Standard Features

7-Gauge Welded Steel Decks
 The deck shells are constructed from high-strength 7-gauge welded steel, 33% thicker and 75% stronger than ordinary 10 gauge commercial steel used in 7/10 decks.  
Folding Rollover Protection System (ROPS)
 A Rollover Protection System (ROPS), complete with seat belt, comes standard for operator protection in the case of accidental rollovers and tipovers. In situations where sufficient vertical clearance is not available, such as loading on an enclosed trailer, the ROPS can be temporarily unlocked and folded down.  
Adjustable Baffle
 The patent-pending adjustable baffle design on the 72 in. (183 cm) Side Discharge and 60 in. (152 cm) Side Discharge allows operator to quickly fine tune cutting performance to meet changing turf conditions. The adjustable front baffle position is easily moved in a matter of seconds without any tools.  
Industry's Toughest Spindle Assembly
 The cast iron spindle housings feature a massive 9 inch (22.9 cm) diameter base and eight-bolt mounting pattern that spread impact loads across a broader area of the robust deck shell. Combine that with the high-efficiency, tapered roller bearings that offer greater durability than spindles that use ball bearings. The result is greater stability and strength, providing longer deck and spindle life.  
Large Fuel Tank Capacity
 The large 11.3 gal. (42.8 l) fuel tank provides capacity for all-day mowing.  
 Tight wheel base, power steering, and individual steering brakes allow for expert handling and increased productivity.  
Operator Comfort
 The new electric-clutch deck engagement is smoother than the manual systems and the new air ride seat suspension glides over the bumps.  
Rubber Discharge Deflector
 The discharge deflector on the 72 in. (183 cm) side discharge and 60 in. (152 cm) side discharge decks is constructed of durable 5/16 in. (8 mm) thick rubber and allows for close trimming without damaging chute or landscape structures. Patent-pending design provides exceptional dispersion.  
Steel Blades
 The high-strength one-quarter inch (6 mm) thick heat-treated alloy steel blades resist flexing and abrasive wear. The result is a crisp cut time after time.  
Superior Traction
 An innovative bi-directional over running clutch senses traction needs. Extra-large tread tires and counterbalance system further enhance traction and stability.  
Tapered Roller Bearings
 High-efficiency, tapered roller bearings offer greater durability than spindles that use ball bearings.  


 Wide Deck Selection
 The Groundsmaster® 3280-D has a choice of seven decks to match your mowing needs, including: 72 in. (183 cm) rear discharge, 72 in. (183 cm) side discharge, Guardian 72 in. (183 cm) Recycler, 62 in. (158 cm) rear discharge, Guardian 62 in. (158 cm) recycler, 60 in. (152 cm) side discharge and 52 in. (132 cm) side discharge.
