John Deere’s 1500 Series TerrainCut Front Mowers are final Tier 4-compliant machines and consist of five models – the 1550, 1570, 1575, 1580, and 1585.
The 1550 TerrainCut boasts a 24.2-hp engine, and the 1570, 1575, 1580, and 1585 TerrainCut are equipped with 37.4-hp engines. All 1500 TerrainCut models can be equipped with a 60-inch/72-inch 7-Iron PRO side discharge deck, or 62-inch/72-inch FASTBACK rear discharge deck options. These decks come standard with flat free semi-pneumatic caster tires that increase uptime, according to the company.
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.
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.
