JOHN DEERE Z950M - Z900 SERIES COMMERCIAL ZTrak ZERO-TURN MOWERS
Our ZTrak 900 Series zero-turn mowers were designed with our commercial lawn mowing customers in mind. And since you all have different needs, we came up with different ways to help you meet them. The M Series mowers are the mowers that hit the sweet spot of performance and durability. Mulch On Demand option lets you switch instantly from mulching to side-discharging. Expanded height-of-cut range is easy to adjust. And Electronic Fuel Injection models are available, giving you the right amount of fuel at the right time.

EXTRA DURABILITY AND MOWING PERFORMANCE FROM 7-IRON PRO SIDE-DISCHARGE DECKS PRESSED FROM A SINGLE PIECE OF STEEL
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
An anti-skid step on the deck provides easy machine mounting
Extra reliability and long life with cast-iron blade spindle housings
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
Quick-release belt covers do not require tools or the removal of a ring clip; just lift one corner of the cover and rotate it slightly to remove
A hole in the deck tab is provided for use of an optional ring clip for extra security, if desired
This makes it quick and easy for you to clean out trash that may collect around the spindle sheave
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 iron providing both excellent strength and heat dissipation.
The trim edge of the deck is equipped with a bumper that provides great abrasion resistance to protect the machine and the property.
The front edge is raised above the blade plane to allow even cutting of tall grass and is 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. (40.6 mm), nearly 0.79 in. (20 mm) greater than previous decks, to reduce striping between blades.
Quick-change, cutting-height adjustment.
AVAILABLE MULCH ON DEMAND DECK
The Mulch On Demand mower deck delivers unprecedented levels of productivity and versatility to commercial mower operation. With the ability to switch between side discharge and mulching operation with the flip of a lever as the operator mows, keeping most clippings out of landscaping features and where they are wanted is extremely easy.
ENHANCED PRODUCTIVITY, SAFETY, AND TRIM ABILITY WITH A FASTBACK PRO REAR-DISCHARGE MOWER DECK
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

MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF AIRLESS RADIAL TIRE TECHNOLOGY FOR ZTRAK MOWERS ELIMINATES DOWNTIME AND REDUCES COST OF OPERATION
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
MOWER IS EASY TO SERVICE WITH MANY ACCESSIBLE COMPONENTS
The design of the Z900 Series makes many service components reachable and easily accessible from the ground
Large, open engine compartment at the rear of the machine provides convenient servicing and directs engine heat away from the operator
EXTRA RELIABILITY & LONG LIFE WITH CAST-IRON BLADE SPINDLE HOUSINGS
Superior impact strength with ductile cast-iron material
Gusseted design puts reinforcement where it is needed
Strength of cast iron protects against damage from blade impacts
Easy access grease fittings are mounted at the top of the spindle shafts for convenience
Grease pressure-relief valve minimizes seal damage from overfilling with grease and keeps debris from entering housing
Chance of deck shell damage is minimized with the 8-in. (20.3-cm) diameter housing and six mounting bolts that distribute loads and impacts
Ability to be reliably rebuilt is provided by use of cast iron
PROTECTIVE ZONE AROUND THE OPERATOR IS PROVIDED BY THE ROLLOVER PROTECTIVE STRUCTURE (ROPS)
Getting on and off is easy with the flat operator platform
Convenient-to-use controls located close to the operator 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
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
