0 Jacobsen Launches First Lithium Powered Super Light Five Reel Mower

Jacobsen has perfected its claim as leader of lithium mowers in the sports market with the release of the new SLF1 ELiTE.

Sixty million hours of ELiTE Lithium use on fine turf facilities has helped create an industry defining five reel mower that makes no compromises on performance.

Users get up to seven hours of operation per charge with Jake's leading 500 plus amp-hour Li-ion battery, which is powered by Samsung SDI lithium technology. This run time ensures no lithium mower can cut the largest training facilities in sport better on a single charge.

The machine offers convenient on-board overnight charging that fits with most existing universal electrical infrastructure, making it as simple as plugging it in at the end of the day ready for the next.

Practical convenience is at the forefront of the SLF1 ELiTE with virtually maintenance-free next-gen components, and the introduction of an advanced on-board and remote-ready monitoring system. With this in place, machine diagnostics can be analyzed to give you the solutions you need to keep cutting.

The control center, located on an adjustable swing-out console arm, features lockable speed and Jacobsen's trusted frequency of clip controls to guarantee a consistent and exceptional finish every time you're on the turf.

As part of the development stage, the SLF1 ELiTE was used by English League One team Ipswich Town Football Club. For Grounds Manager Ben Connell the mower provides the cut quality but, more importantly, helps create a better working environment or his team.

"It's good to be involved in developing something as good as this because this is the future. It's a really big step forward now, and it's the beginnings of a new era onto something that's going to be cleaner, much more efficient, and environmentally friendly," Ben said.

"As a club, we're looking at every area of how we can be better, and it's not just the diesel we were using before and things like that. It's also the environment with the noise, and it's important for the neighbors and our staff as well.

"It can cause problems with hearing and increase stress levels when there's a lot of noise going on. This mower helps with fatigue, and it's such a quiet pleasure to use because it's not shaking and vibrating, so it's a thumbs up from all of the ground staff here."

With the SLF1 ELiTE, Jake's signature quality of cut comes with new operator benefits. Lithium power provides silent cutting with minimal vibration, which reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity.

Silence means cutting when you want to. Whether it's early in the morning or late at night, you can mow at the best time for you, regardless of your surroundings.

Ultimate productivity is cutting where you want. The SLF1 ELiTE was tested in wet conditions and challenging slopes to ensure the power goes where you need it. The specialized agile cutting units allow the mower to get into the cut where other machines can't.

The hydraulic-free design rounds off a proven and powerful machine that is leading the way for lithium mowers in range and cut quality.
