Jacobsen is leading the charge at the 2022 GCSAA Conference and Trade Show in San Diego with a line-up of electric lithium mowers and Cushman vehicles.
Forty percent of booth 2437 will feature electric lithium products as well as a full breadth of equipment, including the Eclipse 360 ELiTE, AR530, HM600 Flail mower, the Cushman Hauler PRO ELiTE, and PACE Technologies. Jacobsen will also be showing the first look at its electric lithium out front rotary concept.
Jacobsen's push into fully electric machines began with the Eclipse range over a decade ago. In its latest lithium iteration, the Eclipse 360 ELiTE has been put to the test all over the world, tackling the challenges of Irish links golf at Hogs Head and Waterville golf clubs as well as proving its championship credentials at Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Golf Club and Lodge.
Live product walkarounds from the engineers that designed this machine will be combined with video testimonials from the Superintendents that have used it to give a 360-degree view of Jacobsen's most elite machine yet.
International marketing manager for Jacobsen, Adam Underwood, explains that the Eclipse 360 ELiTE is only the first step in Jake's electric journey and that there is more to come at the GCSAA Trade Show.
"Our electric journey started with the Eclipse, but what we really created is momentum," Adam explains. "We've spent more than 15 million hours on this journey with lithium technology, and we are excited to introduce our new prototype lithium out front rotary mower to the delegates at the GCSAA Trade Show."
"This is likely to be the first opportunity Superintendents have had to see these new machines. We want them to experience it in person and then be transported to beautiful links courses in Ireland and the magnificent Bay Hill and witness the quality the Eclipse 360 can offer in every landscape."
"We are really looking forward to showing what we believe is the future of mowing and the innovations we have been working on for the lithium out front rotary mower."
In addition to the in-booth activity, Jake is also partnering with the Equipment Manager Roundtable Power Hour from 8 am on Thursday 10, which will tackle the hottest issues in equipment management, including preventative maintenance issues, communication with your Superintendent, and mentoring the next generation of technicians.
A workshop on Understanding Mowing Technology, Quality of Cut, and After Cut Appearance Issues is another seminar partnered by Jake. Starting at 8 am on Thursday 10, this seminar will explore the vital relationships between reel mower applications, quality of cut, and after cut appearance.
