Kubota unveiled its new commercial zero-turn mower lineup at GIE+EXPO with three new models.
The Z411KW-48, Z421KW-54 and Z421KWT-60 are all part of the Z400 Series, which was designed to capitalize on the best engineering and technology of Kubota’s current commercial and consumer mower lines.
“We call this new series the ‘Kommander Pro’ because it bridges the gap between our residential zero-turn Kommander series and larger commercial Z700-Series,” said Tom Vachal, Kubota senior turf product manager. “Even more, it’s backed by a commercial two-year unlimited hours warranty for the commercial customer and a four-year, 500-hour warranty for the residential customer.”
The mowers are powered by Kawasaki FS gasoline engines. The Hydro-Gear commercial ZT3400 transmission allows these ZTRs to maintain optimum speed and torque, according to the manufacturer.
Landscapers can choose from a 48-, 54- or 60-inch cutting deck and each comes with a 6.8-gallon fuel tank. The 48-inch model has a 22 horsepower engine while the 54- and 60-inch models have 24 horsepower engines.
“Landscape professionals have been asking Kubota for a 60-inch commercial mower with all the features and performance at a more attractive price, and the Z400-Series is our response to this market demand,” Vachal said.
The Z400 Series has been designed for better hillside and slope performance with large, low-profile tires that also help its grass-cutting performance through dense turf.
The K-Lift deck height adjustment feature allows operators to change cutting heights with the turn of a dial and press of a pedal. The Z400 Series mowers use a foot pedal braking system.
Kubota also includes a foldable ROPS so that landscapers with enclosed trailers don’t have to worry about a tight fit.
