Pro-Max Mowing System:
The Progressive Pro-Max Mowing System is a 5 deck finishing mower that is the combination of the highly successful Progressive TD92 and the PM-36. Together they provide a wide 36 foot cut swath and give a whole new meaning to productivity! Often growers will begin with the 22’ wide TD92 and add a PM-36 at a later date to meet their increased production needs. A Pro-Max Mowing System requires two double acting hydraulic circuits, one with float capability.
Bolt-on Deck Shell:
Painted or Galvanized Versions Available For producers who grow in sandy, or acidic soil conditions, the bolton design allows for inexpensive replacement of the deck shell if necessary. The bolt-on shell feature is made possible because only Progressive uses a separate deck and frame design. The galvanized deck shell option of the PM-36 provides added protection necessary for a long service life in conditions where rusting is a concern.
Designed for the real world:
The PM-36 mowing deck is designed to provide even dispersion of clippings through a large open rear discharge, avoiding clumping and windrows. Only minutes are required to change the cutting height from 3/4″ to 5″ – without the use of tools. Easy clipping clean out is incorporated into the deck frame design.
Commonality of Parts:
For simple servicing and part availability, many key components are common between the PM-36 and TD92. For instance, all 5 mower deck components are totally interchangeable. This keeps the stock of spare parts required to a minimum and uptime to the max!
Maintenance Free Blade Spindles
Developed and tested over several years, Maintenance Free Blade Spindles are used to both lower the cost and time spent on routine maintenace. They also provide peace of mind that a missed greasing won’t render the mower out of service.
