MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – Clean-running MaxTorque™ diesel units – MidMount™ Models 325D and 430D and FrontMount™ Models 725DT and 930D – are available with 25- or 30-hp engines that are Tier 4i-compliant and B5-ready, with reserve torque you can feel for superior performance in the toughest mowing conditions.
