John Deere Expands Line-Up Of Commercial Front Mowers

1500 Series TerrainCut™ offers comfort and versatility for landscaping and governmental operations

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."
