Jacobsen®, a Textron (NYSE: TXT) company, announced today the launch of the new AR722T™ contour rotary mower, a machine that boosts productivity with class-leading power, exceptional contour following and cutting width flexibility. The new mower is designed to maintain intermediate golf roughs; green and tee surrounds; and sports and recreation fields.
The AR722T features a rugged and reliable 65.2 hp Kubota® turbo-charged diesel that delivers unmatched power – allowing the mower to maintain performance and blade speed in the most challenging terrain without slowing down.
“Golf course superintendents and sports field managers need their rotary mowers to easily handle large areas of grass in a short amount of time,” said Bryan Holby, Product Manager for Jacobsen. “The Jacobsen AR722T is all about getting more done in less time. It’s the only seven-gang rotary mower on the market with the power to get the job done without compromising speed or after-cut appearance.”
The new AR722T is equipped with the SureTrac™ parallel-cross-series traction system, which provides superior performance on hills. The AR722T’s advanced weight transfer system allows for balancing of the machine’s weight between the traction unit and decks for optimal traction and ground following in varying terrains. The AR722T is also equipped with Jacobsen’s exclusive TrimTek™ decks that feature a downdraft blade for superior mulching capabilities.
For added flexibility, a joystick-controlled hydraulic deck lift system allows the AR722T to mow with five, six or seven decks – providing mow-width flexibility and maneuverability around obstacles.
“Golf course superintendents, sports field managers, and municipal turf managers are under a lot of pressure to increase productivity,” said David Withers, President of Jacobsen. “That’s why we put a trusted Kubota engine with class-leading power under the hood of the new AR722T. Our customers can get the job done faster and easier without sacrificing power or results.”
The new Jacobsen AR722T contour rotary will be available globally starting in January, 2014.
