The zero turn mower with zero turn compromises.

This is the mower that just begs to be compared to every other model out there. The same commercial quality construction from our professional line of mowers is at the core of this zero-turn marvel. With 1/2" steel front forks, 2" x 2" tubular steel framing and 7-gauge solid steel deck powered by high-horsepower engines usually reserved for commercial models, the numbers all add up to the best value in a residential mower ANYWHERE. Featuring auto-neutral handles, electric deck height and electric blade start, it’s a commercial quality mower in an easy-to-use, homeowner-focused Bad Boy orange package.

  • 3100 Hydro-Gear® Drive System. Our ZT drive system features a 10cc Hydro-Gear® pump and all-steel gearing with heavy-duty steel bearings with easily serviceable and replaceable filters, hydraulic fluid reservoir, and heavyduty construction. It’s the quiet, smooth secret at the core of our ZT’s success!
  • Deep down, aren’t we all professionals? There’s just no getting around it, the ZT challenged the entire industry on strength, power and price. Was it built for pros or homeowners? Was it priced for small lawn care companies or folks with a little bigger yard they wanted mowed considerably faster? The answer—of course—is yes.
  • Easy Operation. Packed with features usually found on mowers twice as expensive—such as electric blade start and electric adjustable deck height—and all right at your fingertips.
  • Easy To Maintain. With virtually all mechanical, hydraulic and electrical systems accessible with a flip of the seat, the ZT is as easy to maintain as it is to operate.
  • Pick Your Power. Available in either the Briggs Professional Series or Kohler engine, any way you power it, it’s the most horsepower in its class.
