The ZTrak™ M and R Series Mowers are equipped with either a side-discharge or Mulch On Demand™ 7-Iron PRO deck.

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

Key features of the 7-Iron PRO 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.
  • Significantly fewer welds on the deck shell to wear or break - it is stamped from a single sheet of steel rather than multiple fabrications. An anti-skid step on the deck provides easy machine mounting.
  • Higher blade tip speed than many competitors - 18,500 fpm (5,639 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 wider and higher discharge opening provides even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.
Mower rectangular leading-edge reinforcement Mower rectangular leading-edge reinforcement
Dual-captured anti-scalp wheel Dual-captured anti-scalp wheel

Key features of the 7-Iron PRO mower deck:

  • 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 front and rear anti-scalp wheels provide deck flotation over even the toughest terrain.
  • Three 1-in. (2.5-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 redesigned to better manage airflow and control clippings.
  • Three spindle grease fittings are accessible from the top.
  • Blade overlap is 1.6 in. (40.6 mm), nearly 0.79 in. (20 mm) greater than previous decks, to reduce striping between blades.
  • Quick-change, cutting-height adjustment.

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 is 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.

    • 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.

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 kitMulch kit
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.

Fantastic mower

5/5

I had a Z925EFI, and 930, and this 955EFI. I always wanted fuel injection, so I bought this as the largest injected model. This thing uses I am guessing 30% less fuel than the same size carburated engine. Starts easy too. No choke issues in case my wife or daughter want to mow. The 930 carb ebngine I had for a while as a loaner test drive model used so much more fuel to do the same size yard. Starts perfect, runs great. I highly recommend. If they had a larger injected engine mode, I would have bought that.

Pros

  • low fuel usage

Cons

  • still can get bogged down in tall grass.
