CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Designed to meet the exacting standards of lawn care professionals, the new Husqvarna P-ZT line of zero turn mowers present professionals an opportunity to increase their productivity without breaking the bank.
"Recent economic conditions have affected a number of lawn care professionals and as a result, they have made do with their existing equipment," said Sean Dwyer, Global Product Manager, Zero Turn Mowers and Specialty Turf products. "The new P-ZT line was introduced to give landscapers the chance to increase their fleet of mowers at an affordable price and still get the performance they expect."
The P-ZT borrows from many of the innovations that made the PZ Series so successful. The heart of the P-ZT series for instance is the same rugged 2" x 3" tube style frame from the PZ series. Extreme-duty front caster assemblies include pneumatic tires as standard equipment and flat-free versions are available as an option.
The fabricated cutting deck is constructed from twin 11-gauge steel sheet construction which equates to a 1/4" thick top deck area for added structure and spindle support. Cast aluminum blade spindles feature tapered roller bearing construction for increased service life and the top idler system is borrowed from the PZ series to ensure extended belt life. The cutting deck also includes heavy-duty scalp roller mounts and a rubber discharge shield.
To meet the reliability and performance expectation of the ground drive system, the new P-ZT mowers utilize commercial-duty integrated ZT3400 transmissions with 12cc pumps. This allows smooth operation, speeds up to 10 mph and reduced potential for hose and fitting leaks. The integrated design also creates a cleaner and wider open area under the seat to improve serviceability. The new drive system carries a 2-year commercial warranty.
From the comfort side, the P-ZT series utilizes the same operator interface as the PZ series. Careful control placement, ergonomic steering levers and full adjustability of seat and steering controls allows the unit to be tailored for any user. The standard seat is commercial duty, two-tone vinyl with EVC (elastomeric vibration control). An optional full-suspension seat is also available.

The P-ZT4822 and P-ZT5224 offer more compact commercial mowing solutions for smaller areas and decrease the amount of space necessary on the trailer and in the shop.
