They are engineered to mow precisely and help prevent turf damage – even on sloping terrain.

The two machines powered by either a Kawasaki or Kohler engine also feature patented Synchro Steer technology to retain full control of the front wheels. Steering and drive control are synchronised to help control the speed and rotation direction of each rear wheel, whatever the position of the front wheels.

This ability to control all four wheels with a steering wheel and steerable front wheels minimises the turf being churned up by the wheels or crabbing on banks, less experienced operators can benefit from the ease of use and amazing manoeuvrability of this machine.

Comfort is at the forefront of the machine’s design thanks to the high back seat with armrests and individually adjustable suspension.

The robust steel frame is designed for durability even on challenging terrain and the Hydro drive system helps provide a smooth mowing experience. The machines will mow an area of up to 13,000m²h with cutting deck widths of 122cm / 48” and 137cm / 54”.

At Cub Cadet we trust our XZ8 series to perform with maximum durability and robustness and offer a warranty of 3 years or up to 500 working hours (whichever comes first) – for commercial or private use as well as offering a dealership service that delivers true advantages to you and your business
