Visitors to this year’s Saltex will bear witness to Cub Cadet’s commitment to the professional market, with the newly designed Pro Z Series, commercial, zero-turn mowers being a highlight of the show. The company has gone right back to the drawing board in developing this innovative range, displaying its dedication to developing high performance and efficient machinery for landscaping professionals.

The Pro Z Series line up consists of the PRO Z1, PRO Z5 and the PRO Z7, with each machine being designed to meet the specific needs of professional landscape contractors.

These machines are the strongest, most efficient mowers to have ever been created by Cub Cadet, and have been given the official seal of approval by 100 landscapers who put them through their paces for a rigorous testing period of 16 weeks. All of the machines have been developed with extreme strength at their core. The PRO Z5 and PRO Z7 have been designed and built with the industry’s only Triple 7-gauge deck, which features three layers of 7-gauge steel, plus a 1/4-inch leading edge and 5/16-inch side reinforcements. From frame to front yoke, the Pro Z Series is designed to absorb the impact of rough terrain and stand up to the demands of everyday professional use.

In addition to this, the full-length laser-cut steel frame and 5/16-inch steel rear bumpers are protected with a durable e-coating. This precise, multi-stage process provides automotive-grade corrosion defence and goes above and beyond the industry standard. High-back suspension seats with lumbar support and padded armrests come as standard, meaning that you can work fatigue free, for longer and in more comfort than ever before.

The market-leading steering system – Synchro Steer – delivers the ultimate manoeuvrability and control, with smooth, precise handling and increasing hillside stability.

The PRO Z1 is equipped with a 137cm / 54” welded cutting deck and can cover 5,000 m2/h with speeds of 9.5 mph. The PRO Z5 has a 152cm / 60” cutting deck and with a 10mph cutting speed, can cover up to 6,000 m2/h. Finally, the PRO Z7 has a 183cm / 72” cutting deck, has a cutting speed of 12mph and can cover up to 7,500 m2/h.

The PRO Z1 produces a commercial-quality cut with landscaper-approved speed, efficiency and comfort. It is equipped with an Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) engine by Kohler, which makes the machine extremely fuel efficient, saving both time and money; two things that are always in high demand!

The PRO Z5 allows users to maximize work days with efficient engines, larger fuel capacity and an industry-leading commercial cutting deck. Its high-torque commercial transmission paired with a high-horsepower, commercial-grade Kawasaki engine, work seamlessly together to provide optimal and consistent blade tip speed.

The jewel in the crown is the PRO Z7, which offers greater rated power, higher top speeds, more comfort and a larger deck. This machine makes a hard day’s work easy, providing extreme power via the commercial-grade Kawasaki engine, and ultimate comfort with the seat benefiting from an isolation dampening system with lumbar adjustments.

Phil Noble, Field Sales and Technical Manager for Cub Cadet UK, said: “The PRO Z series is loaded with features that have been painstakingly designed for exceptional performance, unmatched comfort and beautiful results. We are dedicated to working with the professional sector, and believe that we have created products that will prove to be, not only popular, but indispensable to the market.”
