Do you want to mow faster? Exmark’s new Lazer Z X-Series comes with decks up to 96 inches wide, so you can cover as much ground as possible with each pass. Add in features like specialized hydrostatic components, a drive management system and engine choices from Kohler, Kawasaki and Vanguard, and you have a line of mowers that deliver everything a professional landscaper needs.
The X-Series is available with a choice of Kawasaki FX, Kohler Command Pro and Vanguard EFI engines. If you get the Vanguard, you can option it with Vanguard Oil Guard, which adds an oil cooler. This extends oil change intervals to 500 hours.
All mowers come with Exmark’s EGov and RED technology. This engine management system has profiles for different operating modes, letting you balance power against fuel economy. It also has a clutch saver mode that gently engages the deck drive. An engine hour meter comes standard, as does a massive 12 gallon fuel tank.
The Lazer Z’s UltraCut Series 6 deck is available in 60, 72 and 96 inch widths. These decks have sealed spindles that don’t require maintenance, while belt removal is completely tool free. The deck has a cutting height ranging from 1 to 5.5 inches. This height is set in ¼ inch increments using a pin board next to the operator. A MagStop electromagnetic clutch rated for 200 ft-lbs. connects the deck to the engine.
The X-Series uses 16cc Parker pumps and wheel motors designed exclusively for Exmark. These parts are integrated into a single, hose-free unit with spin-off hydraulic fluid filters. Top forward speed is 11.5 MPH, while top reverse speed is 7 MPH.
The lap bars come with steering dampers that have three adjustments, letting you dial in response. They also have two length positions to fit operators of all sizes. Exmark pairs these handles with an iso-mount seat that has multiple adjustment points.
As you’d expect, you can get kits for mulching and bagging with this mower. There’s also a turf striping kit and an anti-scalping kit available. If you need to switch between mulching and side-discharge, you can add a chute control that can be used from the operator’s position. These ZTRs can tow seeders and other lawn care trailers using the optional hitch.
All three engine manufacturers guarantee their engines for three years. Exmark guarantees the rest of the mower for 5 years or 1,500 hours. This warranty has no hour limit during the first two years of ownership.
