New John Deere lawn and garden equipment for 2016New additions for 2016 to John Deere’s extensive range of lawn tractors and walk-behind lawnmowers include TANGO E5 Series II, the next generation robotic mower with smarter navigation technology, and the X350R rear discharge lawn tractor which builds on the success of John Deere’s proven X300 Series.The TANGO E5 Series II robotic mower is designed to make life easier by maintaining your lawn for you. The lithium-ion battery delivers enough power to cover grass areas up to 2200m2 (about half an acre), mowing in a random pattern within boundaries defined by concealed wires which are easily installed in the garden. Smart navigation technology and a new operator interface make it easy to set up and to control. Safety is guaranteed as the blade stops automatically when the mower is lifted up, or comes into contact with any obstacles. A robotic mower cuts more often than a conventional mower, and the clippings go straight back into the lawn as a valuable fertiliser. There’s no noise, no mess, and no effort - just a perfect lawn.The X350R lawn tractor features a new 107cm rear discharge Accel Deep mower deck, designed with a deep body and flat top to allow a clean flow of grass cuttings for excellent cut quality even in normally difficult tall grass. The durable heavy duty deck ensures many hours of trouble free operation. With a cutting width of 107cm (42in) and an adjustable height of cut from 25 to 102mm (1 to 4in), this effortlessly simple to operate lawn tractor is suitable for areas of grass up to 8000m2. The mulching kit supplied with the machine increases the machine’s versatility. All the 2016 models in John Deere’s X300 and X500 Series come with multiple improvements, such as the new mower deck, and easy to operate controls. The lawn tractor’s ‘best cut zone’ feature enables the operator to always run the machine at its optimum speed and still maintain great cut quality. The optional MulchControl attachment means changing from side discharge to mulching or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever.The Ztrak zero turn lawn mowers deliver on-the-spot turning, controlled by intuitive motion control levers for simple but efficient manoeuvring around obstacles. With a choice of 107 and 122cm (42 and 48in) cutting widths, all three models have been updated for 2016 with the new Accel Deep mower deck and smart new styling. The R54RKB rear-roller walk-behind mower has also been updated for 2016 with a new Subaru petrol engine for improved performance and reliability. Suitable for mowing areas up to 2500m2, the R54RKB has a steel rear roller for a striped finish, variable speed, 54cm (21in) cutting width, Blade Brake Clutch, aluminium deck and TurboStar mowing system to ensure a precision cut and great collection even in tough or damp conditions.
