New for 2018: Exmark Updates its Line of Mowers and Turf Management Equipment

 December 28, 2017

We’re ringing in 2018 with a host of upgrades and new features to our zero-turns and turf management equipment. Our goal with upgrades is providing commercial cutters with even more dependable and efficient machines providing enhanced operator comfort, even on the longest and roughest days.

Lazer Z Diesel

The all-new Lazer Z Diesel is one of our latest innovations, including a 96-inch flex wing mower. Capable of mowing nearly 10 acres per hour, this is the most productive diesel mower we’ve built, and it will make quick work of even the largest jobs. We also raised the bar on operator comfort, cut quality and fuel efficiency. And, with the wing decks raised, the mower will fit inside most trailers designed for 72” zero-turn mowers. Lazer Z Diesel mowers are also available with 60-and 72-inch UltraCut mower decks.

Redesigned Quest Zero-Turn Mowers

Quest residential zero-turn mowers have been given an overhaul, including a new control panel providing fingertip access to vital operator controls like the throttle, PTO clutch, ignition and more. This redesign helps better protect the engine with an improved engine guard, while delivering increased airflow.  An 18” high-back operator seat on the E-Series, and deluxe 18” seats on the S-Series, help improve operator stability and comfort.

Radius S-Series with Suspended Operator Platform

The new Radius S-Series mowers with suspension platform come with a choice of 48-, 52-, or 60-inch UltraCut Series 3 cutting decks, or a 60-inch rear discharge cutting deck. The Suspension Platform helps minimize operator fatigue, while maintaining productivity, cut quality and mower durability. It also helps reduce the impact of bumps and vibration on the operator. The trailing arm design increases operator stability, while reducing lateral sway. Because the suspended operator platform and the deck travel independently, there is no reduction in cut quality which makes this mower a great choice for acreages with uneven terrain.

The Next-Generation of RED Technology

RED Technology On-Board Mower Intelligence was a game changer, allowing key systems to communicate with each other for improved performance, durability and efficiency. Next-Generation RED Technology features a new LCD monitor screen mounted on the console, where operators can monitor vital mower functions, report on-property and mowing statistics, and receive service reminders and troubleshooting information. Next-Generation RED Technology is available on select Lazer Z and Lazer Z Diesel models.

Smart Controller

Select Lazer Z S-Series models come standard with Smart Controller, an operator interface with a wealth of user data like fuel level, interlock status, PTO and total hours, maintenance reminders and machine health status. The easy-to-use interface is designed to work with mechanically governed Kohler EFI engines.

Exmark 24-Inch Stand-On Aerator

We developed a smaller version of our 30-inch Stand-On Aerator for smaller or gated properties, bringing greater productivity and flexibility to lawncare professionals. If you were previously using a smaller walk-behind aerator on gated properties, the 24-inch Stand-On easily fits through 36” gates, so you can aerate at up to 6.8 mph.  And with a new Aerator Spreader attachment, you can use your aerator to spread seed and fertilizer at the same time.

All of the above products will be available in 2018. See your local Exmark dealer for more details or for a demonstration.
