Lightbulb Commercial Grade Electric Track Drive

By using 700 WATT industrial grade DC drive motors, the TRX-22-SE track driven remote control slope mower uses all of the Briggs Pro 875 engine's power for mowing grass. It is also handy for driving it around with the engine off.

Briggs Pro 875 with heavy flywheel, electric start, and pressurized filtration is in charge of cutting grass and turning a GM alternator with a 24V regulator and 150 AMP stator to power the electronics for propulsion. This bad boy can stick to the side of a hill like glue with a low center of gravity and its wide foot print for traction making it ideal for the steepest of hills.
Drive it to and from with battery power and when you are ready to start mowing, use the remote to start/stop the engine with one finger and use another finger to drive it around.
Here is an owner's manual video I made to help customers get started.

Why does the picture have a Kawasaki engine on it?

Kawasaki discontinued the FJ-180v engines and we now put Briggs 8.75 pros with the heavy flywheel.

Environmentally friendly?? no. Electric motor instead of gas engine driven... yes. The engine still has to turn the alternator and cut grass.

you could argue more environmentally friendly than 3 guys with oil burning string trimers but less than a herd of goats.
