Flip the key switch, ignite the engine and one thing is painstakingly obvious, the Kubota ZD1211L-3-72 is powerful. Rated at 24.8 horsepower, the diesel engine lets you reach a top speed of 10.6 mph as you control the zero turn with its dual operation levers. Three blades sit under the ACS Kubota Pro Deck and with a one to five-inch cutting height, you’ll give your lawn the proper trim it deserves as you work through the 12.9-gallon fuel tank. The ZD1211L-3-72 isn’t just a sleek zero turn with a low profile, it’s got the power to take on whatever you throw its way.
For responsive power, without drive belts and pulleys, the drive shaft smoothly transfers power from the engine to the deck. Shaft drive also requires less maintenance and provides greater dependability.
