Z655 EZtrak Mower

The new Z645 and Z655 provide commercial-grade construction and durability, for use in residential mowing applications.

CARY, North Carolina (February 1, 2011) – John Deere announces two new mowers to the EZtrak line-up. The Z645 and Z655 will provide homeowners with the fastest ground speed in the homeowner market, the highest horsepower available in a residential zero-turn mower, and an exclusive, high-capacity mowing deck. The Z600s will also offer a 4-year/500-hour, bumper-to-bumper warranty.

"Our EZtrak mowers have consistently provided superior cut quality, and now with the new Z600s, customers can mow more in even less time with our exclusive high-capacity deck, and top speeds of 9 MPH," says Kim Ridel, John Deere tactical marketing manager.

The new Z645 and Z655 provide commercial-grade construction and durability, for use in residential mowing applications. Both models feature a 27-hp John Deere 5 Step Cyclonic engine, which has been specially designed for the unique challenges of zero-turn mowing. The engine enhances airflow to run cooler and features a heavy duty starter, oil cooler, commercial grade seals and dual-barrel carburetor.

Both the 48" and 54" High-capacity decks are stamped from 9-gauge steel for maximum durability, and provide double-captured gauge wheels, a reinforcement bar, and commercial-grade spindles for a long cutting life. The deep shell of the deck allows for enhanced airflow for greater clipping throughput and the smooth underside of the deck minimizes material build-up.

In addition, the Z600 Series offers adjustable handles, convenient controls, on-board tracking adjustment tool, and a flip-up foot platform for easy cleaning and service.

"The new Z600 Series mowers will let homeowners mow like the pros and get superior cut quality in their own yard," says Ridel, "All with the added confidence of a 4-year/500-hour bumper-to-bumper warranty."
