Kubota New Zealand announced today the expansion of its residential mower line with the addition of a new model to its Kommander Z100-Series, the all-new Z122R zero-turn mower. The Z122R makes its debut into the consumer market, enhancing the Kommander series of 48- and 54-inch deck models with a 42-inch deck model. The Z122R is equipped with an industry-proven Kawasaki FR engine, and a new Hydro-Gear ZT-2200 transmission, built for homeowners seeking professional-grade mowing at an affordable price point.
"With Kubota’s new Kommander Z122R mower, homeowners do not have to choose between high-quality performance and affordability,” said Shaun Monteith, Kubota ag sales manager. "These new mowers are quality engineered to provide excellent manoeuvrability, high efficiency and a superior cut in one well-styled and comfortable package.”
Premium Quality at an Unmatched Price
With a 4-year, 300-hour warranty, the Z122R boasts unparalleled performance at an unmatched price. It is engineered with Kubota’s renowned reputation for quality and durability with its unified modern design that includes strong 1.5” x 3” tubular steel straight frame rails and thick front casters. And with a hardworking 21.5 horsepower, 4-cylinder, Kawasaki FR engine and dependable Hydro-Gear ZT-2200 transmission, the Z122R delivers power and precision when operators need it most.
The Z122R comes standard with an 11 gauge steel, 42” fabricated mower deck that is 4.5 inches deep, featuring two cutting blades for professional-level cutting. This more compact deck also allows the operator to manoeuvre through tighter areas such as gates and smaller landscaping for improved efficiency in more confined work areas. With its unique combination of powerful performance, manoeuvrability and high-quality construction, the Z122R provides homeowners with professional-grade results.
Cut with Confidence and in Comfort
Built with a standard ROPS and seatbelt, customers can rest assured that the Z122R is designed with safety and comfort top of mind. With its padded foam high back seat, coupled with a centralized foot pedal, the Z122R is easy to adjust, keeping operators comfortable and minimizing fatigue even during extra-long mowing jobs. The Z122R provides ultra-smooth steering, superior ergonomics and a best-in-class, one-piece tubular steel frame for enhanced safety and stability.
Optional kits available for the Kommander Z122R include a grass catcher kit, mulching kit, arm rest kit, LED light kit and hitch kit. Each kit enhances the Z122R’s superior quality cut to prevent streaking and maximize cutting performance.
