John Deere 1575 TerrainCut™ Front Mower with Cab
John Deere 1580 TerrainCut™ Front Mower with ROPS
CRESTMEAD, Queensland (04 September 2014) – For the first time in Australia and New Zealand the new 1500 Series TerrainCut
commercial front mower range is open for ordering. This range features a fully integrated, factory-installed cab that makes this a true four-season machine.
Equipped with the powerful, high-torque, three-cylinder diesel engines, four-wheel drive and high-capacity rotary mower decks, the 1500 Series can mow thick grass at high speeds and still produce a quality cut.
Featuring a compact design for manoeuvrability and easy transport, the range has been designed to suit the various needs of landscapers, contractors, groundsmen, greenkeepers and local councils. The new model year 2015 line-up consists of five TerrainCut™ models, with a choice of 152, 157 and 183 cm (60, 62 and 72-in.) side- and rear-discharge decks:
A robust hydrostatic transmission allows the mowers to perform well over rough terrain and in tough grass conditions. The two-speed transmission on the 1580 and 1585 models also allows faster working speeds and a transport speed of up to 24 km/h. A new 25 to 152 m (1 to 6-in.) height of cut adjustment improves cut quality and performance by stabilising the deck's rake angle.
Key user-friendly features include cruise control, a comfortable seat, Twin Touch™ pedals for the transmission and an electro-hydraulic deck drive clutch, while an air ride seat is available as an option. In addition, the 1575 and 1585 are equipped with a new, comfort cab that provides 360-degree visibility. The cab features an air conditioning and heating system for comfortable year round use and the air ride seat is standard on these models.
The 1585 model also comes with an increased axle load capacity to hold the high-specification cab. The mower's front PTO is used to supply power to the mower deck which makes installation and removal easier and also reduces heat in the hydraulic drive system.
When the grass stops growing, the TerrainCut 1500 Series keeps on going with a range of additional attachments including blades. Plus new ergonomic controls and seat options keep operators comfortable all day long.
