MOWER DECKS FOR TERRAINCUT FRONT MOWERS MATCH A WIDE VARIETY OF NEEDS
The mower is designed to provide exceptional cut quality at higher travel speeds:
The mower deck is stamped from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) steel to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside, with fewer sharp corners, for reduced material buildup.
Provides precision components and long deck life
Single piece of steel means no welds to break
Provides a smooth underside, without corners, reducing material buildup
0.75-in. (1.9-cm) solid steel bar is welded to mower deck perimeter for added strength.
The rounded corners of the stamped deck help distribute impact stress to reduce the potential of damage when the mower contacts trees, rocks, curbs, and other fixed obstacles.
A deep-deck design of 5.5-in. (14-cm) delivers excellent airflow so material can be processed quickly and efficiently.
1-in. to 6-in. (2.5-cm to 12.7-cm) cutting heights, in 0.5-in. (1.3-cm) increments, allow the operator to match all mowing conditions.
EASY-TO-OPERATE CONTROLS MAXIMIZE PRODUCTIVITY
Turn radius of 13 in. (33 cm)
Uncut circle of 28 in. (71.1 cm) with a 72-in. (183-cm) 7-Iron PRO mower deck
Deck offset and pulled rearward
Tail-follows-the-trail trimming capability with 72-in. (183-cm) side-discharge mower deck
Steered wheels (tail) stay within the path (trail) cut by the mower deck, allowing maneuverability without the rear of the machine contacting mowing obstacles
FRONT MOWER SEATS HAVE STANDARD SUSPENSION WITH ARM RESTS FOR ADDED COMFORT AND PRODUCTIVITY
Operator comfort enhances productivity. TerrainCut Front Mowers include suspension seats with green accents and an embroidered John Deere logo. The comfort-adjust mechanical spring suspension seat is base equipment, and an air-ride suspension is an optional upgrade. The operator can adjust suspension by increasing or decreasing pressure for optimum comfort. Fore-aft adjustments accommodate both tall and short operators.
Both seats are 24-in. (61-cm) tall and include back-angle, lumbar, and arm rest adjustments. The eye-catching seats are constructed from two unique vinyl textures and sewn with decorative stitching. Retractable seat belts prevent belts from becoming tangled in the seat suspension and controls.
Other comfort features include:
Standard cup holder
Noise level meets North American and European standards
SERVICEABILITY IS DESIGNED-IN TO REDUCE MAINTENANCE COST AND INCREASE UPTIME
Engine hood includes large screened area:
Minimizes the amount of material that can get to the cooling radiators
Minimizes the need to clean the hood screens
Hood latch keeps the hood securely in place, providing an optimum seal:
A single hood latch is located on top of the hood behind the seat. Designed-in service accessibility helps ensure daily maintenance is completed to keep the machine operating at peak performance.
The hood opens rearward, exposing the following:
Oil and fuel filter
Hydraulic oil cooler
The hood can be totally removed, if necessary. The seat flips forward for access to air filter, fuse bank, engine oil dipstick, and front of engine.
WELDED FRAME STRUCTURE IS MADE OF HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL
The revolutionary tubular, high-strength welded steel frame provides durability and allows major components to be located lower in the machine:
The design results in a lower center of gravity for better stability and traction on hillsides and slopes.
Rollover protective structures (ROPS) are integral members of the frame.
Durability features of the frame include:
Heat-treated cast-iron axles with 1.24-in. (3.15-cm) kingpins
