652E QuikTrak mower deck 652E QuikTrak mower deck

A well-designed mower deck can make the difference between just getting the job done and getting eye-catching results. The 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) fabricated mower deck delivers a high-quality cut in more diverse conditions to enhance mowing performance.

Key features of the fabricated mower deck include: 

  • The mower deck is manufactured from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) steel.
  • A compact footprint delivers greater maneuverability when working in tight quarters.
  • A deep-deck design delivers excellent airflow so material is processed quickly and efficiently.
  • A powerful vacuum effect is created by the deck's unique air-flow design, which pulls more grass upright so that the blades can cut more evenly.
  • 48-in. to 61-in. (122-cm to 155-cm) decks come standard with an adjustable striping flap to enhance the after-cut appearance.
Flexible mower-discharge deflector Flexible mower-discharge deflector
Large, inset caster wheels Large, inset caster wheels

The wide-discharge opening and raised deflector provide even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.

Caster wheels and anti-scalp rollers contribute to a smooth, even cutting job:

  • Large, flat-free caster wheels carry the mower deck smoothly over the lawn.
  • Caster wheels are recessed to reduce the vehicle footprint and turning radius.
    • With the wheels less exposed, there is less chance they will get snagged by immovable obstacles, thus improving maneuverability and reducing damage.
  • Anti-scalp rollers are double-captured for durability. They enable the deck to float over the ground and provide a smooth, level cut on even the most challenging terrain.
Easy cutting-height adjustment Easy cutting-height adjustment
Easy-to-remove mower deck shields Easy-to-remove mower deck shields

A combination of shims and spacers can be used to set cutting height and level precisely:

  • Gap in spacers allows them to be moved by just lowering the caster wheel; no need to remove it.
  • Larger changes to cutting height can be made by changing the location of the support arm where it bolts to the mower deck.

Mower deck shields are easy to remove, with one knob, for access to the drive belt and other service points.

From the operator's platform to the mower deck, John Deere QuikTrak™ Mowers have a compact and functional design:

  • The compact design allows the QuikTrak to operate in tighter areas that a larger machine cannot. Often, this means the area can be mowed with a QuikTrak so it is not necessary to switch to a walk-behind mower, reducing the time on site.
  • With the compact design of QuikTrak Mowers, less space is required on a truck or trailer - which can mean there is room for an extra mower, resulting in less time on property, saving time and money.

Propane conversion kit on a walk-behind mower Propane conversion kit on a walk-behind mower
Dual propane conversion kit on a QuikTrak mower Dual propane conversion kit on a QuikTrak mower

John Deere provides application-specific Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved field-installed propane conversion kits for specific John Deere commercial walk-behind mowers, QuikTrak mowers, and ZTrak mowers. The conversion kits include all components required to convert the engines to operate on propane fuel. Single-tank or dual-tank brackets (depending on the vehicle) are provided for securely holding the propane tank(s) to the vehicle.

Propane tanks are not included.

An optional altitude kit is required when operating at altitudes above 2000 ft (610 m). The operator’s manual with the propane conversion kit provides further details. Parts must be ordered separately through John Deere Parts.

Propane facts:

  • Propane is flammable and commonly used as a fuel.
  • The molecular formula of propane is C3H8, and it is in the family of liquefied petroleum gases (LP gases). The other LP gases include butane, propylene, butadiene, butylene, isobutylene, and mixtures thereof.
  • Propane is commonly available and has proven to be a dependable, safe, economical, and clean-burning fuel. It can be used as household fuel, industrial fuel, and fuel for internal combustion engines. Propane has been used as a fuel since 1910.
  • At atmospheric pressure, propane boils at -44°F (-42.2°C), meaning it typically exists as a vapor. However, when contained under pressure, such as in a propane cylinder, it can exist as a liquid.
  • Propane is naturally odorless, but includes an additive odorant, usually mercaptan, which gives it a distinct odor.
  • Vapor propane is heavier than air, meaning it will settle in low areas such as along the ground or in drains.

 Advantages of John Deere propane conversion kits include:

  • Reduced fuel costs up to 30 percent depending on fuel prices
  • Lower emissions
  • Reduced fuel-system maintenance
  • Maintains John Deere warranty
  • EPA and CARB certified
  • May qualify for national and state rebate and incentive programs.
