The Poulan Pro 540ZX zero turn lawn mower is one of the larger zero turn machines available from Poulan Pro that also includes the Poulan Pro 541ZX. Other machines in this range that have a smaller cutting width and less power include both the Poulan Pro 380ZX and the Poulan Pro 460ZX zero turn lawnmowers. The engine powering the 540 ZX is a 2 cylinder Professional Series manufactured by Briggs and Stratton. This gasoline powered engine uses a Hydro-Gear EZT dual hydrostatic transmission to bring power to the rear wheels. This Hydro-Gear transmission allows the driver to operate each rear wheel separately from the other which is what allows it to make zero radius turns. The Hydro-Gear transmission gives the lawnmower a top speed of 10.5 kph (6.5 mph).

The engine transfers power to the blades on the mower deck through an electric clutch. The mower deck on the Poulan Pro 540ZX has 6 different cutting heights from a low of 1.5 inches above the ground to a high of 4 inches above the ground. On the edge of the mower deck, you will notice 4 very small wheels. These are anti-scalping wheels which follow the contours of the ground, forcing the deck on the 540 ZX to follow the contours of the ground which prevents it from scraping the lawn if the ground happens to be fairly uneven.

The high back seat on the Poulan Pro 540ZX is vinyl covered which means that it won’t easily degrade. Looking after the 540ZX zero turn lawnmower is fairly easy thanks to the hourmeter that comes with it as standard. This lets you know exactly when you next need to bring it for a servicing. The 540ZX lawn mower weighs in at 290.3 kg (640 lbs). It comes with a 2 year warranty for homeowners purchasing it for personal use.
