    Lever position closedLever position closed

    Key features of the 7Iron PRO Mulch On Demand mower deck:

    • Deck can be converted from a wide-open side discharge mode to a fully chambered mulching mode with a single move of a lever. NOTE: Mulch On Demand decks are a balance between a side discharge deck and a side discharge deck with a mulching kit.
    • Deck is stamped from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) steel to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside, with fewer sharp corners, for reduced material buildup.
    • Significantly fewer welds on the deck shell to wear or break- it is stamped from a single sheet of steel rather than multiple fabrications. Anti-skid step on the deck provides for easy machine mounting.
    • Mulch On Demand decks are superior to aftermarket chute blockers due to the movable baffles.
    • Higher blade tip speed than many competitors - 18,500 fpm (5,639 m/min) for more blade cuts per inch mowed.
    • Rounded corners of the stamped deck help distribute impact stress to reduce the potential of damage when the mower contacts trees, rocks, curbs, and other fixed obstacles.
    • Deep-deck design of 5.5 in. (14 cm) delivers excellent airflow so material can be processed quickly and efficiently.
    • Wider and higher discharge opening provides even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.
    • Three 1-in. (2.5 cm) cold-forged spindles are heat-treated for strength without bulk and are supported by ball bearings, providing reliability and performance; spindle housings are ribbed cast aluminum providing both excellent strength and heat dissipation.
    • The front edge is raised above the blade plane to allow even cutting of tall grass and reinforced with a square bar for durability. The front baffle has been redesigned to better manage airflow and control clippings.
    • Dual-captured anti-scalp wheels provide deck flotation over even the toughest terrain.
    • Three greasable spindle zerks accessible from the top.
    • Blade overlap is 1.6 in. (40 mm), nearly 0.79 in. (20 mm) greater than previous decks, to reduce striping between blades.
    • Quick-change, cutting-height adjustment.

    John Deere provides application-specific Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved field-installed propane conversion kits for specific John Deere Commercial Walk-Behind Mowers, QuikTrak Mowers, and ZTrak Mowers. The conversion kits include all components required to convert the engines to operate on propane fuel. Single-tank or dual-tank brackets (depending on the vehicle) are provided for securely holding the propane tank(s) to the vehicle.

    Propane tanks are not included.

    An optional altitude kit is required when operating at altitudes above 2000 ft (610 m). The operator’s manual with the propane conversion kit provides further details. Parts must be ordered separately through John Deere Parts.

    Propane facts:

    • Propane is flammable and commonly used as a fuel.
    • The molecular formula of propane is C3H8, and it is in the family of liquefied petroleum gases (LP gases). The other LP gases include butane, propylene, butadiene, butylene, isobutylene, and mixtures thereof.
    • Propane is commonly available and has proven to be a dependable, safe, economical, and clean-burning fuel. It can be used as household fuel, industrial fuel, and fuel for internal combustion engines. Propane has been used as a fuel since 1910.
    • At atmospheric pressure, propane boils at -44°F (-42.2°C), meaning it typically exists as a vapor. However, when contained under pressure, such as in a propane cylinder, it can exist as a liquid.
    • Propane is naturally odorless, but includes an additive odorant, usually mercaptan, which gives it a distinct odor.
    • Vapor propane is heavier than air, meaning it will settle in low areas such as along the ground or in drains.

     Advantages of John Deere propane conversion kits include:

    • Reduced fuel costs, up to 30 percent depending on fuel prices
    • Lower emissions
    • Reduced fuel-system maintenance
    • Maintains John Deere warranty
    • EPA and CARB certified
    • May qualify for national and state rebate and incentive programs. Please visit www.propane.com/commercial-landscape/programs-and-incentives/ for further information.

Z920M 60" Kaw

5/5

Have had this machine now for a year.. And I am impressed every time I use it. This machine does not care what it goes thru, it'll cut it and with ease.. I bought the 60" and I was worried with the motor it would be doggie... that is not the case. This thing is a machine. Was mowing 2ft brome grass today. And no problem... what a awesome machine.

Great mower...

5/5

I have over 12 acres to cut, and this mower did a great job. I'm not just cutting grass, but all kinds of small stuff that pops up in a recovering pasture. I also have a Bermuda grass front lawn. The fields are cut at the maximum height and the Bermuda lawn at 1-1/2". After mowing the place looked like a golf course. It handled everything easily. I strongly recommend getting the most comfortable seat unless you are only cutting athletic fields. My fields are rough and it is a rough but manageable ride. Without the suspension seat I'd have had to mow at a crawl. I got the Thweels and they cushion the ride somewhat, as well. I added the lights kit, and a canopy to stay out of the hot southern sun. The large gas tank makes it easy to stay out for many hours at a time. You need a canopy. I am really impressed with this equipment. If you go to look at one, pick up the floor/foot plate-- that will give you an idea of the strength of the 7-Iron deck. I don't own other farm equipment, but I was impressed and I'm glad I bought it. In windy conditions, dry grass/weeds discharging from the chute into the wind tended to fly up and clog the cooling screens for the motor and drive units. Check them occasionally. I'm not sure that's really correctable short of bagging.

WOW. That's my first thoughts on this mower. What in incredible machine. I have used essentially every other brand, as I've been mowing for years, but always stayed away from John Deere's because of over priced reputation.....but now I get it. You get what you pay for. And this is the best. I'll never NOT use John Deere products again. I LOVE my Z920M.

Poppa's new toy!

5/5

My first Zero Turn, 920M. Took a little getting used to with the hand movements (steering) but caught on quick. I suggest if a newbie, get out and drive, play, learn and maneuver as you would mowing and get acquainted with the machine. I've read comments and my take is this: Rough ride, it's a mower, not a Mercedes. Get the high dollar seat! . . . Roll Bar: I spent 30 yrs in fire/rescue, it happens! Keep it up! . . . Speed: Be nice to cut at 10mph all the time but think safety first. . . . Safety switch in the seat: YES! Shuts mower down if you come off. . . . Step on the deck: Excellent idea. . .. Non scalp rollers: Why not? . . . Front tires: Flat free . . . Anyway, easy to set blade height, controls at your finger tips, comfort seating, easy operation, can even operate one handed, I can go on and on. Have nothing negative, but it is a new experience for me and has already cut my time in half and I'm just learning the ropes. Fun to drive, easy on my back and shoulders, steers at a flick of the wrist. Solid machine, lives up to the hype and all I've been told.
