John Deere Z Trak Track Pro 900 Commercial Mower Review

John Deere Z Trak Track Pro 900 – Price $7,500

John Deere has recently introduced the Z Trak Pro Series 900 Zero Turn radius commercial mower.  This line replaced the 800 series and features a multitude of improvements.   A Z Trak Mower will run you about $7,500.  The Z Trak 900 series was designed and developed using real customer input. The seven models reflect this. The Z Trak 900 mowers feature the legendary, durable 7-Iron™ Pro deck with stamped, seven-gauge steel, full-wrap reinforcement and Mulch-on-Demand™ capabilities. High top mowing speeds of 10.5 –  12 mph mean more productivity and more earnings per  hour.  All the Z Track Pro models have the power and performance that commercial lawn companies demand.

Here are a few more features.

  • Ground-drive transmission featuring a piston motor, internal wet disc brakes and a gear reduction final drive, providing more torque to the drive tires.
  • Comfort and convenience package with ergonomic control levers including built-in PTO shutoff and electronic deck raise and lower.
  • 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.
