John Deere increased its front mount mower models with the new 1500 Series TerrainCut Front Mowers. The series comprises five new models—the 1550, 1570, 1575, 1580 and 1585 TerrainCuts. The Final Tier 4 compliant machines reduce operating costs with enhanced performance, comfort and versatility.

“The new 1500 Series TerrainCut offers an industry-exclusive, factory installed ComfortCab for climate-controlled comfort and improved ergonomic controls for ease of use,” said Carl Agee, John Deere product manager. “Ideal for governmental, institutional and commercial landscape operations, the 1500 Series is a productive and versatile Final Tier 4 emissions solution.”

The 1550 TerrainCut has a 24.2 hp engine, and the 1570, 1575, 1580, and 1585 TerrainCut are equipped with 37.4 hp engine. All 1500 models can be equipped with a 60- to 72-inch 7-Iron Pro side discharge deck, or 62- to 72-inch fastback rear discharge deck options. These decks come standard with flat free semi-pneumatic caster tires.

The 1550 and 1570 TerrainCut models are available with either two-wheel or four-wheel drive. The four-wheel drive automatically engages and disengages as needed to keep operators productive.

The 1580 and 1585 TerrainCut models come standard with four-wheel drive and 2-speed transmission to provide faster transport speeds and slower operating speeds when using implements.

“The 1500 Series TerrainCut front mowers offer true four-season capabilities,” Agee said. “These machines can cut all grass types in dry or wet conditions, with even clipping dispersion. They can also blow snow or clean streets and walkways with ease, providing a robust and versatile equipment option in all environments.”

The 1575 and 1585 models have the only factory-installed cab on the market and come standard with HVAC, front work lights, flashers, turn signals, windshield wiper, an upholstered, air suspension seat and tilt steering. Curved glass and single pane tempered windows provide an unobstructed view.

Available implements and accessories include snow blowers, blades, brooms, a weight transfer kit for improved attachment performance, auxiliary hydraulics and a cold weather heater block.

Each machine also has Service Advisor connectivity for quick machine diagnostics.

The 1500 series TerrainCut front mount mowers also are an eligible purchase within the GreenFleet Loyalty Rewards program.
