6500A PRECISIONCUT FAIRWAY MOWERS TRUSTED BY THE BEST

The PrecisionCut A Model Fairway Mowers offer several features that separate it from the competition. Like the eHydro hydrostatic pump and large capacity motors for serious hill-climbing capabilities. The GRIP All-Wheel Drive Traction System provides superior traction by reducing wheel slip. And exclusive LoadMatch lets you cut through wet, lush grass evenly by slowing down the traction speed.

Getting on or off these mowers is no problem, thanks to easy entry and exit points. And there are plenty of operator comfort features, like foot-operated tilt steering and a deluxe suspension seat with multiple adjustments for all-day productivity.

FEATURES
24.7 hp FT4 compliant Liquid-Cooled Diesel Engine
22 QA5 Cutting Units for a 100 total Width of Cut
3-wheel, smooth tire configuration with standard GRIP All-Wheel Drive
Passcode-protected TechControl display

18.4-kW (24.7-hp) FINAL TIER 4 (FT4) DIESEL ENGINE OFFERS PLENTY OF POWER FOR MOWING
Power starts with the engine, and the 6080A, 6500A, and 6700A PrecisionCut and 6080A and 6500A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers feature a 3-cylinder, 18.4-kW (24.7-hp ) diesel engine that has a strong reputation for power and performance. The engine is FT44 compliant, without the use of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) or diesel particulate filter (DPF) to lower up-front acquisition costs. The engine provides power for undulating conditions, while also being able to power fairway tender conditioners and rear roller power brushes while running any reel combination.

The air-intake system is also designed to pull clean air from the front of the machine behind the operator's seat, rather than dirty air from the rear of the machine. This improves engine performance and efficiency during those hot, dusty times of the 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.

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.

LOADMATCH ELECTRONIC SETTING COMPENSATES SPEED OF MACHINE TO KEEP POWER TO THE CUTTING UNITS TO MAINTAIN CUT QUALITY
LoadMatch is an electronic setting through the TechControl display that allows managers more control of the machine and how it is operated when out on the course. Most operators will mow as fast as the mow setting will allow, keeping their traction pedal all the way down. However, in some conditions this can lead to poor cut quality.

One example is getting behind in mowing due to weather conditions. The grass is long and lush and to properly cut that amount of grass at one time, the operator should slow the traction speed. This allows the cutting units to maintain proper turning speed, process the grass, and properly cut in one pass. Not slowing down causes missed grass and an uneven appearance. This affects the after-cut appearance and also reduces productivity by having to mow a second time to properly cut the lush grass.

The LoadMatch feature compensates the traction speed of machine to keep power to the cutting units. In the long, lush conditions described above with LoadMatch engaged, the operator would still have the traction pedal all the way down, but the machine would sense the load and slow the traction speed to properly cut the mowing pass. Once the load is reduced, the machine will return to the normal mow speed. LoadMatch puts the manager in control of cut quality instead of the operator.

EHYDRO HYDROSTATIC PUMP FOR PREMIUM EASE OF USE
The 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 it is electronic.

In total, approximately 94 parts have been eliminated from the traction drive system along with four adjustments compared to prior models. The design reduced the complexity of the drive system, which means no more linkages to adjust or repair, decreased routine maintenance, and more reliable day-in/day-out operation. The operator will like the eHydro pump, too. The pedal effort has been reduced, thus reducing foot fatigue during many hours of mowing.

GRIP ALL-WHEEL DRIVE TRACTION SYSTEM MOVES FLOW FROM WHEELS THAT SLIP TO THOSE THAT GRIP
The standard GRIP all-wheel drive traction 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. This helps provide maximum traction in undulating conditions.

The GRIP all-wheel drive traction system is standard equipment with the 6080A, 6500A, and 6700A PrecisionCut and 6080A and 6500A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers and is also engaged at all times, whether in mow or in transport. A check valve in the rear motor puts the machine in two-wheel drive (2WD) in reverse to minimize any potential scuffing.

DOUBLE-ACTING, SINGLE-ROD HYDRAULIC STEERING CYLINDER FOR LINES AS STRAIGHT AS A GREENS MOWER
For superintendents who want stripes as straight as they are on the greens, the A-model PrecisionCut Mowers and E-Cut Hybrid Mowers do exactly that. Utilizing the same style steering cylinder as on the 2550 PrecisionCut and 2550 E-Cut Hybrid Riding Greens Mowers, the PrecisionCut and E-Cut Hybrid Mowers can mow the straightest lines of any mower in the industry today.

Traditional hydraulic cylinders have a rod on only one side of the cylinder. The cylinder on the A-models has one rod that goes through both sides of the cylinder. This equalizes volume and pressure on both sides of the cylinder packing, helping the operator make perfectly straight lines with little effort. This system also equalizes the steering effort, meaning easy turns whether turning to the right or to the left.

EASILY ACCESSIBLE DAILY SERVICE POINTS MEAN LESS MAINTENANCE TIME AND MORE TIME WORKING
Easier daily maintenance points are designed into the machine to assist operators with complete daily maintenance and to keep the machine running at peak performance, saving valuable time and money.

For ease of service, all daily engine checks are easily accessible by raising the hood. These service points include an engine-oil level check, a coolant level check, hydraulic fluid level, and an air-restriction indicator. The A-model PrecisionCut Mowers, E-Cut Hybrid Mowers, and TerrainCut Mowers feature a radiator screen that is easily removed without tools and a tilt-out oil cooler for easy cleaning.

CUTTING UNITS ARE STABLE AND FOLD INSIDE THE FRONT TIRES FOR EASY TRANSPORTING
The 6500A, 6700A, 7500A, 7700A, and 8700A PrecisionCut and 6500A and 7500A E-Cut Hybrid Fairway Mowers all have cutting units that contact up stops for transport. These up stops are rubber and limit cutting units from swinging during transport. The lift system also folds the two wing units inside the tires to limit possibility of damage to the wing units when transporting through and around objects on the course.
