Jacobsen, a Textron Inc. company, launched the all-new HR700 wide-area rotary mower featuring an industry-first 14-foot wide cutting width. The HR700 has the ability to cut up to 25% more grass than traditional 11-foot rotary mowers, and users can mow up to 13 acres an hour, according to the company.
The HR700 delivers a zero-uncut circle and easily maneuvers around obstacles. A transport width within the front deck allows the mower to go places other mowers can’t, the company stated.
Other features include new SureStrength decks constructed with high strength steel to deliver greater durability in a lighter, more sustainable design, Q AMP variable rate steering to provide optimal response to operator input for easier mowing around obstacles, and an AdaptiCut system that automatically adjusts mow speed to ensure consistent cut performance.
Jacobsen engineers also designed in several features that make the HR700 very easy to maintain and operate. Individual hydraulic deck motors with self-lubricating integral bearings deliver cutting power to each blade and require no maintenance. The new mower also features an iso-mounted operator platform, full suspension seat, and cruise control.
