Jacobsen unveils new large-area reel mower

After months of industry buzz and speculation around a secret new product, Jacobsen unveiled the new LF510 large-area reel mower. The latest addition to Jacobsen’s legendary line of LF mowers, the LF510 delivers a superior quality-of-cut with surprising affordability.

The Jacobsen LF510 five-gang reel mower features a 100-inch width-of-cut, five-inch TrueSet cutting units and a Tier 4 final Kubota diesel engine. The mower also offers a host of simplified maintenance features including wet parking brakes, an onboard control module and easily-accessible service items.

The LF510 large-area reel mower will come standard with Jacobsen’s new TrueSet cutting units, first introduced in 2012. TrueSet cutting units are fast and easy to adjust while providing industry-leading holding power to deliver Jacobsen’s clean and consistent quality-of-cut through the life of the cutting unit.

“The market told us it wanted an affordable reel mower that provides a superior quality-of-cut,” said Rachel Luken, Product Manager for Jacobsen. “We answered that need by putting Jacobsen’s legendary five-inch Classic XP™ reels on an easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain tractor. In addition, technicians do not have to worry about additional exhaust after-treatment filtration devices, technology, or service because the LF510’s rugged and reliable Kubota engine is compliant with Tier 4 Final emission regulations.”

With the LF510, Jacobsen now offers one of broadest line-ups of reel mowers in the industry. The company also offers the five-gang LF550/LF570 with 100-inch width of cut; the five-gang super lightweight SLF-1880™ that offers an 82” width of cut and the LF-4677 a seven-gang fairway mower that offers a massive 139” width-of-cut.

“Our industry is still under financial strain and sports field managers are being asked to do more with less,” said David Withers, President of Jacobsen. “Our new LF510 large-area reel mower is an affordable machine that gives sports field managers dependable performance and superb turf conditions each and every day.”

The LF510 will be available this spring and will be prominently displayed at the Sports Turf Managers Association Conference in Daytona Beach, Florida later this month. For more information and full specifications on the LF510, please visit Jacobsen.com.
