The Fuquay-Varina, N.C., facility has set a milestone; manufacturing its 500,000th turf care product.

John Deere recently marked a manufacturing milestone with the completion of the 500,000th unit built at the Turf Care factory in Fuquay-Varina, N.C. The unit, a ZTrak(TM) Mower, was celebrated by the entire factory and will be on display at several upcoming local events.

"Producing the 500,000th machine is a significant milestone for John Deere and our whole Turf Care team," said Rosalind Fox, factory manager.

Today, Turf Care produces 10 different models of commercial mowing and golf equipment that are distributed throughout North America and exported to more than 100 countries. Commercial mowing and golf equipment products manufactured by Turf Care include the Wide Area Mower, Front Mower, Gas and Diesel ZTrak(TM) Mowers, Trim and Surround Mower, Fairway Mower, Greens Mower, ProGator(TM) and 7-Iron(TM) Decks.
