220SL greens mowerJohn Deere's SL Series PrecisionCut walk-behind greens mowers: have been designed to deliver a top quality finish on golf courses, tennis courts, cricket squares, bowling greens and other fine turf areas. The mowers feature low noise and vibration levels, a powerful 4hp petrol engine and easy bedknife-to-reel adjustment.

The 180SL, 220SL and 260SL replace the previous C Series models, and feature a standard 11 blade, 127mm (5in) diameter reel with true cutting widths of 46, 56 and 66cm (18, 22 and 26in) respectively. The mowers employ a fixed-head version of the patented SpeedLink technology now incorporated on the cutting units of all John Deere PrecisionCut machines.

This innovative design allows height of cut adjustments to be made much more quickly and easily, from just one side of the mower. In addition, a new patented front roller bracket makes it equally simple to change the front roller when required.

2011 Series II 1600 Turbo WAM DThe latest Series II 1600 Turbo WAM out-front rotary mower features: A Stage IIIB (Interim Tier 4) 57hp diesel engine to meet emission standards; a fully adjustable high-backed air suspension seat to improve operator comfort; and run-flat tyres on the castor-action gauge wheels, to reduce downtime and increase productivity.

With its 3.25m (128in) overall cutting width and proven mechanical 4WD system, the 1600T WAM offers the ultimate in power, manoeuvrability, traction and operator comfort for large scale commercial mowing contractors, local authorities, golf courses and other public and private institutions.

Additional improvements for 2011 include more efficient hydraulics and deck motors, a two-post folding ROPS and Service ADVISOR diagnostics for extra serviceability.
