The entire operator platform (seat and foot plate) is suspended to deliver a smooth ride, with only three moving parts.
Smart: Unlike more complicated, conventional suspension systems, there are no moving parts on the drive and caster wheels, and no moving counter levers that link the suspension system to the cutter deck to combat scalping.
The Cheetah™ Operator Suspension System eliminates the possibility of the suspension causing a quality-of-cut issue and is superior to “cushioned” caster forks which can also affect quality-of-cut. Smart.
Simple: With only three moving parts, including the shock, pivot points are at a minimum. Fewer pivot points means fewer maintenance items and wear points. The suspension adjustment lever simply changes the angle of the shock, providing a firmer or softer ride. Simple.
Spacious: The Cheetah features a large, all-steel foot platform with an extruded tread pattern. Unlike flat steel or a rubber pad, the extruded tread pattern allows dirt and debris to fall through the plate while providing solid footing, even when wet. The adjustable, bolstered seat, folding armrests and Quick-Fit™ control levers provide a comfortable environment for a wide range of operators.
