Smooth and powerful professional grade V-twin engine for performance and long life
23.5 hp (17.5 kW) provides plenty of power.
V-twin, 90-degree cylinder design allows for easy starts, excellent power and performance, and smooth operation.
The large 30.3L capacity fuel tank is easy to fill, and a convenient fuel level gauge is provided.
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 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 and the aluminium spindle housing has 8-in. (20-cm) base for extra strength.
The 230L rear bagger efficiently collects material from a 48-, 54-, or 60-in. (122-, 137-, or 152-cm) Mower Deck.
Operator station is adjustable for superior comfort
The operator station is designed to provide superior operator comfort:
- Adjustable foot platform
- Adjustable seat position, armrests, and suspension to suit any operator
- Adjustable motion-control levers.
Adjustable, mechanical suspension seat for a smooth ride
High-back, 24-in. (61-cm) seat with armrests and 3-in. (7.6-cm) fore-aft adjustment is standard equipment on the Z740R.
An optional padded armrest kit is available as a field-installed attachment.
The mechanical suspension seat can be adjusted for operator weight and ride preference while the operator is seated.
Three-position, adjustable foot platform to accommodate different size operators
An ergonomic design and professional grade components are suitable for a wide variety of operators and conditions. Adjustable features customise the mowing experience for each operator. One of these features is an adjustable foot platform.
The patent-pending, adjustable, three-position toe board allows the operator to quickly adjust the footrest position for greatest comfort, easily and without tools.
Patent pending foot pegs (standard on R Series, optional on E and M Series) provide the operator with different foot placement options.
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.
Four tie-down locations are provided for convenience and safety when trailering the machine.
Controls, including an automatic motion-control lever/parking brake system, are easy to find and use
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 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.
Heavy-duty design delivers strength and durability
A strong, welded steel framewith heavy-duty 3x2in tubing provides solid, reliable support for the machine components and operator.
The large front caster wheels provide a smooth ride and level cut and better performance on slopes, and turn easily on two maintenance-free sealed ball bearings for both the spindles and the wheel axles. They’re designed for a long, trouble free life, and to give smooth turns without damage to the turf.
The large rear tires have high-quality tread and optimum size for superior traction and smooth ride, and the tread pattern is optimised for excellent traction and minimum turf damage. Optional Michelin® X® Tweel Turf airless radial tire technology on the Z740R provides extra reliability and ride quality.
Transmission offers speeds up to 10 mph (16.1 km/h) to maximise 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 16.1km/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.
