The Briggs & Stratton PowerBuilt engine with overhead valve technology is recoil starting and produces 16.5 foot pounds torque. The DR Premier 26-10.5 RS will chomp its way through saplings up to 2″ thick, as well as 8′ tall weeds and brush and 4′ high grass.
Equipped with a 66cm (26″) fixed cutter deck, the machine is wide enough for effective clearing but is still very manoeuvrable. Each tyre features superior lugged treads and is filled with one pint of sealant, making the tyres highly resistant to puncture from sharp sticks, stubble, glass and even nails.
All the operating functions for the machine are located on the control panel or on the hand grips. They are designed to optimise operator comfort with everything at your fingertips, including operator presence, throttle, gear shift, blade engagement and brakes.
The new DR field and brush mower is the first redesign in over 10 years and, following its launch in America two years ago, it has become the most successful range in the company’s history, maintaining its position as the best-selling brush mower in the USA for over 25 years. Busting tough brush is one thing, withstanding years of abuse is another – DR field and brush mowers deliver on both counts.
