A tough & versatile Rider built with Husqvarna's trademark quality.

With innovations throughout, the RC 318T is a highly manoeuvrable, easy to use machine, available with a choice of Combi decks. 

Outstanding performance from Husqvarna

This model comes with a Briggs & Stratton Endurance two cylinder 656cc engine, giving you reliable power for tough jobs. You can choose for either a 103 cm or 112 cm Combi deck with the RC 318T, working in conjunction with an innovative non-clog collection system that compacts the grass into the collector for greater coverage and more efficient collecting. The decks  are stamped from a single piece of metal, with no seams or sharp bends to trap cuttings.

The deck itself is front-mounted, which gives you the option of cutting beneath bushes and under obstacles, as well as ensuring you can see exactly what you are mowing at all times. You are able to adjust the cut height from the driver's seat too. The pitch angle can also be tuned for a perfect finish at all times.

Impressive manoeuvrability & handling

The RC 318T benefits from articulated steering, providing you with the agility to drive around obstacles like bushes, trees and flowerbeds. The rear axle pivots, increasing traction on the drive wheels and giving a smoother ride on uneven surfaces. Similarly, the cutting deck uses pivoting wheels to make operation smoother through turns and helping to protect the lawn's surface. This is also assisted by four large wheels, which have the added bonus of ensuring a comfortable ride and increased accessibility.

Due to the pedal-operated hydrostatic transmission, you are able to keep your hands on the steering wheel while controlling your speed and forward or reverse direction. This makes the machine as a whole easier to control, while the rear-mounted engine also provides you with a better overview of what you are mowing, and reduces emissions and noise in the driver's area.

A great rider to work with

As well as being comfortable to drive, the RC 318T is also simple to operate, with features such as easy access controls, a turn key start with no choking needed, and automatic blade engagement when the cutter deck is lowered all helping in this area. The collector can be emptied from the driver's seat, a large, transparent fuel tank means you can easily check your level, and the external fuel cap means refuelling is easy, with no need to open the hood. LED headlights provide a lit area that's over 50 percent larger than traditional lights, for increased safety in tough conditions.

When it comes to maintenance, a service position on the cutter deck makes cleaning and servicing simple, while an hour meter helps warn you when a service is due.
