John Deere Z950M 72 Deck Ztrak 7-Iron PRO mower decks have demonstrated quality, performance, and durability. It delivers a high quality cut in diverse conditions.



Key features of the John Deere Z950M 72 Deck Ztrak 7-Iron PRO mower deck:

  • Deck is stamped from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) steel to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside, with fewer sharp corners for reduced material buildup.

  • Significantly fewer welds on the deck shell to wear or break- it is stamped from a single sheet of steel rather than multiple fabrications. Anti-skid step on the deck provides for easy machine mounting.

  • Higher blade tip speed than many competitors - 18,500 fpm (5,639 m/min) for more blade cuts per inch mowed.

  • A deep-deck design of 5.5 in. (14 cm) delivers excellent airflow so material can be processed quickly and efficiently.

  • The wider and higher discharge opening provides even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.

Key features of the 7-Iron PRO mower deck:

  • Deck has rectangular leading deck edge reinforcement and the rounded corners of the stamped deck help distribute impact stress to reduce the potential of damage when the mower contacts trees, rocks, curbs, and other fixed obstacles.

  • Dual-captured front and rear anti-scalp wheels provide deck flotation over even the toughest terrain.

  • Three 1-in. (2.5-cm) cold-forged spindles are heat-treated for strength without bulk and are supported by ball bearings, providing reliability and performance; spindle housings are ribbed cast aluminum providing both excellent strength and heat dissipation.

  • The front edge is raised above the blade plane to allow even cutting of tall grass and reinforced with a square bar for durability. The front baffle has been redesigned to better manage airflow and control clippings.

  • Three spindle grease fittings are accessible from the top.

  • Blade overlap is 1.6 in. (40 mm), nearly 0.79 in. (20 mm) greater than previous decks, to reduce striping between blades.

  • Quick-change cutting-height adjustment.


The Z950M  are powered by an air-cooled, vertical shaft engine:

  • 27-hp (20.1-kW) gas engine
