Challenger - A Great Fit For Commercial and Heavy-Duty Residential Customers

Stand Up Deck
Revolutionary Deck Design

Our patented stand-up deck design allows the deck to be rotated up for quick and easy maintenance and cleaning. It's constructed of heavy, all-welded steel, and not stamped like the competition, with extra reinforcement in strategic areas. A heavy steel bullnose protects the leading edge of the deck. No tools needed to flip the deck! The deck and frame are warranted for five years* against functional bending and cracking regardless of the hours.


Joystick Steering
Easy-to-use Joystick steering

The Challenger features Country Clipper's easy-to-use, revolutionary joystick steering control. The highly responsive Joystick with solid mechanical linkage offers fingertip control of both direction and speed. It’s easy to learn, makes mowing fun, and you sit more naturally. Enjoy having a free hand to move low hanging limbs, or enjoy your favorite beverage. Dual stick steering is also available as an option.


Heavy-duty Hydrostatic Transmissions
Each independent, unitized hydrostatic transmission contains a matched hydraulic pump and motor set, and is completely sealed to prevent nuisance oil leaks. A built-in hydraulic charge pump coupled with special valving combine to give your mower a smooth operating, heavy-duty dual transmission system. Country Clipper optimizes every mower’s drive system by blending engine strength with tire size, the positioning of frame components, and rider ergonomics.
The Challenger features Hydro-Gear ZT-3400 transaxles.

Cast Iron SpindleCast Iron Tough

The Challenger utilizes the same heavy-duty cast iron spindle housing and a 1 1/4” spindle shaft used in our 72" decks, as well as cast iron pulleys, for years of worry-free operation. We machine the spindles ourselves and give them extra shielding to keep out dirt and debris. To say they're over-built would be an understatement.


Fully front and rear baffled deck

Fully Baffled Deck

Country Clipper decks feature a full complement of front and rear deck baffles for a fast, superb quality cut in the finest Kentucky Bluegrass or the toughest southern Bahia grass.


Large anti-scalp rollers
Oversized Deck Rollers

Our 5”-wide anti-scalp rollers are made of a high-impact material that won't break off or crack when they hit an obstacle.


Proven Performance

Operator Presence Controls
Operator Presence Controls

A safety interlock allows the operator to leave the mower while the engine‘s running and the deck is disengaged to move obstacles or make other adjustments.


Handy Cup holder
Why not bring along something refreshing to drink? The Challenger comes standard with a cup holder.



High-back seat
