2013 News Releases and Information
John Deere updates walk-behind mower line
All five models have a cutting width of 47cm and are suitable for domestic use on lawns up to 1500m2 in size. They include the entry level R47 push mower and four self-propelled models: the single speed R47S, the variable speed R47V, the variable speed R47VE with electric start and the R47KB with integrated rear roller.
The handlebar, mower deck and engine hood of these new R47 Series models now share the same family design as the rest of John Deere’s wide range of walk behind mowers. For more comfortable and intuitive speed adjustment, the R47VE is now equipped with a new variable speed drive. In addition, a more ergonomically designed lever makes it easier to adjust the height of cut on all five models.
Also new for 2013, an optional ‘plug and play’ mulching kit is available for all the mowers. This is extremely easy and quick to fit and remove, and can be simply closed off without needing to remove the TurboStar fan and fan housing. The integral TurboStar mowing system provides excellent grass lift and maximum airflow for a perfect cut and superior grass collection in all conditions.
The new R47 Series walk-behind mowers will be available from John Deere dealers in spring 2013.
