A Kubota zero turn mower is a type of Kubota garden tractor that is used on residential and small holdings as a particular effective way of cutting grass and of land maintenance generally.
A Kubota garden tractor can similarly be one of a number of small tractors used for general gardening and land maintenance work. Kubota recommend a number of residential tractors in their garden tractor range, and have a wide range of general tractors available that can also be considered at Kubota garden tractors.
The advantage of a Kubota zero turn mower as a type of garden tractor is in the name, that there is relatively little if any turning needed. This type of activity is especially useful on land or gardens where there are particularly tight areas that need maintenance or cutting. A more traditional Kubota garden tractor can be difficult to manoeuvre especially around things such as trees or land generally where it is difficult to access.
The issue of a zero turn mower is a key one when looking at and considering more general safety implications of a Kubota garden tractor.
Safe operation of a Kubota garden tractor is especially important, given that many people will consider a zero turn mower as more of a household accessory, rather than as a piece of agricultural machinery, and may not take the same safety precautions, or have the same safety mindset that they would otherwise have. There are a number of important safety factors to consider.

It is important when using a Kubota garden tractor to understand the controls and instruments that determine how the tractor operates, especially understanding how to stop the tractor quickly and in an emergency. It is important for anyone operating the tractor to be a responsible adult, and to have enough awareness to be able to make decisions regarding themselves, the tractor and anyone else in the vicinity at short notice.
When operating a Kubota garden tractor or a zero turn mower, it is important always to wear well fitted belted clothing, such as a tracksuit or a boiler suit. Loose clothing should not be worn, this can include scarves etc. Then the issue of clothing with regard to safety of a Kubota garden tractor is actually very important and one that should not be taken lightly. If inappropriate clothing is worn, you can easily get caught in the mechanics of the tractor, potentially causing serious damage to the operator of the tractor and potentially to the Kubota garden tractor itself, and anyone else in the vicinity of where it is operating.
