Smooth and powerful V-twin engine for performance and long life
provides plenty of power and excellent torque. The V-twin, 90-degree cylinder design allows for easy starts, excellent power and performance, and smooth operation.
The full-pressure lubrication system provides plenty of oil to the engine’s moving parts to ensure reliable operation and long life, and a replaceable oil filter keeps the oil cleaner for a longer engine life and extends the time between oil changes.
A rotating metal grass chopper screen helps keep the engine fins clean by filtering out debris and reducing the size of material that gets through so it will pass harmlessly past the engine fins. The guard keeps out large pieces of debris and provides protection from the rotating fan.
High-capacity (HC) PRO Mower Decks offer superior cut quality and versatility
The mower deck has a deep-deck design, constructed from heavy, 9-gauge, 0.15-in. (3.8-mm) steel. The design delivers excellent airflow, so large volumes of material can be processed quickly and efficiently, and the smooth underside reduces material buildup.
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.
The 230L rear bagger efficiently collects material from a 48-, 54-, or 60-in. (122-, 137-, or 152-cm) Mower Deck. A hopper, attachment bar/bumper, Power Flow™ blower, and chute components are ordered separately to make a complete MCS.
Operator station is adjustable for superior comfort
A deep, padded seat combined with adjustable armrests, adjustable fore/aft position, and adjustable suspension springs optimises comfort for the operator. Two steel springs under the seat absorb shocks when traveling over rough areas to provide a smoother ride, and four seat spring positions adjust for operator weight and preference.
Adjustable steering levers are shaped for operator comfort and ease of controlling vehicle speed and direction. The steering levers offer 18 different positions to accommodate operator preference for hand placement and leg clearance.
High-quality seat with adjustable armrests and springs for extra comfort
The seat is securely held down, but easy to raise when necessary.
Three-position, adjustable foot platform to accommodate different size operators
The patent-pending, adjustable, three-position toe board allows the operator to quickly adjust the footrest position for greatest comfort, easily and without tools.
Serviceability is designed-in for convenience
Exclusive, 4-year, single-source, bumper-to-bumper warranty is included for all John Deere Z700 Series ZTrak mowers. The warranty places John Deere at the forefront of the mowing industry. It is hassle free, with one company handling all of the paperwork.
The engines are easy to service, including changing the oil and the oil filter and servicing the air filter. The engine oil check/fill tube is located at the top of the engine and easy to see and reach, and the no-tools oil drain is convenient to use. A flexible oil drain tube is included to conveniently drain oil into a pan, thus eliminating oil spills.
Engine air filters are at the top of the engine for easy service.
Controls, including an automatic motion-control lever/parking brake system, are easy to find and use
Adjustable steering levers
Motion control levers are shaped and located for operator comfort and ease of control. The motion-control levers can be adjusted to two different height settings and nine different fore-aft settings for increased comfort and more precise control of the machine.
Mower deck lift/cut-height adjustment
Mower deck cutting height adjusts from 1.5 in. (3.8 cm) to 5 in. (12.7 cm) in 0.25-in. (0.64-cm) increments for excellent cut quality and performance.
Safety interlock system
Safety interlocks help prevent operating in an unsafe way.
Heavy-duty design delivers strength and durability
A strong, welded steel frame provides solid, reliable support for the machine components and operator.
Large front caster wheels provide a smooth ride and level cut:
- A large surface area helps to provide a smooth ride for the operator.
- Caster wheels turn easily on two maintenance-free sealed ball bearings for both the spindles and the wheel axles.
Rear tyres have high-quality tread and optimum size for superior traction and smooth ride.
Transmission offers speeds up to 8 mph (12.8 km/h) to maximize mowing efficiency
Dual transmissions efficiently power the ZTrak™ mower forward and reverse and give steering capability. The unitized hydrostatic drive features a hydraulic pump combined with a heavy-duty wheel motor into a single unit, and provides speeds of up to 12.8km/h.
Transmissions are set low in the vehicle for excellent hillside stability, and the heavy-duty components stand up to the higher loads from the larger tires and greater weight of Z700 Series ZTrak Mowers. Low maintenance, unitised transmissions are sealed and have no hose connections to leak hydraulic fluid.
There are durable 1-in. (2.54-cm) axles for heavy loads, standard shock valves for added system protection, and a standard charge pump for increased performance.
