A well-maintained lawn is always a welcome sight, and never more so than now. John Deere is introducing new features to its X100 Series range of lawn tractors for 2021, along with updates to the X300 and X500 Series, and three new ZTrak zero-turn ride-on mowers.
All six models in the X100 range incorporate the stylish new bonnet design. The hydrostatic transmission and side-by side pedals enable the operator to change direction without raising a foot, making them very comfortable to operate. The grass collector bag has been redesigned for easier emptying and cleaning. Standard on the X117R, X147R and X167R lawn tractors, the collector is available as an option on the X107, X127 and X167 side-discharge models.
The car-style dashboard now includes an easy-to-read fuel gauge on the X127 and X167 models. A new open back seat on selected models in the range offers enhanced comfort, especially on hot days.
All X300 and X500 Series lawn tractors for 2021 benefit from more powerful engines which enable them to handle steeper slopes and speeds up mowing in larger areas, as well as improved snow blowing performance in winter. The X354, X370 and X380 models come with a new style high back seat that delivers a higher level of comfort and support.
Three new Z500 zero-turn ride-on mowers also join the John Deere line-up for 2021. The Z515E, Z530M and top of the range Z545R all deliver outstanding agility for fast mowing, especially around obstacles and on uneven ground. All three machines feature deep decks with a cutting width of 122cm (48in) and a wide discharge chute for excellent grass distribution even at high ground speeds. A robust frame and roll over protection (ROPS) are standard on all models.
The Z545R benefits from an electric fuel injection engine with electronic hand throttle and integrated LED lighting (standard on R and optional on E and M models).
