The FD2200’s out-front deck ensures, together with a comfortable driving position, excellent visibility over the area to be cut. The floating deck produces a regular and precise cut even on undulating ground. Its cutting quality and collection is extraordinary, particularly in conditions of high, wet grass. The deck houses two contra-rotating blades fitted with swing tips, these are then attached to disks which help prevent damage should unseen debris be struck. The deck is also fitted with anti-scalp wheels, whilst the two front deck wheels are solid rubber.
The cutting height adjustment has 8 positions and is altered by activating on 4 pivot points. The cut grass is propelled into the high performance hydraulic turbine which is protected by a shock-resistant valve. The turbine is 400 mm in diameter and has 5 wear resistant steel propeller blades which are 8 mm thick. Its outer casing consists of two easily interchangeable wear resistant shells made of 5 mm steel.
The FD2200 is also extremely effective in collecting Autumn leaves; in order to increase its performance the deck is fitted with adjustable baffles. The grass catcher incorporates an oscillating chute which allows the catcher to fill evenly and,when full, a sensor will stop the blades, thereby avoiding any blockage in the collecting system. The FD2200 is able to raise its grass catcher to a height of 210 cm and then protrude out 50 cm, allowing the clippings to be easily emptied into a truck or container.
The Grillo FD2200 has a high hourly output in large open park areas, sports facilities, and even in more complex areas full of obstacles, such as plants or trees, due to its high manoeuvrability, its extremely small turning radius plus the machine’s short wheelbase. Its stability when cutting across or up slopes is very impressive due to its well designed weight distribution and the diff-lock, which is operated automatically or manually.
The innovative permanent 4-wheel-drive, allows, via its hydraulic diff-lock, maximum traction without slipping under most conditions and also without damaging the grass, even if the steering is at its maximum angle. The turf tyres and their broad width give a very small footprint, even when the grass catcher is full. The pivoting rear axle ensures drive to all 4 wheels even when mowing on undulating ground. There are no problems when mounting pavements or kerbs for the Grillo FD2200 4WD.
The Grillo FD2200 is manufactured with an extremely robust and strong chassis; the reinforced cutter deck is protected in all areas that are exposed to wear and its grass catcher has an over sized support for strength and stability. During the design of the machine a large percentage of high resistant steel was used. The machine’s hydraulic components are sourced from the world’s leading manufacturers.
The Grillo FD2200 is fitted with the latest Yanmar 4TNV88 4-cylinder diesel engine, it produces 44HP at only 2600 rpm and is mounted on rubber isolation blocks for smooth performance. The liquid cooled engine has a self-cleaning radiator; the hydraulic cooling fan is able to reverse its rotation in order to eliminate all debris from the radiator screen. The system is automatic and is controlled by a sensor, or it can be activated manually. The hydraulic multi-disk PTO-clutch with built-in blade brake, is activated by a push-button, ensuring both reliability and durability. The lining of the blade brake is adjustable so that its efficiency can be maintained as the lining wears. The PTO engagement is independent from that of the impeller.
The FD2200,s high driving position is ergonomic and has been developed in order to protect the operator from fatigue during extended working hours. The operators seat is wide, comfortable, adjustable and has arm-rests. The grass catcher and the cutter decks controls are operated by a hydraulic lever distribution system. The folding, certified ROPS bar is standard equipment as is the lighting kit which is fully homologated for road use. The optional operators cab has excellent visibility,a heating, and air conditioning kit are available on request.
Apart from the standard 155cm cutter deck with its mulch kit there is also the possibility to purchase various other useful implements such as a snow blade, 150cm flail or a 160cm three bladed deck which can be used in a side or rear discharge configuration or if conditions are right in a mulching mode. All of the cutter decks can easily be raised for cleaning and maintenance.
All components, from the simplest to the most complex, are of a high standard. The chassis, cutting transmission, cutter deck, are all built by Grillo using premium materials and cutting edge technology. All this in order to achieve a constant 100% quality control level.
Painting of Grillo machines incorporates a double electrostatic powder coating process. At the first stage are the washing baths and preparation, then a first protective coat is applied which is then baked in a special oven, this has proven to be the best base for the application of the finish. The second coat consists of powder coating and still further baking in an oven at 190°C, this then produces the characteristic hardness and shine. All FD2200s are assembled with care in every detail and tested scrupulously by specialized personnel. Final inspection includes running the engine in order to check all its functions to ensure a further and final guarantee of a first class product.
