GIBSON CITY, Ill. — Rhino introduced its newly redesigned single spindle mower at the recent National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky. The updated 272 model offers a smoother design backed by new durable features.
“Rhino continues to look for ways to make our strong and dependable equipment last even longer,” said Greg Pollock, Sales and Marketing Director for Rhino’s Ag Division. “And we are proud that the new 272 single spindle features do just that.”
Some innovative features of the single spindle include the newly designed smooth top and bottom decks and updated gearbox. The sleekness of the top deck reduces material buildup while the bottom increases airflow for a superior cut. The improved gearbox design features precision-machined gears for optimum performance.
Engineered for outstanding strength and durability, the single spindle includes flexible rubber deflectors mounted at rear corners of the cutting deck to prevent gouging and damage to the deck. Shouldered bushings are at all pivot locations to reduce wear and provide a longer service life. Vertically mounted skid shoes with optional reversible full-length skids are also available to protect the mower and the landscape.
“We’ve reviewed our single spindles top to bottom to make upgrades that provide the most durable product to our customers,” added Lyndon Dittus, Rhino’s Customer Service Manager. “From the deck to the gearbox, the 272 will provide an exceptional cut that withstands tough landscapes.”
