Models in John Deere’s Ztrak Series zero-turn lawnmower range feature several enhancements for 2016, including new mower decks, a new numbering system and new styling, similar to the company’s commercial models. The updates make these machines even more versatile and easy to operate.
Ztrak mowers deliver on-the-spot turning, using easy to operate control levers. This means there is no obstacle this machine cannot easily and efficiently manoeuvre around, saving you time and effort. With a choice of 107 and 122cm (42 and 48in) cutting widths, the all-new Accel Deep mower decks provide higher levels of cut quality and finish, as well as greater productivity, durability and versatility.
The deep, flat-top deck allows a clean flow of grass clippings from the large discharge opening. Minimal re-cutting improves the mower’s capacity and available power, enabling the machine to maintain high performance even in difficult mowing conditions and at greater speeds.
Thanks to its smooth contours, the deck stays cleaner in work and is also easier to clean when servicing, as there is less build-up of re-cut material. The deck’s heavy-duty, durable design ensures many hours of trouble-free operation. It features twin mower wheels for greater strength and low-tension belt drives, which reduce loads on the engine and mower bearings.
The MulchControl attachment (optional on certain decks) provides superior mulching performance and versatility. Changing from side discharge to mulching or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever.
Alongside these new features, the latest Ztrak Series models come with additional storage space and two cup holders, while the control panel has been relocated from the left to the right hand side of the machine for more intuitive access. Other enhancements for 2016 include increased fore and aft seat adjustment, an improved handbrake and a 30 per cent increase in fuel tank capacity from 13 to 17 litres.
Prices of the new John Deere Ztrak Series zero-turn mowers for 2016 start at £4075 including VAT.
