Deep deck design
Deep, flat-top deck Deep, flat-top deck
Deep-deck mower design Deep-deck mower design

The mower deck has a deep-deck design:

  • Constructed from heavy, 9-gauge, 0.15-in. (3.8-mm) steel.
    • Minimizes the number of welds required
    • Has a smooth underside for reduced material buildup
  • Deep-deck design delivers excellent airflow, so large volumes of material can be processed quickly and efficiently.
  • A wider and higher discharge opening provides even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.
  • A durable plastic deflector spreads grass clippings evenly across the lawn, is hinged, and can be raised to minimize the storage space required.
  • 1-in. (25.4-mm) cold-forged spindles are heat-treated for strength and are supported by ball bearings.
  • Standard front rollers and two double-captured wheels provide a more even mowing job and reduce the chance of scalping.
    • Adjustable for different mowing heights
  • The front edge is raised above the blade plane to allow for even cutting of tall grass.
  • Blade overlap is greater than many conventional decks for a clean cut.
  • The mower can side-discharge, mulch, or collect material, except a Z740R equipped with Tweel tires is not compatible with a material collection system.
Mower level adjustment Mower level adjustment
  • Deck leveling and rake angle adjustment is provided at all four mower mounting points.
Step weldment
Operator step welded on mower deck Operator step welded on mower deck

A permanent step weldment is located at the left front corner of the mower deck:

  • Encourages proper entry to the operator station
  • Provides a good gripping surface for the operator’s foot
Reinforced leading edge
Reinforced leading edge of mower deck Reinforced leading edge of mower deck
Trim side of mower reinforcement/wear bar Trim side of mower reinforcement/wear bar

Steel reinforcing bars are welded to the front edge and trim side of the mower deck:

  • Strengthens the deck to reduce chance of damage from obstructions
  • Increased material thickness for longer life of the deck
Superior durability is designed in
Deep mower deck spindle pocket Deep mower deck spindle pocket
Flip-up spindle cover Flip-up spindle cover

The deck has deep, strong spindle pockets to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough operation:

  • Ribs formed in the deck shell add strength where it is needed.
  • The aluminum spindle housing has 8-in. (20-cm) base for extra strength.

Flip-up spindle covers make cleaning the spindle area convenient.

Wheels and rollers
Right mower anti-scalp wheel and center rollers Right mower anti-scalp wheel and center rollers
Left mower anti-scalp wheel Left mower anti-scalp wheel

Dual-captured front and side anti-scalp wheels:

  • Give a more even mowing job and reduce the chance of scalping
  • Adjustable for different mowing heights
Optional MulchControl™ attachment

The MulchControl attachment makes mulching more practical for many mowing situations because it not only does an excellent job of mulching but it also allows the mower to be easily converted for times when it is more desirable to side discharge or collect the lawn material.

Advantages of mulching grass clippings include:

  • A beautiful looking lawn
  • Grass clippings not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
  • Less fertilizer use
  • Elimination of the effort needed to dispose of clippings
How MulchControl works
Illustration of MulchControl baffle open Illustration of MulchControl baffle open
Illustration of MulchControl baffle closed Illustration of MulchControl baffle closed

MulchControl is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain:

  • The MulchControl attachment includes baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
    • The left mower blade area is completely enclosed and optimized for mulching and will mulch even when the mower is in the side-discharge mode.
    • Baffles around the center and right blades are optimized for mulching when the discharge baffle is closed.
  • The attachment also includes mulching blades.
Optional 6.5-bu (229-L) ZTrak Z700 Series MCS
6.5-bu (230-L) hopper and included weights (chute, blower and attachment bar sold separately) 6.5-bu (230-L) hopper and included weights (chute, blower and attachment bar sold separately)
6.5-bu (230-L) rear hopper, chute, attachment bar, and blower 6.5-bu (230-L) rear hopper, chute, attachment bar, and blower

The 6.5-bu (230-L) rear bagger efficiently collects material from a 48-, 54-, or 60-in. (122-, 137-, or 152-cm) Mower Deck:

  • Hopper, attachment bar/bumper, Power Flow™ blower, and chute components are ordered separately to make a complete MCS.
  • A weight bracket and four 18-lb (8.2-kg) weights are included for installation on the front of the vehicle to help counterbalance the weight of the hopper. For proper ballast with complete MCS:
    • Four weights are required on a ZTrak Z700 Series equipped with a 48-in. (122-cm) Mower Deck.
    • Three weights are required on a ZTrak Z700 Series equipped with a 54-in. (137-cm) Mower Deck.
    • Two weights are required on a ZTrak Z700 Series equipped with a 60-in. (152-cm) Mower Deck.
MulchControl handle is used to control baffle
MulchControl baffle closed MulchControl baffle closed
MulchControl handle in closed position MulchControl handle in closed position

The MulchControl handle is located on top of the mower deck and used to open and close the discharge baffle:

  • The operator is required to get off of the machine in order to engage or disengage mulch mode.
  • MulchControl is well suited to the following mowing situations:
    • Operators who usually mulch, but side-discharge when grass gets too long
    • Operators who usually side discharge, but would like to be able to close the chute to control clippings
    • Operators who always mulch a main lawn, but often side discharge secondary lawns
    • Operators who bag clippings, but want to go farther before emptying bags

MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings. The operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side-discharge or bagging when needed.

MulchControl limitations

While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl will still mulch about one third of the material. Therefore, the side-discharge mode is essentially a partial-mulch mode. This can be an advantage when side discharging or bagging, as it helps to reduce the amount of material being discharged. Other times this could work as a disadvantage:

  • When cutting strong southern grasses, such as Zoysia and Bermuda
  • When cutting in wet, high-growth conditions, such as those found in the Pacific Northwest United States
  • When optimum bagging and lawn clean-up is desired
Compatibility

MulchControl is a field-installed attachment and compatible with the 48-in. (122-cm), 54-in. (137-cm), and 60-in. (152-cm) HC PRO Mower Decks available for the Z700 Series ZTrak Mowers.

7P Poly Utility Cart7P Poly Utility Cart
#

Every owner of a John riding lawn and garden product is a potential customer for a high-quality, affordable utility cart. Utility carts can be used to haul a variety of materials including firewood, lawn debris, sand, dirt, mulch, garden tools, plants, and bushes.

Utility carts are designed, painted, and decaled to be compatible with other John Deere equipment.

NOTE: For proper braking and operation, the loaded weight of the cart should never exceed the weight of the tractor, or other towing unit, plus the operator. The loaded weight of any equipment towed by an EZtrak™ or ZTrak™ mower should not exceed 250 lb (113.4 kg). See the appropriate vehicle pages for the weight of the vehicle and the mower deck.

7P Poly Utility Cart7P Poly Utility Cart
  • The cart has a premium molded, high-density polyethylene box construction.
  • Compression molding process allows polyethyl­ene to be the optimum thickness in all areas for superior strength and durability.
  • Polyethylene body will not rust or dent; it stays looking new longer.
  • 0.75-in. (2-cm) x 2-in. (5-cm) stake pockets are molded in to make the addition of side extensions easy.
  • Two vertical 0.75-in. (2-cm) molded channels on each side allow easy use of dividers to separate the box into two or three compartments.
  • Ribs in the box bottom add strength and prevent the shovel from hitting bolts when emptying the cart.
  • Sloped tailgate design makes emptying the box easier; there is no tailgate to loosen or remove.
  • Styling is compatible with other John Deere equipment.
  • Pneumatic tires provide turf tread for good flotation, shock absorption, and minimal rolling resistance.

Mcs Chutes

Power Flow chutePower Flow chute
Chute handleChute handle

The Power Flow chute is required, along with the high-performance Power Flow blower, to use the two-bag Power Flow material collection system. The chute includes a convenient handle and a fill indicator that tells the operator when the bags are getting full. A bungee cord holds the chute securely to the Power Flow blower. It permits quick installation and removal of the chute.

Mcs Hoppers

The attachment bar, required for MCS installation, bolts to the ZTrak mower frame to support the hopper.

NOTE: When installing on M and R Series machines, remove the rear hitch from the engine shroud and re-install the hitch onto the attachment bar/bumper.

Front weights installed on a Z735M with a 54-in. (137-cm) Mower DeckFront weights installed on a Z735M with a 54-in. (137-cm) Mower Deck

Four weights are included. For proper ballast with a complete material collection system, the number of weights required to be installed on the machine depends on the mower deck size as follows:

  • 48-in. (122-cm) mower deck requires four weights
  • 54-in. (137-cm) mower deck requires three weights
  • 60-in. (152-cm) mower deck requires two weights  

The appropriate Power Flow™ blower, chute, and attachment bar/bumper are sold separately and are required for installation of a complete material collection system.

6.5-bu (229-L) rear bagger (attachment bar/bumper, chute, and blower must be ordered separately)6.5-bu (229-L) rear bagger (attachment bar/bumper, chute, and blower must be ordered separately)

The 6.5-bu (229-L) rear bagger efficiently collects material from the mower deck:

  • A Power Flow blower (ordered separately) on the end of the mower deck moves material up the chute (ordered separately) and into the hopper.
  • A weight bracket and four 18-lb (8.2-kg) weights are included for installation on the front of the vehicle to help counterbalance the weight of the hopper.

Removing bag from 6.5-bu (229-L) hopperRemoving bag from 6.5-bu (229-L) hopper

The hopper design provides efficient bagging performance, clean operation, and easy-to-empty bags:

  • Two durable bags give a generous 6.5-bu (229-L) capacity.
  • The bags lift out for easy emptying.
  • Efficient chute provides a smooth flow of material to reduce the chance of plugging.
    • The chute and Power Flow blower must be ordered separately.
  • Standard mower blades are used for bagging.
  • Air exhaust duct directs air from the hopper back and toward the ground for clean operation.
  • Convenient latch makes opening and closing the hopper easy.

NOTE: Appropriate Power Flow blower, chute, and attachment bar are required (ordered separately).

Mulch Kits

MulchControl advantages and benefits
ZTrak™ Z730M mowingZTrak™ Z730M mowing

The MulchControl attachment makes mulching more practical for many mowing situations because it not only does an excellent job of mulching but it also allows the mower to be easily converted for times when it is more desirable to side discharge or collect the lawn material. Advantages of mulching grass clippings include:

  • A beautiful looking lawn
  • Grass clippings not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
  • Less fertilizer use
  • Elimination of the effort needed to dispose of clippings
How MulchControl works

MulchControl is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain:

  • The MulchControl attachment includes baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
    • The left mower blade area is completely enclosed and optimized for mulching, thus will mulch even when the mower is in the side-discharge mode.
    • Baffles around the center and right blades are optimized for mulching when the discharge baffle is closed.
MulchControl handle in mulch-off positionMulchControl handle in mulch-off position
MulchControl baffle openMulchControl baffle open
  • The MulchControl handle is located on top of the mower deck and used to open and close the discharge baffle.
    • The operator is required to get off of the machine in order to engage or disengage mulch mode.
  • Changing from mulching to side discharge or vice versa takes only a few seconds.
MulchControl handle in mulch-on positionMulchControl handle in mulch-on position
MulchControl baffle closedMulchControl baffle closed

MulchControl is well-suited to the following mowing situations:

  • Usually mulch, but side discharge when grass gets too long
  • Usually side discharge, but would like to be able to close the chute to control clippings
  • Always mulch a main lawn, but often side discharge secondary lawns
  • Bag clippings, but want to go farther before emptying bags

MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings. The operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side discharge or bagging when needed.

MulchControl limitations

While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl will still mulch about one third of the material. Therefore, the side-discharge mode is essentially a partial-mulch mode. This can be an advantage when side discharging or bagging, as it helps to reduce the amount of material being discharged. Other times this could work as a disadvantage:

  • When cutting strong southern grasses, such as Zoysia and Bermuda
  • When cutting in wet, high-growth conditions, such as those found in the Pacific Northwest United States
  • When optimum bagging and lawn clean-up is desired

i'M LOving it

5/5

Before I bought my Z730M, I was researching every type of zero turn that was out there. I wanted a heavy duty zero turn but did not like the prices of the base commercial and most of the “so called” heavy duty ones, were not truly heavy duty. After much searching, I decided to check out John Deere one last time and came across the Z700 series and was amazed at what I found. I was amazed by the features they offer for the price and thought I have found the one and picked Z730M. I am now over 50 hrs with my Z730M and just in love with this equipment. It does everything that I could ask from a zero turn. After having a few different ones and spending hours on them, you learn what you like and do not like; also what things you would change. I love knowing that I can cut through thick stuff and don't have to worry about going over areas twice and get a nice clean cut. The seat is amazing and love the foot deck lift. I also love not messing with a pin to set my cut height. Another thing that I loved was the 8-gallon fuel tank and having a fuel gauge, I can go all day and not have to worry about filling up. It has plenty of power with the Kawasaki engine and the 54” deck works well in tight areas, but also the open areas. I love that it came with the hitch already but did buy the foot pegs and floor mat for it and do like having those there. Another feature that is important to me, is how simple it is to get to the spindles and clean the deck off. Not having to mess with unscrewing the covers have been a blessing. The oil change was also amazing and enough room to get it done with no problem. The drain hose is perfect length and easy to put the new oil in without a funnel, by just lifting the seat up out of the way. One other thing that was a big factor for me was the warranty. John Deere’s warranty on these zero turns are the best out there in this price and class. Hustler had one zero turn that matched John Deere’s warranty. I am just very happy.

Pros

  • price
  • warranty
  • seat
  • fuel tank and gauge
  • performance
  • steering
  • easy to clean deck

Cons

  • no rear anti-scap wheels
  • no stock floor mat

Product is an excellant mowing machine.

3/5

Purchased a z730m. Specifically wanted the kawasaki engine, and the 60" deck. Have used zero turn mowers in past but never owned one. Decided on this model for the reasons mentioned above. After several times mowing my 4 acres i was very happy with the ease of opetation, but not exactly pleased with cut quality. Reason being there are no rear scalp wheels on the deck. My acreage is by no means a golf course lawn but did not care for the scalp marks. So off to dealer had to order rear scalp wheel kit to install. Personally i feel these should be put on at factory.

Pros

  • a beast of a mower.

Cons

  • no rear scalp wheels on deck

My Z730M

5/5

I recent bought a Z730M with a 60 inch deck. I compared the ZTRAK 700 series mower against various company equivalent models and the JD ZTRAK M-series has everything. I needed speed, strength, durability, and agility with a clean cut. I was reluctant to buy a zero turn due to the cost, but for the value and durability of this mower, it was well worth the wait. It use to take 3 Hours to mow my yard and now I'm down to one. The mower discharges grass material without clumping , the grass is always cut level, the ride is smooth, and I enjoy mowing the yard again.

Pros

  • speed agility smooth durable
  • value and options

Cons

  • rubber molding for deck to protect the paint

If your on the fence...do it!

5/5

I have 4 acres and the Z730M is a perfect fit. Very strong, fast and powerfull. Cut my mowing time down significantly. Our land has small mounds from gophers so can't go full speed (could get bucked off)....however if it was more smooth I would be able to go faster as there is no shortage of horsepower. The adjustable seat & foot area is great to really dial in comfort. The grass height knob is easy to use and can adjust on the fly. Easy to operate and fun! Highly recommended unit.

Pros

  • comfortable & powerfull
  • fast

Cons

  • when mowing in the wind goggles are a must.

Commercial features without the commercial price tag

5/5

This mower is great for the person only mowing their yard and looking for a heavier built mower than the Z5 line up. I purchased mine with the 60” to replace a tired 757, and this mower did not disappoint. The Kawasaki engine is great, the seat is very comfortable, and I like the serviceable tranmissions with filters. All and all I’m extremely pleased with this mowe.

Commercial Quality at a Cheap Price

5/5

I got the Z730M last weekend, and spent 5 hours on it. Well built, engineered well, and thick steel. The 60" deck chews through the grass & shreds it. 24hp Kawasaki provided plenty of power. Comfort Glide Seat is Amazing! My old machine was a 1445 72" Diesel....I think the Z730M does the job quicker. Deere will sell a ton of these!

Pros

  • comfort glide seat

Cons

  • carb motor
