Ariens APEX 48R Zero Turn Ride on Mower

The Ariens APEX is quickly being established as THE standard commercial zero-turn across Europe. It performs without compromise no matter how tough the conditions get. Meticulously designed to provide exceptional cut quality, it still remains simple and comfortable to operate and can be configured with ROPS and a rear discharge deck to cater for almost any individual requirement.

The fully tubular steel frame rails are hard-wearing and more resistant to stresses to support loads of the machine with unprecedented strength and stability.

Commercial grade 10-gauge thick steel deck is welded together for superior strength, durability and impact resistance.

The belt-tension technology is self-adjusting and keeps the tension constant to maximise belt life, minimise wear and maintain a consistent, high quality cut.

A foot-operated deck lift system, with simple pin selection, provides easy adjustment between 15 cutting positions in 6mm (0.2″) increments.

The Deck panel gives convenient access to blade spindles and belts for fast and easy cleaning and maintenance.

Featuring a plush, adjustable high-back seat is fitted with padded armrests for greater comfort over extended periods of mowing.
