How to deliver a once-in-a-lifetime performance. And do it all over again, tomorrow.
Double-acting steering cylinder equalizes right and left pressure, just like a greens mower, so it’s incredibly easy to hold a straight line.
Foot-operated tilt steering allow steering wheel to be positioned perfectly for an operator, and dual pedal foot controls work with the natural motion of your foot. There’s plenty of operator legroom and a deluxe seat with weight, tilt, fore/aft, height and lumbar adjustment is standard equipment.
Combo armrest/control center moves with the seat and keeps all vital functions (like lights, lift/lower lever, PTO, throttle and optional cruise control) right at the operator's fingertips.
Standard Roll Over Protection System (ROPS) with seat belts increases operator protection zone to equal that of a 4-post ROPS. ROPS meets pending ISO 21299 standards.
All checks are located on the left-hand side, and oil cooler tilts out for easy cleaning.
A 37.1 hp engine on the 7000s provides plenty of reserve power for optimum cutting. While a 43.1 horsepower turbo-charged diesel engine with an intercooler on the 8000s is engineered for the toughest conditions and hill-climbing.
Engine horsepower is provided by the engine manufacturer for comparison purposes only. Actual operating horsepower will be less.

Optional GRIP All-Wheel Drive
Available on all models, optional GRIP All-Wheel Drive instantly transfers hydraulic flow for added traction from the wheels that slip to those with grip. And since the flow can cross to an opposite rear wheel, the system maintains its footing not only climbing up hills, but also on side hills, too.
Powerful standard 2WD
The 2WD is so good on these mowers, you might think its 4WD. Large front wheel motors (17.1 cu. in. on the 7000s/ 18.9 cu.-in. on the 8000s) ensure inclines don’t stand a chance.
Cut Quality Advantage
On all John Deere fairway mowers, there are 2 exclusive designs to give you the best cut on your fairways. The first is the rear attaching point yoke system (versus a front attaching system) that keeps the rear roller engaged with the turf. The second is the hydraulic down pressure that can apply additional force to the rear roller. These two features work together to prevent the unit from bouncing, which can cause ripples in the turf. The result: A consistent cut. Every time.
