JR. Sod Cutter – Hydro


Legendary performance meets new transmission technology for easier-to-control, smoother, more stable sod cutting. The Jr. Sod Cutter – Hydro’s innovative hydrostatic, variable-speed transmission lets you power through the cut while its heavy-duty, long-lasting cast-iron gear case and hydraulic cooling system stand up to the toughest demands—whether you’re lifting and relocating sod for landscaped areas or establishing shrub and flower beds.

A specifically designed hydraulic cooling system and Hydro-Gear® BDU transmission—featuring both forward and reverse drive—turn up the power without sacrificing durability.

A user-friendly, color-coded interface makes it easy to adjust blade depth and angle for precise cutting—no matter the soil condition.

Unlock the pneumatic rear caster wheel to easily— and tightly—maneuver around landscaping, then lock it for unmatched precision on straightways.

A rubber isolation mount absorbs shock and machine vibration before they ever reach your hands, saving your arms from fatigue.
