The YK series models benefit from a new ‘free and fixed’ resistance bar designed to make turning easier. The resistance bar can also be unlocked easily using a lever installed on the operator’s handlebar.
For further safety, both new YK Series models feature a deadman’s handle that activates automatically if the operator disengages from the machine.
Also located on the operator’s handlebar is the engine stop control that allows the operator to bring the tillers to a dead halt instantly for greater safety.
The use of curved Katana tines allow the YK Series models to achieve improved soil penetration and reduced vibration levels for enhanced operator comfort. The tines can also be installed in the reverse direction for deeper tilling and in harder ground conditions.
