    8700A PrecisionCut Fairway Mower


    Get the control and the results that you’ve always dreamed of

    Now your presence can be felt on every part of your course. That’s the control you get with the new 8700A PrecisionCut™ Fairway Mower from John Deere. Thanks to our TechControl display, no matter who is operating the mower, you can easily program it to mow and turn at exact speeds – and so much more.


    The 8700A offers several features that separate it from the competition. Like the eHydro™ hydrostatic pump and large capacity motors for serious hill-climbing capabilities. The optional GRIP All-Wheel Drive Traction System provides superior traction by reducing wheel slip. And exclusive LoadMatch lets you cut through wet, lush grass evenly by slowing down the traction speed.


    The 8700A provides an outstanding quality of cut in both warm- and cool-season fairways. And even with a cutting width of 100 in., the 8700A delivers picture-perfect striping with a double-acting, single-rod hydraulic steering cylinder that makes keeping straight lines a breeze and steering effortless.
