The ZTrak™ E Series Mowers are equipped with a side-discharge, 7-Iron II mower deck.

7-Iron II mower decks have demonstrated quality, performance, and durability. They deliver a high quality cut in diverse conditions.

Key features of the 7-Iron II mower deck:

  • Deck is stamped from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) steel to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside, with fewer sharp corners, for reduced material buildup.
    • This design minimizes the number of welds on the deck shell itself.
  • There is an anti-skid pad on the top corner of the trim side of the deck.
  • High blade tip speed - 18,500 fpm (5,638.8 m/min) for more blade cuts per inch mowed.
  • A deep-deck design of 5.5 in. (14 cm) delivers excellent airflow so material can be processed quickly and efficiently.
  • The wide and high discharge opening provides even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.
Mower leading-edge reinforcement Mower leading-edge reinforcement
Double captured anti-scalp wheel Double captured anti-scalp wheel
  • Deck has rectangular leading deck edge reinforcement, and the rounded corners of the stamped deck help distribute impact stress to reduce the potential of damage when the mower contacts trees, rocks, curbs, and other fixed obstacles.
  • Dual-captured anti-scalp wheels on the front of the deck provide flotation over even the toughest terrain. 
  • Three 1-in. (2.54-cm) cold-forged spindles are heat-treated for strength without bulk and are supported by ball bearings, providing reliability and performance; spindle housings are ribbed cast aluminum, providing both excellent strength and heat dissipation.
  • The front edge is raised above the blade plane to allow even cutting of tall grass and is reinforced with a square bar for durability. The front baffle has been designed to better manage airflow and control clippings.
  • Grease fittings on each of the three spindles are accessible from the top.
  • Blade overlap is 1.6 in. (40.6 mm) to reduce striping between blades.
  • Quick-change cutting-height adjustment is available.
7-Iron II mower deck

The Z915E is available with a choice of mower decks:

  • 48 in. (122 cm)
  • 54 in. (137 cm)
  • 60 in. (152 cm)

The Z915E uses a vertical-shaft engine. The power take-off (PTO) clutch is located on the bottom of the engine with the belt extending from the clutch to the mower deck, which is turned on and off by an electromagnetic clutch.

Two-lever hydrostatic control provides the following:

  • The operator can select the ground speed and direction control simply by moving levers forward or reverse.
  • Positive neutral lock position for levers provides added safety.
  • Brake & Go operator-presence system returns levers to the neutral position when the brake pedal is actively engaged. 
  • Starting the machines are as easy as starting a car. It no longer matters if the control levers are extended out or pulled in, as long as the parking brake is engaged. Just turn the key and go.
  • Wide-bend, large-diameter steering levers swing out easily for entry and exit from the operator platform.

The Brake & Go starting system is a John Deere exclusive. This feature makes the starting process on all ZTrak™ mowers easier, while also making it possible to remove two interlock switches from the machine.
 
The Brake & Go starting procedure helps a novice operator look and feel like a professional. To start the machine, the parking brake must be engaged. It does not matter whether the power take-off (PTO) switch is on or off, nor does it matter if the control levers are pulled in or in the out position.
 
As long as the parking brake is engaged, the machine will start. When the parking brake is applied, the control levers cannot be moved to the forward or reverse positions.

Adjustable levers

Mower deck height adjustment knob Mower deck height adjustment knob

An easy-to-use cutting-height lift system allows the operator to adjust the mower deck height with no tools and minimal effort. The easy-to-grip knob allows operators to dial in the desired height of cut (HOC).

Cutting height can be adjusted from approximately 1 in. to 5.5 in. (2.5 cm to 14 cm). Each increment on the knob adjusts the HOC approximately 0.25 in. (0.64 cm). The deck can also be raised and locked in a transport position to provide maximum ground clearance when moving the machine from one area to another.

The transport lock function allows the deck to be returned to the previous HOC after being in the transport position:

  • Use the foot-lift pedal to lift the deck and engage the transport lock.
  • Rotate the knob to adjust from 1 in. to 5.5 in. (2.5 cm to 14 cm) in 0.25-in. (0.64 cm) increments.

This design increases productivity by allowing operators to change the cutting height without having to leave the seat.

Michelin is a world leader in tire manufacturing and technology. This airless radial tire solution is an industry first for John Deere, which provides an additional advantage to John Deere customers.

Advantages of the Michelin X Tweel Turf include:

  • Mowing performance is improved.
    • Rutting is reduced because the Michelin X Tweel Turf has more support across the surface for improved flotation and better ground contact.
    • Unique energy transfer within the poly-resin spokes reduces the bounce associated with pneumatic tires.
    • Excellent curb climbing is possible due to the Michelin X Tweel Turf construction and flexibility.
    • More consistent cut quality is achieved because inconsistent tire pressure is eliminated.
  • Uptime is improved.
    • The exclusive technology eliminates downtime and associated cost due to flat or damaged tires.
    • Punctures and sidewall damage no longer result in downtime.
  • Cost of operation is reduced.
    • Cost of repairs and maintenance is reduced. One single unit replaces the current tire, wheel, and valve assembly. There is no need for complex tire-mounting equipment.
    • No need to spend time checking and optimizing tire pressure.
    • The need to purchase and stock plug kits and spare tires is eliminated, particularly for professional landscape contractors and government agencies who normally stock them.
    • The tire tread will last up to three times longer than current pneumatic tires because automotive-grade rubber is used for the tread.

Heavy-duty construction provides the ultimate in performance and reliable operation:

  • High-strength poly-resin spokes carry the load.
  • Four-hole, heavy-duty steel hub for durability.
  • Deep, open-tread design provides excellent cleaning and traction.
  • Zero degree, high-tensile proprietary carcass provides great lateral stiffness while resisting damage from impact and penetration.

NOTE: In some cases, different size Tweel tires are required depending on the mower deck size.

The hour meter shows the number of hours the machine is run when the key switch is in the on position. It only counts the hours the engine is actually running. Machine diagnostics are the first step of a monitoring system to help operators quickly diagnose common downtime issues. A trouble code light is included on the hour meter.

 

Use of the hour meter and service interval chart helps determine when the machine will need service.

Rollover protective structure (ROPS) enhances operator safety
ROPS up ROPS up
ROPS mid position ROPS mid position
ROPS down position ROPS down position

The ZTrak™ Z900E, M, and R Series Mowers are equipped with a standard two-post folding ROPS and seat belt. The folding ROPS enhances operator safety and provides ample clearance when storing the mower in garages or sheds:

  • ISO21299 certification
  • Foldable

The ROPS system can be repositioned without the use of tools. Under normal operation, the ROPS should be in the up position. If operating in low clearance areas, they can be folded and secured out of the way. The ROPS can also be pinned halfway down to accommodate machines equipped with a material collection system.

Spindle assembly Spindle assembly

On every John Deere ZTrak™ mower deck, there are three 1-in. (2.5-cm) spindles that are cold-forged and heat-treated for strength without bulk. The spindles are supported by precision ball bearings, providing great performance and reliability.
 
The spindle housing is made of aircraft-grade, ribbed cast aluminum on 48-in., 54-in., and 60-in. (122-cm, 137-cm, and 152-cm) decks, including Mulch On Demand™ configurations. This unique casting design embosses reinforcing gussets in the housing, which adds both strength and cooling surface area that stands up to commercial applications.
 
These spindles can be greased from the top and require no disassembly to reach. Grease channels provide lubrication to both bearings.

Mulch Kits

Mulch kit shown on Estate ZTrak™ mower deckMulch kit shown on Estate ZTrak™ mower deck

The mulching attachment allows converting the mowers so they can be used to perform the mulching function (grass or leaves) of this system.

The attachment consists of special mulching blades, mulch baffles to direct the clippings into the blade for recutting, and a discharge closure and hardware. The adjustable baffle can be moved to one of five positions to match conditions using the convenient wing nuts.

 

Operating tips when mulching:
  • Mow when the grass is dry.
  • Observe the one-third rule.
    • No more than one-third of the grass blade should be cut off at one time. This allows more efficient mulching and will promote the continued good health of the grass. If the desired cut height cannot be achieved by cutting off one-third, or there is clumping of the clippings, it may be required to cut higher; wait a day, then lower the mower and make a second pass.
  • Mow at proper intervals - approximately every four days to five days.
  • Always mow with sharp blades.

Z910A precursor to 915E

5/5

Purchased this mowers predecessor in 2010 and just sold it with 840 hours on the meter. In the 10 years of owning it, I only replaced the deck belt once, the tension pulley on the deck, and seat switch. Love the diagnostic code system with the explanation stuck to the machine. It mowed great, never bogged down, and never had a mechanical issue. Once I leveled the deck after first receiving it, I never had to adjust again. It never went back to the dealer. It mowed great in wet grass and dry. Add a grassflap with oregon g6 blades and you have a mulching machine for leaves. Always ran the high lift blades for normal mowing. I always changed the oil, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, and both air filters every 50 hours. Changed the hydraulic fluid every 200 hours. It may be a little overkill, but again, for the price of these machines I will be more than happy to spend an extra few $100 for piece of mine and insurance. I chose the Deere over the competition because of the ability to mow wet grass and the placement and ease of use of the height adjustment dial. No dowel pins to bend over and move. Excellent mower. I only sold it because we moved to a property that is all hill ranging from 5-20 degree slopes. After testing many brands, I purchased an X758.

Well build

5/5

I was raised on John Deere equipment. I do not farm anymore. But i was looking for new mower and had talked with a lot of people about buying a mower. Everyone i talked to said all your paying for is the name. Well i did a lot of shopping a round and did not look at John Deere. But one rainy day i did... and i am so glad i did. I have had mine for 3 years and it is the best mower i have ever bought. Now my neighbors wish they would have bought this mower.

Pros

  • great mower.

Cons

  • i did not buy it sooner.

Best mower I've owned

5/5

Purchased this unit in spring of 2018, although it takes a little time to get used to it and you have to pay attention moreover a standard riding mower, once you get that aside, mowing time is greatly reduced. It's a solid machine, the Kohler engine is very reliable, I have owned two other brand mowers with a Kohler and not once have they given me any problems. As with any machine, regular maintenance and servicing is common sense and doing so will give you years of reliable service.

Pros

  • easy to clean and service

Cons

  • purchase price increased $3000 the following year

Nice mower!

5/5

Other than a bit of rough ride this mower is perfect for my home needs. Mowing 6+ acres the 915e saves me time and produces a beautifully cut lawn. I traded my 800 series in for the 915e and am very satisfied with my trade in deal.

Pros

  • fast dependable quality construction.

Cons

  • rough ride

Deere Should Be Embarrassed to put their name on this

1/5

175 Hours. It's been in the shop multiple times for backfiring. Thank god my dealer keeps working on it under warranty. When that warranty is up I will be dumping this on some other sucker. If you got one that works...awesome. But I would never ever buy a mower with this brand of engine again. So far, ignition coils replaced, they removed the valve covers and found part of the breather reed in there. The most current problem is that it needs a new carb. Really, I've Kawasaki motors last for decades with never even changing a spark plug. All I can say is AVOID this mower at all costs!!!!!

Pros

  • built well

Cons

  • as reliable as a yugo

915e Why did I wait so long?

5/5

I just purchased a 915e from my local John Deere dealer. This is the first zero turn I have owned. I have always used JD riding mowers. While it does take some getting used with the zero turn, mowing time was so much quicker. I asked myself why I have waited so long. The quality of construction is very good. JD has a sale on these 915's and I couldn't pass it up. This mower will last me a long time!

First zero turn I have ever owned and I have to say i will never go back to a regular lawn tractor. This is definitely the best mower I have ever owned, the price and quality are worth it. I would recommend this mower to anyone, it cuts my lawn like a beast. I actually enjoy mowing again!!!

Motor problems after only 41 hours.

1/5

This mower is well designed and cuts great. However, the ride is the worst of any mower I've ever used, but that's not my biggest gripe. The motor on it is just horrible. From day one it would randomly puke a huge cloud of blue smoke on startup. It will literally fill my garage with blue smoke. It doesn't matter how you start it or shut it off either (yes I've read the manual). Then last summer I was mowing along and all of the sudden the engine backfired and began running rough and was suddenly low on power. This was at only 41 hours on it. It spent half the summer going back and forth to be serviced. The fuel pump & spark plugs were replaced. The carb. rebuilt and then replaced. The governor spring was found to be in wrong hole and running 150rmp too slow. Nothing got it running quite right. Then the last 2 mowings of the season it got to where it wouldn't turn over. You would have to turn the motor by hand until it wasn't against the compression. Then it would crank over. The battery tested OK and the starter relay would engage with a strong thud. Not like the weak clicks you'd hear with a dead battery. However, to give it the benefit of the doubt I decided to buy a new battery, but not until the following season. So the first mow of this season I go get a new battery. Lo and behold the starter engaged with a resounding thud, but the motor wouldn't turn over. So I turn the motor over by hand so it's not in the compression stroke and voila, it cranks. I take the battery to be tested and again it tests good. So several mows into the season and it's failing to crank 75% of the time, it still doesn't have the power it had before I started having problems, and it doesn't sound right when it's running. It only has 75 hours on it now and this is just unacceptable out of JD.

Pros

  • cuts well
  • built like a tank

Cons

  • rides very rough
  • motor is unreliable

Solid Mower

5/5

I've owned many mowers over the years and learned the hard way you get what you pay for. Seems most people buy this model because they are in the lawn care business and this is a good heavy duty commercial mower. I am a homeowner that lives on a farm and have quite a bit of property to mow. I'm big on reliability, maintenance, and performance. I will give you my take on all three. Reliability It starts the first crank every time. It probably helps that I treat my gas and also use a Mr. Funnel to strain the gas before it gets poured in the tank. Maintenance I love how the transaxles ARE NOT SEALED!!!! I wish JD would stop sealing all their transaxles. That is the main reason I bought this model is because you can actually service the transaxles without having to drop them out of the unit and split the case. All your typical maintenance items like spark plugs, oil filter, fuel filter, and air filter is easy to get to and maintain. Performance It is easy to operate but you need to be aware that the transaxles are very strong. When you turn it can damage the grass depending on how you run. You can be a little more gentle with the controls and it won't damage the grass near as bad or none at all. If you're moving up from a big box store z-turn then you will want to be extra cautious because this mower is way more powerful than what you're used to. It will pop a nice wheelie if you run it wide open (not recommended). I'm to understand these mowers have a tendency to throw a belt when you mow over limbs bigger than your thumb. Overall, I'm glad I bought this mower. Many people swear by Kawasaki engines over the Kohler. I've had both and my experience is they're about the same. I would not let the fact this has a Kohler engine instead of a Kawasaki sway your decision. Remember, it's all in how you maintain them. Nothing will stand up to abuse and neglect.

Pros

  • serviceable transaxle
  • maintenance friendly
  • reliable
  • cuts very well
  • large fuel tank
  • solid build
  • spindles can be greased

Cons

  • costs
  • tire pressure not set properly from dealer

Awesome Machine

5/5

I have many lawn mowing accounts which required me to purchase a mower that'll withstand the demanding conditions that accompany mowing 20 - 30 jobs a day. My Z915e has performed above expectations - mowing thick, tall grass with ease while providing a clean/professional finish. It's also a tank - very solidly built.

This thing is built like a tank

5/5

We bought a brand new Z915e right out of the crate about 2 or 3 months ago. We have put about 15 hours on it, and it has not missed a beat. We mow grass twice as tall as we did with our old rider, in half the time. When we compare ours to competitive mowers, we agree that this thing is so much heavier built with so much more quality. The things we don't like about it is that the park brake is a little hard to engage/disengage. Don't know if it will correct itself over time or not. Another thing is that there is not enough storage space. We only use the cup holder, but if we did need storage space, we would need more of it. The last thing is that this thing is LOUD. We have Stihl headphones we use, and even with them, it is loud. Other than that this thing is a beast. Wouldn't trade it for any other mower.

Pros

Cons

  • too loud
  • not enough storage space
  • park brake is stiff
  • should come standard with a floor mat
