer, Pioneer S-Series, and Lazer Z E-Series machines.

Your first stop — Exmark.com

The new Exmark website has a number of resources that can help you dial in on the ideal mower for you, including the ability to compare selected models, find a local Exmark dealer, request personalized quotes on selected models, or schedule an on-site demonstration.

Mowing conditions and needs vary across the country, so your local Exmark dealer is a great resource when it comes time to select a new mower. Nobody is more closely in-touch with the types of turf and environmental conditions in your area, and they can quickly and easily help you understand your options. Plus, you can schedule a demonstration online for one or more Exmark machines, which can give you a first-hand perspective on the mower size and features that will work best for your needs.

Exmark Introduces New Accessories for Navigator

January 8th, 2015

Available rotary broom and powered hopper lift options increase ease-of-use, multi-season utility

Exmark has expanded the accessories available for the Navigator dedicated bagging riding mower to include a rotary broom attachment, as well as a powered hopper lift system. The new accessories increase productivity and versatility for professional landscape contractors.

The powered hopper lift makes it incredibly easy to dump clippings from the Navigator's hopper.

The powered hopper lift makes it incredibly easy to dump clippings from the Navigator’s hopper.

“When we redesigned the Navigator in 2013, one of our goals was to make the machine easier to operate,” said Exmark Director of Marketing, Daryn Walters. “The powered hopper lift option gives Navigator operators the ability to empty a full load of clippings at the touch of a finger. Nothing could be easier.”

In addition to the powered hopper lift system, Exmark has also introduced a rotary broom for the Navigator. This not only increases the machine’s versatility during the cutting season, it expands the potential uses for the Navigator well beyond the cutting season.

According to Exmark Parts and Accessories Marketing Manager, Mark Aldendifer, the rotary broom is designed to perform in a variety of applications, from thatch reduction to snow removal, thanks to two available brush materials.

“Versatility is the name of the game with the Navigator rotary broom attachment. It is shipped with the heavy-duty black bristle set – optimal for snow and general debris removal. We also offer an optional yellow turf bristle set, which has been optimized for dethatching operations.”

The Navigator rotary broom allows angle adjustment of 20-degrees left or right, quickly from the driver’s seat.

The rotary broom attachment expands the usefulness of the Navigator well beyond the cutting season.

The rotary broom attachment expands the usefulness of the Navigator well beyond the cutting season.

A factory-authorized aftermarket accessory, Exmark partnered with M-B Companies, Inc. for manufacturing and sales of the Navigator rotary broom. The system requires installation of a quick hitch (sold separately). Once dealer installation of the quick hitch is complete, the rotary broom fits-up quickly without tools.

The Navigator’s large 9.5-bushel collection hopper increases productivity by allowing operators to spend more time mowing and less time managing the hopper. To further increase the productivity of the Navigator, Exmark developed an exclusive fill-reduction system, which increases the versatility of the machine by allowing the operator to quickly and easily switch from dedicated bagging to fill-reduction mode (30 percent bagging, 70 percent mulching), or 100 percent mulching.

Exmark offers the Navigator with a choice of 42- or 48-inch cutting decks. The floating design precisely tracks ground contours to virtually eliminate scalping. Patented flow-control baffles and a large-diameter blower allow the Navigator to generate massive airflow for increased vacuuming action and a superior, manicured quality of cut.

The 4 5/8-inch deep cutting deck features a rear-discharge design for superior clipping flow-through, reduced noise and the ability to trim on both sides of the deck. Constructed of high-strength welded steel, the Navigator cutting deck also features heavy-duty gear-driven spindle assemblies to deliver superior reliability and long-term durability.

The Navigator features Exmark’s FeatherTouch controls, which deliver smoother, more precise control for effortless maneuvering, even in tight spaces. Updated to reduce control force and provide a more consistent feel throughout lever travel, the FeatherTouch controls are easy-to-operate and offer an increased range of adjustment to precisely fit a wide range of operator sizes.

Two powerful Kohler engine options are available for the 2014 Navigator, including the CH640 Command V-twin, and the ECH730 Command EFI V-twin with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI). Both engines feature heavy-duty cyclonic air filters and a Lazer Z-style hour meter module and harness for improved on-board diagnostics.

The Navigator features Superior Gear gearbox assemblies with spiral-bevel cut gears for quiet operation. Each gearbox is independently sealed to prevent cross-contamination or loss of lubricant, and Exmark engineers use 3/8-inch hardware to connect all gearboxes and shaft tubes for increased reliability and strength. Additionally, Premium Timken tapered roller bearings are used to ensure superior durability and long life.

The new accessories join a long list of productivity and versatility enhancing accessories for the Navigator, including:

  •  Custom suspension seat
  •  48-inch snow blade
  •  44-inch snow blower
  •  Mulching kit
  •  Light kit
  •  Dump Tubs

Remove Snow Better with the Exmark 36-inch Rotary Broom

December 4th, 2014

We designed the Exmark 36-inch Rotary Broom to deliver four season utility. It’s incredibly effective at cleaning virtually any surface, and while many folks don’t think of a rotary broom as the ideal tool for snow removal, few machines can match its effectiveness and speed when it comes time to clear snow from sidewalks, driveways and other areas.

The standard black brush set is optimized for snow removal and concrete cleaning.

A number of features make the 36-inch Rotary Broom an ideal tool for snow removal. The standard black brush discs are optimized for snow and concrete use, while softer yellow brush discs are available for turf use. A robust pin-type height adjustment system facilitates positive ground engagement and easy leveling with adjustments in 1/8-inch increments.

The patented power steering system uses fingertip controls to control turns, making steering and reversing easy, and an available tire chain kit delivers enhanced traction in snowy or icy conditions. The machine includes independent controls for the brush and ground drive systems, and the brush can be angled up to 20-degrees right-or-left with fingertip controls.

A simple 180-degree twist is all it takes to optimize performance of the Kohler Command Pro engine for cold or warm weather.

A simple 180-degree twist is all it takes to optimize performance of the Kohler Command Pro engine for cold or warm weather.

The powerful Kohler Command Pro single-cylinder engine features a multi-season cyclonic air filter design. In winter, a simple 180-degree twist of the air filter cover allows the engine to receive pre-warmed air from the engine manifold for increased cold weather performance. Other features including a cast-iron cylinder liner, forged steel crankshaft and all-metal 4.2 quart (4.0 liter) gasoline tank further enhance reliability and durability in commercial use.

New Quest S-Series Front Steer delivers zero-turn performance with steering wheel ease-of-use

Exmark QuestS-Series FrontSteer_FrontRight_cr

A standard tilt steering column provides easy operator access and exceptional comfort in use.

Exmark has redesigned its popular Quest family of zero-turn riding mowers and added a new steering wheel-equipped version. Users can now choose their preferred control setup and experience Exmark zero-turn performance and productivity.

Exmark Director of Marketing, Daryn Walters, said the new Quest models are the most affordable line of zero-turn riders the company offers, yet they deliver class-leading features and value.

“We’ve made the new Quest models more comfortable and productive, with Exmark’s renowned durability and long-term value. And the Quest S-Series Front Steer delivers unmatched ease-of-use combined with enhanced hillside performance.”

The steerable front wheels increase hillside control and provide a familiar handling feel with true zero-turn mower performance. A standard tilt steering column eases operator access and increases comfort while mowing.

Despite being our most affordable zero-turn rider, the 2015 Quest E-Series delivers genuine Exmark performance.

The Quest S-Series model is also available with a twin-stick control system for operators accustomed to traditional zero-turn riders. For 2015, Exmark added a 34-inch UltraCut Series 2 cutting deck option to the existing 42- or 50-inch options. The UltraCut Series 2 decks are fabricated from high-strength 10-gauge steel, and the Quest S-Series includes a standard foot pedal-operated deck lift. An upgraded 18-inch Deluxe seat features a distinctive tri-color cover and bolstered design to increase operator comfort.

The new 54-inch deck delivers unmatched productivity to make quick work of farms, acreages and other properties. All Quest E-Series machines feature an 18-inch extra-tall seat for comfort that lasts.

A standard dual-barrel carburetor delivers increased air flow for stronger performance and cast iron cylinder liners provide increased long-term engine durability.

The new Exmark engine also features an innovative air intake design that reduces dust and debris build-up with a constant flow of pre-screened air. The design of the air box cover and air filter virtually eliminate the possibility of an incorrectly installed filter allowing engine-killing dust and debris into the engine.

A standard quick-drain system eases oil changes by offering the ability to drain oil without tools. The long drain hose eliminates the messiness traditionally associated with draining the oil from the engine, and the design dramatically reduces the time required for routine oil changes.

How to Mow Your Lawn like a Pro

November 13th, 2014

When you have a lawn that you are proud of, you want to take good care of it so it stays in excellent shape. One of the things that can make a huge difference in the appearance of your lawn is how you choose to mow it. The famous lawns on sports fields and golf courses look the way they do because of the way they are mowed. Follow these tips to mow your lawn like a pro. Lazer_Z_X-Series_Outdoor_004

Professional Mowing Tips

  1. Mow your lawn when the grass is dry. This is typically in the late afternoon or early evening after the dew on your lawn has dried. When the grass is wet, it can clog the blades of your mower, and because the grass is slippery, you cannot mow it as evenly.
  2. Put a roller behind your mower. The lines that you see on professional fields stand out because of the way the grass is bent. There is a rubber tail on the back of your lawn mower that is made to bend the grass, but it will not do a good job unless you add some weight to it. You can add some weights to the rubber tail, or even make your own by attaching a door mat to the back of your mower so it drags behind it. To get lines across the lawn, you can start by mowing around the perimeter, then mow back and forth in opposite directions, and finish by mowing the perimeter again.
  3. Keep your grass long, and cut it regularly. The grass will bend better and look better if you keep it between two and four inches long. It will look best if you mow regularly so it doesn’t grow out too long. Once a week is usually a good schedule to keep for mowing your lawn. When your grass is a little longer, it will actually be healthier too.
  4. Get a trimmer for your lawn. You can purchase a weed whacker or other type of lawn trimmer to cut around the edge of your lawn. It is worth it to invest in one and use it after you mow every week. This will create a clean edge for the lawn.

Increase Profitability and Customer Satisfaction with Lawn Care Services

November 4th, 2014
New stand-on machines including spreader sprayers and aerators increase productivity and reduce employee fatigue, which leads to increased revenue and profitabilty.

New stand-on machines increase the profitability of lawn care services by increasing the productivity each employee is capable of, while reducing employee fatigue to make performing the services more sustainable.

According to the 2014 LM150 report from Landscape Management magazine, seven of the country’s top-25 landscape maintenance companies are also in the top-25 lawn care companies. As competition in the maintenance category increases, an increasing number of landscape maintenance professionals are adding lawn care services as a way to deliver increased customer satisfaction while also increasing profitability.

Thanks to recent advances in stand-on lawn care equipment such as aerators and spreader sprayer machines, landscape professionals can deliver high quality lawn care services more profitably than ever. New machines such as the Exmark spreader sprayer offer greater flexibility in the chemicals used for weed and pest control, allowing lawn care professionals to do more with each pass of the machine.

The addition of high-quality lawn care services can help to grow maintenance business and grow your status as an expert at delivering beautiful, well-manicured landscapes among your customers.

The addition of high-quality lawn care services can help to grow maintenance business and grow your status as an expert at delivering beautiful, well-manicured landscapes among your customers.

Exmark estimates the switch from a 21-inch walk-behind aerator to a 30-inch stand-on machine can be paid back in 2-3 weeks. Lawn care professional Kent Harlan said he has made enough money to pay for his $9,500 Exmark spreader sprayer in 2-3 days.

In a competitive marketplace, the addition of lawn care services is a competitive advantage for an existing maintenance business. Today more than ever, customers want to hire a lawn care expert that can deliver a beautiful, manicured, weed-free yard. They don’t want to deal with one contractor for maintenance and another contractor for aeration, fertilization or weed control. As such, the opportunity exists to make more money for contractors willing to add the lawn care services customers want and need.

Today, it’s easier than ever to add lawn care services to an existing maintenance business.

When deciding which services to add, listen to customer feedback to learn which services have the most demand.

Employee training is important for the quality delivery of lawn care services. Additionally, certification and licensing are required for landscape professionals looking to add fertilization or chemical application services. In most states, certification and licensing are coordinated by the Department of Agriculture, or Office of State Chemist.

Exmark Expands Lawn Care Line with Stand-On Spreader Sprayer

October 22nd, 2014

New machine introduces new technologies that deliver increased productivity and profitability

Exmark today announced the introduction of a new Stand-On Spreader Sprayer to its lawn care equipment line. The new machine offers a number of innovations that increase versatility, maneuverability, performance and productivity for lawn care professionals.

The Exmark Spreader Sprayer features exclusive Lean-To-Steer control system, which allows one-handed direction and speed control, leaving the other hand free to perform spot treatments, or adjust sprayer or spreader controls on-the-fly.

The Exmark Stand-On Spreader Sprayer features an exclusive Lean-To-Steer control system, which allows one-handed direction and speed control. This leaves the other hand free to perform spot treatments or adjust sprayer or spreader controls on-the-fly.

The Exmark Stand-On Spreader Sprayer introduces the company’s exclusive Lean-to-Steer controls, which give operators the ability to easily steer and control forward or reverse speed with one hand. This frees the other hand to operate the sprayer/spreader controls, or perform spot spraying with the easily-accessible spray wand. Padded knee bolsters on three sides of the operator provide additional comfort and stability.

An intuitive control layout makes it easy to operate controls and make adjustments from the operator position. Exmark developed an innovative controller for the pump and spinner motor, to give the operator control of the spinner speed and provide operational alerts for the pump or spinner motor. The controller allows adjustment of spinner speed to meet broadcast requirements from between four and 22 feet. The operator can also lock the spinner speed adjustment to avoid inadvertently changing machine speed on the go.

With separate, selectable narrow (5.5 feet) and wide (11 feet) spray nozzles, the Exmark Stand-On Spreader Sprayer is functional on virtually any property. The 20-gallon tank is easy to fill and drain, with graduation marks for accurate mixing. Two induction nozzles inside the tank provide spray mixture agitation that keeps even wettable powders in suspension to deliver unmatched spray versatility and consistency.

Spreader controls are located at the operator’s fingertips for maximum ease-of-control. The Spyker spreader system is well-known among lawn care professionals for its ease-of-use and consistent performance. Innovative controls allow lateral adjustment of the spread pattern, on-the-go, from the operator’s position.

The Exmark Stand-On Spreader Sprayer makes quick work of virtually any spreading or spraying job.

The Exmark Spreader Sprayer is powered by a single-cylinder Subaru EX27 commercial engine. The machine is capable of carrying 175-pounds of material in the hopper, with the ability to carry up to 50-pounds of bagged material on-top of the tank. A soft hopper cover is included to protect material from moisture and during transport.

The corrosive properties of many fertilizers and chemicals led Exmark to design a robust stainless steel main frame and powder coated control tower for the Stand-On Spreader Sprayer. A stainless steel operator platform includes isolation mounts for a more comfortable ride, and the platform locks up for storage or transport. The design delivers the long-term durability lawn care professionals expect, and the compact design of the machine increases maneuverability and ease-of-transport.
