The Cub Cadet Z-Force S60 Zero Turn Rider is the largest machine in the Z-Force S Rider series. It is powered by a big 26 hp Courage engine. This 2 cylinder motor is built by Kohler. Using a Dual Hydro Gear ZT 2800 transmission, this Cub Cadet is an automatic. However this transmission allows each rear wheel to be operated independently of the other which is what facilitates it’s ability to execute zero radius turns. Smaller models in the same series as the Z Force S 60 include the Cub Cadet Z-Force S48LP and the Cub Cadet Z-Force S54 Zero Turn Rider lawn mowers.
One thing that a lot people find is that the Cub Cadet Z-Force S60 lawn mower is a very heavy machine. It weighs an astonishing 358 kg (790 lbs) which is huge for a lawnmower that has a cutting width of just 60 inches. The wheels that support the weight of the Z Force S 60 are fortunately big enough to distribute the load into the ground without leaving unsightly thread marks. The rear tires measure 20×10-8 (20 inch diameter, 10 inch width, 8 inch rim diameter). The front wheels are understandably much smaller, measuring 13×5-6 (13 inch diameter, 5 inch width, 6 inch rim diameter).
The top speed of the Cub Cadet Z-Force S60 Zero Turn Rider lawnmower is 12.9 kph (8mph) when traveling forward and 6.4 kph (4 mph) when it’s reversing. This makes it very efficient when cutting large lawns when compared to the likes of most tractor lawn mowers. The mower deck on the Z Force S 60 mower has a construction that is quite similar to other models in the Z-Force S series. If you own one of these machines, then please let others know what they should expect from it.
