ZT Elite 54’’ Kohler 7000 Series


Our Most Popular Mower Model for Good Reasons

There’s a reason the ZT elite zero turn lawn mower has long been our biggest-selling mower. Built great, cuts great, and all for a great price. We never stop making the ZT elite residential zero turn lawn mower better, stronger, and more comfortable, and with our patented front suspension, there are even more reasons for retaining its elite status and its elite value.

The Industry Standard of Zero Turn Mowers

Dual high-performance hydro gear 3100 integrated drive systems for reliable, self-contained power and performance. We pair these powerful drives with higher horsepower-to-class, reliable engines that perform year after year, season after season. It’s power and performance at an unbeatable value.

Made Strong for the Demanding Homeowner

Built and priced to own the demanding residential landowner market, the zt elite features a strong 2˝ x 2˝ all-steel rail frame for its backbone. Industry-leading 3/8˝ steel front forks are a bad boy construction hallmark as is the solid steel, all-welded deck. Formed from tough 7-gauge steel with reinforced edges, the unique baffling system maximizes airflow for greater grass lift and a cleaner cut. And it all rides on a lower center of gravity for better traction.

Keeping You Comfortably in Control

Our cushioned comfort seat features padded armrests for a relaxed operating posture. Steering is tighter and smoother with our steering dampening system for better response and maneuverability. With our adjustable, left or right-side deck lift pedal, you can easily dial in the perfect deck height for a perfect cut time and time again. Then we top it off with class-leading fuel capacity — 6.5 gallons — and lots of deep storage, plus a cup holder for your favorite mowing beverage.
