7500A E-CUT HYBRID FAIRWAY MOWERS THE NEXT LEVEL OF TECHNOLOGY
The John Deere E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers take high-performance hybrid technology to the next level. The E-Cut Hybrid technology uses a 48-V alternator to power the cutting units via electric motors, eliminating all hydraulic leak points from the reel circuit, where 90 percent of all hydraulic leaks occur.
In addition to the elimination of leak points, the E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers can be set through the TechControl display to automatically operate at a reduced throttle of 2300 rpm for noise reduction, as well as fuel savings up to 30 percent as compared to hydraulic units.
Eliminating the possibility of a hydraulic leak in the reel circuit is just the beginning. E-Cut Hybrid technology delivers a cut that can be generated only by electricity. The reel speed always stays rock steady for a consistently ideal frequency of clip. So your course always looks pleasing to the eye and plays evenly as well.
No one else in the golf course industry can match our experience and expertise with hybrid mowers. From fairway mowers to riding and walking greens mowers, only John Deere can give you the trust and confidence that comes with this remarkable technology. Your fairways and greens are the highlights of your course. Give them the technology they deserve to look their very best, every day, every season, every year.

THREE-WHEEL STANCE AND SMOOTH TIRES FOR EXCELLENT MANEUVERABILITY AND AFTER-CUT APPEARANCE
The 6080A, 6500A, and 6700A PrecisionCut and 6080A, 6500A, and 8000A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers help to make fairways that look like greens a reality.
An innovative, smooth tire design minimizes compaction and tire marking, especially in turns, giving a look similar to that from a riding greens mower. The GRIP all-wheel drive traction system works in combination with the smooth tire design to give a greens-quality appearance without sacrificing traction. These machines also excel at weight distribution, ensuring each tire sees an equal amount of weight over a large tire surface area for a ground pressure that is friendly to the surface of the turf.
This three-wheel stance is common with riding greens mowers in the market today. This provides an after-cut appearance that is so good it looks like the fairways were mowed by a greens mower. The three-wheel stance also excels in maneuverability, allowing for tight turning at the end of passes for increased productivity.
ELECTRIC REEL DRIVE SYSTEM ELIMINATES ALL POTENTIAL LEAK POINTS IN THE REEL CIRCUIT
Ninety percent of all hydraulic leaks occur in the reel hydraulic circuit, mainly due to the necessity of having flexible hoses extending from the front of the machine for the front reels. These hoses see a lot of flexing during the mowing day as cutting units are raised and lowered. Cutting units also steer and float to follow undulations, increasing fatigue for the reel motor hoses.
The 6080A, 6500A, 7500A, and 8000A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers have eliminated all reel circuit leak points by removing all hydraulics from the cutting unit drive circuit.
REDUCED SOUND LEVELS AND FUEL CONSUMPTION AT 2300 RPM
The E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers are unique in that electrical power is used to minimize hydraulic leak opportunities in the reel circuit, but an engine is utilized to ensure optimal performance throughout the day. This presents an opportunity to further enhance machine performance through reduced sound levels and improved fuel savings, by running the machine at less-than-full throttle. When running the E-Cut Hybrid machines at the recommended reduced setting it does not sacrifice cut quality as the reel speed is still maintained at approximately 2200 rpm.
This reduced throttle setting is set quickly and easily using the TechControl display. Simply use the password-protected mower set-up screen Engine Mow Speed to set maximum engine speed while in mow. Once set, the engine speed automatically uses this rpm when the machine is mowing. This allows complete control of sound levels and fuel savings.
The 7500A and 8000A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers can be effectively run in mow at an engine rpm reduced to 2300 rpm. At this operating rpm, operators will experience noise reductions when compared to running the machines at full throttle. In addition to the reduced sound levels, the operation at this engine rpm will reduce fuel usage due to slower engine rpm. Comparisons have shown that, depending on conditions and usage, fuel savings can be as high as 30 percent when running the machine at 2300 rpm as opposed to running at full throttle required by traditional hydraulic machines.
BRUSHLESS ELECTRIC REEL MOTORS FOR COMPACT DESIGN AND OPTIMAL EFFICIENCY
The electric reel motors on the 6080A, 6500A, 7500A, and 8000A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers are brushless, allowing them to be compact in size, roughly equal to that of today's hydraulic reel motors. The brushless motors are very efficient, leading to years of optimal performance with very minimal maintenance, and sealed for protection from the elements. The motors are bidirectional and variable speed, meaning they can spin forward or reverse and at a range of rotational speeds. The motors spin forward for mowing operations and backward for backlapping operations.
A poly-chain belt connects the motor shaft to the reel and rotates the reel when the cutting units are engaged. The internal components of the motor are sealed for long life, durability, and protection from the elements. Cutting units are easily removed from the cutting unit motors by loosening the two bolts securing the motor to the cutting unit, turning the motor approximately a quarter turn, and pulling the motor from the cutting unit. This can be done in a matter of seconds. A tether prevents damage to the wiring harness when the motor is removed.
48-V, 180-AMP ALTERNATOR POWERS REEL DRIVE MOTORS, REQUIRING NO ADDITIONAL BATTERIES ON UNIT
The reel circuit is powered by a 48-V, 180-amp alternator belt-driven by the engine. The alternator supplies constant power to the reel circuit and only generates 48 V when the mow system is engaged.
Due to this design, no additional batteries are required to drive the reel motors on the 6080A, 6500A, 7500A, and 8000A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers. With traditional electrical mowing systems, the frequency of clip would change as the batteries drained while mowing. A battery pack begins to lose its power immediately when used, but not on the E-Cut Hybrids. Since they still use an engine to drive an alternator, the frequency of clip at the start of the day and at the end of the day is exactly the same, yielding unparalleled quality of cut from start to finish.
Plus, the machine doesn't have to be plugged in to charge the batteries once the day's mowing is done. The only limitation on run time with the E-Cut Hybrids is making sure the operator starts the day with a full fuel tank, just like with any other gas- or diesel-powered machine on the market today. The alternator only supplies power to the reel circuit. The remainder of the circuits are powered by a 12-V battery.
TECHCONTROL DISPLAY MAXIMIZES PERFORMANCE AND UPTIME BY ALLOWING MORE CONTROL IN OPERATION AND DIAGNOSTICS
Passcode-protected TechControl display enables quickly setting or changing mowing speed, turning speed, or transport speed to limit variations in performance by different operators.
Quickly adjust the mow or transport speed to make sure mow speed is what is needed for the changing conditions. The setting can be adjusted precisely using a speedometer app on a smartphone or global positioning system (GPS) device.
Use the TechControl to slow the machine during turns while mowing and protect against turf scuffing and aggressive turning operators. The turn speed control engages when in mow and the cutting units are lifted for turns. Once the turn is made and the cutting units are lowered, the machine speed returns to the set mow speed. The turn speed is a percentage of mow speed. When set to 100 percent, turn speed control is off or allows 100 percent of the mow speed in turns. Turn speed setting of 50 percent allows only 50 percent of the set mow speed to be reached during turns.
EHYDRO HYDROSTATIC PUMP AND LARGE-CAPACITY WHEEL MOTORS FOR SERIOUS HILL-CLIMBING CAPABILITIES
The eHydro traction pump and wheel motors in the new A-model take performance, traction, and operation to the next level. The new system was designed to take on the most challenging course conditions. The traction drive pump flow increased 35 percent and the wheel motors increase 17 percent in displacement over prior models. These increases to the traction system make the A-models ideal for undulating terrain providing superior performance and traction out on the course.
The new traction system in the A-models is driven by a servo-controlled hydrostatic pump. The control of the pump is no longer mechanical linkages, but instead is electronic. Approximately 110 parts have been eliminated from the traction drive system compared to prior models. The new design also eliminated two adjustments. Reducing the complexity of the drive system means no more linkages to adjust or repair, decreased routine maintenance, and providing reliable day-in/day-out operation.
AUTOPEDAL FEATURE LOWERS SOUND LEVELS AND FUEL CONSUMPTION DURING TRANSPORT
The AutoPedal feature controls engine rpm and transport speed of the machine through the eHydro foot pedal controls. AutoPedal is similar to an automobile gas pedal operation; the more the forward pedal is pressed, the faster the machine moves and the higher the engine rpm; pressing the pedal less, the slower the machine moves and the lower the engine rpm.
On conventional machines, the engine rpm is controlled by the operator by means of a manual or electric/manual throttle. Operators are trained to always operate the engine at wide-open throttle. Running at wide open throttle means running the engine at its fastest speed, which increases the sound levels and fuel usage.
The AutoPedal system allows the engine to only run as fast as needed, meaning that as operators transport around the course, the engine speed is only as fast as needed for the transport speed. If the operator approaches play and stops, the engine rpm goes to idle. This makes transporting quieter and since the engine does not run full speed all the time, it reduces fuel consumption. Once the operator reaches the mowing site, engages the mow switch on the CommandARM controls, the engine rpm automatically increases to full throttle for mowing.
GRIP ALL-WHEEL DRIVE TRACTION SYSTEM MOVES FLOW FROM WHEELS THAT SLIP TO THOSE THAT GRIP
Hill-climbing power is essential with any golf course and this is one area where the 8000A E-Cut Hybrid truly excels. A powerful turbocharged diesel engine supplies power to the system. Combine that with a new larger eHydro and wheel motors the GRIP all-wheel drive traction system and the 8000A E-Cut Hybrid is one powerful hill-climbing machine .
The new traction drive includes an eHydro hydrostatic pump with 35 percent more flow and 17 percent more wheel torque than previous models to deliver the hill climbing performance expected with a fairway mower. The GRIP system transfers hydraulic flow from wheels that slip to wheels that grip. For example, if the right front wheel starts to slip, hydraulic flow goes to the left front and rear tires to maintain traction power.
The GRIP all-wheel drive traction system is standard equipment with the 8000A E-Cut Hybrid and it is also engaged at all times, in mow or in transport.
DOUBLE-ACTING, DUAL-ROD HYDRAULIC STEERING CYLINDER MAKES LINES AS STRAIGHT AS ON GREENS, NOW ON FAIRWAYS
Ever wanted to mow fairways with the same quality straight lines mowed on greens? The double-acting, dual-rod hydraulic steering cylinder on the 8000A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mower does exactly that.
Using the same technology as incorporated on other PrecisionCut, E-Cut Hybrid, and TerrainCut Mowers, the 8000A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mower produces high-quality straight lines through its unique steering system.
A rod on each side of the cylinder equalizes volume and pressure on each side of the cylinder, meaning equal steering effort from side to side. Once the cylinder is centered, it tracks as straight as an arrow. That means fairways and other areas can be mowed as straight as an arrow.
MTSPIRAL AND MTGROOVED ROLLER OPTIONS FOR MOST ANY TURF CONDITION
The MTSpiral roller and the MTGrooved roller options are available for Quick-Adjust 5 (QA5) cutting units to minimize roller overlap marks. The MTSpiral roller and the MTGrooved roller options take the patented 50.8-mm (2-in.) machine spiral roller to a whole new level. These designs reduce the number of times the grass is rolled in the overlap area of the cutting units. With these unique designs, the material in the overlap of the roller is machined down to a smaller diameter, allowing the ends of the rear cutting unit rollers to roll through the open space of the front cutting unit rollers.
CUTTING UNITS ARE STABLE FOR EASY TRANSPORTING
The 6080A PrecisionCut and 6080A and 8000A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers have cutting units that contact up stops for transport. These up stops are rubber and limit cutting units from swinging during transport to protect the cutting units when transporting down cart paths or bumpy terrain.
