Launched this month from Jacobsen, the new Eclipse 360 ELiTE mower features lithium-ion batteries that the company says can cut 50+ large greens on a single charge. Almost silent in operation, it produces zero air pollution.
There is also a diesel/petrol hybrid model which offers reduced fuel consumption.
The patented ‘Frequency of Clip Control’ ensures a consistent cut by linking the reel speed to the forward speed. By having the reels turning in time with the wheels, users are able to keep a consistent speed of cut plus the option to increase it without reducing the mowing speed if preferred. This control is taken further with individual unit control that can adapt the cutting configuration to vary wheel runs and truly eliminate the annoying triplex ring that can result from over-mowing.
Attention has also been paid to access and maintenance. The unique swing-out centre cutting unit has been retained for quick and easy cleaning, maintenance, or swapping the unit. No tools are required to swing the unit out – simply remove the lynchpin and then replace it to hold the unit in the swung-out position.
The changes are the result of a comprehensive durability review that has also involved the addition of new brushless lift actuators with ten times the lifespan of the previous option.
Seven, nine, eleven, or fifteen blade reels are available for the E360 ELiTE to allow for varied applications of the machine, from golf greens and tees to sports fields and ornamental gardens.
