Power is in ample supply, thanks to a 23.1 kW (31- hp) Yanmar® diesel engine. This engine provides more displacement and peak torque than most competitive mowers, which allows you to maximise hectares mowed per hour. Shaft-driven mower decks are available in 152 cm (60-in.) or 183 cm (72-in.) 7-Iron™ II side-discharge decks or a 152 cm (60-in.) rear discharge deck.

John Deere 997R

Whether mowing with a side-discharge deck, a rear-discharge deck, or with a mulching deck, the 997 excels in the toughest mowing conditions. In short, the heavy-duty, large-capacity 997 gives you front-mower like power in a zero-turn mower while providing the productivity and dependability you value.

Family Owned and Run – Our Business Strength

Beacon Equipment is proud to be a West Australian family owned and run business. Our story began in 1992 when Michael and Jan Beacon bought Mowfix Mower and Chainsaw Centre in Canning Vale. Our passion has always been outdoor equipment from stocking the latest chainsaws to ride-on mowers, generators, pressure cleaners and of course lawn mowers in Perth. Over the following 17 years after purchasing the outdoor power equipment company, the expert Mowfix team earned prestigious recognition of being a nationally recognized John Deere and Stihl dealer of the year in Perth. We pride ourselves on our extensive range of products we carry, backed by our fully qualified sales and service team. In 2011 we changed our name to Beacon Equipment as you know us today. We felt this name change would better encompass who we are as a company as our range of products has grown from your everyday lawn and backyard equipment to commercial and industrial power equipment. In 2012 we established the Perth Stihl Shop in Cockburn Central to increase our range as a Stihl specialist in Western Australia & make our services and products more accessible and convenient to our customers.
