Features

Features

  • FEAR NO FIELD: No job is too big for the PRO Z 900. Power through the thickest grass in one pass with a commercial-grade 16 cc transmission and a high-horsepower Kawasaki® engine, capable of speeds up to 14 mph.
  • COVER MORE GROUND: The zero-turn steering option covers acres 10% faster than comparable lap bar units while our biggest 72” cutting deck cuts more grass per pass.
  • BUILT FOR THE LONG RUN: Equipped with the industry’s only 7-gauge deck shell, 7-gauge top and bottom reinforcements, ¼” leading edge and 5/16” reinforcements, the PRO Z 900 can take a beating and keep performing year after year.
  • ULTIMATE COMFORT: The pivoting front axle can take a beating so your body doesn’t have to. Enjoy a smooth ride on the exclusive Cub Cadet® air-ride ISO suspension seat, including customizable seat firmness, lumbar support and angle adjustment.
  • MAINTENANCE-FREE SPINDLE: Slash downtime thanks to Cub Cadet’s spindle design. Completely sealed, dual double-row ball bearings make the spindle maintenance-free for its lifetime, and anti-friction washers prevent self-tightening, meaning easier blade maintenance.
