ZGlide Suspension™ Launches First Suspension Forks for John Deere Residential Zero Turn Mowers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Unveiling of Patent-Pending Front Suspension Forks for John Deere Z300-Series Follows Successful Launch of Suspension for John Deere Commercial Mowers

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 18, 2017) – ZGlide Suspension™, a leading provider of suspension forks for zero turn mowers, launched its new front suspension for John Deere residential zero turn mowers today, giving homeowners a direct replacement for OEM forks that improve operator comfort without reducing cut quality.

Launched at GIE+Expo 2017, the American-made, patent-pending forks use integrated torsion technology to provide in-fork suspension that reduces vibrations and bouncing associated with machine operation on rough terrain.

"Commercial mowing operators have quickly made ZGlide the product of choice to improve ride quality, and now we are bringing that proven technology to the fast-growing residential market,” said Mitch Frazier, chief executive officer of Reynolds Farm Equipment, the parent company of ZGlide Suspension™. “Our new residential ZGlide forks performed incredibly well in our product tests in every setting – from small suburban lots to hilly homesteads.”

ZGlide Suspension™ is a direct replacement for OEM front forks that can be installed in less than an hour with basic hand tools. With today’s launch, ZGlide Suspension™ is now available for the following models of zero turn mowers:

  • John Deere Residential Models: Z235, Z255, Z335M&E and Z345M&R.
  • John Deere Commercial Models: Z710A, Z720A, Z910A, Z915B&E, Z920A,M&R, Z925 A&M, Z930A,M&R, Z945M, Z950A,M&R, Z955M, Z960A,M&R and Z970A&R.

“ZGlide transformed the ride of my mower,” said Dave Lawson, an Indiana homeowner who field tested the new residential ZGlide Suspension. “We have a rough lawn and rolling hills, and ZGlide soaks up the bumps and makes mowing even better than I could have imagined.”

The new residential ZGlide Suspension™ forks are available for pre-order today and will retail at $219. The units are expected to be available by early December. Customers can locate the nearest ZGlide Suspension™ dealer or pre-order the forks online by visiting www.ZGlideSuspension.com

The launch of the new ZGlide Suspension™ for residential zero turn mowers follows the successful debut of the company’s high performance suspension forks for John Deere commercial mowers. Since launching earlier this year, the company has shattered sales goals for the product and plans to continue to expand its offerings to additional makes, models and applications.
