Jacobsen Launches New TurfCat Out-Front Rotary Mower ((August 11, 2014)

Jacobsen, a Textron (NYSE: TXT) Company, announced the launch of a completely refreshed TurfCat® out-front rotary mower. Featuring all-hydraulic deck and traction drives, the multi-purpose machine provides the lowest cost of ownership in its class.

The new TurfCat costs significantly less to maintain because it has no gear box, belts, pulleys, drive shaft or clutch to service. The new TurfCat has 15 less grease points and 212 less service parts compared to competitive products.

In addition to the TurfCat’s lower cost of ownership, the rotary mower is also extremely versatile, offering nine different deck configurations and five attachments for year-round use.

“The new TurfCat is a response to customer feedback we’ve gathered from the field,” said Bryan Holby, Product Manager at Jacobsen. “With labor and equipment budgets continuing to shrink, turf maintenance staffs are looking for equipment that is easier and cheaper to maintain. The new TurfCat requires significantly less daily maintenance – operators can simply hop off and move to the next job. That alone can save hundreds of dollars a year.”

In addition to offering a blower, dozer blade, hydraulic broom and snow blower, Jacobsen offers the industry’s only 60-inch fine cut flail deck for the TurfCat. The flail deck’s fine-cut blades discharge grass and debris down into the turf, reducing the danger of thrown projectiles. The unit’s double-edged blades stay sharper longer than rotary blades, further reducing cost of ownership and maintenance.

“The market is telling us that buyers are looking for the best value when they make an investment in new turf equipment,” said David Withers, President of Jacobsen. “They want a reliable product that’s simple to use, easy to maintain, and can do much more than just cut grass. The new TurfCat meets all those needs and more. We expect a lot of interest in this new machine.”

The new Jacobsen TurfCat out-front rotary will be available globally starting in August, 2014.
