Reynolds Farm Equipment Launches Z-Glide™ Suspension for John Deere Commercial Mowers

Reynolds Exclusive Patent-pending Front Suspension Fork Improves Operator Comfort Without Reducing Cut Quality

INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 22, 2017) - Reynolds Farm Equipment, a leading John Deere retailer, launched its exclusive Z-Glide™ front suspension fork for John Deere commercial mowers today, providing a direct replacement for OEM front forks that improve operator comfort without reducing quality of cut.

The American-made, patent-pending forks use torsion technology to provide a fully integrated in-fork suspension that reduces vibrations and bouncing associated with machine operation on rough or uneven terrain.

"Our exclusive Z-Glide™ front suspension for John Deere commercial mowers brings new capability to an already incredibly strong product," said Mitch Frazier, Reynolds Farm Equipment chief executive officer. "After hundreds of hours of research and in-field testing with commercial mowing customers, we're proud to bring our Z-Glide™ suspension to market and improve the ride quality of one of the industry's top performing machines."

Z-Glide™ provides a direct replacement for OEM front forks that can be installed in less than an hour with basic hand tools. Z-Glide™ is available for Z900-series of John Deere commercial mowers and is now available for pre-order exclusively from Reynolds Farm Equipment at www.ZGlideSuspension.com. The company expects its Z-Glide™ suspension forks to be available in March 2017.

"Z-Glide™ forks deliver an improved ride, reduce operator fatigue and were a simple upgrade to install," said Tim Jenniges, owner of Central Indiana commercial landscape company Jennco Enterprises. "Since installing the forks last fall as part of Reynolds' testing program, our unit with Z-Glide™ has become the mower of choice for every member of our team."

Reynolds plans to continue to expand its Z-Glide™ suspension offerings beyond John Deere Z900 mowers. The company plans to introduce new forks for John Deere's residential zero turn mowers in the second half of 2017.
