The AFM4216 provides excellent cut quality and performance on lush turf grasses on expansive and well manicured areas such as sports fields, theme parks, fairways, turf farms, and large estates. It offers independent deck flotation and zero turning radius thanks to the sleek frame design. When transporting the AFM4216 from one mowing site to another the hydraulic wing cylinders will easily lift the wing decks for a 8'5" transport width -- especially critical on a public streets or rights-of-way. The contour-following capability, highly productive cutting widths, and rear discharge design of the floating decks will greatly reduce wide-area cutting times and still deliver beautifully groomed surfaces at mowing speeds up to 6 mph. - Less

Counter rotation on left hand deck
Spreads grass clippings more evenly. Wing decks throw grass away from the rear deck. Rear deck doesn't get covered up nor does it get bogged down by cut grass.
Narrow 6'-8" transport width
Not much wider than most tractors, making for safer transport. Meets most city/county codes for transport width
8" Deck overlap (AFM4216)
Allows for maximum amount of wing deck flex.
Sleek frame design, including single beam hitch and compact deck overlap
Design allows operator to make tighter turns without leaving windrows and skips. The AFM virtually becomes a zero turn mower.
Automatic transport wing locks
When wings are raised in the full transport position, the wings lock in place, no need to get off the tractor to lock. Pull rope from tractor seat to unlock.
23" Transport tires with tapered bearings
23" Transport tires offer smooth roading and less grass compaction. Allows grass to stand up. Tapered roller bearings offer longevity.
Removable transportation tire spindles
Allows a spindle to be replaced by simply removing two bolts.
Back wheels on side decks even with transportation tires
Allows tighter turns without skips.
Rigid rear side deck tires
Rigid wheel yokes holds hills and slopes better. Safer unit than the competition.
Large deck flotation tires with sealant
Optional 15" tires for great flotation or 18" tires for even greater flotation. The larger the tire the less compaction in pounds per square inch allowing grass to stand up. Sealant in the tires minimizes flats.
1/4" Gauge wheel arms
Gives the mower gauge wheel arms a great deal of "hidden" strength.
Low pivot points on deck
The lower the pivot points are to the ground, the more side to side swing, allowing for excellent flotation from each deck.
Deflectors built into mower decks
Safety features meet ANSI standards. Many competitors use chains for protection. Once chains are removed the unit may not meet ANSI specifications.
Even dispersal, discharged items are always aimed downward. No rear chains are needed, which tend to clump damp grass.
Cat. 4 CV main drive-line
Constant velocity main drive-line allows for tighter turns without harming U-joints in drive-line, includes slip clutch.
Slip clutch protection
Guards against premature gearbox failure. Protects mower deck spindles.
Cat. 2 wing drive-lines
Reduces start-up torque that is put on the drive-line, gearbox and gearbox support.
Heavy gearbox mounts on center and side mower decks
Handles start up torque.
Gearbox horsepower rating
40 - 70 hp
5 years on parts and labor. Demonstrates our confidence in the gearbox’s quality and lasting performance.
Easy to grease blade spindles
No guards to remove for routine greasing of blade spindles.
Middle spindle sits towards the back of the mower deck
Uses less horsepower and allows material to escape the mower deck easier. The discharge of material is more even. Design eliminates windrowing.
Spring loaded idlers
Applies constant tension to belt to run efficiently.
Easy belt tension release
Easily release belt tension for changing belt or for winter storage.
High blade tip speed
(AFM4216 = 18, 340 fpm) Lifts grass up for a clean cut and efficient discharge of material. Tip rates as high or higher than the competition.
Choice of Blade (Low lift standard, Others available thru parts dept.)
Highly recommended in sandy soils where lifting isn't crucial. Disturbs the soil very little, allowing blades to wear longer.
Medium suction for lifting grass. Requires less HP than high lift.
Greatest suction for lifting grass before cutting. Can take higher HP in tall dense grass. Not recommended in sandy soils.
Perfect for leaf mulching.
Optional Hydraulic Operated Transport Locks
Transport locks can be released easily from the tractor seat while operating the same tractor control lever that raises and lowers the mower decks. Eliminates pulling a rope to release transport locks.
