The 180SL, 220SL and 260SL replace the previous C Series models and offer true cutting widths of 46cm, 56cm and 66cm respectively. They feature a fixed-head version of the patented SpeedLink technology now incorporated on the cutting units of all JD PrecisionCut mowers.

This allows height adjustments - from 22.2mm down to 2mm - to be made quickly and easily from just one side of the machine. A new patented front roller bracket makes it equally simple to change the front roller.

Optional front-mounted, adjustable turf brushes can be used to help stand the grass up and remove dew before cutting. A rotary brush and greens tender conditioner are also optional.

All three models are fitted with a 4hp Honda petrol engine. The mowers are also equipped with an operator-presence control on the adjustable loop-style handlebar.

Base-list prices range from £4,462 for the 180SL to £5,425 for the 260SL.
