Stand on a mower that’ll help you stand apart

These mowers deliver the best of both worlds: innovative stand-on technology, combined with John Deere quality, durability, and support. The result is a tremendous stand-on experience. Stable, even on tricky hills and mounds. Excellent operator positioning, including an adjustable spring step and angled pad. A compact design for better sightlines and tighter spaces. And John Deere controls for superior maneuverability

  • Compact design for easy hauling and excellent maneuverability

  • 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 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.
    • 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.

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.
