Reviews: John Deere EZtrak™ Z425 Zero Turn Mower
I bought the 425 day before yesterday, This is an absolutely an amazing machine. It is ten time better than the Toro 5000 which I tried out. I am glad the person I was with knew enough about mowers to show me how much better built and other things which I know not, but this is some machine.
I bought a John Deere Z425 last year. It has 170 Hrs. on it and the engine blew. I wish I would of got the 48 inch deck. Mower seems to bog down easy with the 54 inch deck. I think John deere may have tried to push it putting a 54 inch deck with a 23 horse power motor.

Got my new machine yesterday. Spent 2 hours plowing through an overgrown field of grass and weeds over 3ft tall that most people would call in a bush-hog for. It never bogged down! I am thoroughly impressed so far!!
Had my 425 about one and half years. It cuts great; probably because of the deck design and the high blade rotation speed. It does so much better than my old cub cadet (42 inch) that I previously owned. I even cut at half throttle to save gas (and the engine) and it still does a great job of cutting. The only down items are: 1. Since the blades turn up so fast, it makes a lot of dust and dirt...the down side of a good cut I suppose. 2. There is no foot peddle to control height of cut. You must lift it by hand if you are approaching a small stump, etc in your yard. 3. Over the year, the battery went dead and it was a bit difficult to start despite my running the engine dry in the fall. (I installed a shut off valve in the gas line to permit this.) In summary, I love it!
