Key Features
  • Engine Options: The ZT1500 zero turn features the Briggs & Stratton Professional Series™ engine.
  • Hydro-Gear® EZT® Transaxles: Designed to meet the demand of heavier zero turn mowers, tackling lawn care with greater horsepower. The EZT® transaxles are smooth, while providing variable mower speed and bi-directional control in a compact lightweight package!
  • Rugged Castor Wheels: Rugged Caster wheel assembly and smooth treaded tires prevent turf damage on hairpin turns. Each wheel swivels 360-degrees on ball bearings.
  • Pivoting Front Axle: The pivoting front axle not only has ride-damping front shocks that offer hours of comfortable lawn mowing; it also supports and allows the mower to follow ground contours without scalping the grass.
  • Control Panel: Every control is right at your fingertips, key choke, throttle, mower engagement, headlight switch, hour meter, cup holder, and fuel gauge.
  • Twin-lever Control: Soft-touch, twin-lever control lets you glide through turns and around obstacles controlling ground speed with spin-on-a-dime maneuverability.
