Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. (TSV), a Textron Inc. company, announced the launch of its new Jacobsen ZT900 and ZT1000 zero-turn mowers.

The ZT900 models are available with a 27-hp. Kawasaki engine or a fuel-efficient alternative from Kohler. They also feature a 54- or 60-inch cutting width and can reach ground speeds of up to 12 mph.

The ZT1000 comes equipped with either a 35-hp. Kawasaki engine or a 33-hp. fuel-efficient Kohler engine. The models feature a 60-, 66- or 72-inch cutting width and can reach ground speeds of up to 14 mph. With operator comfort in mind, the ZT1000 comes with an all-new ISO-mounted platform suspension seat as standard with padded armrests, recline, and lumbar support.

The ZT900 and ZT1000 feature the InCommand console with keyless password-protected ignition and SoftStart clutch for smoother clutch engagement.

“We are very excited to introduce these two new additions to the Jacobsen zero-turn series,” said Rachel Thompson, vice president of turf at TSV. “Quality, reliability and productivity are central to everything we design and manufacture at Textron Specialized Vehicles, and these new products are no exception. We are delighted to offer customers some fantastic new features, which will increase speed and efficiency while providing an incredibly smooth and comfortable driving experience.”

Both models feature Parker transmissions, which are compact, quiet and efficient.
