Jacobsen, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, has announced the availability of the R-311 Turbo rotary mower with a more powerful, turbocharged Kubota V2403-M engine. Rated at 60hp (56hp net @ 2600 RPM) the new R-311 has the power to tackle the toughest turf management jobs. The 45 hp model is now discontinued.
The new engine provides more torque making the R-311 the ideal mowing solution for the challenging turf conditions often found on sports fields, parks, recreational areas and golf courses.
Further enhancements over the previous 45 hp model include a removable storage console and improved engine bay sealing. Serviceability has been improved by the addition of an angled quick-drain valve for the hydraulic tank, external battery charging posts and replaceable height of cut adjustment brackets.
Quinn Derby, product manager at Jacobsen commented, “While upgrading the power unit we’ve also taken the opportunity to improve the durability and serviceability making the R-311 one of the best wide area rotary mowers available to turf managers.”
With nearly 90 years of experience in the turf maintenance industry, Jacobsen has built a legacy of precision craftsmanship, legendary quality of cut and unmatched expertise.
Dedicated solely to delivering perfectly groomed turf, Jacobsen equipment is used on some of the finest golf courses, sports fields and other formal turf areas across the United States and the world, through an extensive distribution network and the international Ransomes brand.
