Kubota Tractor enters the residential zero-turn mower market with the Kubota Kommander ZG100-Series.
The new series includes two E models, the ZG124E and ZG127E, and two S models, the ZG123S and ZG127S, available with 48- and 54-inch decks. Kubota’s Kommander series, introduced at GIE+Expo 2012 in late October, is designed specifically for homeowners seeking a professional-quality cut and luxury comfort features and options, with its sleek design and LED headlights.
Power Meets Performance
The Kubota Kommander ZG124E and ZG127E models are equipped with 24 horsepower Briggs & Stratton Pro and 27 horsepower cyclonic commercial turf vertical shaft engines. The ZG123S and ZG127S models include LED headlights and a full suspension seat. The S models are powered by 23 or 27 horsepower Kohler Courage Pro vertical shaft engines. Each model in the series is equipped with a commercial-grade hydro-gear ZT-3100 transmission that delivers maximum power to the wheels and a large 4.3 gallon fuel tank capacity.
The Kubota Kommander’s mower deck is constructed of 10-gauge welded steel. The deck’s 5-inch-deep design and high blade tip speed allows more airflow through the blades, enabling a higher quality of cut at a faster rate and an even discharge of clippings. Kubota’s exclusive K-Lift mechanical one-push deck lift pedal and dial cam allow the operator to adjust to a wide range of cutting heights in quarter inch increments from 1.5 to 4.5 inches, for a superior, even cut on a variety of turf types.
Professional Quality Cut Meets Style and Comfort
The Kubota Kommander features a wide operator station and keyed ignition and manual choke-control on the control panel for convenient one-handed starting. Four storage compartments and two cup holders help keep the operator prepared for longer mowing projects. The Kubota Kommander features a deluxe, cushioned, 18-inch high back seat. Large 22-inch, low-profile wide rear tires not only add style, but also reduce ground contact pressure.
Safety First With Kubota
The Kubota Kommander’s low center of gravity increases stability, and standard safety features include a roll-over protective structure (ROPS), retractable seat belt, a flexible spring-loaded plastic discharge shield and four safety interlocks. Large rear tire tread is designed for better traction and performance, and the LED headlights add increased operator visibility.
