Early last month, Van Wall delivered a new John Deere 2500-E Hybrid greens mower for the ISU Horticulture Research Station to use for the upcoming season. So far, we have seen up to 30% in fuel savings while never having the risk of having a hydraulic leak. The hybrid model can be operated at lower RPM's allowing for a more quiet and comfortable operation.
The new mower will be used to maintain turf plots as well as a teaching aid for students. This allows Iowa State to educate students on the newest technology in turfgrass equipment.
The turfgrass research at the ISU Horticulture Research Station is grateful for this generous donation from John Deere and Van Wall and a special thanks to Joe Blaker at Van Wall for making all of the arrangements.
