Jacobsen released the HR700 wide-area rotary mower. Featuring a 14-foot cutting width, the HR700 can cut up to 25 percent more grass than traditional 11-foot rotary mowers, the company said.

“The HR700 is distinctly different than any other wide-area rotary on the market because of its unique size,” said Ben Bruce, product manager for Jacobsen. “It combines the maneuverability and agility of a smaller mower with a massively productive 14-foot cutting width, allowing turf managers of sports fields, parks and green spaces, golf courses, schools, airports and commercial grounds to mow up to 13 acres an hour.”

According to Jacobsen, new SureStrength decks, constructed with high-strength, high-performance steel, deliver greater durability in a lighter, more sustainable design, and a new AdaptiCut system automatically adjusts mow speed to ensure consistent cut performance.

The new mower also features an iso-mounted operator platform, full-suspension seat and cruise control for operator comfort and productivity.

The HR700 is the first of a series of new rotary mowers from Jacobsen, all built on a common platform.

“When fully launched, the new HR series platform will consist of 11, 14 and 16-foot width of cut variations that will serve a wide range of applications and productivity requirements,” Bruce said. “By utilizing a high percentage of common components and functionality, customers will benefit from being able to go from one model to the next for ease of operation and routine maintenance practices.”
