Ariens is adding to its IKON XD range of zero-turn mowers with two new models; the IKON XD 42 and IKON XD 52, both featuring the new 764cc twin cylinder Ariens engine – designed to be powerful yet fuel efficient.
This new engine has an enhanced combustion chamber that burns fuel mixture quicker, resulting in greater combustion efficiency. Couple this with its carburettor and the finely tuned fuel spray it produces and the Ariens engine is one of the most fuel-efficient engines available today – but this doesn’t impact on its power.
The IKON XD 42 Ariens engine is rated at 15.5kW of power @2800RPM whilst the IKON 52 Ariens engine is rated at 16.6kW of power @3000RPM. Both models with the Ariens engine also have over 50Nm of torque for optimum cutting performance. The engine is also easy to maintain thanks to tool less access to the air filter and well positioned oil drain. It is also long lasting and durable thanks to its design and anti-wear components.
The IKON XD’s innovative zero-turn capability means it can turn in its own footprint, ensuring no lawn is left unfinished. This is achieved through its ability to drive and steer from the back wheels via two independent transmissions. This guarantees it not only produces excellent finishes but reduces mowing time by up to 50 percent compared to a garden tractor. Additionally, its fully fabricated commercial style deck with advanced airflow and range of cutting sizes ensures exceptional cutting performance every time.
Furthermore, the high back seat with padded arm rests and large tyres makes it a comfortable ride – perfect for tackling large lawns.
The IKON XD 42 and 52 is now available with the Ariens 764cc engine. For further information on the IKON XD range, contact your dealer.
