John Deere Introduces Three New Triplex Mowers at GIS
Triplex family now includes a complete range of models for your mowing fleet
Crestmead, Queensland (20 February, 2020) — John Deere unveiled three new triplex mowers at the 2020 Golf Industry Show in Orlando, USA: the 2400 PrecisionCut™, 2550 PrecisionCut and the 2550 E-Cut™ Hybrid models. With the addition of the new models, John Deere will now offer a complete range of seven triplex mowers, supplying golf courses with a variety of solutions that can be combined to provide the best cut quality and appearance for the golf course. The new models feature offset cutting units, right hand CommandARM™-mounted controls, and easy serviceability.
"We know every customer has a unique set of needs and, with that in mind, we have created a full line of triplex mowers so we can support every course," said Brad Aldridge, product manager, John Deere Golf. "The additions of the 2400 and 2550 models are the final pieces to our triplex mower offering. Each machine is designed to offer the premium cut quality John Deere is known for, while also providing solutions to manage course conditions, machine control and routine maintenance."
All three of the new models feature an innovative offset cutting unit design, eliminating triplex ring by staggering the wheel tracks. With this design, operators can avoid triplex ring and compaction by changing the direction of travel each day, especially in clean up passes, giving turf an additional day to recover before being driven over again. Equipped with the Quick-Adjust 5 reel cutting units, the new models are designed for optimal cut quality and ease of adjustment. In addition, the new triplex mowers offer right-hand CommandARM controls, which move with the seat for more operator comfort.
The 2400 machine features a petrol-powered 14.2 kW (19 hp) V-Twin Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) engine. The EFI engine requires no mechanical choke to start the engine and offers better fuel efficiency. The 2550 machines utilise a 14.6 kW (19.6 hp) three-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine.
The 2550 E-Cut Hybrid model features an electric reel drive system, eliminating 102 hydraulic leak points to minimise leak opportunities, while also reducing fuel consumption and sound levels.
With the addition of the new models, John Deere has completed its triplex mower range. Launched last year at the 2019 Golf Industry Show, the 2700 and 2750 PrecisionCut™ Triplex Mowers, and the 2700 and 2750 E-Cut™ Hybrid Triplex Mowers feature an open platform design with easier grass catcher access and premium cut quality, regardless of operator. Featuring the proven passcode-protected advanced TechControl™ system, the supervisor is in more control of operator performance.
With the TechControl system, managers and technicians can input a variety of commands, controlling nearly everything regarding the operator's performance, including frequency of clip, turn speed, clean up pass speed, and how fast the cutting units raise and lower. The TechControl system ensures that regardless of the operator, the end results are the same, providing consistent cut quality on the course. With three models featuring offset cutting units and four with open platform designs, the John Deere line offers superintendents the flexibility to create a mower combination that can provide the best cut quality and appearance for their course.
The 2400 PrecisionCut and 2550 PrecisionCut will be available in late 2020 and the 2550 E-Cut Hybrid model is available now for order.
