Cub Cadet is adding steering wheel units equipped with Synchro-Steer technology to its Ultima Series lineup of zero-turns.
Synchro-Steer technology replaces traditional lap bars with a familiar steering wheel and a dual foot pedal control scheme, serving to create more stability on hills and providing optimal ease of use. Synchro-Steer technology also delivers greater efficiencies when mowing by reducing overlap and making it easier to create straight lines, the company reports. As a result, the Ultima ZTS mower offers one-hand operation with a soft-touch steering wheel, adjustable steering column and a premium cut-and-sewn high-back adjustable seat for a comfortable ride.
The Ultima ZTS joins the Ultima ZT and Ultima Electric ZT mowers, the latter two models featuring adjustable lap bar steering.
The Ultima Series offers two trim levels: the ZTS1 and ZTS2, with various deck size options: 42-, 46-, 50- and 54-in. decks. The ZTS2 mower provides maximum strength, comfort and durability with a premium engine, stronger transmission, a reinforced fabricated AeroForce deck, larger tires on stylized 10-in. rims and an adjustable high-back seat with armrests. The ZTS2 collection is the larger of the two models, with 50-, 54- and 60-in. deck sizes.
The Ultima Series mowers also come equipped with:
- A rubber floor mat to dampen vibrations;
- 15 quarter-inch deck height adjustments;
- LED headlights;
- Standard rear tow hitch;
- Premium front and back tire set; and
- Kohler and Kawasaki engines
“Rounding out the Ultima Series lineup to include steering wheel units will inspire even more homeowners to confidently opt for a zero-turn lawn mower,” says Trevor Oriold, vice president, product marketing at Cub Cadet. “Synchro-Steer technology offers the next level of control to give users straighter lines, efficient turning and greater stability on hills up to 20 degrees. It is really the ultimate zero-turn experience.”
The Ultima ZTS will be available in spring 2022, Cub Cadet reports.
