Muscle your way through the tough stuff

Sometimes the job calls for sheer power. That’s when you call on the Z997R Zero-Turn Diesel. This heavy-duty, large-capacity machine gives you front-mower-like power in a zero-turn mower – along with the ZTrak™ productivity and dependability you can count on.

The Z997R is available in four different deck configurations to fit your needs:

  • The 60-in. (152-cm) 7-Iron PRO side-discharge deck is suited to a variety of mowing jobs, including trimming and grooming.
  • The 60-in. (152-cm) 7-Iron PRO Mulch On Demand mower deck can be converted from a wide-open, side-discharge mode to a fully chambered mulching mode with a single move of a lever.
  • The 60-in. (152-cm) rear-discharge mower deck is fabricated from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.5-mm) steel for added deck strength and long life. It is ideally suited for areas where people are present.
  • The 72-in. (183-cm) 7-Iron PRO side-discharge deck is suited to a variety of mowing jobs, including trimming and grooming on larger properties.
