Both feature the same 54cm cast-aluminium deck but with additional steel reinforcements and the TurboStar collection system.
John Deere's anti-vibration system is fitted as standard on the handlebars of the commercial mowers, giving all-day, stress-free operation. Power comes from a 6.5hp Kawasaki engine and, to provide longer working hours with fewer refills, the fuel tank is sited externally. Cutting height is adjustable from 17mm to 85mm and both models offer variable speeds of 2.5km/h to 5.5km/h. The grass-collection bags have an 80-litre capacity and a "bag full" indicator.
