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

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

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.

Z740R with flat-free rear tires Z740R with flat-free rear tires

NOTE: Michelin X Tweel tires are available only in the 24x12N12 size for Z740R Mowers equipped with a 54-in. (137-cm) or 60-in. (152-cm) Mower Deck.

Michelin is a world leader in tire manufacturing and technology. This airless radial tire solution gives additional advantages.

Advantages of using the Michelin X Tweel Turf tires include:

  • More comfortable ride because of less bounce.
  • 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.
    • 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 easily bolts onto a Z740R equipped with a 54-in. (137-cm) or 60-in. (152-cm) Mower Deck and 24x12-12 tires.
    • Michelin X Tweel tires are not available for machines with a 48-in. (122-cm) Mower Deck.
  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Very pleased with my purchase

5/5

Since purchasing this new model zero-turn from John Deere, I've been high pleased with the 740R. We mow about 4 1/2 acres of rolling, hillside lawn with numerous outcrops of rocks. The 54" deck was a good choice for this environment and the mower is as stable as I had hoped it would be. The quality of the machine is very good and I fully expect to get 15-20 years of service from this mower. I did the first (break-in) oil change today and did not even need a wrench. The engineering that went into the 740R is well-thought-out and owner-friendly. I especially like the heavy-duty spindles and easy to grease zerk fittings. The flip-up spindle covers and foot-rest deck make it super easy to blow out grass debris at the end of mowing. The engine is powerful, easy to crank, and well-built. I really like the deck, which is built like a battleship. It mows level and thoroughly. My favorite thing about this mower, however, is the heavy-duty suspension seat (adjustable to your specific weight). The engineers were "spot-on" when they designed this seat. The 740R is comfortable, solid, reliable (so far), and I'm glad I bought it.

Pros

  • ride comfort
  • heavy duty "pro" deck features
  • ease of maintenance

Cons

  • none so far

Z740R is a game changer

5/5

My old John Deere rider was 24 years before I retired it to get a new one with a bigger deck to handle the 3 acres we moved to. The Z740R was quick to hit the top of my list. I upgraded to the Tweels, which was a great choice, and added the LED light kit which puts out as much light as my F250. I've mowed 3 times in the last 10 days with the new JD and all I can say is it's a fantastic machine. The Kawasaki engine is a great match with more than enough power to move the mower at a quick pace & drive the deck with power to spare. My first mowing was a thick, 10" inch high, post rain growth and it handled it with ease. It's fast, easy to operate, and built tough...plenty tough for my property and my needs. The deck height adjust system is a dial that's easy to get to without having to bend over like the other brands require with the peg in a hole system. And the build quality looks like it will last forever. The seat is awesome. For the first time in years I don't feel beat up when I'm finished mowing and can actually walk upright to the house after putting the rig away in the workshop. Instead of the usual 3.5 hours, it's now taking me 1 hr 15 min to mow! And this time of year the bahiagrass is growing so fast I'm mowing every 4 days so the time saved adds up. From checking the fuel gauge it's looking like I'm using approx a gallon per hour so that should give me at least 6 mows per tank, maybe a bit more. The Z740R is a new model for 2019 and It definitely fills the gap between the smaller machines and the larger 900 series zero turns, and meets the needs of an acreage mower without having to go full on commercial and spend another $5 grand or more. The Z740R is well thought out, well designed, well engineered, and IMHO another great John Deere product. If your comparison shopping, cut to the chase and just get one. You'll thank me later. And definitely get the Tweels & LED light kit!

Pros

  • well built
  • well laid out controls
  • fast & powerful

Cons

  • not a one!

Fantastic mower ! ! !

5/5

Easy handling, kick butt speed, comfortable, non-bone jarring seat. It cut my mowing time from 4+ hours to 1.5 hours with the ability to get around all the obstacles in our 5 acre yard. It handled the tall grass with ease at higher speeds than our yellow mower (not sure if name brands are allowed) could handle when it was new at much slower speeds. Right now, I am one happy customer.

Pros

  • speed
  • agility
  • power
  • sturdy
  • fairly easy on gas

Cons

  • it's going to spoil me.
