A mower manufacturer made its debut into the green industry during GIE+EXPO.
Altoz, based in Greenbush, Minnesota, unveiled 18 mower models that have travel speeds up to 19 mph.
“We want landscapers to have mowers they are proud to own,” says Dennis Brazier, owner of Altoz.
XC S Line
With three deck and engine sizes available, the XC S line uses the Aero Deck high-output system. The deck drive system and clutch produce 200-foot-pounds of torque.
The line also includes heavy-duty spindles, belt idlers, rugged front forks, sealed fork castors and watertight electrical connections. The 2014 Altoz XC S line is available in three sizes (XC 540 S, XC 610 S, XC 720 S).

This line has a top speed of 19 mph and 250-foot-pounds of torque. The XC Z line features the SmarTrak monitoring system, which has built-in maintenance reminders, a digital RPM gauge, alarm protection and on-board clock.

The mowers are available with 48-, 54- and 61-inch deck widths. The Aero Deck high-output system has a 4.5-inch, deep-deck shape with adjustable baffle. Three blades with 12 cutting edges and 18,500 fpm tip speed deliver extra-fine mulching. The XP S line tops out at 9 mph and holds 7 gallons of fuel.
