TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kubota Tractor Corporation enters the residential zero-turn mower market with the “Kubota Kommander” ZG100-Series now available at dealerships nationwide. The new series includes two E models, the ZG124E and ZG127E, and two S models, the ZG123S and ZG127S, available with 48- and 54-inch decks. Kubota’s Kommander series, introduced at GIE+Expo in late October, is designed specifically for homeowners seeking a professional-quality cut and luxury comfort features and options, with its sleek design and LED headlights.
“The Kubota Kommander ZG100-Series is Kubota’s debut into the residential zero-turn market, and we pulled out all the stops,” says Christine Chapman, assistant turf products manager for Kubota. “A lot of the Kommander’s features, like the low-profile tires and LED headlights, are similar to what you see on new luxury automobiles. These high-end features plus professional-grade mower decks make the Kommander the must-have mower for small or large property homeowners.”
Power Meets Performance
The Kubota Kommander ZG124E and ZG127E models are equipped with 24 horsepower Briggs & Stratton Pro and 27 horsepower cyclonic commercial turf vertical shaft engines. The ZG123S and ZG127S models include LED headlights and a full suspension seat. The S models are powered by 23 or 27 horsepower Kohler Courage Pro vertical shaft engines. Each model in the series is equipped with a commercial-grade hydro-gear ZT-3100 transmission that delivers maximum power to the wheels and a large 4.3 gallon fuel tank capacity.
The Kubota Kommander’s mower deck is constructed of 10-gauge welded steel. The deck’s 5-inch deep design and high blade tip speed allows more airflow through the blades, enabling a higher quality of cut at a faster rate and an even discharge of clippings. Kubota’s exclusive K-Lift mechanical one-push deck lift pedal and dial cam allow the operator to adjust to a wide range of cutting heights in quarter inch increments from 1.5 to 4.5 inches, for a superior, even cut on a variety of turf types.
Professional Quality Cut Meets Style and Comfort
The Kubota Kommander offers homeowners professional results and luxurious comfort. It features a wide operator station for first class legroom, and keyed ignition and manual choke-control on the control panel for convenient one-handed starting. Four storage compartments and two cup holders help keep the operator prepared for longer mowing projects. The Kubota Kommander features a deluxe, cushioned 18-inch high back seat for optimal comfort. Large 22-inch, low-profile wide rear tires not only add style, but also reduce ground contact pressure, providing a smooth ride on uneven terrain.
Safety First With Kubota
The Kubota Kommander is designed with operator safety in mind. Its low center of gravity increases stability, and standard safety features include a roll-over protective structure (ROPS), retractable seat belt, a flexible spring-loaded plastic discharge shield and four safety interlocks. Large rear tire tread is designed for better traction and performance, and the LED headlights add increased operator visibility.
One-Stop Manufacturer Warranty
Kubota Kommander Series mowers are covered by a comprehensive manufacturer warranty of four (4) years or 300 hours on both the mower and the engine.
