Let’s start with the Kubota ZG200 Series, which is a professional grade zero-turn mower designed for residential use. This series is powered by strong, reliable V-Twin Kubota gasoline engines that are designed specifically for mowing.

A lift-up hood, flip up seat panel and a hatch on the operator platform make it easy to access the oil filler cap, transmission and belts.

When it comes to cutting, the ZG200 Series mowers are equipped with Kubota’s Pro Commercial mower deck. The 6-inch deep, double V-belt decks have a baffling system designed to improve airflow to discharge grass clippings and an anti-overflow system that reduces grass spillage, helping give your lawn that well-manicured look. Choose from a 48, 54 or 60-inch deck.

Knowing you’ll spend some time in the seat, Kubota outfitted their ZG200 Series zero-turns with a spacious operator deck and uncluttered floorboard giving you plenty of legroom.

The decks on the ZD1000 Series are shaft driven for a smoother transfer of power from the engine to the deck. Shaft drive decks are lower maintenance, too. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of the hydraulic deck lift system, which allows you to easily work around obstacles.

To maximize operator comfort, Kubota outfitted this mower series with an adjustable suspension seat with a high backrest, dual armrests and lumbar support. You can adjust the padded seat up as well as back and forth. The wide operator deck is covered with a thick mat to help reduce noise and vibration. You can adjust the HST levers to give you more legroom. A cup holder and a storage box are located next to the seat.

This is a solid machine built for rider comfort and all-day commercial use. Whether you’re looking to replace, upgrade or add to your fleet, the Kubota ZD1000 Series deserves a serious look.

LIke the Kubota ZD1000 Series zero-turn mowers, ZD1200 mowers are equipped with an ACS Kubota Pro Deck. This Kubota exclusive deck is optimized for faster, more efficient cutting and discharging.

Another efficiency booster on the ZD1200 Series is the shaft driven mower deck. Shaft drives require less maintenance and they provide a smoother transfer of power from the engine to the deck.

Comfort is key in a commercial mower and Kubota won’t let you down in that department. The ZD1200 Series mowers have big, cushioned seats that adjust up and back and forth so you can personalize the seating position. Add to that lumbar support, a high backrest and dual armrests for added comfort touches. You have plenty of foot room on the wide operator deck and adjustable HST levers improve legroom. A thick, heavy-duty mat covers the operator deck helping to cut down on vibration and noise. A cup holder and a storage box are located next to the seat. This series also has the largest LCD panel in its class, making it easy to see important data at a glance.

As you would expect, Kubota makes it easy to reach important areas of the mower for service. The ZD1200 Series takes things one step further with an attached maintenance lift. This innovative two-pin, tilt-up maintenance lift raises the front of the mower, even with the mower deck still attached.
