Gravely announced on June 24 the introduction of the ZT-X, an all-new zero-turn lawn mower bred from commercial DNA but designed for the homeowner. With fabricated deck designs in either 42-inch or 52-inch sizes, the ZT-X incorporates enhancements that improve cut quality, durability and ease of use.
The newly designed, fully fabricated cutting deck is similar to the decks found on Gravely’s commercial line of zero-turn mowers, and was designed to deliver an unmatched quality of cut. The wide discharge opening allows for even dispersal of clippings without clumping, while the constant tension deck belt system increases the life of the belt and reduces the need for adjustments.
The fully welded, tubular steel frame sets the ZT-X apart from its competition. While other residential mowers incorporate multi-piece frames, the ZT-X is built on a single piece – welded, not bolted, at every joint for added strength and stability.
The ZT-X was built with operator comfort in mind, integrating easy-to-use features, such as the dial height-of-cut selection. Other considerations like the plush high-back operator seat with armrests, fully adjustable control arms, foot-operated deck lift, cup holder, storage compartments and advanced vibration isolation were added to increase operator efficiency, while also keeping comfort a high priority.
All models are available with a rugged Kohler 7000 Series engine with Smart-Choke technology and Pro Filtration package. With Smart-Choke, there’s no need to choke the engine or set the throttle position.
“The ZT-X was designed to include several features of the quality, commercial-grade mowers that Gravely is known for, but with the residential homeowner in mind,” said Jeralyn Braun, product marketing manager, Ariens Company. “With the machine’s fully fabricated deck and welded, tubular steel frame, it’s built with Gravely toughness to tackle any job, big or small.”
The ZT-X was also designed following Gravely’s new visual brand language, which showcases crisp, chiseled features; broad, bowed surfaces; and prominent, protective elements. More of the new Gravely look will be unveiled and detailed in the coming months.
Models start at $4,005 USD MSRP. The unit comes backed by a 3-year limited consumer warranty and includes a 5-year limited warranty on the frame and deck shell.
A full slate of accessories is also available for the ZT-X, including a powered 2-bucket bagger, mulching kit, LED headlight kit and full range of tow-behind accessories.
