John Deere is expanding its ZTrak mower attachment lineup with the addition of a new three-bag Material Collection System (MCS).

“For professional landscape contractors, time is money, and we understand the importance of efficiency while mowing,” said Natalie Haller, product manager, John Deere. “One of the more time-consuming parts of mowing is cleaning up grass clippings. With the improved three-bag Material Collection System, grass and leaves are efficiently captured in the system. Additionally, as a result of the improved system design, captured materials are easily dumped, boosting overall productivity.”

Compatible with all gas-powered Z900 models, the the new design reduces the size of the MCS, making it easier to maneuver and transport on trailers, according to the company. The location of the blower housing behind the rear tire of the mower creates a shorter path for the clippings to travel from the blower into the bag to reduce the occurrence of plugs. Also, with stronger suction on the blower, there are no double passes required, saving operators time.

The 11.75-inch diameter, heavy-duty impeller chops up materials into small pieces, creating a more efficient fill from left to right. This ensures the system collects as many clippings as possible. In addition, the bags are lighter than the previous model, even when full, making it easier to unload and empty, and tool-free clips offer easy in-field removal, allowing the operator to quickly go from collecting to side discharge.
