Kubota is broadening its FC mower range by introducing the FC3-221E - a smaller and more adaptable centre-collect machine for various applications.

The 2WD FC3-221E provides operators with full visibility of the mower deck, giving increased control and precision. t comes equipped with a digital instrument display, allowing real-time access to operating information, better informed decision-making and optimised performance.

The mounting and positioning of the mower deck is crafted to follow the contours of the ground. The front-mounted configuration further adds to the performance by generating optimal air pressure beneath the housing, which guarantees a smoother cut and facilitates the seamless flow of grass cuttings to the collector turbine, which lies at the heart of the machine’s functionality. 

The FC3-221E features a 600-litre grass collector, meaning operators can cover significant areas before it requires emptying. It is powered by a Kubota D902 engine, providing the necessary power and torque to drive the hydrostatic transmission and hydraulic system with ease.

The front mower decks are equipped with two pairs of blades per rotor. By eliminating grass traversal before cutting, the two-wheel drive configuration offers greater manoeuvrability and precision in areas inaccessible to mid-mount setups.  

Available in 1.12m (44”) and 1.26m (50”) wide deck variants, the FC3-221E is well-suited for extensive mowing duties yet remains compact and agile for smaller spaces. The new machine is also homologated for driving on public roads, facilitating transfer from one work site to another.
