Features

Features

  • MAXIMIZE YOUR WORKDAY: The steering wheel zero-turn option increases hillside stability, helping you cover acres up to 10% faster than comparable lap bar units. Plus, with the power of high-performance engines, you can tackle tough jobs and achieve a quality cut, day in and day out.
  • BEST-IN-CLASS DECK: Tackle the toughest conditions with the industry-leading only triple-7-gauge steel cutting deck: a 7-gauge deck shell with 7-gauge top and bottom reinforcements. Designed for durability, our decks produce a quality cut you can always count on.
  • MAINTENANCE MADE EASIER: Slash downtime thanks to Cub Cadet’s new spindle design. Completely sealed, dual double-row ball bearings make the spindle maintenance-free for its lifetime, and anti-friction washers prevent self-tightening, making blade maintenance easier.
  • PIVOTING FRONT AXLE: A pivoting front axle allows the front end of the PRO Z to ride across unseen terrain while protecting the quality of the cut. The frame and axle float as the PRO Z moves, allowing the deck to adapt to the shape of the terrain and avoid scalping and turf damage.
  • MADE TO MAKE THE GRADE: The new PRO Z 972 SD is a dual-wheel commercial zero-turn engineered to dominate steep hills up to a 25-degrees. It’s the best-in-class mower and the ultimate mowing solution for municipalities and properties with varying terrain.
