This model is available with a 24-hp. Kawasaki or 26-hp. Kohler engine and cutting widths of 48, 54 and 60 inches. As with all Country Clipper mowers, the XLT is equipped with the company's patented stand-up deck for ease of maintenance. The XLT is available with traditional twin-lever steering or Country Clipper's industry- exclusive joystick steering, leaving operators with a free hand to move low-hanging limbs or take a sip of their favorite beverage. The 1-hand joystick control is fun to use and easy to learn. The XLT is equipped with a pivoting front axle and deck for complete terrain contouring and virtually eliminating scalping. Country Clipper/Shivvers Mfg. CUB CADET PRO Z Cub Cadet's PRO Z commercial zero-turn mowers set a new benchmark, providing more strength, performance and comfort than ever. The full lineup consists of the PRO Z 100, 500, 700 and 900 Series, designed to meet the needs of different-sized landscape crews. The PRO Z line features the industry's only triple 7-gauge-steel deck, which is now available in 48-, 54-, 60- and 72-inch cutting widths. The deck boasts 3 layers of 7-gauge steel, a rolled leading edge and side reinforcements, making it the thickest, strongest steel deck in the industry. Cub Cadet went beyond its robust product development process with the PRO Z mowers and engaged 100 professional landscapers in thousands of hours of rigorous real-world testing. Cub Cadet DIXIE CHOPPER EAGLE SERIES Dixie Chopper's new Eagle series consists of 10 different models. The Eagle is available with either a 27-hp. Kawasaki FX or 27-hp. Kohler Command EFI engine. It is also offered with either a 54- or 60-inch cutting deck. The Eagle HP offers more power with a range of engine options of up to 35 hp., as well as a 60-, 66- or 72-inch cutting deck. Both Eagle and Eagle HP models feature a deep 7-gauge shell to handle more volume when tackling tough grass. The Eagle series comes standard with a foot-operated operator-controlled discharge chute (OCDC), which allows the operator to keep both hands on the steering levers while blocking the chute on the fly. The mowers feature the InCommand console with keyless password-protected ignition and SoftStart clutch for smoother clutch engagement. The console also features a blade and job timer, tachometer, and fuel gauge. Coupled with a Parker HTG series transmission delivering smooth steering and ground speeds of up to 14 mph, the Eagle series has been built with productivity and comfort in mind. The Eagle HP comes standard with an ISO-mounted platform featuring a full- suspension seat with padded armrests, recline and lumbar support for ultimate comfort.
