The DR Power 17.5 HP PRO 26 is their most powerful 26″ brush mower with 20% more power than the 14.5 HP model, power steering, a full pressure oil pump for excellent mowing on slopes, and the ability to take out tough brush (including saplings up to 2.5″ thick).
Power Steering makes the 17.5 PRO 26 a nimble performer. Each wheel has an independent disc brake that lets you turn on a dime. Plus, if you’re mowing across slopes, you can feather the uphill brake to improve the machine’s tracking and traction.
The 26″ deck is wide enough for effective clearing but is still very maneuverable. Unlike rigid, fixed decks found on some mowers, the DR deck pivots from side to side, allowing it to follow the contours of rough terrain. This feature minimizes scalping and improves traction.
Our decks are enclosed on 3 sides, so that cut material is chopped and re-chopped, reducing grass and brush to a fine mulch. This means less material is left behind in your field, and none of the windrows you get with side-discharging mowers.
And, speaking of hills, the 17.5 HP PRO 26 is a great choice for hilly properties because it includes a full-pressure oil pump–so you can mow on slopes of up to 20° and be assured of plenty of good lubrication to all parts of the engine.
This engine also gives you the convenience of convenient turn-key electric starting, so you never have to leave the operator’s position to start or stop the machine. This model’s extra displacement (500cc) also provides the extra “oomph” needed to power through saplings up to 2.5″ thick!
The legendary power, performance, and durability of Briggs & Stratton® engines make them the obvious choice for our Walk-Behind Field and Brush Mowers. With the PRO 26 17.5 HP model, you step up to a Briggs Intek Series engine, with a full-pressure oil pump (great for positive lubrication even on side slopes), spin-off oil filter, 481 cc of displacement, cast-iron cylinder sleeve, and easy, turn-key electric-starting.
