From the operator's platform to the mower deck, John Deere QuikTrak™ Mowers have a compact and functional design:

  • The compact design allows the QuikTrak to operate in tighter areas that a larger machine cannot. Often, this means the area can be mowed with a QuikTrak so it is not necessary to switch to a walk-behind mower, which helps reduce the time on site.
  • With the compact design of QuikTrak Mowers, less space is required on a truck or trailer - which can mean there is room for an extra mower, resulting in less time on property, saving time and money.

Whether mowing hills or on level terrain, trimming or mowing straight-away, the operator of a John Deere QuikTrak is able to affect the performance of the machine with their body:

  • The compact design of the QuikTrak allows the operator to use their body to help control the machine.
  • The innovative QuikTrak design puts the operator in line with the rear axle to keep traction  when mowing across slopes, providing greater control.

  • Faster ground speeds get work done quicker.
  • Better traction on slopes gives more control and increased productivity.
  • Superior stability gives more control and confidence when operating.
  • Better visibility allows for quick operator reaction times to changing terrain and obstructions.
  • Standing area is designed for improved range of motion to allow the operator more room to move and avoid obstacles.
  • Minimal operator station obstruction allows safe and fast exits for clearing mower-path obstacles.
  • Operator area is designed for more comfort and less fatigue.

John Deere QuikTrak Mowers are designed, tested, and manufactured to provide the best commercial mowing machines available:

  • Bull-nosed shape of the front edge of the mower deck allows caster wheels to be set back further, closer to the blades, for more effective ground following capability.
  • Compact design takes less space for mowing tighter areas and may allow room for an extra machine when hauling to the worksite.

A well-designed mower deck can make the difference between just getting the job done and getting eye-catching results. The 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) fabricated mower deck delivers a higher quality of cut in more diverse conditions to enhance mowing performance.

Key features of the fabricated mower deck include: 

  • The mower deck is manufactured from 7-gauge, 0.179-in. (4.6-mm) steel to minimize the number of welds and provide a smooth underside, with fewer sharp corners, for reduced material buildup.
  • A compact footprint delivers greater maneuverability when working in tight quarters.
  • A deep-deck design delivers excellent airflow so material is processed quickly and efficiently.
  • A powerful vacuum effect is created by the deck's unique air-flow design, which pulls more grass upright so that the blades can cut more evenly.

Caster wheelsCaster wheels

The wide-discharge opening and raised deflector provide even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions.

Caster wheels with flat-free tires contribute to a smooth, even cutting job:

  • Large, flat-free caster wheels carry the mower deck smoothly over the lawn.
  • Caster wheels are recessed to reduce the vehicle footprint and turning radius.
    • With the wheels less exposed, there is less chance they will get snagged by immovable obstacles, thus improving maneuverability and reducing damage.

 

Mower lift lever (raised position)Mower lift lever (raised position)

The QuikTrak is equipped with a floating mower deck that offers several advantages over a fixed mower deck:

  • The lift lever allows the operator to raise the mower to the full-up position from the operator's station.
    • Convenient when transporting from one mowing area to another and when loading/unloading.
    • Allows the operator to raise the mower over roots or other obstructions in the lawn on the fly.
  • Lift-assist springs reduce the effort required to raise the mower deck.

Mower cutting height can be set from 1.25 in. (3.2 cm) to 5 in. (12.7 cm) in 0.25-in. (0.64-cm) increments:

  • Pull the lift lever back to the full-raised position.
  • Remove the tethered pin and place it at the desired cutting height.
  • Lower the lift lever; the lift lever and mower will stop at the desired cutting height.

Mower deck shields are easy to remove for access to the drive belt and other service points.

  • This is a high-performance mulching attachment that includes formed steel baffles to control the material for superior performance.
  • The special mulching blades can also be used for side discharging, though overall cutting performance may be slightly less than with the standard blades.

The mulching attachment allows converting the mower deck so it can be used to perform the mulching function (grass or leaves).

 

These mulching attachments are used on QuikTrak™ mowers with cutting widths of 36 in. (91 cm), 48 in. (122 cm ), 52 in. (132 cm), and 61 in. (155 cm).

Operating tips when mulching:

  • Mow when grass is dry.
  • Observe the one-third rule.
    • No more than one-third of the grass blade should be cut off at one time. This allows more efficient mulching and will promote the continued good health of the grass. If the desired cut height can't be achieved by cutting off one-third, or there is clumping of the clippings, it may be required to cut higher; wait a day, then lower the mower and make a second pass.
  • Mow at proper intervals - approximately every four to five days.
  • Always mow with sharp blades.

Grass catcher to mower installation featuresGrass catcher to mower installation features

The 3.5-bu (123-L) grass catcher provides operators with a simple, compact solution for collecting small amounts of material. The deck-mounted hopper prevents unwanted grass clippings from being dispersed onto sidewalks, parking lots, flowerbeds, water features, and other landscaping features. By collecting this material, time spent cleaning up after mowing is reduced.

Installation

Installation and removal of the grass catcher is simple and fast. No drilling or additional bolt-on components are needed. Two large handles made from round tubing offer a variety of ways to handle the grass catcher.

Construction

A stainless-steel frame provides strength to the grass catcher. Strong, lightweight aluminum mesh sides are securely attached to the frame. The bottom of the hopper consists of a single piece of aluminum.

Easy to empty

Best John Deere for hill sides

5/5

I sold my commercial zero turn - which was great for a large yard - for this quiktrak 36 inch mover and have no regrets. I broke my leg a few years back and was concerned that standing would be an issue - it’s easier on me than sitting, the spring absorbs any bumps - just remember to keep knees slightly bent. The zero turn would rise off the front wheels when I cut the back-yard due to the hill, this climbs it like a tank - just hold on to it. The center of gravity helps it to climb a steeper hill. I had to drive over 250 miles to find a dealer would carried this model - test drove it - and loaded it up in the back of my pickup truck. 36" fits great through my gates. I don't use this commercially - I just value my time. For my yard <1 acre - with a fenced in area - and a sloped back yard - this is perfect. Faster than the zero, and a lot quicker cutting than pushing.
