Bad Boy Mowers ZT Elite Zero Turn Mower - Made For The Demanding Homeowner

Made Strong For The Demanding Homeowner

Built and priced to own the demanding residential landowner market, the ZT Elite features 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 arm rests 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.
