John Deere expands EFI offerings with new Z955R ZTrak mower

John Deere brings to market the new Z955R ZTrak zero-turn mower, adding more fuel efficient options to its expansive commercial mowing product catalog. The Z955R machine is equipped with a proven Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) engine, and is designed to increase fuel efficiency and productivity during long days of work.

“As any commercial landscaper knows, productivity and fuel efficiency are key factors that can impact the profitability of their business,” said Natalie Haller, product manager, John Deere. “With the new Z955R mower, we are delivering another EFI model to our line-up that is designed to withstand the demands of a commercial landscape operation. From a reliable and powerful EFI engine to features that directly address and improve operator comfort, the Z955R machine is a productive solution for any commercial landscaper.”

The Z955R, with a 60-inch side-discharge deck is powered by a 29-HP EFI engine, delivering class-leading performance and efficiency. With this model, John Deere is providing landscape professionals with an EFI engine at a higher horsepower, increasing fuel efficiency and power in varied mowing conditions. The increased horsepower allows the Z955R to quickly tackle common activities, such as material collection, mowing in thick turf conditions and mulching, while the EFI engine increases the overall fuel economy.

Other features on the Z955R model include two seat choices with the comfort-boosting ComfortGlide suspension. With ComfortGlide, the seat can travel up to two inches (5.08 cm) fore and aft, absorbing bumps for a significant enhancement to ride comfort. The fully adjustable seat option features lumbar support, control dial for easy adjustment and seat latch for seat lifting. Standard adjustable foot pegs further maximize operator comfort.

The standard Comfort & Convenience package features padded, ergonomically angled control levers. Electronic controls allow the operator to raise and lower the deck or disengage mower blades at the push of a button. Additionally, the John Deere exclusive Brake-N-Go machine starting system simplifies machine operation, allowing the operator to simply set the parking brake and turn the key to start mowing.

Customers can get a first look at the Z955R machine during the 2019 GIE+EXPO from Oct. 16-18, by visiting John Deere booth #1110.
