John DeereCARY, N.C. — Landscape professionals can be among the first to buy a John Deere ZTrak 900 Series zero-turn mower equipped with the MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF at GIE+EXPO 2015. The airless radial tire virtually eliminates tire downtime and is nearly maintenance free.

“We’re excited to offer contractors the first opportunity to purchase this revolutionary product at booth #1110,” said Nick Minas, product manager, John Deere Commercial Mowing. “John Deere experts will be on hand to take and process orders, but we encourage contractors to reserve their ZTrak today as quantities are limited, and the next purchase opportunity won’t be until 2016.”

The MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF is an airless radial tire sold exclusively for John Deere ZTrak 900 Series models with 54-, 60- and 72-inch deck sizes. Unlike traditional pneumatic tires, the MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF virtually eliminates tire downtime and is nearly maintenance free.

The X TWEEL TURF has the same dimensions and bolt pattern as a standard 24x12x12 tire, and features automotive rubber technology, allowing the tread to last up to three times longer than standard turf tires.

A John Deere ZTrak 900 Series mower equipped with the MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF is an eligible purchase within the GreenFleet Loyalty Rewards program.

New machines ordered at the show will be delivered to contractors by Dec. 31, 2015.
