Experienced landscapers understand that there’s more to mowing than simply shortening the blades of grass that cover the property. It’s also about quality, comfort, and efficiency. That’s where John Deere’s ZTrak mowers come into play, fitting these needs for residential mowing and commercial customers alike.
To give landscapers a better understanding of what these mower models have to offer, we’ve broken down the ZTrak options by series, providing a look at some of the key features that each possess.
The Z600 Series is designed to pair power with performance. Edge High-Capacity mower decks (48, 54 and 60-in) offer an extraordinarily quality cut regardless of the conditions and 23-inch tires provide a smooth ride. V-twin engines (24 and 25-hp) propel the mowers up to ground speeds of 9-mph while features like a 21-in high-back seat, controls with thick, padded grips and top-notch shock absorbers allow operators to make effortless turns with comfort. Onboard storage keeps what’s important to operators close to them and a heavy-duty transmission with no external lines keep things running at a relaxed pace. The Z600 Series comes with a 4-year/500-hour bumper-to-bumper warranty.
Easy-to-start, smooth running, 22 (Z425), 24 (Z445 and Z465) and 25-hp (Z435) V-Twin engines are the power behind the 8.5 mph ground speed of the Z400 Series. Heavy-duty integrated transmission partnered with 48, 54 and 62-in mower decks make a great looking yard a natural result. Operators will be comfortable sitting in 15 or 17-in seats, complete with thick cushions and seat suspension and critical maintenance areas are easily accessed to ensure a long machine life. The Z400 Series comes with a 4-year/300-hour bumper-to-bumper warranty.

Large (18-in) rear tires, a 15-in seat with suspension, adjustable control levers and a large foot platform with standard footrests all contribute to a smooth ride.
