The Z710A is powered by a 23-hp (17-kW) gas-powered, air-cooled Kohler Command PRO commercial-grade engine, while the Z720A (shown) is powered by a 25-hp (19-kW) model.

John Deere says that one of the reasons behind its launch of the Z700 ZTrak was the need to "simplify the decision process for entry-level professionals" from a reliability and durability stance. Three models make up the new line, including the Z710A, with 48- and 54-in (1219- and 1372-mm) decks, and the Z720A, with a 60-in (1524-mm) deck.

The ZTrak 700 Series is a productive machine but in a less-expensive and lower-featured model than the ZTrak PRO Series. Using a similar steel channel frame and castings as those on the PRO Series, the Z700s feature the proven 7-Iron II mower deck with mowing speeds up to 10-mph (16-km/h) and a 400-lb (181-kg) towing capacity.

For comfort and convenience, the Z700s are equipped with pneumatic front tires for a soft ride, comfortable high-back bucket seat with armrests, a fully folding ROPS, an easy-grip turning height-of-cut adjustment, and Deere's exclusive Brake & Go system.

The Z710A is powered by a 23-hp (17-kW) gas-powered, air-cooled Kohler Command PRO commercial-grade engine, while the Z720A is powered by a 25-hp (19-kW) model.
