About DB Mower

When our dad (Don) wanted something to help him get on and off his Zero-Turn lawn mower, we developed the DONBAR. Dad used the DONBAR and we noticed it was a good idea that works for everyone. The DONBAR is now being offered to others as an easy way to get on and off Zero-Turn lawn mowers.

 

DONBAR ~ MOUNT & DISMOUNT SUPPORT

Balance and Stability
The DONBAR is something to hold onto for better balance when climbing on and off of a Zero-Turn lawn mower. The DONBAR works just
like a handrail. After sitting on the Zero-Turn mower for long periods of cutting and riding, having two feet on the foot plate and one hand on the DONBAR makes it easier to standup. This is three points of contact, and it happens when you’re getting up from the Zero-Turn mower with a DONBAR. As you’re getting on a Zero-Turn mower, you’re balancing one foot. This is one point of contact. Again, the DONBAR is something to hold onto for better balance when getting on the Zero-Turn mower. It just makes good sense that two points of contact are better for balance and stability than one point of contact.
 

Easy Install
The DONBAR is supported by a post mounted directly to the foot plate of the Zero-Turn mower. Installing the DONBAR is simple using the existing deck holes, along with the provided bolts, nuts, and washers. The four lock nuts that resist loosening under vibrations and torque.
Easy Standup
It’s helpful to have something sturdy to hold onto while we straighten our legs for standing on the foot plate. When standing up from the chair on the Zero-Turn mower, it’s good to be able to hold onto a steady object. When we get off the chair on the Zero-Turn, we move to the edge of the chair and place our feet in front of us, firmly and flat on the foot plate. That is when we grab the DONBAR for an easier and more secure shift from a sitting position to a standing position.

Easy On
With the additional stability of the DONBAR, it is easier to climb the height of the single step onto the Zero-Turn lawn mower. The DONBAR helps with climbing stability when you shift your weight from two legs onto one leg. The DONBAR is designed to be grasped by one hand before lifting one foot off the ground and onto the foot plate of the Zero-Turn mower and then lifting the other foot onto the Zero-Turn footplate.

Easy Off

Working similar to a handrail, the DONBAR acts as a balancing mechanism while stepping down from the Zero-Turn foot plate and on to the ground.

DONBARs are available for:

eXmark
  • o Lazer
  • o Pioneer
Toro
  • o TimeCutter
  • o Z Master
For other mowers, contact your dealer.
 

Installation Instructions ~

The DONBAR must be anchored securely to Zero-Turn mower foot plate. The DONBAR is mounted with four bolts passing through the DONBAR mounting bracket and then passing through four existing holes in the Zero-Turn mower foot plate. The DONBAR is secured with a locking nut on each of the four bolts.

1. Start by locating and marking four volcano through holes in Zero-Turn mower foot plate.
    a. The four holes will have the same on-center hole pattern as the DONBAR.
    b. You can measure to locate the correct four holes.

2. Place a 5/16th flat washer on each of the four 5/16th bolts.

3. Place the four 5/16th bolts with the flat washers through the mounting holes in the DONBAR base plate.

4. Lower the DONBAR base plate onto the Zero-Turn foot plate with the four 5/16th bolt passing through matching holes in the foot plate.

5. Secure each of the 5/16th bolt with a washer and a locking nut.

6. Torque each locking nut to a specification of 80 inch pounds.
