Kubota Zero Turn Mowers Guide
Kubota Zero Turn Lawn Mower
A Kubota Zero Turn Mower is a fairly standard type of garden lawnmower, with the exception that it works with a turning radius that is virtually zero. This is achieved largely through a system of hydraulic transmission, which allows a high degree of manoeuvrability and freedom to use in difficult or rugged terrain.
A Zero Turn Mower normally operates by using two levers to manoeuvre the mower, rather than a steering wheel. This can seem a bit odd to someone who has not used one before, but it easy to get used to.
It means the mower can operate in a much smoother function, and allow the operator to get really close to things like trees and flowerbeds in a way that they probably would not be able to with a more standard garden tractor.
A Kubota Zero Turn Mower can be used for either commercial or domestic work, and this should be taken into account when deciding which model to buy. Different attachments will work with different models, and different models will have different engine sizes, by dimensions, wheelbase treads, tire sizes and deck sizes.
The usage of the zero turn mower may also have implications for the type of warranty that can apply to the tractor, and again the should be clarified at time of purchase.
