For maneuverability, nothing beats our lineup of zero-turn mowers. Designed to stand up to the rigors of daily use, they combine a high-output gas or diesel engine with a host of innovative features enabling you to handle anything that crosses your path. Flexible Cover: The ZG222/ZG227 employ a flexible-yet-sturdy discharge cover to help prevent damage to shrubs and landscaping. Pedal-type Lift System: Elevate the mower deck and roll right over obstacles. The ZG222/ZG227 include a hydraulic lift system that raises and lowers the deck with the simple push of a pedal. And, if necessary, a special one-touch lock allows you to keep the deck in place. Operator Deck: Work in style and comfort. The spacious operator deck has an uncluttered floorboard to give you ample legroom. Comfortable Seat: To make mowing tasks more comfortable, we've included a cushioned seat with sturdy, padded armrests. The adjustable seat also features an attached seatbelt for your protection. Pro Commercial Mower Deck: The ZG222-48/ZG227-54 feature heavy-duty 48 in./54 in. Pro Commercial mower decks designed to maximize cutting performance. The 6 in.-deep, double-belt decks feature a unique baffling system that improves airflow to discharge grass clippings, and an anti-overflow system that reduces grass spillage and helps give lawns that well- manicured look. Optional Mulching System: These Pro Commercial mower decks are perfect for mulching, even on thick grass. Kubota's unique flow plate design optimizes airflow to allow repeated cutting, and the special mulching blades provide an extra-fine cut to leave a beautiful finish. Stamped Mower Deck: For an economical choice, the ZG222-48S is equipped with a 5 in.-deep stamped mower deck. Easy Maintenance: Maintaining your ZG doesn't get easier. The seat panel lifts up for quick access to the HST. Routine maintenance is easy-just open the hood. The maintenance hatch on the operator platform makes upper mower access a snap. For a complete view, all three can be opened at the same time. Plus, a dual-element air cleaner with vacuum sensor informs you when service is required. Kubota's optional tilt-up lift feature is also available for routine maintenance underneath the mower.
