At GIE+Expo, John Deere celebrated 25 years of manufacturing its ZTrak commercial zero-turn mower lineup, commemorating a history of innovation that started in 1997 with the launch of the F620 and F680 zero-turn mowers. The brand continues to build on its commitment to effective and efficient commercial landscaping offerings with the recent launch of the Fastback Pro rear-discharge mower deck, offering time-saving solutions for professional landscapers.
“Ever since the first ZTrak zero-turn mower, Deere has kept the pedal down in terms of product improvements. For us, there’s always an improved model or attachment around the corner,” says Nick Minas, go-to-market manager, John Deere. “This anniversary celebrates 25 years of providing value and innovative products to our customers. We are excited to continue developing and designing the most effective equipment solutions for years to come.”
To commemorate the anniversary of the ZTrak, John Deere featured a 25th anniversary unit front and center at GIE+Expo, with a special decal included on all MY2022 ZTrak Z900 Series units to highlight this tremendous milestone.
