John Deere Introduces Flex Fuel ZTrak™ Commercial Mower
New Z925M Flex Fuel Model Offers Alternative Fuel Option for Landscape Contractors
CARY, North Carolina (July 2, 2013) – John Deere is expanding its popular line of ZTrak mowers by adding a Flex Fuel model to its fleet. The new, industry exclusive, Z925M Flex Fuel is compatible with ethanol blends up to E85, giving contractors a new alternative fuel option for their fleets.
"When we introduced the new line of ZTrak mowers last year, our intent was to meet the needs of every customer," said Steve Wilhelmi, John Deere tactical marketing manager. "The new Z925M Flex Fuel model continues that mission by appealing to customers who need or prefer to run on alternative-fuel platforms."
The new Flex Fuel model is part of the M Series of ZTrak commercial mowers, designed for customers seeking productivity and efficiency. With a 24.6 hp* electronic fuel injected engine, the Z925M Flex Fuel can run on any blend of ethanol-mixed fuel, up to E85, and it has a top speed of 10 mph. Offered in 54- and 60-inch widths, it comes equipped with a 7-Iron™ deck, for maximum durability.
Enhancing operator comfort, the new model offers the option of an isolation seat or a fully-adjustable, suspension seat. For easy cleanup on the jobsite, an optional, integrated material collection system provides a Dump-From-Seat option for enhanced ease of use.
Finally, the Z925M Flex Fuel comes with a class-leading 3-year/1200 hour warranty.
Like the rest of the ZTrak lineup, the new Z925M Flex Fuel is an eligible purchase within the GreenFleet ™ Loyalty Rewards program. The industry-exclusive loyalty program from John Deere is designed to help customers manage their equipment more easily and cost-effectively.
