The electric reel design meets the largest customer needs:
An innovative 56-volt, 240-amp alternator provides plenty of power for mowing, as well as more rigorous applications of scalping for overseeding and verticutting up to 1/4” (6.35 mm) deep.
To handle the toughest loads that often come with Quick-Adjust 7 (QA7) applications, the reel motors have been updated compared to the QA7 design. The QA7 motors feature longer cooling fins for optimal cooling, and a larger internal bearing design.
QA7 Electric Reel Motor
Power starts with the engine, and the 6080A, 6500A, and 6700A PrecisionCut™ and 6080A and 6500A E-Cut™ Hybrid Fairway Mowers feature a 3-cylinder, 18.4-kW (24.7-hp) diesel engine that has a strong reputation for power and performance. The engine is Stage V emission compliant, without the use of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) or diesel particulate filter (DPF) to lower up-front acquisition costs.
The engine provides power for undulating conditions, while also being able to power fairway tender conditioners and rear roller power brushes while running any reel combination.
The air-intake system is also designed to pull clean air from the front of the machine behind the operator's seat, rather than dirty air from the rear of the machine. This improves engine performance and efficiency during those hot, dusty times of the year.
The 6080A, 6500A, and 6700A PrecisionCut™ and 6080A, 6500A, and 8000A E-Cut™ Hybrid Fairway Mowers help to make fairways that look like greens a reality.
An innovative, smooth tire design minimizes compaction and tire marking, especially in turns, giving a look similar to that from a riding greens mower. The GRIP all-wheel drive traction system works in combination with the smooth tire design to give a greens-quality appearance without sacrificing traction.
These machines also excel at weight distribution, ensuring each tire sees an equal amount of weight over a large tire surface area for a ground pressure that is friendly to the surface of the turf.
This three-wheel stance is common with riding greens mowers in the market today. This provides an after-cut appearance that is so good it looks like the fairways were mowed by a greens mower. The three-wheel stance also excels in maneuverability, allowing for tight turning at the end of passes for increased productivity.
For those who prefer to use a treaded tire rather than a smooth tire, a fairway tread is also available through Parts.
Passcode-protected TechControl display enables quickly setting or changing mowing speed, turning speed, or transport speed to limit variations in performance by different operators.
Quickly adjust the mow or transport speed to make sure mow speed is what is needed for the changing conditions. The setting can be adjusted precisely using a speedometer app on a smartphone or global positioning system (GPS) device.
Use the TechControl to slow the machine during turns while mowing and protect against turf scuffing and aggressive turning operators.
The turn speed control engages when in mow and the cutting units are lifted for turns. Once the turn is made and the cutting units are lowered, the machine speed returns to the set mow speed.
The turn speed is a percentage of mow speed. When set to 100 percent, turn speed control is off or allows 100 percent of the mow speed in turns. Turn speed setting of 50 percent allows only 50 percent of the set mow speed to be reached during turns.
Here is an example:
Mow speed = 9.66 km/h (6 mph)
Turn speed set at 50 percent
Maximum turning speed will be 4.83 km/h (3 mph)
The A-model PrecisionCut™ Mowers, E-Cut™ Hybrid Mowers, and TerrainCut™ Mowers have the latest in advanced diagnostics through the TechControl display. Most all diagnostics are performed while sitting in the operator’s seat.
The TechControl has onboard visual diagnostics allowing quick and easy machine diagnostics, maximizing up time. The system allows technician to see inputs and outputs of the electrical system. Also, the technician can see stored controller codes on the machine to aide in troubleshooting incidents that may have occurred while on the course.
The TechControl will also display the notification for maintenance of the hydraulic and engine oils using service timers to notify when it has reached the time to perform the required service.
Choose from a list of several languages to use for the TechControl.
Operator warning notifications are incorporated into the TechControl and will alert the operator if a problem arises during operation.

The standard GRIP all-wheel drive traction system transfers hydraulic flow from wheels that slip to wheels that grip. For example, if the right front wheel starts to slip, hydraulic flow goes to the left front and rear tires to maintain traction power. This helps provide maximum traction in undulating conditions.
The GRIP all-wheel drive traction system is standard equipment with the 6080A, 6500A, and 6700A PrecisionCut™ and 6080A and 6500A E-Cut™ Hybrid Fairway Mowers and is also engaged at all times, whether in mow or in transport. A check valve in the rear motor puts the machine in two-wheel drive (2WD) in reverse to minimize any potential scuffing.
