CARY, North Carolina (July 1, 2014) – John Deere is increasing its front mount mower models with the new 1500 Series TerrainCut™ Front Mowers. The series adds five new models – the 1550, 1570, 1575, 1580, and 1585 TerrainCut to the existing front mower line-up. The Final Tier 4 compliant machines increase uptime and reduce operating costs with enhanced performance, comfort, and versatility.
“The new 1500 Series TerrainCut offers an industry-exclusive, factory installed ComfortCab for climate-controlled comfort and improved ergonomic controls for ease of use,” said Carl Agee, John Deere product manager. “Ideal for governmental, institutional, and commercial landscape operations, the 1500 Series is a productive and versatile Final Tier 4 emissions solution.”
The 1550 TerrainCut boasts a 24.2 hp engine, and the 1570, 1575, 1580, and 1585 TerrainCut are equipped with 37.4 hp engine. All 1500 TerrainCut models can be equipped with a 60″ / 72″ 7-Iron™ PRO side discharge deck, or 62″ / 72″ FASTBACK rear discharge deck options. These decks come standard with flat free semi-pneumatic caster tires that increase uptime to finish the job.
The 1550 and 1570 TerrainCut models are available with either two-wheel or four-wheel drive. The on-demand four-wheel drive automatically engages and disengages as needed to keep operators productive.
The 1580 and 1585 TerrainCut models come standard with four-wheel drive and 2-speed transmission to provide faster transport speeds and slower operating speeds when using implements.
“The 1500 Series TerrainCut Front Mowers offer true four-season capabilities,” continued Agee. “These machines can cut all grass types in dry or wet conditions, with even clipping dispersion. They can also blow snow, or clean streets and walkways with ease, providing a robust and versatile equipment option in all environments.”
The 1575 and 1585 models have the only factory-installed cab on the market and come standard with HVAC, front work lights, flashers, turn signals, windshield wiper, an upholstered, air suspension seat, and tilt steering. Curved glass and single pane tempered windows provide an unobstructed view no matter what the task.
Available implements and accessories include snow blowers, blades, brooms, a weight transfer kit for improved attachment performance, auxiliary hydraulics, and a cold weather heater block.
Each machine also has Service ADVISOR™ connectivity for quick machine diagnostics.
The 1500 series TerrainCut front mount mowers are an eligible purchase within the GreenFleet™ Loyalty Rewards program. The industry-exclusive loyalty program from John Deere is designed to help customers manage their equipment more easily and cost-effectively.
