New commercial mower from John Deere

Press Release


SALTEX 2004 will see the UK launch of John Deere's latest five gang, rear engined commercial mower for local authorities and contractors, alongside a wider range of brand new mowers, utility vehicles and compact tractors.

This new version of the 1905 mower features a Yanmar 47hp four-cylinder diesel engine with hydrostatic transmission and hydraulic diff lock as standard, and optional four wheel drive. It will now be available with 250mm (10in) diameter Jumbo six-blade reels, giving a total mowing width of 3.45m (136in), at cutting heights from 13 to 100mm (0.5 to 4in). These fixed head units are particularly suitable for the commercial and municipal mowing market, as they are designed specifically to handle large volumes of grass.

The Jumbo cutting reels are available in addition to John Deere's established ESP (extra strength & precision) units, which are the more popular choice for use on golf courses. The operator's platform comes with a fully adjustable seat equipped with integrated armrest controls, making the mower extremely comfortable and straightforward to drive.

The new John Deere 1905 mower will also be available with or without ROPS, or with a luxury Mauser cab, including optional air conditioning, and an air suspension seat as standard. It can travel at speeds of up to 25kph (15.5mph) on the road, or 13kph (8mph) when mowing, and the 50 litre fuel tank is sufficient for a full day's work, at an average fuel consumption of 4.5 litres per hour.
