Altoz, a Greenbush, Minn.-based manufacturer of high-performance zero-turn mowers, recently expanded its residential market offerings with the addition of the new XR series. Dealers will receive a hands-on introduction to the XR series during GIE+EXPO 2015 at the Kentucky Exposition Center Oct. 21-23 in Louisville, Ky.
Thanks to the successful 2015 introduction of the XE series, the XR series will cater to the multi-acre homeowner and continue Altoz’s surge into the residential market. Both the XE and XR will have the option of Honda GXV and Kohler engines, and the XE will continue to have the option of Vanguard and Kawasaki engines in 2016.
“This season, Altoz will have two great model lines engineered specifically for homeowners with larger yards or multiple-acre properties — the XE and now the all-new XR model,” said Altoz CEO Dennis Brazier. “The XE was a strong addition for our dealers last year, and we expect the XR to be even more successful. With having an option of two great engines to choose from, we believe these two models will help dealers reach the discerning homeowner or that prosumer.”
Utilizing the same engineering principles and attention to detail found in Altoz’s award-winning XC model, the new XR model line will deliver a precision cut, reliability, durability and comfort that have become synonymous with the Altoz brand. Two unique models — XR 480 and XR 540 — make up the XR line. Durable twin Hydro-Gear ZT-2800 commercial transmissions are featured in both models, which are available in 48- and 54-inch cutting-deck widths. Large, 20-inch rear tires and a high-back seat combine for a comfortable ride.
“It’s exciting to add Honda GXV and Kohler engines to our lineup — they have a very high satisfaction rate,” added Brazier. “Offering consumers options is also important to Altoz. With Kohler, Kawasaki, Briggs & Stratton and Honda, consumers will have a choice of quality engines.”
A line of accessories for the XR models will be coming soon. The entire line of Altoz zero-turn mowers are proudly designed by a team of dedicated engineers and manufactured in the United States. For more information, visit Altoz.com.
