Ransomes Jacobsen, the Ipswich based turf maintenance equipment manufacturer, has introduced the Jacobsen AR522 fine cut rotary mower. Ransomes Jacobsen is a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company.
Specifically designed for maintaining greens and tees surrounds and intermediate areas of rough, this five-deck rotary replaces the current Jacobsen AR5. It couples the improved class-leading performance of the AR5 with new TrimTek™ cutting decks that were first used on the Jacobsen AR3 triplex rotary.
The design of the new TrimTek™ deck features an exclusive downdraft blade that keeps the clippings suspended longer for exceptional mulching results. Exclusive three-tiered discharge openings distribute clippings more evenly for a superior after-cut appearance. The volume of each individual deck has been increased by 26% allowing the AR522 to cut in the most severe conditions. Using a single spanner, the decks can be easily converted from discharge to mulch in minutes.
It also boasts class leading traction capability with on-demand control from the operator and features more horsepower per width of cut than any mower in its class. Coupled with the new improved decks and climbing system, the AR522 is built to cut in conditions that other machines just cannot handle.
To ensure that users of the Jacobsen AR5 can take advantage of the new TrimDek technology, retrofit kits are now available. Utilising the existing motors, frame and castor wheels these kits will ensure that the AR5 can maintain the finest possible cut over difficult terrain.
