JOHN DEERE 260 SL PRECISIONCUT GREENS MOWER

Some of the lightest mowers in their class, the SL PrecisionCut walk greens mowers allow effortless turning, better engagement with the turf for a consistent cut, and straighter tracking. Well-engineered cutting unit geometry provides the cleanest cut with minimal impact to the grass plant.

SPEED LINK HEIGHT-OF-CUT SYSTEM ADJUSTS BOTH SIDES OF THE ROLLER AT THE SAME TIME
The ultimate in quick and accurate height-of-cut adjustments: The Speed Link height-of-cut adjustment system ties both sides of the front roller together, allowing technicians to make height-of-cut adjustments simply by adjusting one end of the roller.

How does this innovative system accomplish a one-point height-of-cut adjustment? It all starts with the worm gear drives in the front-roller castings. The worm gear system rotates via hex bolts on the side of the rear-roller castings, adjusting the roller up and down. Simply turn the gears by turning the hex adjuster on the side of the casting. Each full turn represents an adjustment of 0.001 in. (0.0254 mm). A diagram on the side of the casting tells which direction to turn the hex bolts to raise or lower the cutting height.

But that's not all. The true secret to the system is the connecting rod that ties the worm gear systems for the roller tower together. With the connecting rod in place, turning the height-of-cut adjuster on one side automatically turns the other side by the exact same amount. This allows for adjusting the height of cut from one end of the roller, making adjustments not only quick, but with stunning precision.

The Speed Link connecting rod is also spring loaded, so it can be easily removed should both towers need to be adjusted independently. Once the roller is paralleled to the front roller when the cutting unit is initially set up, the Speed Link system takes over and moves each side of the roller by the same amount for a quick one-point height-of-cut adjustment. The preferred way to adjust the cutting unit is with a variable-speed electric or air drill with a 16-mm socket attached. A drill makes the adjustment even easier by rotating the tower quickly, making height-of-cut changes a breeze. And the connecting rod makes ensures the other side turns just as fast and just as accurately.
