The decks on this heavy-duty cutter, designed by Farm King from the ground up, are manufactured using 7 gauge steel. A deck protection ring minimizes stress on the deck while the stump jumper protects the mower deck and allows the assembly to glide over uneven terrain. The streamline deck design maintains strength and prevents buildup. Standard equipment such as a single chain guard attached to the entire deck limits the possibility of flying debris.
The suspension on the Farm King 1530 individually isolates each wheel assembly from the machine, reducing road vibration and terrain roughness. This provides a smoother ride and reduces shock stress on the frame, axle and driveline.
Each blade is heat-treated to enhance rigidity, while the heavy-duty gearbox is designed to be rugged and durable. The access panel located on the deck makes it easy to inspect, clean or replace the blades if necessary. The blades also have an industry-leading 7" overlap to make sure you get the best cut the first time.
