“Since Oscar Jacobsen founded the company 95 years ago, his original vision really hasn’t changed much over the years,” said David Withers, president & CEO of Jacobsen. “He set out to provide equipment that helped turf managers provide superior conditions, maximise productivity and reduce costs. From his original putting greens mower to today’s HR Series of wide-area rotary mowers, we’ve delivered on that vision for 95 years.
