ADDITIONAL FEATURES
POWERFUL DIESEL ENGINE DELIVERS SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE & EFFICIENCY
The Z997R is powered by a 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine with a gross 37.4 hp (27.5 kW) that meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Final Tier 4 emission standards. The engine achieves Final Tier 4 compliance by using a diesel oxidation catalyst with diesel particulate filter (DOC/DPF) system.
The three-cylinder diesel engine features low noise levels, superior fuel economy, and a high torque reserve that provides plenty of power and performance.
Economical, cast-in block cylinder design gives good cooling and long life.
Liquid-cooled design provides more consistent operating temperatures than air-cooled.
Direct fuel injection is provided.
Injects fuel directly on top of pistons for more efficient combustion
Develops more horsepower per gallon of fuel
Improves starting
Aluminum alloy pistons with built-in steel struts are lightweight to reduce connection rod bearing loads and provide good heat-transfer characteristics.
Design permits tighter tolerances and neutralizes expansion of the piston, thereby reducing blow-by fuel and noise from the piston slap
Higher top rings on the piston and a thinner head gasket greatly reduce the volume of unburned waste and increase combustion efficiency
Timing gears and injector drive gears utilize helical profile gears to help lower engine noise.
Gear teeth have a newly designed ''roll-off'' profile, giving almost no clash, no noise, and no backlash
Fuel filter with replaceable element is provided.
Full-pressure intake manifold provides quick starts in temperatures down to 0F (-18C).
Auto-bleed fuel system gives extra convenience.
No need to prime the system if the unit runs out of fuel; the system will self-prime the injection pump, lines and injectors, providing fast fuel recovery
Key start and shutoff eliminates fuel shut-off knob; electric solenoid shuts fuel supply off immediately when key is turned off.
See-through coolant recovery tank permits operator to check coolant level without removing radiator cap.
Sealed radiator compartment keeps trash and debris on outside of hood.
Dual-element, dry-type air cleaner with safety element and air service indicator is provided.
Dual-element design for added engine protection
Easy to service
Completely sealed for effective cleaning and 90 to 95 percent of dirt ejected before it reaches the paper element
Secondary safety element for additional filtering
Air-restriction indicator to let operator know when the filter needs servicing
Full-pressure lubrication with full-flow filter lengthens engine life.
Engine wear reduced by ensuring proper lubrication, even when operating on hillsides or uneven terrain
Oil filter helps keep oil clean for increased engine life
Automotive-type alternator (75 amp) provides plenty of charge to the battery.
Rear-mounted, covered radiator and fan keeps noise away from the operator and is easy to service.
Isolated engine mounting reduces engine vibration at operator's station for more comfortable operation.

TWO 7-IRON PRO SIDE-DISCHARGE MOWER DECK OPTIONS FOR THE Z997R GIVE SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN EVERY APPLICATION
There are two side-discharge mower-deck options available for the Z997R Diesel ZTrak Mower:
The 60-in. (152-cm) 7-Iron PRO side-discharge deck is suited to a variety of mowing jobs, including trimming and grooming.
The 72-in. (183-cm) 7-Iron PRO side-discharge deck is suited to a variety of mowing jobs, including trimming and grooming on larger properties.

GREAT PRODUCTIVITY AND LAWN APPEARANCE WITH A FASTBACK PRO REAR-DISCHARGE MOWER DECK
For professional landscapers and government municipalities requiring rear discharge placement of grass and debris, John Deere Fastback PRO rear-discharge mower decks deliver a commercial zero-turn mowing solution for both gas and diesel machines. Advantages of a rear-discharge mower include:
Less chance of damage from objects being thrown from the mower deck
Time savings with the ability to mow closely around fixed objects with either side of the deck
A cleaner mowing experience by lessening the amount of debris that can blow onto the operator

A rear-discharge mower deck is ideally suited for:
Schools
Parks
Playgrounds
Traffic areas (city boulevards, roadsides, etc.)
Areas with long, grassy spots that need to be cut, where you are not as concerned about wide dispersal of grass (park areas, roadsides, etc.)

STANDARD OPERATOR COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE PACKAGE FOR EASE OF USE
Ergonomically designed to give the operator an enjoyable and comfortable ride while increasing productivity.
Commercial cutter can select the ground speed and direction control simply by moving levers forward or in reverse.
Positive neutral lock position for levers provides added safety.
Wide-bend steering levers swing out easily for entry and exit from the operator platform.

DELUXE COMFORT SEAT IS FULLY ADJUSTABLE AND INCLUDES ComfortGlide FORE/AFT SUSPENSION
The deluxe comfort professional-grade seat is included in base equipment. It provides the operator with an enjoyable ride by allowing the operator the ability to adjust the seat to their preference. It includes:
24-in. (60.9-cm) high-back seat
Suspension-reaction dial that adjusts vertical suspension for operator weight and a firm or soft ride
Adjustable armrests
Adjustable back angle
ComfortGlide 2-in. (50.8-mm) fore/aft suspension to absorb bumps
Vibration reduction
3-in. (7.6-cm) fore-aft adjustment while operator is seated
Retractable seatbelt

EASILY ACCESSED DAILY SERVICE POINTS MEAN LESS MAINTENANCE TIME AND MORE WORKING TIME
Service components are easy to see and access
Open engine compartment allows full access to engine components and service points
Engine heat is kept away from the operator
Flip-up seat allows easy access to the hydraulic system
Flip-out floor panel allows easy access to deck spindles

HEAVY-DUTY CHASSIS COMPONENTS PROVIDE STRENGTH AND DURABILITY
Heavy-duty, thick-gauge steel channel mainframe for strength and durability
Cast I-beam caster arms to handle the beating and pounding professional mowers receive
Wide-open access for maintenance and cleaning

QUALITY DRIVE SYSTEM PROVIDES LONGER LIFE & LESS MAINTENANCE
The hydrostatic drive features a Kanzaki DUP 17SB dual-unitized hydraulic pump. This dual pump, in a single housing, provides longer life and less maintenance than competitive units. The pump features a shaft-driven fan for added cooling and longer component life. The swash-plate bearings are roller-type versus ball-type bearings for a longer overall pump life.

MOWER DECK HEIGHT-OF-CUT ADJUSTMENT IS EASY TO USE
No tool required for adjustments
Dial-in knob used in conjunction with push button to change the height of cut
Easy-to-use design for increased productivity by allowing change of cutting height from the seat

MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF AIRLESS RADIAL TIRE TECHNOLOGY OPTION FOR A SMOOTHER RIDE AND MORE UPTIME
Mowing Performance Is Improved.
o Rutting is reduced because the Michelin X Tweel Turf has more support across the surface for improved flotation and better ground contact
o Unique energy transfer within the poly-resin spokes reduces the bounce associated with pneumatic tires
o Excellent curb climbing is possible due to the Michelin X Tweel Turf construction and flexibility
o More consistent cut quality is achieved because inconsistent tire pressure is eliminated

Uptime Is Improved.
o The exclusive technology eliminates downtime and associated cost due to flat or damaged tires
o Punctures and sidewall damage no longer result in downtime

Cost of Operation Is Reduced.
o Cost of repairs and maintenance is reduced. One single unit replaces the current tire, wheel, and valve assembly. There is no need for complex tire-mounting equipment
o No need to spend time checking and optimizing tire pressure
o The need to purchase and stock plug kits and spare tires is eliminated, particularly for professional landscape contractors and government agencies who normally stock them
o The tire tread will last up to three times longer than current pneumatic tires because automotive-grade rubber is used for the tread

PROTECTIVE ZONE AROUND THE OPERATOR IS PROVIDED BY THE ROLLOVER PROTECTIVE STRUCTURE (ROPS)
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
When used with the seatbelt, the ROPS can reduce the severity of injury in the event of a rollover
Use of the seat belt is recommended when operating with ROPS in the upright position
