Features

Full-time three-wheel drive (3WD) hydrostatic system directs oil flow to wheels with traction, reducing wheel slip in tough terrain
Full-time 3WD systemFull-time 3WD system

The 2653B PrecisionCut™ Trim and Surrounds Mower features a full-time 3WD hydrostatic traction system that directs hydrostatic oil flow to wheels with traction in tough terrain. This means if an operator gets into a situation where one wheel begins to slip, the hydrostatic system supplies fluid to the other two wheels to provide traction power.

This system provides plenty of hill-climbing power without the need for any weight-transfer system. What's even more impressive is this system requires no extra valves for operation. This reduces hydraulic leak point opportunities while still providing ample climbing power.

By being a full-time 3WD system, the unit is always in three-wheel drive, even in transport. The system is powered by the same hydrostatic pump used on the 2500B PrecisionCut Riding Greens Mower for optimum hill-climbing performance.

One-piece plenum design, U-shaped hydraulic reservoir, and other conveniences for ease of service
Service access with plenum raisedService access with plenum raised
U-shaped hydraulic reservoirU-shaped hydraulic reservoir

The 2653B PrecisionCut™ makes a strong statement when it comes to service conveniences.

 

The air plenum and hood are combined into a one-piece design. Simply turn the hood latch and raise the hood to gain service access to the air restriction indicator, engine oil dipstick, backlapping valve, hydraulic components, coolant level fill, and more. All daily service checks are easily accessible.

 

Standard onboard electrical diagnostics are located beneath the access panel just below the operator control panel. This allows for electrical system diagnosis from the seat. Sit-on-seat (SOS) diagnostics are integrated into the electrical system, alerting the operator to potential starting problems.

 

The hydraulic oil cooler can be removed by removing wing nuts. The use of wing nuts makes it possible to service the oil cooler without the use of any tools.

 

A large U-shaped hydraulic tank is easily accessed at the rear of the machine. The reservoir features a convenient fill point on top of the tank and a dipstick for checking the hydraulic fluid level.

 

The 2653B PrecisionCut Trim and Surrounds Mower features improved access to the engine to hydro coupler for fan belt repair. Simply loosen the locking ring and slide the coupler to allow room for fan belt installation.

Sit-on-seat (SOS) diagnostics provide aid when starting machine
Instrument clusterInstrument cluster

SOS diagnostics are provided to assist the operator in getting the machine started. The SOS system checks the machine system functions to be sure they are in the proper configuration for starting.

The system functions that must be satisfied to crank the machine are as follows:

  • Park brake engaged
  • Mow lever disengaged
  • Backlap valve disengaged 
  • Forward/reverse pedals in neutral position
SOS codesSOS codes

The SOS system alerts the operator by flashing a light on the instrument cluster located on the dash of the 2653B PrecisionCut™ if any these conditions are not met.

 

The battery indicator light flashes a code while the key is held in the start position. There is a label located on the white box control module access panel that advises the operator what functions are not set properly based on the code that is flashing. This label is in both English and Spanish.

Durable frame built to handle the toughest terrain
2653B PrecisionCut Trim and Surrounds Mower2653B PrecisionCut Trim and Surrounds Mower

The 2653B PrecisionCut™ Trim and Surrounds Mower can improve the appearance of many areas on the golf course. It can maintain tees, approaches, fairways, green surrounds, first-cut rough, and rough. These tough demands can put a strain on lesser frames, but not that of the 2653B Mower.

 

The 2653B PrecisionCut frame is designed with all these demands in mind and provides excellent weight distribution and the durability required for the most-demanding terrain. The frame design keeps a low center of gravity while providing excellent visibility to the front cutting units and rear of the machine.

Powerful 3-cylinder diesel engine
Three-cylinder diesel engineThree-cylinder diesel engine

The 2653B PrecisionCut™ Trim and Surrounds Mower uses a 19.6 hp* (14.6 kW) gross (per SAEJ 1995 at 3000 rpm) liquid-cooled diesel engine for smooth, efficient, and quiet operation.

 

With the 3-cylinder diesel engine and a large 7.4-U.S. gal. (28.0-L) fuel tank, the 2653B PrecisionCut gives the operator plenty of power and fuel for a productive day of mowing.

 

This engine meets EPA Tier 2 and Tier 4 compliance standards.

Frame design for a wide stance and low center of gravity for excellent stability
Low center of gravityLow center of gravity

A low center of gravity and a wide, 55-in. (140-cm) wheelbase ensure comfortable and safe operation, even in adverse mowing conditions.

 

Wide 20x10-10 front and 20x10-8 rear turf tires provide excellent traction and stability for superior mowing performance.

White box electronic control module provides onboard electrical diagnostics as standard equipment
White box controllerWhite box controller
#

This controller gives the technician on-board diagnostics as standard equipment, meaning there are no diagnostic tools or plug-ins to purchase separately. No tools are required to access the white box controller. Simply disengage the latch to open up the access panel. This allows the technician to troubleshoot electrical problems while sitting in the operator seat.

The controller has a heartbeat feature to aid the technician in diagnostics. When the LED light in the center of the controller is flashing at a regular rate, it indicates the controller is properly powered up and there are no circuit problems. Each switch or solenoid on the machine has its own LED light on the controller. Input and output functions can be diagnosed by observing the appropriate lights.

When the heartbeat LED light is flashing at an irregular rate, it indicates there is a system fault of some sort. The irregular flashing rate leads the technician to the circuit to start proper diagnostics. These codes can be found on the front of the access panel to the controller. Detailed information is located in the operator's manual and technical manual.  

Air-restriction indicator with sight glass visually shows if air restriction is present
Air-restriction indicatorAir-restriction indicator

An air-restriction indicator is standard on the 2653B PrecisionCut™ Trim and Surrounds Mower. The air-restriction indicator has a sight glass with markings that show if service to the air cleaner is required. This air-restriction indicator is the same one used on the 2500B PrecisionCut Diesel Riding Greens Mower.

 

When the sight glass in the air-restriction indicator shows red, a major airflow restriction in the system needs to be addressed immediately.

The FTC for the Quick-Adjust 7 (QA7) cutting unit is gear driven and counter-rotates to the direction of the reel to stand up grass, for a premium quality of cut. 

 

The counter-rotating blades eliminate clumping by recycling grass clippings for a smooth, clean playing surface. They also groom the turf by slicing stolons on lateral growing grasses, stimulating the plants and promoting new vertical growth.

FTC gearcaseFTC gearcase
Clip-mounting systemClip-mounting system

The FTC case is mounted using a simple clip system for quick and easy installation. The gearcase can be used on either side of the cutting unit, meaning the same gearcase is used to drive an FTC driven from the left-hand side of the cutting unit or the right-hand side.

 

When FTCs are installed with rear roller power brushes, the cutting unit is perfectly balanced by the weight of the rear roller power brush housing. The cutting units can also be perfectly balanced due to a weight system that allows use of the proper counterweight based on the cutting unit width if FTCs are installed without rear roller power brushes.

FTC adjuster towerFTC adjuster tower
#

The FTCs can be adjusted quickly by using a 0.63-in. (16-mm) wrench or socket to turn a locknut on top of the FTC tower. Turn the locknut clockwise to raise the FTC and counterclockwise to lower the FTC. Each full turn of the locknut changes the FTC height by 0.010 in. (0.254 mm). The system is spring loaded with the spring pulling the FTC away from the turf for optimum performance. 

FTC on/off leverFTC on/off lever
FTC engagement rampFTC engagement ramp

Due to the gear drive system, the FTC can be turned on or off by rotating a black lever on the side of the gearcase. For times when conditioning the turf is not desired, the FTC can also be moved to a higher height with a T-handle and ramp system.

 

Turn the T-handle up the ramp to raise the FTC and turn down the ramp to lower the FTC into the engaged position. With the FTC in the raised position, a detent at the top of the ramp holds the T-handle and prevents the FTC from moving to the engaged position during use.

 

Without any tools, the FTC can be rotated into the engaged or disengaged position, or the FTC can be turned off or on, providing ultimate flexibility in how the FTC system can be utilized.

(1) QA7 26 In. Rear Roller Power Brush - BM22669
Rear-roller power brush overallRear-roller power brush overall
#

To promote a consistent height of cut, the belt-driven rear-roller power brush prevents debris buildup on the rear roller of the Quick-Adjust 7 (QA7) cutting unit. In some conditions, the rear-roller power brush may also eliminate clumping by evenly distributing grass that may build up on the rear roller. The bristles of the brush are adjusted close to the roller, but do not touch the roller, and rotate when the reel is engaged, deflecting debris off and away from the roller.

Power-brush clip-mounting systemPower-brush clip-mounting system
Belt-drive housingBelt-drive housing

The housing is easily secured to the cutting unit by a clip system. The same clip is used to secure the power-brush housing to the Greens Tender™ conditioner (GTC) gear case if a GTC is installed, or directly to the cutting unit housing if no GTC is installed. The clip system allows a power brush to be installed on the QA7 cutting unit quickly and easily.

 

For quiet and reliable operation, the power brush is driven by a cogged belt system. To prevent water and other debris from entering the housing, the housing is also sealed by a gasket to prevent damage to the belt or bearings. An innovative cam design is used to quickly set proper belt tension, and also allows for quick and easy brush removal.

Power-brush adjusterPower-brush adjuster
#

To aid in speed while adjusting the brush clearance, the system moves in unison with the rear roller so the brush does not have to be readjusted when the height of cut is changed. Only the wear of the bristles over time need to be adjusted; no other adjustment is required.

 

Two 0.63-in. (16-mm) locknuts on each end of the brush system serve as the adjusting point to set the clearance between the brush and rear roller quickly. All it takes is a 0.63-in. (16-mm) wrench or socket to complete the adjustment. Turn the locknuts counter-clockwise to move the brush away from the roller and clockwise to move the brush closer to the roller.
