•Integrated ComfortCab
•Diesel Engine

They say there’s a mower for every job. We say there’s a mower that can handle just about any job you throw at it. It’s called the 1500 Series TerrainCut.

The most capable year-round front mount mowers we’ve ever made, this lineup delivers unsurpassed performance. With an available factory-installed ComfortCab, powerful diesel engines that meet US EPA T4 requirements, and 7-Iron™ PRO decks, the 1500 TerrainCut Series Mowers are more than up to the task.

Make that tasks – because the 1500 Series is also the most versatile front mower we’ve ever made. When you combine the full array of available attachments and implements with that heated, cooled, sealed, sit-back-and-get-to-work-in-any-weather cab, you’ve got a machine that pretty much stops at nothing. Mowing and sweeping, pushing and plowing? It’s all in a day’s work. Every day of the year.

TerrainCut 1500 Series Mowers are great on grass. They’re even better when you’ve also got snow, dirt, gravel or leaves piling up underfoot. Just swap out the implements (sold separately), and keep right on crossing jobs off your to-do list.

Say hello to your climate-controlled throne.
The factory-installed ComfortCab comes standard with full HVAC, so you can stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer (a full 20° cooler than the outside temperature). It also has a fully adjustable Air Suspension Upholstered Seat, and large sealed windows with panoramic views.
- Maximum comfort. Standard cup holder, interior light, rearview mirror along with optional electronic cruise control and stereo systems – all the comforts of home.
- Run hot and cold. Never let a little thing like a cold front or heat wave keep you from your appointed rounds.
- See and be seen. Two-speed windshield wipers and an inside rear mirror make it easier to see what you’re getting into, and out of. The front and rear-mounted warning lights and turn signals? That’s to make sure they always see you coming.

On the clock 24/7/365. Enhancing comfort every second.
From here, the workday looks pretty good. And feels pretty great. You’ll be master of all you survey, from early morning to late in the evening (thanks to optional beacon light and rear worklights). And in complete control of your seat, climate and favorite music.

Sit tall in the saddle.
At the center is the factory-installed Air Ride Seat, complete with pushbutton suspension adjustment. At your fingertips is an ergonomically designed control station, with everything placed to enhance comfort. And out in front of you is a great view of everything in your path, thanks to a sleek design that improves sightlines.

Beautiful cuts. Thanks to this beast of a deck.
John Deere’s exclusive 7-Iron™ PRO decks are recognized as the strongest, most durable decks around. And with good reason – at 5.5 inches (13.9 cm) deep and 7-gauge sturdy, they’re a force to be reckoned with. All that quantity is matched by unsurpassed cut quality – on all types of grass, in all kinds of conditions – thanks to details like deep decks that provide better airflow, cold-forged, heat-treated spindle shafts and an 18-in. (45.72 cm) wide discharge chute for even dispersal.

What can’t they do?
As far as the 1500 Series TerrainCut Mowers are concerned, there’s no such thing as downtime. If there isn’t any grass to cut, they’re ready to clear driveways. If there’s no snow to blow, they’ll happily tackle some material piles. And if there’s no dirt to push around, just get out the broom and sweep up every sidewalk in sight.

And with the factory-installed, fully enclosed ComfortCab, along with a deck lift system that makes swapping implements a snap, you won’t have to worry about operators having cold feet. Or getting hot under the collar.

Always powerful. Always at your service.
The all-diesel engine lineup in the TerrainCut 1500 Series – including 24.2 hp (17.8 kW)1 and 37.4 hp (27.5 kW)1 Tier 4 models – is all about power, pure and simple. They’re built to start when you want them to. Run as long as you need them to. And cut through the tough stuff whenever you ask them to.

Equally powerful is our commitment to serviceability – we design these machines so they’re as easy to work on as they are to work with, with everything from rear hoods that tilt up to Service ADVISOR™ connectivity on some models for quick diagnostics.
