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.
  • 48-in. to 61-in. (122-cm to 155-cm) decks come standard with an adjustable striping flap to enhance the after-cut appearance.
Flexible mower-discharge deflectorFlexible mower-discharge deflector
Large, inset caster wheelsLarge, inset caster 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.

Anti-scalp rollers are double-captured for durability. They enable the deck to float over the ground and provide a smooth, level cut on even the most challenging terrain.

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.

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, reducing 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 mowing hillsides.
  • Better visibility allows more-timely operator reaction to the 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.
