Altoz, manufacturer of high-performance zero-turn-radius (ZTR) mowers, announced the introduction of the all-new XR series and more options for the XE series.
Thanks to a successful 2015 introduction of the XE series, the XR series will cater to the multi-acre homeowner and continue Altoz’s line expansion that includes 33 models. 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 and commercial operators maintaining larger yards or multiple-acre properties — the XE and now the all-new XR model,” said Dennis Brazier, Altoz chief executive officer. “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 even more customers.”
Using the same engineering principles and attention to detail found in Altoz’s award-winning XC model, the XR line will deliver the 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.”
In 2016, Altoz will also offer its XE series with several optional features. They include the Altoz Independent Front Suspension (IFS), the industry’s first parallel twin A-arm independent front suspension (IFS). With adjustable coil springs over gas shocks, which are fine-tuned for precise compression and rebound, the IFS system smoothes out rough terrain and allows operators to mow faster with superb comfort and control. The IFS system is designed to further enhance the performance, function and race-inspired style for which Altoz is famous. In addition, the 2016 XE series will be available with a choice of Honda, Kohler, Briggs & Stratton or Kawasaki engines.
“The XE was so well received by our dealers last year that we wanted to offer a few more options to make it an even better mower,” said Brazier.
