New entry-level mower for professionals: John Deere PRO 47V

John Deere is expanding its range of walk-behind professional mowers with the new PRO 47V, a robust and flexible entry-level mower specifically designed for the needs of smaller landscaping businesses or as an additional machine for contractors.


With a cutting width of 47cm, the handy PRO 47V is highly manoeuvrable even in difficult areas or around obstacles. Its comparatively low weight and comfortable carry handles allow one person to transport the machine easily, which is particularly helpful when frequently changing locations. The folding handle and compact size of the mower also make it easy to transport, even in smaller vehicles.


Equipped with a powerful Subaru engine rated at a nominal 3.2kW and with variable-speed two-wheel drive, the mower can easily tackle different mowing conditions in areas up to 2500m².


In addition, the PRO 47V has a corrosion-resistant, steel-reinforced aluminium chassis including front protection and the reliable TurboStar System for optimum mowing and collection performance, as well as professional standard transmission and tyres. The operator can also work longer hours without tiring thanks to the mower’s standard AntiVibration system, which reduces the level of exposure to hand-arm vibration.


The PRO 47V mower complements John Deere’s professional range according to customer needs. The new machine is light and easy to operate, and gives landscapers and contractors working in different conditions the performance and cutting quality of a true professional machine.
