    NEW! Z700 series Ztrak mowers for 2019

    Made a short trip to the JD dealer today to get s.plugs, engine oil, oil filter for my Z710A, and salesman mentioned I might be willing to take a peak at the new 2019 Z740R Ztrak series that they will have soon. The Z740R will have the 'New' ComfortGlide suspension seat as standard equipment. Wonder what made John Deere go and bring back the Z700 series after few years elapses. Here is a video on these new mowers.

    Well it looks like Deere is trying to address the rough ride a little, but from the vid, those folks still bounce a lot.

    Have the suspension seat on mine, but it appears the new ones also have a back angle adjust, that would be very nice.

    I see some "bright eyed" John Deere engineer (just started yesterday) talked the Bosses into installing the fuel tank down in front way under the seat. Which means if you want to take a peak how much fuel you have in the tank, you have to stop the engine, get off the tractor and with a magnifying glass try to see how much fuel you will see behind that dull plastic that shows the fuel in the tank. Great engineering idea John Deere. I like mine on the Z710A with the gauge right on top where it always should be.

    Old Cajun, It appears that the company...Seat Warehouse has already copied the John Deere "ComfortGlide" seat as shown in the YouTube video above. John Deere just adds some black plastic vinyl inserts on the seat to make it look pretty. I would bet the 2019 Z740R seat is close to $700.00 if a person would buy one from JD parts. Seat Warehouse from their ebay add shows the same "adjustment control knob as the JD model
