From the operator's platform to the mower deck, John Deere QuikTrakâ¢ Mowers have a compact and functional design:
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 innovative QuikTrak design puts the operator in line with the rear axle to keep traction when mowing across slopes, providing greater control.
John Deere QuikTrak Mowers are designed, tested, and manufactured to provide the best commercial mowing machines available:
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 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:
The QuikTrak is equipped with a floating mower deck that offers several advantages over a fixed 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:
Mower deck shields are easy to remove for access to the drive belt and other service points.
Optional mulching attachment and special mulching blades are available:
A commercial-quality, 18.5-hp (13.8-kW) at 3600 rpm, air-cooled engine powers the QuikTrakâ¢ Mower:
The engine is equipped with a replaceable oil filter for longer engine life.
Engine oil fill/check tube, oil filter, and oil drain are located close together for easy and convenient service.
Quality fuel-system components enhance performance and convenience:
A fuel gauge is conveniently located to keep the operator informed about the amount of fuel remaining in the tank.
A fuel shut-off valve is provided. It should be turned off whenever the QuikTrakâ¢ Mower is not in use.
A high-quality, replaceable fuel filter is provided to help maintain reliable engine operation.
QuikTrak Mowers use a heavy-duty hydrostatic pump and wheel-motor drive system that gives reliable and consistent performance and long life:
Two Hydro-Gearâ¢, 0.61-cu in. (10-cc) axial piston, variable-displacement pumps provide hydraulic power to the wheel motors:
Two individual, 12-cu in. (196.6-cc), piston wheel motors power the QuikTrak drive wheels. Their heavy-duty construction and super-efficient axial-piston design provides superior performance and seamless power to the wheels:
A spin-on-type replaceable hydraulic oil filter is conveniently located:
A hydraulic fluid oil reservoir is located behind the leaning pad:
Transmission bypass valves are provided on each hydrostatic pump to permit moving the QuikTrak without the engine running.
Hydro-Gear is a trademark of Hydro-Gear Limited Partnership AF Holding Company.
Controls are color coded and logically placed to make them easy for the operator to find and use:
A tire brake is provided to give stability for parking the vehicle on hillsides and for transport; it should be engaged whenever the machine is not being used:
An easy-to-use cutting height adjustment system allows the operator to adjust the mower deck cutting height with no tools and minimal effort:
NOTE: Additional information on mower cutting height adjustment can be found in the mower deck section.
High-quality mower deflector directs cut clippings across the lawn for optimum appearance. Plastic material flexes if contacted to minimize damage.
Key safety features of QuikTrak Mowers include:
QuikTrak mower decks are evaluated by the manufacturer (John Deere Turf Care) and conform to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B71.4 2004 safety certification specifications for commercial turf care equipment.
All service components are easy to access:
Dual-stage air cleaner is easy to reach and easy to service:
Engine oil service points are grouped together in easy-to-reach locations:
Simply raising the leaning pad exposes the hydrostatic oil reservoir, control linkage, and other service areas.
A periodic service chart is provided for convenience in keeping up on required service.
Remove service access shields on the mower deck, battery box, etc. to service the machine:
Threaded ball and socket rod ends are used throughout the QuikTrak Mowers:
Access to check and service the hydrostatic pumps and motors is readily available at the rear of the machine.
Transmission bypass valves enable moving the vehicle without the engine running.
A secure battery box is provided to protect the battery, for reliable operation:
Four tie-down locations, two at the front and two at the rear, are provided for safely towing or anchoring the vehicle.
The large operator platform is cushioned to absorb shock to give the operator a smooth and comfortable ride.
A high-quality leaning pad is provided for operator comfort and to insulate the operator from heat given off by the machine.
A storage pocket on the battery box provides a convenient place for the operator to store a cell phone, gloves, etc.
Control levers are covered with cushioning material for operator comfort. Two stationary reference bars are provided for operator comfort and convenience:
The equipment comes with an exclusive two-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty. The warranty is best-in-class and places John Deere at the forefront of commercial mowing. It is hassle free, with one company handling all of the paper work.
QuikTrak Mowers are designed around a heavy-duty formed and welded steel frame for strength and reliability:
The operator platform is roomy and uncluttered for maximum comfort, productivity, and safety:
