John Deere’s Harrogate highlights

Steve Mitchellin Industry News

1026R compact tractor DMachines from John Deere's newly expanded 2012 product range for golf courses and amenity turf will be featured at BTME & Clubhouse 2012 in Harrogate (main stand no. M52).

These include the new 220SL PrecisionCut walk-behind greens mower, which has been designed to deliver a top quality finish on golf courses, tennis courts, cricket squares, bowling greens and other fine turf areas. This is being shown alongside a special display of John Deere's complete range of E-Cut hybrid mowers, equipped with the company's award winning QA cutting units, and the electric E Gator utility vehicle.

John Deere's innovative hybrid electric technology was the first to market in 2005, and is now featured on the broadest single brand range of hybrid amenity turf mowers on the market. These include the 220E walk-behind greens mower, the 2500E triplex greens mower, the 8000E three-wheeled, ultra-light fairway mower, and the 7500E and 8500E fairway mowers - also the industry's first hybrid fairway machines.

All the mowers feature a unique Speed Link system for extremely quick height of cut adjustment; this effectively allows the reels on an entire fleet to be set in the time it previously took to adjust the height of cut on just one mower.

A wide range of quick change attachments and implements includes a quick attach front loader with a lift capacity of 380kg to full height, and a mid-mounted AutoConnect side discharge rotary mower deck. The additional option of snow blades and brushes makes the 1026R an ideal all-purpose, year-round workhorse.

This tractor has a 26hp three-cylinder diesel engine and a two-range hydrostatic transmission with Twin Touch pedals for ease of use and precise operation. Both four-wheel drive and power steering are standard, providing excellent manoeuvrability in all conditions.

John Deere Financial's autumn interest-free finance programme, aimed at UK golf and bowls clubs, means you can still order any new golf & turf machine at any time from now until the end of November 2011 and make 1+2 annual payments at zero per cent interest (subject to terms and conditions). From December to the end of February 2012, the payment schedule for this programme changes to 2+22 monthly interest-free instalments.

Further details of these and other new finance programmes, plus the latest new machines, are available at, from John Deere dealers nationwide, or by calling Freephone 0800 085 2522.
