With numerous mowers in the market, it can be hard to choose the right option for you. There are several different mower style options you can choose from; walk-behinds, lawn tractors, stand-ons, and zero-turns. Each mower type is designed to excel in a different area. This article dives into the different types of John Deere Zero-Turn mowers Virginia Tractor sells. John Deere makes two zero-turn line-ups, commercial and residential. As the names suggest, the commercial zero-turn mowers are built for professional lawn care companies and residential zero-turn mowers are built for homeowners.
At a glance, it can be difficult to tell the difference between commercial and residential zero-turn mowers. The overall design of the mowers is very similar. The main difference is the durability of the machines. The commercial mowers are built to withstand more use and tougher conditions than the residential mowers because they will likely be used exponentially more than a residential machine that is used on one lawn. The commercial machines are built with heavier-duty materials.
An easy way to tell the difference between John Deere’s two types of zero-turns is the coloring on the mowers. The commercial mowers have green mowing decks and the upgraded seats are yellow with black accents. The residential machines have yellow mowing decks and the upgraded seats are yellow with green accents.
John Deere is a leading brand for zero-turn mowers. These zero-turn mowers are among the top picks for professional lawn care fleets because they are built to last and designed for optimal operator comfort. The commercial zero-turn mowers have heavy-duty C-channel frames and cast iron front forks so they can withstand years of day-in and day-out labor. The commercial line-up consists of 3 series: E, M, and R. Each of these series provides you with a different level of options. With 15+ model sizes for you to choose from with varying fuel options, you can easily find the perfect fit for your operation. You can choose a regular gas, electronic fuel injection, propane, or diesel engine option. They also have larger fuel tanks, optional adjustable suspension seats, and easily adjustable deck heights to make mowing as easy as possible. These zero-turns are designed to mow faster, cut cleaner, and tackle thicker grass than other mowers.
Buying a John Deere Zero-Turn mower will not only boost your operation’s efficiency, but it will also help decrease operator burnout caused by operating uncomfortable and finicky equipment.
