A Look at the 2017 John Deere Z300 Series Models and Features

January 2, 2017

As the calendar turns to 2017, John Deere has unveiled five new models that will be added to its ZTrak™ zero-turn radius Z300 mower series. The Z335M, Z345M, Z345R, Z355R and Z375R models are each designed to mow with high efficiency at fast speeds, so landscapers can get more done in less time.

While each model is slightly different from the next, the series offers a number of shared features. Let’s take a closer look.

Accel Deep™ Mower Deck

Accel Deep was introduced back in 2016 and it will be included on all John Deere Z300 Series models moving forward. Accel Deep decks are available in 42-, 48- and 54-inch cutting widths, offering mower operators a cleaner cut with better grass dispersion at higher speeds. Joined with a 7 mph mowing speed, the Z300 Series is ideal for those that need to get jobs done quickly without sacrificing quality.

Comfort and Convenience

Many of the 2017 updates to the ZTrak mowers focus on improving convenience and comfort for homeowners. Each model now includes a medium back seat that can be adjusted without the use of tools. The seats also include armrests for added comfort. Updated control levers offer improved functionality and standard floor mats absorb vibration and keep the equipment clean of debris. Wider tire options on some of the models provide a smoother ride, which can be extremely valuable for long days on the job.

Engine Performance

Engine horsepower on the new 2017 John Deere Z300 Series mowers ranges from the Z335E’s 20 hp all the way up to the 25-hp Z375R model. Those looking to purchase one of these models should identify how much power they will most commonly need to get the job done.
