Comfortable ride delivered by an operator station with adjustable controls and seat position

The operator station is designed to provide superior operator comfort for many different operators with its large foot platform, adjustable seat fore-aft position, armrests, and spring suspension to suit each operator and the adjustable motion-control levers (upper and lower positioning combined with forward and rearward tilt offers more legroom and hand positions).

The comfortable seat has two suspension springs and no-tools, fore-aft seat adjustment that can be used by the operator while seated.

Seat suspension is optimised with two long, steel springs under the seat absorb shocks when travelling over rougher areas to provide a smoother ride.

The dual beverage holder on the left fender and storage compartment on the right fender add convenience for the operator allowing room for two drink containers of various sizes for longer mowing jobs, and the storage compartment provides a safe and convenient location to store tools and supplies.

Easy-to-see-and-use electric fuel gauge, instruments, and controls

The control console includes an easy-to-read fuel gauge, located to the right of the operator station and includes the following: Digital display, ignition switch, power take-off (PTO) control, engine speed control, spring-loaded engine choke control so it is not inadvertently left ons, and space for an optional light kit switch or/and additional electric control switch.

A conveniently located fuel-sight window allows the operator to view the fuel level when approaching the vehicle from the front. The semi-clear material makes seeing how much fuel is in the tank quick and easy.

Mower deck cutting height can be adjusted from 1 in. (2.5 cm) to 4 in. (10.2 cm) in 0.25-in. (0.64-cm) increments for excellent cut quality and performance: A convenient foot-lift pedal is used to raise the mower deck for setting cut height or locking mower in the raised or transport position.

Adjustable steering levers as motion control levers are shaped and located for operator comfort and ease of control. Tracking adjustment can be made from the operator seat with the provided tool.

Safety interlocks help prevent operating in an unsafe way.


Superior cut quality and productivity from the flat-top design of Accel Deep™ Mower Decks

The 48-in. (122-cm), and 54-in. (137-cm) Accel Deep Mower Decks are a forged-steel, deep, flat-top design that delivers excellent cut quality, productivity, cleanliness, durability, and versatility. Optimal performance and dispersion of clippings is provided, even at faster mowing speeds or in tall grass.

The deep mower-deck forging delivers high productivity, which gets the job done fast. It allows room for the cut and suspended material to exit the deck quickly, reducing the amount of recutting so more power is available to process incoming grass. Even in mulching mode, cut evenness is improved compared to other designs because the additional depth allows for continuous circulation, optimal re-cutting, and an even distribution of clippings.

Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material which gives a smooth, even discharge of clippings at all mowing speeds

Cleaning a mower deck is one of the most frequent maintenance activities. The flat-top shape of the deck forging is optimal for keeping itself and the operator clean. A wash port and hose connector are provided to make cleaning the underside of the mower deck easy.

Superior durability is designed in Accel Deep Mower Decks with strong spindle pockets to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service. Accel Deep Mower Decks are also designed for maximum versatility, providing the greatest ease in changing from one mower discharge mode to another

The MulchControl system for Accel Deep Mower Decks is an optional field-installed attachment and makes mulching practical for many mowing situations because it not only does an excellent job of mulching, but it also allows the mower to be easily converted for times when it is more desirable to side discharge or collect lawn material. MulchControl is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain: the MulchControl attachment includes baffles to control the flow of material under the deck. MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings. The operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side discharge or bagging when needed. While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl still mulches about one third of the material. Therefore, the side-discharge mode is essentially a partial mulch mode. This can be an advantage when side discharging or bagging, as it helps reduce the amount of material being discharged. Other times this could work as a disadvantage:


Great performance and long life with a smooth and powerful 44.2-cu in. (724-cc) V-twin engine

Experience plenty of power and torque to handle tough mulching, mowing, and bagging conditions with the 24-hp (17.9-kW) V-twin engine. Get superior performance and reliability with a large 44.2-cu in. (724-cc) displacement engine that has many premium features including:

Easy inspection and removal of any debris that may have collected using two large cleanout ports that are integrated into the engine shroud over the cylinder heads.

Engine service times, reliability, and life are increased with the use of premium engine oil and air filtering systems, as well as the cooling design.

Protective zone around the operator is provided by the rollover protective structure (ROPS)

The spacious operator station has been designed for comfort, visibility, and ease of use with the operator controls being colour coded and designed for easy identification and operation.

The ROPS and seat belt work in conjunction to provide a protective zone around the operator which reduces the operator’s risk of being crushed under the vehicle should it overturn.

Great appearance, reliability, and performance delivered by a heavy-duty design

The attractive design includes a provision for light-emitting diode (LED) lighting: Two front lights face forward for front visibility, and side lights are positioned to provide excellent visibility of the mower deck.

A strong, welded steel frame provides solid, reliable support for the machine components and operator. The strong frame is designed to accommodate a rear hitch that can be used to pull a variety of lawn equipment

Large front caster wheels provide a smooth ride and level cut for better performance on slopes. Caster wheels also turn easily on two maintenance-free sealed ball bearings for both the spindles and the wheel axles. While, the rear tires have high-quality tread and optimum size for superior traction and smooth ride.

NOTE: Lights and Rear Hitch are standard on the Z530R and Z545R and optional on the Z515E and Z530M.

Maximise mowing efficiency with dual transmissions that offer mowing speeds up to 8 mph (12.9 km/h)

Dual unitized transmissions efficiently power the ZTrak™ mower forward and reverse and provide steering capability providing excellent hillside stability with transmissions that are set low in the vehicle.

Tow-valve controls are provided for each transmission and are located on the transmission near the expansion tanks.

Motion control levers are shaped and located for operator comfort and ease of control with adjustment controls to two different height settings and nine different fore-aft settings.

Convenient machine service includes 4-year bumper-to-bumper warranty

A convenient service interval decal provides basic maintenance information: Provides a quick reference for keeping recommended service up to date and is located under the seat for easy viewing.

To speed access to owner information web pages, a QR code is printed onto a PIN label located under the seat on the battery cover. Since each vehicle model has its own web page, the links are specific to the owner’s model. The QR code also includes the vehicle’s unique PIN which allows for additional customization of the owner information web page in the future.
