Exmark recently introduced its first stand-on electric mower–the Vertex V-Series, showcased at Equip Exposition in October. The new machine provides the commercial durability and cut quality landscape maintenance professionals have come to expect from Exmark, in a HyperCell powered electric mower.
According to project manager Jonathan Guarneri, this is a solution for landscapers looking to comply with local regulations, ordinances, or even client preferences for quiet mowing with zero engine exhaust.
HyperCell Power System
Exmark leverages the HyperCell Power System to power the Vertex V-Series mowers. Designed specifically for commercial mower applications, HyperCell batteries are designed to run cooler to provide more runtime and longer service life.
Guarneri says this is Exmark's own proprietary battery system. The Vertex V-Series uses eight HyperCell batteries, with patent-pending management software that optimizes performance for the conditions. It delivers up to seven or eight hours of runtime per charge.
The Vertex V-Series uses commercial high-torque wheel motors working with a planetary transmission to deliver a smooth, responsive feel at the controls and ground speed of up to 10 mph.
Vertex V-Seriesmowers will also feature Horizon360 Connect smart equipment remote software, which provides an app-based connection to the machine for real-time equipment data, battery charge status, and location information.
Available Spring 2023
In 2023, Exmark will offer the Vertex V-Series with a 52-inch Electric Series 4 side-discharge cutting deck.
The high-torque deck motors feature 9-inch diameter cast aluminum spindle housings with blade retainers for maximum commercial durability.
