In Stock

The Z525E Residential ZTrak Zero-Turn Mower with 122  (48in.) Deck

The Z525E offers quality, performance and comfort, along with exceptional manoeuvrability and trimming capability. The Z525E is equipped with the new Accel Deep deck that can side-discharge, mulch or collect with a 6.5 bu. rear bagger.

The Accel Deep deck has a single-piece stamped steel shell specially shaped to maximise airflow for optimal cut quality, especially at faster speeds. What makes the Accel Deep deck unique is its 11.4 cm (4.5 in.) deep shell that extends all the way around, and its smooth shape. The deep shell maximises airflow to lift grass up for the most level cut possible.
