How To Be A Pioneer As Well As Entirely Practical
Comfort and Convenience
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.
Exclusive double-acting steering cylinder equalizes right and left pressure, just like a greens mower, so it's incredibly easy to hold a straight line.
Command Arm moves with seat so that vital controls and diagnostics are always right at the operator's fingertips.
Foot-operated tilt steering allows steering wheel to be positioned perfectly for an operator, and patented dual pedal foot controls work with the neutral 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.
All checks are located on the left-hand side, and oil cooler tilts out for easy cleaning.
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.
Power to Mow and More
A 37.1 hp engine on the 7500 provides plenty of reserve power for optimum cutting. 43.1 horsepower turbo-charged diesel engine with an intercooler on the 8500 is engineered for the toughest conditions and hill-climbing.
Powerful Standard 2WD
The 2WD is so good on these mowers, you might think it's 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.
E-Cut Hybrid Technology
Electrically driven cutting units eliminate the possibility of hydraulic leaks in the reel drive circuits. Engine can be throttled down to save fuel and reduce noise, without affecting the reel speed. It always stays steady at 2200 rpm for a consistently ideal frequency of clip.
Quick and Easy
Standard Quick Adjust Cutting Units
A revolutionary Speed Link system makes it possible to adjust height-of-cut to both sides of the reel in no time. A linking bar connects both sides of the rear roller to a high-reduction ratio worn gear, allowing 1/1000th of an inch adjustments to be made to both sides of the roller simultaneously.
Consistent Cut Quality
Adjustable hydraulic down pressure gives you the ultimate control in changing environments, and rear-attaching point maintain cutting units at a consistent height of cut.
