Do-It-Yourself (DIY) homeowners who can’t wait for lawn mowing season to begin have another reason to be excited as spring approaches – the launch of the new Z200 series of residential, zero-turn riding mowers from Husqvarna.
The Z200 models – Z242F, Z248F, Z246, Z246i, Z254 and Z254i – add depth to Husqvarna’s already-extensive line of lawn and garden equipment, thanks to improved ergonomics, functionality, refinement, deck options, and other features that improve and simplify the mowing experience. A key addition to select models of the Z200 zero-turn mowers is SmartSwitch technology, an innovative operator interface, offering one-touch starting, real-time feedback and keyless security.
“At Husqvarna, we take pride in continually striving to improve mowing performance and equipment durability, and we have achieved both with the Z200 series of residential zero-turn mowers,” said Sean Dwyer, director of regional product development, Husqvarna. “Its wide range of features takes easy and efficient, zero-turn mowing to new heights.”
Borrowing from Husqvarna’s successful residential zero-turn platform, the new Z200 series offers a wide range of features and options, including an open-design chassis (removable foot plate reduces debris buildup and improves service access); a variety of deck sizes (46- and 54-inch reinforced stamp and 42- and 48-inch fabricated decks); a spring-assisted deck lift (located in the left console for easier accessibility); an automatic mechanical brake system; refined consoles, control panel, rear bumper, engine guard and side panels; and a powerful LED headlight.
The Z200 zero-turn mowers will be available in March 2015 with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP), ranging from $2,699 to $3,499. All Z200 models can be purchased at a local Husqvarna dealer, while the Z246 model is also available at Lowe’s.
