    Z997 Diesel ZTrak Zero Turn Mowers


    Whether mowing with a side-discharge deck, a rear-discharge deck, or with a mulching deck, the 997 excels in the toughest mowing conditions. In short, the heavy-duty, large-capacity 997 gives you front-mower like power in a zero-turn mower while providing the productivity and dependability you value.


    Power is in ample supply, thanks to a 23.1 kW (31 hp) Yanmar® diesel engine. This engine provides more displacement and peak torque than most competitive mowers, which allows you to maximise hectares mowed per hour.

    Shaft-driven mower decks are available in 152 cm (60 in.) or 183 cm (72 in.) 7Iron™ II side-discharge decks or a 152 cm (60 in.) rear discharge deck.
