Compact design for easy hauling and excellent maneuverability

636M showing compact design 636M showing compact design
636M showing compact design 636M showing compact design

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 can affect the performance of the machine with their body:

 

  • The compact design of the QuikTrak allows the operator to use their body to help control the machine.
  • 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.
  • Superior stability gives more control and confidence when operating.
  • 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.
  • Minimal operator station obstruction allows safe and fast exits for clearing mower-path obstacles.
  • Operator area is designed for more comfort and less fatigue.

  • Propane is flammable and commonly used as a fuel.
  • The molecular formula of propane is C3H8, and it is in the family of liquefied petroleum gases (LP gases). The other LP gases include butane, propylene, butadiene, butylene, isobutylene, and mixtures thereof.
  • Propane is commonly available and has proven to be a dependable, safe, economical, and clean-burning fuel. It can be used as household fuel, industrial fuel, and fuel for internal combustion engines. Propane has been used as a fuel since 1910.
  • At atmospheric pressure, propane boils at -44°F (-42.2°C), meaning it typically exists as a vapor. However, when contained under pressure, such as in a propane cylinder, it can exist as a liquid.
  • Propane is naturally odorless, but includes an additive odorant, usually mercaptan, which gives it a distinct odor.
  • Vapor propane is heavier than air, meaning it will settle in low areas such as along the ground or in drains.

 Advantages of John Deere propane conversion kits include:

  • Reduced fuel costs up to 30 percent depending on fuel prices
  • Lower emissions
  • Reduced fuel-system maintenance
  • Maintains John Deere warranty
