Lazer Z S-Series Now Features a Smart Controller

 January 29, 2018

At Exmark, we know machine downtime causes real problems for commercial lawn operations. Our new Lazer Z S-Series mowers, equipped with a Smart Controller, provide critical systems information in real-time, reducing downtime by alerting you to any issues with the machine and upcoming maintenance.

The Smart Controller is a large display with a LED status light that notifies the operator if a malfunction has occurred. When the machine is operating normally, the light is green; a red light indicates an active error. An alternating green/orange light indicates a clutch reset is necessary. Other on-screen alerts provide information on fuel level, engine temperature, oil pressure, and charging system status. The Smart Controller also includes a Limp Mode feature, disabling the cutting system and preventing damage to the mower in the event of a critical system error.

The Smart Controller replaces the traditional hour meter, integrating maintenance reminders with run time, so that you know when oil changes, transmission service and other engine maintenance are due. As regular maintenance is crucial to keeping mowers running, maintenance reminders are displayed on a large, easy-to-read digital screen.

In addition to reducing downtime and preventing machine damage due to malfunctions, the Smart Controller can make tracking mower maintenance much easier than manually tracking each machine’s hours against the recommended maintenance schedule. Much like the service reminders on your vehicle, you’re warned of upcoming maintenance needs and can plan for them in advance, rather than waiting until after you’ve hit the hour mark.

Since we know you mow no matter the weather conditions, the Smart Controller is weatherproof to provide dependable operation in rain and extreme temperatures. The ignition key switch is sealed, as is the non-contact PTO switch.

The Smart Controller is available on Lazer Z S-Series models with Kohler EFI gasoline engines and your choice of a 52-, 60- or 72-inch UltraCut Series 4 deck, and on the propane Lazer Z S-Series models, with a 60- or 72-inch UltraCut Series 4 deck. The EFI engines deliver efficient and steady performance, and the propane option will help reduce fuel cost. And, of course, Smart Controller-equipped Lazer Z models provide unmatched operator comfort and Exmark’s signature quality of cut.
