3-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine3-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine

The 1500 Series TerrainCut Front Mowers are powered by liquid-cooled, 3-cylinder diesel engines.

These engines feature low levels of exhaust and emissions, reduced noise levels, and excellent fuel economy.They also meet theEnvironmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier4 emissions requirements.

Models 1570, 1575, 1580, and 1585 are biodiesel compatible from the factory up to B20. Model 1550 requires an optionalkit to be compatible with B20 biodiesel fuel.

Key features of the engine include:

  • Economical cast-in block cylinder design for good cooling and long life
  • Indirect fuel injection (model 1550)
  • Direct fuel injection (model 1570, 1575, 1580, 1585)
    • Injects fuel directly on top of pistons for more efficient combustion
    • Delivers more horsepower per gallon of fuel
    • Improves starting
    • Develops more horsepower per gallon of fuel; improves starting
  • Aluminum alloy pistons with built-in steel struts are lightweight to reduce connection rod bearing loads and provide good heat transfer characteristics
  • Design permits tighter tolerances and neutralizes expansion of the piston, thereby reducing blow-by gas and noise from the piston slap
  • Higher top rings on the piston and a thinner head gasket greatly reduce the volume of unburned waste gases and increase combustion efficiency
  • Timing gears and injector drive gears utilize helical profile gears to help lower engine noise; gear teeth have a newly designed roll-off profile, giving almost no clash, no noise, and no backlash

Rear weights (UC13263) are required based on machine configuration. Must also order TCB10303, rear weight mounting bracket.

*Mower deck offset for trimming capability. Vehicle track width is 2 in. (5.1 cm)wider on the discharge side of deck.This may cause the tire to drive over uncut grass on discharge side of deck.

NOTE: These mower decks will not retrofit to F900 Series or F1145 Front Mowers.

Rotate for Service (RFS)
Mower deck showing RFS featureMower deck showing RFS feature

RFS feature provides access for cleaning and maintenance of the mower decks:

  • The rotation angle will vary depending on deck size and power unit tire size.
  • No tools arerequired to access belts.
  • The underside of the mower deck is easy to access.
  • Easy on/off design simplifiesinstalling and removing mower decks.
  • Top, greaseable spindles can be accessed without removing belt covers.

The RFS positionalso reduces the length of the machine for trailering.

Certification

TerrainCutFront Mowers comply with ANSI B71.4 safety certification and ISO 5395.

  • Gusseted design puts reinforcement where it is needed.
  • Strength of cast iron protects against damage from blade impacts.
  • Grease fitting is mounted at the top for easy access.
  • Grease pressure-relief valve minimizes seal damage from overfilling with grease and keeps debris from entering housing.
  • The 8-in. (20.3-cm) diameter housing distributes loads and impacts to minimize deck-shell damage.
  • Spindle allows ability to be rebuilt.

NOTE: The 72-in. (183-cm) 7-Iron V-Flex Side-Discharge Mower Deck has an aluminum centerspindle housing. The outside blades are driven by cast-iron gearboxes.

The moweris designed to provide exceptional cut quality at highertravel speeds:

  • The mower deck is stamped from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) steel to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside, with fewer sharp corners, for reduced material buildup.
    • Provides precision components and long deck life
    • Single piece of steel means no welds to break
    • Provides a smooth underside, without corners, reducing material buildup
  • 0.75-in. (1.9-cm) solid steel bar is welded to mower deck perimeter for added strength.
  • The rounded corners of the stamped deck help distribute impact stress to reduce the potential of damage when the mower contacts trees, rocks, curbs, and other fixed obstacles.
  • A deep-deck design of 5.5-in. (14-cm) delivers excellent airflow so material can be processed quickly and efficiently.
  • 1-in. to 6-in. (2.5-cm to 12.7-cm) cutting heights, in 0.5-in. (1.3-cm) increments, allow the operator to match all mowing conditions.

Unique baffling system allows grass to stand up before being cut, producing a uniform length and appearance:

  • Baffling system eliminates clumping, blowout, andwindrowing.
  • Wide discharge opening provides even clipping dispersal for an excellent, finishedappearance in all conditions.

  • The mower deck is stamped from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) steel to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside, with fewer sharp corners, for reduced material buildup.
    • Provides precision components and long deck life
    • Single piece of steel means no welds to break
    • Provides a smooth underside, without corners, reducing material buildup
  • 0.75-in. (1.9-cm) solid steel bar is welded to mower deck perimeter for added strength.
  • The rounded corners of the stamped deck help distribute impact stress to reduce the potential of damage when the mower contacts trees, rocks, curbs, and other fixed obstacles.
  • A deep-deck design of 5.5-in. (14-cm) delivers excellent airflow so material can be processed quickly and efficiently.
  • 1-in. to 6-in. (2.5-cm to 12.7-cm) cutting heights, in 0.5-in. (1.3-cm) increments, allow the operator to match all mowing conditions.

Unique baffling system allows grass to stand up before being cut, producing a uniform length and appearance:

  • Baffling system eliminates clumping, blowout, andwindrowing.
  • Wide discharge opening provides even clipping dispersal for an excellent, finishedappearance in all conditions.

TerrainCut™Front Mowers have an operator-presence system.

To start the engine the following conditions must be met:

  • Master brake must be depressed or the parking brake locked; the hydrostatic foot controls will then be in the neutral position.
  • PTO must be disengaged
  • Ignition key must be used.

In addition, once the engine is running, an interlock automatically shuts the engine and PTO off if the operator leaves the seat. To keep the engine running, the operator must disengage the PTO and set the parking brake before dismounting.

Tilt steering and headlights are standard equipment to reduce cost
