Lee’s Summit, Mo.— Billy Goat Industries is pleased to introduce the SC180H hydrostatic drive sod cutter. Whether it’s a sod replacement or a larger turf removal project, take sod cutting to the
next level with the reliability, simplicity, speed and the precise cut performance of the new SC180H.

Compared to multiple settings on other machines, The SC180H features the easiest to use “Set and Forget” blade depth adjustment where users can simply adjust depth to 2.5 inches with a single lever
from the operator station. The unit comes standard with a rear caster wheel for curved cuts that locks when straight cutting, and operators will appreciate the handle isolation mounts that absorb vibration and offer smooth operation.

Unlike other machines, the SC180H has a variable speed hydrostatic drive that not only allows operators to tailor cutting speed according to the ground condition, but also allows the unit to be transported at 3.5 mph. The drive controls are comfortably under-mounted and include reverse at your fingertips.

The unit’s paddle drive wheels clear mud and improve grip for added control. A heavy-duty front bumper bar along with tie-down points provide for stabile, safe strapping for transportation. For smaller cuts, a 12” blade option is available and the unit is coupled to 5.5 HP of reliable Honda power backed by a three-year warranty.

The Billy Goat Hydro Sod Cutter will be available to ship January, 2014.
