Power take-off (PTO) control (yellow)
Light switch
Space for an additional electric control switch
Engine speed controls (orange)

The Z545R engine is equipped with electronic fuel injection (EFI) and electronic throttle control (ETC) that permit simplified electronic control of engine speed and power for optimum performance in varying conditions:
MAX full power and performance for the toughest mowing conditions, such as longer, thicker grass
ECO fuel saving setting for easier mowing conditions, such as shorter or dryer grass
MIN engine idle speed for transport, loading/unloading, etc.

SUPERIOR DURABILITY AND PRODUCTIVITY FROM FLAT-TOP DESIGN OF 9-GAUGE, 0.15-IN. (3.8-MM) HIGH CAPACITY MOWER DECKS
High Capacity Mower Decks are a heavy-duty, 9-gauge, 0.15-in. (3.8-mm), stamped-steel, deep, flat-top design that delivers excellent cut quality, productivity, cleanliness, durability, and versatility. Experience optimal performance and dispersion of clippings, even at faster mowing speeds:
Deep-deck design throughout the entire deck shell provides optimum mowing, mulching, and bagging performance. Optional MulchControl attachment provides superior mulching performance and versatility (not available on 48HC decks).
Stamped-steel design eliminates sharp edges and corners where material can build up and diminish mowing performance.
Mower deck is suspended from the vehicle for a smooth and level cut. Adjustable mower wheels positioned just above ground level help smooth out the mowing job.

Z530R and Z545R ZTrak Mowers are equipped with a 48-in. (122-cm), 54-in. (137-cm), or 60-in. (152-cm) High Capacity Mower Deck.

QUICK STARTS AND TOP PERFORMANCE FROM 44.2-CU IN. (724-CC) V-TWIN ENGINE WITH ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION (EFI) AND ELECTRONIC THROTTLE CONTROL (ETC)
The Z545R engine includes EFI and ETC features for superior performance:
EFI meters the correct amount of fuel directly into each engine cylinder for all operating conditions.
1. Simplifies engine starts and warm-up by eliminating the need for the operator to use a choke. Fast, reliable starts are routine just like with a modern automobile.
2. Fuel usage is reduced up to 20 percent compared to a carbureted engine.
3. No adjustments are needed at altitude
4. No choke-related problems since the choke is eliminated
5. Reduced maintenance expense because of fewer complaints related to hard starting, vapor lock, misfire, run-on, or fouled spark plugs
ETC works in conjunction with EFI to electronically adjust the supply of fuel air mixture.
Increases torque as needed to maintain engine operating speed under load.
Ground speed and mower blade-tip speed remain constant, even in heavy-grass conditions, to improve productivity and cut quality.
Mechanical governors cannot respond fast enough to maintain a constant engine speed.
Some torque rise remains to warn the operator before the engine stalls.

Large 44.2-cu in. (724-cc) displacement for torque to pull through tough operating conditions.
Easy inspection and removal of any debris that may have collected using two large cleanout ports that are integrated into the engine shroud over the cylinder heads.
Engine service times, reliability, and life are increased with the use of premium engine oil and air filtering systems, as well as the cooling design.

25 hp (18.6 kW) at 3500 rpm for excellent performance
Greater torque, lower vibration, and improved sound quality from the V-twin cylinder design
Fast starts with electronic ignition
Long engine life with cast-iron cylinder liners
Excellent power and fuel economy with overhead valves
Reliable operation with in-line fuel filter

PROTECTIVE ZONE AROUND THE OPERATOR IS PROVIDED BY THE ROLLOVER PROTECTIVE STRUCTURE (ROPS)
The spacious operator station has been designed for comfort, visibility, and ease of use:
Getting on and off easy with the flat operator platform.
Convenient-to-use controls are located close to the operator.
Operator controls are color coded and designed for easy identification and operation.

The ROPS and seat belt work in conjunction to provide a protective zone around the operator:
It reduces the operators risk of being crushed under the vehicle should it overturn.
In most situations, the ROPS limits the overturn to little more than 90 degrees.
When used with a seatbelt, the ROPS is very effective in preventing deaths and serious injuries. Use of the seat belt is recommended when operating with ROPS in the upright position.

GREAT LOOKS, RELIABILITY, AND PERFORMANCE DELIVERED BY A HEAVY-DUTY DESIGN WITH EXTRA APPEARANCE FEATURES
Green seat accents and the John Deere logo visually communicate a premium offering and give a distinctive appearance.
Green painted motion-control levers (versus black on the Z515E) blend with seat design
Premium motion-control levers have additional material and bends to enhance steering comfort and control.
Green fender trim adds style and keeps the machine cleaner by blocking some of the material thrown by the tire.
Rear wheel rims have an automotive look for overall enhanced machine appearance.

The attractive design includes a provision for light-emitting diode (LED) lighting:
Two front lights face forward for front visibility.
Side lights are positioned to provide excellent visibility of the mower deck.

NOTE: Lights are standard on the Z530R and Z545R and optional on the Z515E and Z530M.

MAXIMIZE MOWING EFFICIENCY WITH DUAL TRANSMISSIONS THAT OFFER MOWING SPEEDS UP TO 8 MPH (12.9 KM/H)
Dual unitized transmissions efficiently power the ZTrak mower forward and reverse and provide steering capability:
Experience excellent hillside stability with transmissions that are set low in the vehicle.
Tuff Torq TZT7-D transmissions are reliable and durable. Beefed-up 1-in. (2.5-cm) axles for greater strength
Maintenance-free, unitized transmissions are sealed and have no hose connections to leak hydraulic fluid.
Four-bolt hubs provide a reliable and convenient wheel-mounting system.

Convenient machine service includes 4-year bumper-to-bumper warranty
