PRO X Series Stand-On From Cub CadetPRO X Series Stand-On From Cub Cadet

Cub Cadet’s PRO X Series of stand-on mowers gives operators the flexibility to mow a wider range of properties while providing superior productivity over a sit-down zero-turn mower. A fully fabricated 10-gauge deck shell with 7-gauge top and bottom reinforcements gives the PRO X Series a strong backbone. And with a maintenance-free design, the spindles, bearings, hubs, casters, rims, linkages, levers, and other pivot points do not need greasing. A standard 24″ tire gives the PRO X Series good ground clearance. A large, fully adjustable suspension platform allows the operator to adjust tension quickly without a tool. The suspension system was designed to provide best-in-class impact absorption, while a fully adjustable hip pad with ample side supports offers comfort and stability on slopes. Professional high-lift Marbain® blades offer a blade tip speed of up to 18,500 fpm and 1.5″ blade overlap, and a premium Kawasaki® engine offers up to 25.5 HP. An easy step-on/step-off design allows for quick debris pick-up, while a deck size equal to or greater than the tire width maxes out traction.

Landscapers can choose between 48″, 52″, or 61″ deck sizes with powerful Kawasaki® FX engine options and Hydro-Gear® ZT-3400™ transmission.

Z Master® 2000 From ToroZ Master® 2000 From Toro

The commercial-grade Toro Z Master 2000 zero-turn mower, available in deck sizes of 48″, 52″, and 60″, is built on an extra-strength fully tubular frame, and engineered for speed, reliability, and comfort. Toro or Kawasaki 25 HP engines: deliver 11 mph; drive a blade speed of 18,000 fpm; and power 24″ rear-drive tires. Heat-treated 0.204″ razor sharp steel blades provide a premium cut, while the adjustable cut-of-height foot pedal allows cut adjustments between 1.5″ to 5″ in one-quarter increments. Toro’s patented Turbo Force® deck system is a holistic engineering system focused on manipulating the air flow under the deck to chop up grass finer and discharge to prevent grass from collecting under the deck and on spindles. An adjustable baffle allows the user to create the lift and suction needed to direct grass to a third spindle, which finely shreds up clippings. A bullnose bumper creates more airflow while lifting stubborn grass and preventing clippings from being blown out the front of the machine. Fully adjustable suspension seats and armrest add comfort. Upgrade to Toro’s patented MyRIDE® suspension system for up to 3″ of suspension travel over bumps.
