CARY, N.C., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Homeowners can now complete yard
maintenance even faster with John Deere's latest line of zero-turn radius
mowers, which provide speed and even more engine power. Two new models in the
Z200 Series of John Deere's EZtrak™ zero-turn radius mowers – the Z235 and
Z255 – have been redesigned to offer a mowing system that provides a quality
cut at a better value.

Taking a nod from popular John Deere commercial-grade mowers, the new
homeowner models are fast, more durable, and more efficient. Both the Z235 and
Z255 offer 7-mph operation with a robust belt drive transmission that boosts
ground speed. For increased durability, the frame is 20 percent thicker than
previous models. The 180-degree spin provides infinite maneuverability and
reduces the number of passes required to mow your yard—making the job faster
and efficient.

"In addition to speed, both comfort and functionality are important when doing
outdoor yard work," said Kim Ridel, John Deere product marketing manger. "The
unique comfort features such as larger foot platforms and taller foot
rests—fit the comfort needs of a variety of customers."

Operators can also adjust the cut height of the machine from one to four
inches in a matter of seconds, without getting out of the driver's seat.

The Z200 Series EZtraks come with two mower deck options: a 42-inch deck on
the Z235 and a 48-inch deck on the Z255. Each model also includes the John
Deere Edge™ Cutting System, a patented design that lifts and distributes
clippings evenly.

With a platform that easily lifts, customers have easy access to the deck
drive belt, for cleaning out grass clipping buildup, and quickly performing
maintenance. A service interval decal, located next to the operator's seat, is
a helpful reminder for regular maintenance.

"Celebrating our 50^th year in the lawn and garden equipment business, the
Z235 and Z255 join a broad line of more than 30 John Deere zero-turn radius
mowers for commercial and residential use," said Ridel.
