John Deere sports turf equipment is designed to tackle a wide range of tasks, making them some of the most popular products on the market. Everything from PrecisionCut Reel Mowers to field rakes make professionals’ jobs easier in this field, and it couldn’t be done without Deere’s commitment to delivering top-of-the-line products to its customers. Let’s take a look at two separate use cases of John Deere sports turf equipment and how it has helped professionals in their respective sectors of the industry.
The Charleston RiverDogs field sees an ample amount of use, and not just for baseball – concerts and other celebrations are held at the field. Turf manager Mike Williams is responsible for keeping the field going and growing, regardless of the challenges that are thrown his way. Luckily, he has John Deere equipment and support from his local dealer to ensure that everything is always running smoothly. Williams knows that whenever he has an emergency, he can pick up the phone and call his local John Deere support team to immediately come out and help. To keep his field looking optimal, Williams relies on his 1200A rake. This machine delivers 13.5 horsepower, and a rake and front blade can each attach to the equipment. A torque converter and transaxle design provide an ample amount of traction, as well as a tight turning radius.
Charlotte Knights’ Sports Turf Manager Matt Parrott is a two-time STMA Turf Manager of the Year, but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t face any challenges on the job. To keep his field looking spectacular, he relies on John Deere Mobile Service and Support. In addition, he relies on the 1200A rake to ensure that his field is always ready for whatever comes its way. High flotation tires with low ground pressure minimize compaction, and easy-to-use foot controls make for efficient operation. For trimming, Parrott is dedicated to the 7200A PrecisionCut mower, which features an eHydro hydrostatic pump and large capacity wheel motors, as well as a Final Tier 4 diesel engine for excellent mowing power. At the end of the day, he’s left with a field that looks as beautiful as it is ready for play.
If you have any questions about the 7200A PrecisionCut mower, 1200A rake, or any other pieces of John Deere sports turf equipment, you can contact your local John Deere dealer.
