AR-5

The new Jacobsen AR-5™ is built to handle all types of terrain without scalping the turf. Its five rotary decks float independently using unique lift arms that are designed to keep the cutting decks in the same vertical plane. The decks will effectively hug undulating ground to produce the finest cut possible with a rotary cutter. The mower features a 60-hp Kubota diesel engine to handle the most demanding turf conditions. The AR-5 mower decks can be converted from mulching to rear discharge in a matter of minutes.

MAGKnife

MAGKnife by Jacobsen has set the standard for bedknives. The revolutionary, patent-pending technology uses powerful magnets to firmly hold the bedknife to the bedbar of reel mowers. The flexibility of the system allows foreign objects to pass cleanly between the cutting blade and the bedknife without damaging equipment. The magnets also eliminate the 13 or more screws used on traditional bedknives, making the replacement process as easy as a snapping the bedknife off and clicking it back into place. MAGKnife has reduced changing times from hours to a few minutes, and enables reel mowers to have a new, sharp bedknife everyday.
