FW45 Walk Behind Mower

FW45 Walk Behind Mower

The FW45 dual hydrostatic walk behind mower was built from the ground up to meet the demands of professional mowing crews. Its super tough built construction offers a low center point of gravity and the wide wheel stance results in unparalleled traction and stability on hillsides without the need of twin-wheels.

The user friendly design features smooth operation by means of a cruise control bar, independent speed reduction levers, thumb controlled speed override and foot operated return-to neutral controls. The floating deck design in combination with a wide nose wheel enables the deck to react to any inconsistencies in the terrain. Ferris walk-behind mowers are built to withstand the rigours of all day commercial use.

Intuitive speed control

Speed setting by cruise control bar reduces physical strain on hands. The independent hand controlled speed reduction levers are used for direction change, stop and reverse. Independent thumb controlled speed override levers provide easier manoeuvering on inclines.

Easy deck adjustment

The deck is easily adjusted by the single-point quick adjust lever which can be locked away securely. Cutting height: 3,8 - 12,7 cm (1.5" - 5.0") infinitely adjustable from the operator’s position.

Mower deck mounting system

The new mower deck mounting system provides easier deck leveling, improved flexibility over terrain, and more durable wear points for reduced maintenance.
