LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo (July, 2021) – Billy Goat®, a brand of Briggs & Stratton, is pleased to expand its sod cutter offering with a 24” wide SC240HG Hydro-Drive Sod Cutter.  

Built upon the most rugged foundation in the industry, the unit features a heavy-duty drive and cut system with a laser clad cutting blade for 3x blade life. The new 24-inch unit offers contractors a larger, more productive option. From irrigation, landscape, hardscape, sports field, golf or sod farm applications, the SC240HG will take the chore out of large tear out and removal projects. 

Compared to multiple settings on other machines, Billy Goat sod cutters feature the easiest to use Set and Forget™ blade depth adjustment where operators can simply adjust depth to 2.5 inches with a single lever from the operator station. The unit comes standard with a rear caster wheel for curved cuts that locks when straight cutting, and knobby tires for softer touch, shallow cut bent grass applications. Operators will appreciate the handle isolation mounts that absorb vibration and offer smooth, fatigue-free operation. 

Billy Goat sod cutters have a variable speed hydrostatic drive that not only allows for tailoring cutting speed to ground conditions, but also allows the unit to be transported at 3.5 mph. The unit includes intuitive Billy Goat Controls™ which are common to all hydro-drive machines offered, and are under-mounted with reverse at the operator’s fingertips.  

The SC240HG is powered by a 6.5 gross HP* Honda engine. 

For more than 50 years, Billy Goat branded property clean-up products has been manufactured with a reputation for innovation, productivity and quality. The complete line of seasonal products offers solutions for residential, commercial and municipal customers serving rental, contractor and retail markets.
