The F65-4WD has the same functionality as a T Series tractor, but with the added benefit of ‘on demand’ four-wheel drive allowing you to mow on slopes, rough terrain and with reduced scuffing.
Westwood F65-4WD c/w 42″ XRD Deck
A Westwood tractor with the added benefit of four-wheel drive
Westwood tractors are renowned for their cutting and collecting performance on formal lawns. Many British gardens feature slopes or areas where the terrain is uneven or prone to getting water logged. In such circumstances, the F65-4WD excels. Refined, lightweight steering and a tight turning circle enables the F65-4WD garden tractor to manoeuvre around obstacles with ease. Featuring 4TRAC technology, the F65-4WD uses Dynamic Traction Control to sense where grip is required and apply the right amount of drive to the wheels.
The Kawasaki FS481V proves to be one of the most economical-to-run engines available on the market today. Overhead V-valves produce a highly efficient combustion on every stroke of the engine. When it comes to power and performance, the big block engine ensures there is no compromise. Operator comfort level is enhanced thanks to the lower vibration that the 90 degree V-twin configuration engine offers. Kawasaki is renowned for its reliability and durability helped by the cast iron cylinder liners which are fitted as standard on their 4-stroke engine range. Maintenance is kept to a minimum, which means your mower will spend less time in the workshop as the high performance lubrication system, rotating grass screen and dual element air filter makes sure the inside of your engine remains at optimum levels, running for longer in-between service sessions.
4TRAC Technology -Four-wheel drive technology on a Westwood garden tractor, this revolutionary transmission design provides unbeatable heavy-duty four-wheel drive and stability with even weight distribution. The 4TRAC transmission senses the level of grip required at each wheel and applies drive accordingly. This allows you much greater mowing flexibility in difficult and wet conditions. Grass and weeds on slopes can be cut where a standard two-wheel drive ride on mower might struggle. f you want to tow a loaded trailer in slippery conditions, spread salt or clear snow with a snowblade, 4TRAC proves itself invaluable throughout the year.
The Dynamic Traction Control system is available on all F Series tractors. It automatically avoids scuffing and skidding on the grass by varying the speeds of the front wheels as the tractor turns, with the outside wheel moving faster than the inside wheel to compensate. his means you can cut and collect on the finest lawn, wet or dry, and yet have all the versatility of four-wheel drive for slopes and banks.
Every Westwood tractor is fitted with Operating Management System, Westwood’s unique on-board computer. This system works independently from the main functions of the tractor, monitoring the engine, cutter deck and power take-off. It provides an ‘at-a-glance’ view of the operation of your machine – just like a car dashboard display. Most Westwood tractors include low fuel warning and RPM counter. The RPM monitor on the electronic display indicates engine speed. If it falls below the optimum level when cutting dense grass, it is indicated on the dashboard, allowing you to raise the deck or reduce forward speed. This means the best possible cut for the conditions can be achieved.
Electric power take-off – T and F Series tractors feature a push-button controlled power take-off. Operators can choose from three PTO modes:
Position 1 engages the cutter deck only – perfect for rough-cutting without collection.
Position 2 switches on both the tractor and the PTO to drive the Powered Grass Collector – there is no separate lever or control required.
Position 3 will operate the PTO only – ideal for driving powered accessories such as the broadcast spreader or scarifier.
Single pressed steel body – Found on T and F Series tractors, the single pressed steel body is a stronger and more durable alternative to a traditional fabricated unit. It has been specifically designed to reduce water collection points and has been tested to withstand over 500 hours continuous salt spray exposure, thereby helping to eliminate corrosion.
Adjustable seat – All Westwood models feature an ergonomically designed, automotive style sliding seat for greater operator comfort and safety.
The seat can easily be adjusted using the fingertip control lever. An angled adjuster plate moves the operator down and closer to the pedals or up and further away. The seat fitted to four-wheel drive models and the larger V Series tractors has armrests for additional comfort and support. The armrests fold to make getting on and off the tractor easy.
Deck height selection – Precisely control the height of cut. The lightweight deck height selector can be adjusted through nine incremental settings to provide a cutting height of 12mm to 101mm (dependent on type of deck). The lever for the manual lift features a ‘trigger’ style locking system. The T Series and F Series tractors display the current height setting on the dashboard display.
Park brake – The Westwood park brake system is a cleverly designed safety feature. It prevents the tractor from starting unless the brake is engaged. This important safety device is fitted as standard on all Westwood models.
Hydrostatic transmission – The hydrostatic, foot-controlled transmission found on all Westwood tractors is smooth and responsive. It is as easy to operate as the controls on an automatic car. One pedal controls forward speed. Press it further and your speed increases. Release it and you slow down. Take your foot off the pedal and the tractor comes to a complete stop. There is a separate reverse pedal which works in the same way. On a Westwood, there are no gears or clutch pedals to worry about. The hydrostatic transmission is infinitely variable. This means that you have full control over the speed of the tractor at all times.
