Jacobsen, a Textron Inc. company, has launched its Professional Series commercial-grade mowers and utility vehicles.
Built for a wide range of turf professionals including sports fields, the new Professional Series mowers and utility vehicles includes three lines of zero-turn mowers and six different models of utility vehicles.
“One of our main goals with the launch of these exciting new products was to offer a wide range of options that satisfy many different categories of customer needs,” says Bryan Holby, product manager for Jacobsen. “The new mowers and utility vehicles offer a myriad of options in features, benefits and pricing that will appeal to everyone from large fleet owners to one-truck-and-trailer operations.”
Jacobsen calls the Professional Series RZT line of ride-on zero turn mowers its “flagship” machine of the group. The RZT can mow up to 5.3 acres per hour while equipped with a 25 or 27 horsepower Kawasaki FX engine or a fuel efficient 27 horsepower Kohler EFI engine.
Jacobsen also now offers the SZT stand-on mower with a 26 horsepower Vanguard engine and two different deck sizes.
The WZT walk-behind mower that features an 18 horsepower Briggs & Stratton engine and single or dual-drive drivetrain options.
The new Jacobsen utility vehicles are led by the gas-powered Truckster MS/MX, featuring a large capacity of 1,200 pounds and a top speed of 17 MPH. The MX model has an optional linked suspension on allows it to handle rough terrain.
The Truckster MS-E/MX-E, Jacobsen’s new electric utility vehicle, is powered with a 72-volt electric drivetrain and a capacity of up to 1,000 pounds.
The gas-powered Truckster LS/LX offers an 800-pound capacity and a polyethylene bed.
“Today’s professional turf managers are being asked to take on more responsibilities and projects,” says David Withers, President of Jacobsen. “They need a wide range of maintenance tools to help them get the job done quickly and easily. That’s why we’ve expanded our product line to include nine more dependable machines to our portfolio of products.”
All of these new products will be at next month’s GIE+EXPO, held Oct. 21-23 in Louisville, Ky.
