For the first time in Australia 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,
green-keepers 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 inch) side- and rear-discharge
- 1550 — 17.8 kW (24.2hp) with four-wheel drive, diesel engine;
- 1570 — 22.7 kW (30.9hp) with four-wheel drive, diesel engine;
- 1575 — 22.7 kW (30.9hp) with four-wheel drive, ComfortCab, diesel engine;
- 1580 — 28.1 kW (38.2hp) with four-wheel drive, two-speed transmission, diesel engine; and
- 1585 — 28.1 kW (38.2hp) with four-wheel drive, two-speed transmission, ComfortCab, diesel engine.
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 24km/h. A new 25 to 152mm (1 to 6 inch) 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.
