John Deere updates 1600 Turbo Series III Wide-Area mowers

John DeereJohn Deere updated the 1600 Turbo Series III Wide-Area mowers, which are ideal for tackling large areas and hills, according to the company.

Updates to the mowers include the addition of a Final Tier 4 (FT4)-compliant, liquid-cooled, four-cylinder engine. The updated engine boosts the machine’s power to PS 60 hp (44 kw) at 3000 rpm.

“Customers desire a machine that combines power and comfort, helping them be more productive and profitable on the job,” said Ruben Peña, product manager, John Deere. “The updated 1600 Series III Wide-Area mowers offer just that—the power operators need with the fuel economy cost benefits of a FT4 engine. Additionally, while updating our wide-area mower offering, we strived to improve comfort and serviceability to provide the ultimate mowing machine.”

The machine’s new rear bumper is designed to easily swing out of the away to allow the hood to be opened for service without using tools. The bumper is removed from the hood to better protect it, and the cooling package seals from damage. Installed with quick-release latches, the bumper is securely in place when in the operating position. Also, the rear frame has been strengthened to support the new bumper.

Additionally, the new standard air-ride seat maximizes comfort, and the high seatback features softer, body-contoured seat cushions, standard armrests and multiple color-coded controls for quick seat adjustment. Seat suspension reliability has also been improved, John Deere said.

According to John Deere, the mowers also include the following features from previous models:

  • One 62-inch center deck and two 42-inch wing decks, all of which are rear discharged;
  • On-demand or full-time four-wheel drive;
  • Compatibility with Service Advisor; and
  • Warning indicator lights, gauges and diagnostic information.
