Kubota’s all-new ZD Series zero-turn mowers: the ZD1000 and the ZD1200 are available in three deck widths (54, 60 and 72 inches) and are driven by powerful Kubota diesel engines, with outputs ranging from 21 to 29 horsepower, with hydrostatic transmissions and pivoting front axles.
The new ZD Series features Kubota’s latest patented innovative Aerodynamic Cutting System™, which provides for more efficient use of power resulting in better fuel efficiency and faster cutting performance.
The ZD Series offers a reduction in steering control-lever resistance for easier manoeuvrability.
Operator comfort is enhanced by premium high-back suspension seats; additionally, the ZD1200 comes with a 3.5-inch LCD display screen to allow the operator to more closely monitor vehicle functions.
Low-profile tyres and an aerodynamic deck design reduce rolling resistance, improving fuel economy, and newly designed blades allow the mower to cut faster with less horsepower.
All told, the new ZD zero-turns offer unsurpassed levels of comfort, convenience and performance while remaining true to the Z Series’ no-nonsense, workhorse nature. The new ZD Series will be available at Kubota dealerships beginning in October 2016.
