In addition to added 35- and 40-HP configurations – which allows for greater variety of performance-matched implements – the new LX3520 and LX4020 models were built with the operator in mind, from an updated cabin area to new grips and easier-to-maneuver controls. The LX20s feature a redesigned transmission aimed at significantly reducing HST noise for the operator, while an auto throttle helps the tractor to drive with ease. The LX20 Series features a wider front axle as well as a performance matched front loader that further improves their ease of operation and maneuverability. Additionally, the LX20 Series comes with a dual engine memory switch, allowing the operator to preset their preferred RPMS and have the engine match that speed at the push of a button. Finally, there are new mower decks available for both models, with integrated wash port attachments to make cleaning under the deck easier.
