CHALLENGER Features

Zero-Radius Turning

  • Country Clipper mowers feature zero-radius turning using our popular Joystick or traditional twin lever steering options. 
  • The highly responsive Joystick with solid mechanical linkage offers fingertip control of both direction and speed. It’s so easy to learn, makes mowing fun, and you sit more naturally.
  • Our twin lever steering provides traditional two-handed control, while giving you the same smooth ride.

Versatile Cutting Decks

  • Country Clipper’s revolutionary Stand-up Deck makes underside access for maintenance and cleaning a breeze. Challenger cut width: 52" and 60".
  • Every Country Clipper has a welded steel deck with additional laminated steel sheets at high stress locations and a leading edge triangular bullnose for strength and protection. Included are high impact anti-scalp rollers and 1.4” spindle shafts with cast iron housings.
  • The Challenger features an Pivoting Front Axle & Floating Deck. The deck moves in sync with the pivoting front axle to follow ground contours.

Drive Systems

Country Clipper optimizes each mower’s drive system by blending engine strength with tire size, the positioning of frame components, and rider ergonomics.

Each Challenger uses strong 30 hp Briggs & Stratton Cyclonic, 24 hp Kawasaki FS730 or 27 hp Kohler Command engines to drive top-rated Hydro-Gear ZT-3400 hydrostatic transaxles.

Logical Design

  • Country Clipper has been first with features that truly make a difference, and owners tell us our designs just make more sense than the competition.
  • Country Clipper’s deep, fully baffled decks cut grass and channel clippings much more efficiently … a manicured lawn using less energy.
  • Deck spindles are aligned more exactly so cutting blades move faster and independently of one another with no timing required.
  • Country Clipper’s flexible component frame design allows greater access to working sections of the mower.
  • You won’t find plastic body parts on your built-to-last Country Clipper.

Operator Convenience

  • The unique Joystick steering and speed control lets you sit more naturally while freeing a hand for what’s in the cup holder, or to move that low hanging branch.
  • Wide Front Step and Enhanced Comfort Seat add even more rider comfort to the Challenger.  
  • Country Clipper’s exclusive patented Stand-up Deck eliminates the inconvenience of ramps or hoists for underside deck access.
  • When momentarily leaving the seat, the Operator Presence Control automatically stops blade rotation and the engine.
