Cub Cadet challenging steep slopes at Saltex

Published on: 29/10/2021


Cub Cadet will be showcasing their latest machine the new top of the range Z9 183id zero-turn at Saltex on the 3rd and 4th November. Proven by landscape professionals the Z9, on stand H070, will fulfil all your commercial requirements.

With extremely wide double wheels, the Z9 has been developed to effortlessly tackle even the steepest slopes up to 25° / 46%.

The ability to control all four wheels with a steering wheel and steerable front wheels, an exclusive offering, minimises the turf being churned up by the wheels as it would on a lap bar zero-turn.

Powering through the thickest grass in one pass at up to 12mph with a blade tip speed up to 18,500 fpm and 3” total blade overlap; ensures that you always get a tight consistent cut. The frame and axle on the Z9 floats as the machine moves, allowing the multi-reinforced steel deck to follow the shape of the terrain and avoid scalping.

The Kawasaki EFI engine provides the consistent power you need to get the job done and maximise your workday. Your operators can experience a smooth ride all day long thanks to the exclusive air-cushioned seat and isolated dampening system on the Z9.

Ideal for commercial users and owners of large properties with challenging slopes, the Z9 has everything that you would expect from a quality professional machine - ultimate performance, comfort and durability that delivers a fast, premium cut every time.

Also on the stand and new for 2021 is the award-winning XZ7 L152i which redefines the zero-turn mowing experience - with enhanced strength, re-imagined comfort and a best-in-class cut.

The latest steering lever lap bar technology combined with the extremely robust construction of heavy-duty components and high-performance engines makes the machine the ideal professional machines for large lawn maintenance.

The open continuous tubular lightweight steel frame is designed for strength and durability. The hinged/removable floor pan allows quick and easy access to the welded, all round reinforced AeroForce Max™ mowing deck and engine for ease of maintenance.

A powerful Kohler EFI V-Twin dual cylinder engine gives the machine the power to mow up to 15,000 m²h.

With a large cutting width of 60”/152cm, the machine puts owner/operator comfort at the forefront of its design with a premium high-back seat with armrests and adjustable suspension for fatigue-free working.

The XZ7 L152i is ideal for mowing rolling hills, with its outstanding stability on slopes, and around obstacles, with its effortless manoeuvrability. Even on the most difficult lawns the spring-mounted suspension on the front wheels ensure a smooth ride with less vibration.

Steep slopes and rolling hills are no challenge for the Z9 and XZ7. Come and see the machines on stand H070 or check out them out at
