Zero-turn mowers have so many benefits, from better maneuverability and mulching to less fuel consumption and shorter mow time. Here are three zero-turn mowers we love:
John Deere (pictured above)
The John Deere Z955R ZTrak™ Zero-Turn Mower is equipped with a proven Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) engine, and is designed to increase fuel efficiency and productivity during long days of work. The Z955R, with a 60-inch side-discharge deck is powered by a 29-HP EFI engine, delivering class-leading performance and efficiency. With this model, John Deere is providing landscape professionals with an EFI engine at a higher horsepower, increasing fuel efficiency and power in varied mowing conditions. Other features on the Z955R model include two seat choices with the comfort-boosting ComfortGlide™ suspension.
Hustler Turf Equipment’s FasTrak commercial zero-turn mower offers unbeatable power and performance. With three choices of deck size, this mower makes quick work of expansive areas. The recently upgraded FasTrak is equipped with 23-inch BigBite tires and Kawasaki FT Commercial V-twin Engines, giving it the strength to take on any job. Kohler EFI engines are also available. The heavy-duty FasTrak commercial mower is now engineered with Hydro-Gear ZT 3200 transmissions across all model options. Hustler Turf also offers an exclusive four-year, 750-hour warranty on the FasTrak.
For 2021, Exmark has updated its largest, most powerful Lazer Z model: the 96-inch Lazer Z Diesel. A new engine shroud reduces operating temperature with a larger air intake screen. The increased surface area of the new screen allows the fan to draw cleaner, cooler intake air across the radiator. The location of the screen has also been revised to significantly reduce blockage from clippings and debris. Features include a 96-inch UltraCut Flex Wing rear-discharge cutting deck that enables one operator to cut up to 10 acres per hour. The increased productivity can replace up to three 72-inch zero-turn mowers. The machine includes RED Technology-equipped Yanmar liquid-cooled diesel engines that deliver increased fuel efficiency with reduced service-related downtime. Lazer Z Diesel models are also available with a choice of 60- or 72-inch UltraCut cutting decks, inside or rear-discharge configurations.
