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.
  • Extra reliability and long life with cast-iron blade spindle housings.
  • 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.
  • Quick-release belt covers do not require tools or the removal of a ring clip; just lift one corner of the cover and rotate it slightly to remove.
    • A hole in the deck tab is provided for use of an optional ring clip for extra security, if desired.
    • This makes it quick and easy for you to clean out trash that may collect around the spindle sheave.
Mower rectangular leading-edge reinforcement Mower rectangular leading-edge reinforcement
Dual-captured anti-scalp wheel Dual-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 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 iron 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.

For professional landscapers and government municipalities requiring rear discharge placement of grass and debris, John Deere Fastback PRO rear-discharge mower decks deliver a commercial zero-turn mowing solution for both gas and diesel machines. Advantages of a rear-discharge mower include:

  • Less chance of damage from objects being thrown from the mower deck
  • Time savings with the ability to mow closely around fixed objects with either side of the deck
  • A cleaner mowing experience by lessening the amount of debris that can blow onto the operator

A rear-discharge mower deck is ideally suited for:

  • Schools
  • Parks
  • Playgrounds
  • Traffic areas (city boulevards, roadsides, etc.)
  • Areas with long, grassy spots that need to be cut, where you are not as concerned about wide dispersal of grass (park areas, roadsides, etc.)*

*NOTE: Operators maintaining turf outside of target areas are encouraged to evaluate rear-discharge dispersion through a cut quality demonstration to ensure satisfaction.

Commercial-quality deck design

A large volume of material can be thoroughly processed with the deep-deck design:

  • Unique baffling system is designed to reduce clumping and windrowing often associated with rear-discharge mowers.
    • Efficiency is enhanced with baffles surrounding each blade to control material as it is moved to the rear.
    • Material exits the deck quickly as the baffles are lower at the rear.
    • Movement of material is controlled to minimize the likelihood that clippings are thrown onto unwanted areas.
  • Less debris gets on the operator as material is directed to the rear and toward the ground.
    • Debris is kept low and directed into the turf by the flexible rear shield.
Level cut
Center deck rollers and left wheel Center deck rollers and left wheel
Right-rear deck wheel Right-rear deck wheel

The deck is suspended from and supported by the machine to provide a level cut. Mower deck wheels and rollers help smooth out the mowing job in uneven conditions and reduce the chance of scalping the lawn:

  • Two wide front rollers at the center of the mower support the deck when necessary to prevent scalping.
  • Wheels at all four corners protect the deck from scalping at the sides of the mower.
  • Continued effectiveness results from wheels and rollers that are double captured for extra strength, which reduces the chance of damage.
  • Height of rollers and wheels is adjustable to suit mowing conditions.
    • Higher setting (shown in images) are used when mowing at lower cut heights and for rougher conditions at all cut heights where you want to reduce the chance of the wheels hitting the ground.
    • Lower settings are used for higher cut heights and for helping to smooth out the mowing job.
  • Mower cut height is adjustable from 1 to 5.5 in. (2.54 to 14 cm) in 0.25-in. (0.64-cm) increments from the machine operator’s station.

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.

Comfort and convenience handles Comfort and convenience handles

The comfort and convenience package combines large, ergonomically angled control levers with specially padded grips to provide unmatched comfort and reduced fatigue:

  • Keeps hands on the control sticks to minimize equipment damage and make them more comfortable over long operating days.

Gotta get one now

5/5

My old cub went down for a couple weeks and I had to borrow the neighbor's Z. The speed and comfort alone cut my time from 1.5h to just under .5. I waited a bit and let the grass get up to 6" in spots. With both bars pushed all the way forward it barely bogged down only twice. (And his isn't injected either) NOW I'm scouring the interwebs for discounts and incentives to get my own. I highly recommend you go out and buy one yesterday!!

Pros

  • hand button to lift deck for obstacles!!
  • high blade speed = great cut when going fast!!
  • shock absorbing seat- required if you wanna go fas
  • durable frame

Cons

  • stiff frame = no give = bumpy ride
  • quite a bit pricier than others with same options/
