Wright Manufacturing recently introduced 2 lines of Velke hydro-powered walk-behind mowers: the HC series and LC series. The HC series is available with 32-, 36- or 48-inch cutting decks, while the larger LC series offers 52- and 61-inch decks. All sizes can be equipped with either a fixed or floating deck.
The new Velkes feature large, lightweight tires that are gentle to turf. The HC series is ideal for mowing medium-size properties and tight spaces. Although the larger LC models have larger tires, reinforced frames and a wider stance, they still offer low impact on commercial properties. Each model is ideally balanced to mow on slopes and climb curbs. The intuitive controls are easy to squeeze, and they isolate vibration. The flat-free caster tires increase maneuverability, even in tight spaces.
An integrated Velke sulky latch is provided on all HC and LC models. The operator has a choice of walking or riding when a Velke sulky is attached, and the latch secures the sulky in a folded position when the operator chooses to walk.
