Professional landscapers continuously look for equipment to help bring more efficiency and productivity to their grounds care operations. Choosing a mower is one the most important business decisions these landscapers can make. John Deere is making the choice a little easier with its latest line of commercial mowers, the ZTrak™ PRO 900 Series and its “Work it for a Week” program.
“The new ZTrak PRO 900s are the most productive, smoothest operating, easiest to use mowers we’ve ever built,” said Chase Tew, John Deere tactical brand manager, commercial mowing. “But we want our customers to discover that firsthand. With ‘Work it for a Week,’ operators can purchase a mower and put it to the test on the toughest terrain they have. If they don’t like the way it runs, rides, cuts or handles, they can return it for exchange or full refund within 10 days of purchase.”
The ZTrak PRO 900s, which will be unveiled at GIE + EXPO, also offer a commercial, two-year bumper-to-bumper warranty with unlimited hours — further proof of John Deere’s confidence in the series, said Tew.
Designed and developed in response to customer input, the seven models in the Z900 lineup feature the legendary, durable 7-Iron™ Pro deck with stamped, seven-gauge steel, full-wrap reinforcement and Mulch-on-Demand™ capabilities. With top mowing speeds of 10.5 or 12 mph, each model has the power and performance operators demand.
For superior controllability, the Z900s include a new, ground-drive transmission featuring a piston motor, internal wet disc brakes and a gear reduction final drive, providing more torque to the drive tires. Users will also appreciate the Comfort & Convenience package with ergonomic control levers including built-in PTO shutoff and electronic deck raise and lower. And for effortless operation, the series offers dial-in height of cut adjustment on the control panel, on-board self-diagnostics, run-flat tires and John Deere’s exclusive Brake & Go system.
“We’re excited for customers to get the Z900s out in the field and put them through their paces,” said Tew. “The 900 series covers more acres faster, offers a higher quality of cut and will help landscape pros increase their uptime. We know they’re going to be as happy with them as we are.”
The Work it for a Week program begins Nov. 1, 2009. To put a ZTrak PRO 900 to work for you, contact your local John Deere dealer.
