John Deere has released the new Z960M mower and expanded its Z970R ZTrak mowers.

The Z960M provides users with a powerful machine at an affordable price point, the company stated. With 31 hp, the Z960M is available in three deck offerings — 60 inch, 60-inch Mulch On Demand (MOD), or 72 inch. The Z970R now features two additional deck options — 60-inch side discharge (SD) or 60-inch MOD.

In addition to the new offerings, John Deere implemented improvements across all of its commercial zero-turn mowers. The current push/pull PTO switch is replaced with a toggle style switch, improving the feel of operation and switch durability. Additionally, front tie-down points were added to improve securing the machines on a trailer and lessen the risk of damage to the mowers.

John Deere and EnviroGard recently announced the expansion of the propane conversion program for John Deere dealers and their customers. The program now encompasses 36 different John Deere commercial mowing models, including 21 zero-turn mowers, seven QuikTrak stand-on mowers, and eight commercial walk-behind mowers.
