PRO XL-30, 16.5 HP Electric-Start



Power steering and a 30" cut! The 16.5 PRO XL features power steering for turn-on-a-dime maneuverability, even in the roughest conditions. Its 30" wide, pivoting deck and big 16.5 HP engine will power through the toughest growth.

  • 30" Wide-Cut Pivoting Deck - The 30" deck is wide enough for fast field clearing, but is still very maneuverable. Unlike rigid, fixed decks found on some mowers, the DR deck pivots from side to side, allowing it to follow the contours of rough terrain. This feature minimizes scalping and improves traction.
  • Adjustable Handlebars - A comfortable working height is important, especially when traversing rough terrain.
  • Attachments Add 4-Season Versatility - Thanks to our quick-change coupling system, the DR’s brush mowing deck can be swapped—in just minutes—with one of our optional PTO attachments: a 42" finish mower, a 30" snow thrower, a wood chipper, or a 42" grader blade. It's like owning 5 machines in one!
  • Big, Lugged Tires for Sure Traction - No other brush mower has tires like this. They’re the biggest (18" x 6.5" x 8"), they have superior lugged treads that pull the mower through or over just about anything, and they are sealant filled...which means they’re highly resistant to puncture. Tough as nails, apparently!
  • Built to Take a Beating - Field and brush mowing is a bruising business, and underbuilt mowers don’t survive long out where the tough stuff grows. We frame our machines with heavy-duty, laser cut steel, and reinforce key stress spots so you get a product that will withstand years of use and abuse.
  • Commercial Grade Electric Clutch - Our industry-leading, self-adjusting clutch is designed for easy access and quick swapping out of optional attachments. After 245 hours of testing we only used up 10% of the life of the clutch. There are no cables to stretch or idler pulleys to get out of adjustment.
  • Custom-Made Blade Spindle - Made of 1.375" thick cast iron with oversized double sealed bearings, the blade spindle is integrated into the deck housing and reinforced for vibration-free performance. Designed to provide years of maintenance-free use (and abuse!).
  • Ergonomic Controls - Both on the control panel and on the grips, all DR Field and Brush Mowers controls are designed to optimize operator comfort and minimize hand fatigue. Everything you need is right at your fingertips, so there is no walking around the mower to make adjustments.
  • Gear-Driven Transmission: Lock it in and Rip it up! - Unlike hydrostatic drives, the DR's geared transmission lets you lock in your ground speed, leaving your hands free to steer the machine across uneven terrain (instead of fussing with touchy throttle controls as you go). With 3 forward gears, you can choose a fixed pace that’s right for you.
  • Heavy-Duty Powder Coating - Our frames and decks are finished with a tough, durable powder coating that resists scratching and promotes long life.
  • Power Steering is Easy on You! - Our disc brake system provides Power Steering. Each wheel is equipped with its own brake, operated by a hand lever. Just squeeze the brake on one side, and the mower will pivot easily around that wheel. You’re in control...without wrestling the machine!
  • Powerful Engine - This PRO XL-30 model is powered by an electric-starting 16.5 HP (500cc) Briggs and Stratton Professional Series engine with overhead valve and cast-iron cylinder sleeve for long life. Warranted for 2 years (1 year in commercial use)
  • Superior Mulching - Our decks are enclosed on 3 sides, so that cut material is chopped and re-chopped, reducing grass and brush to a fine mulch. This means less material is left behind in your field, and none of the windrows you get with side-discharging mowers.
