They provide enhanced engine performance and improved cut quality to residential mowers who want an optimal landscaping experience.
"Homeowners are attracted to the speed and overall performance of zero-turn radius mowers, but some perceive ZTRs as too expensive," said Kim Ridel, tactical marketing manager for John Deere. "New for 2017, we're introducing five new residential zero-turn models under $3,500.00 providing homeowners with the speed and performance they need, at the attractive price they want."
The mowers come with the Accel Deep™ mower deck, available in 42, 48, and 54-inch cutting widths to suit customer needs. The decks offer better grass dispersion and improved cut quality at faster ground speeds.
The Accel Deep decks are also compatible with the MulchControl™ kit. This kit allows users to quickly switch between side discharge and mulching with a lever. Customers also have the option to use a wider tire on some of the mowers. In turn, they can ensure that they always have a smooth ride while in the operator seat, regardless of terrain conditions.
