John Deere Teeing Up New Range of Sustainable Turf Equipment

Crestmead, Queensland (19 April, 2024) — John Deere has made a landmark expansion into fully electric golf and sports turf equipment for the Australian and New Zealand markets with its latest product launch.

The 185 E-Cut™ and 225 E-Cut™ Electric Walk Behind Greens Mowers are the first fully electric models in John Deere's lineup of walk-behind greens mowers, which includes E-Cut Hybrid and PrecisionCut™ models.

With no fuel consumption, no engine and virtually silent operation, these new mowers are (quietly) making a big statement on courses around the globe and are soon to be seen on local greens.

The 185 E-Cut and 225 E-Cut models are powered by a 58-volt, 3.56 kWh (maximum) lithium ion battery pack which, combined with the electric reel and traction motors, keeps operating noise to a minimum.

The included 700-watt charger recharges the battery pack from flat to 100 per cent within six hours, giving enough power to mow more than 4,600 square metres of turf on a single charge.

John Deere Australia and New Zealand Production Systems Manager, Stephanie Gersekowski, said the new greens mowers would make life easier both for operators and those living near golf courses.

"Reducing noise to this extent opens up the operating window to include early morning and late evening mowing with zero disruption to surrounding areas," she said.

"With no emissions and no fuel or oil consumption, the E-Cut electric models are a more environmentally friendly choice as well.

"These new models are just the beginning of electric John Deere machines coming to the market, which will contribute to our sustainability goals by helping greenkeepers do their job with fewer emissions."

On top of the new greens mowers coming soon, John Deere recently launched its 6700A E-Cut and 7700A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers onto Australian and New Zealand courses.

By electrifying the reel circuit on these hybrid models, greenkeepers will benefit from a 90% reduction of hydraulic leak points, reduced fuel consumption and less engine noise compared to non-hybrid models.

The 6700A E-Cut is the first three-wheel stance fairway mower on the market from John Deere available with seven-inch reels and electric reel drive, enabling enhanced adjustability and reducing emissions around the course.

Ms Gersekowski said John Deere's latest range solidifies the company as a leader in providing innovative solutions to the golf and sports turf markets in Australia and New Zealand.

"Our customers are always looking for new and more sustainable options on the golf course, and this new range is just the beginning of what John Deere is doing for sustainability and productivity into the future," she said.
