The model 3696 Articulator is the largest, most efficient riding mower available. It cuts a path 96 inches wide, has all the mobility of a zero-turn unit, and can consistently mow 6.79 acres per hour. The center of gravity is low enough to handle the most severe slopes and still deliver an unbeatable cut.
