“The new 1500 Series TerrainCut offers an industry-exclusive, factory-installed ComfortCab for climate-controlled comfort and improved ergonomic controls for ease of use,” said Carl Agee, John Deere product manager. “Ideal for governmental, institutional and commercial landscape operations, the 1500 Series is a productive and versatile Final Tier 4 emissions solution.
“The 1500 Series offers true four-season capabilities,” Agee continues. “These machines can cut all grass types in dry or wet conditions, with even clipping dispersion. They can also blow snow, or clean streets and walkways with ease, providing a robust and versatile equipment option in all environments.”
