Exmark electrifies stand-on mower market with Vertex V-Series
Exmark introduced its first stand-on electric mower – the Vertex V-Series. The new machine provides commercial durability and professional cut quality in a HyperCell-powered electric mower.
Exmark Director of Marketing, Jamie Briggs, said the new machine is a natural evolution for the company, especially as more and more contractors look to electric equipment for a competitive edge.
“We built the Vertex V-Series for contractors, municipalities and schools looking for the next generation of zero engine emission mowers,” Briggs said. “It is a highly productive solution for anyone that needs to comply with local regulations, ordinances, or preferences for quiet mowing solutions and zero engine exhaust.”
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. The Vertex V-Series uses eight HyperCell batteries, with patent-pending management software that optimizes performance for the conditions and delivers up to 7 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.
In addition to delivering incredible power and torque in use, the electric powertrain also eliminates service and maintenance typically associated with gasoline engines, including oil and filter changes. The use of electric spindle motors also makes belt maintenance and replacement a thing of the past.
This reduction in maintenance time and cost, when combined with the dramatic savings in fuel costs, makes Vertex V-Series a cost-efficient choice for contractors looking to minimize the total cost of ownership of their machines.
Vertex V-Series mowers feature Horizon360 Connect smart equipment remote software, which provides app-based connection to the machine for real time equipment data, battery charge status and location information.
For 2023, Exmark will offer the Vertex V-Series with a 52-inch Electric Series 4 side-discharge cutting deck. Fabricated and welded from high-strength steel to deliver Exmark’s signature quality of cut. The high-torque deck motors feature a 9-inch diameter cast aluminum spindle housings with blade retainers for maximum commercial durability.
