THE INDUSTRY STANDARD IS ANYTHING BUT STANDARD
The sweet spot for the biggest value in homeowner class mowers has been the ZT Elite for almost a decade. We continuously build it stronger, smoother, more comfortable and more ergonomic. Even after adding improvements, we haven’t sacrificed an ounce of power, strength or performance.
In fact, it’s even 30 lbs. lighter—and yet our strongest ZT Elite ever! There’s a reason it’s been our best selling model since the day we introduced it. We encourage you to compare with any zero-turn mower in its price range and you’ll find there is simply no better value for the residential homeowner — anywhere.
