560Z Series 560Z - 24/52 (Optional Cargo Bed)



Professional-grade plus utility. The 560Z Zero Turn Mower is easy-to-use for homeowners but comes packed with all of the enhanced features you'd expect from a commercial-style zero turn mower. With welded, all-steel construction and Hydro-Gear® ZT-3200® Transaxles, the 560Z has the rugged durability needed to take on demanding terrain and tough jobs. Powered by a premium Briggs & Stratton® Commercial Series or Kawasaki® FR730V engine, the 560Z mows grass in no time with a wide 52'' or 61'' mower deck. Plus, it even features an integrated cargo bed† with rear dumping capabilities for added utility.

  • Simple Height-of-Cut: Convenient deck-lift easily adjusts grass cut height from 1.5" to 4.5".
  • Durable Hydro-Gear® Transaxles: Built for high-performance applications, the Hydro-Gear® ZT-3200® hydrostatic transaxles deliver a smooth grass cutting experience while you are changing directions and speeds.
  • Fast Mowing: Wide, 52" or 61" fabricated mower decks made from thick 10-gauge steel mow grass in no time with speeds up to 9 mph. Welded and reinforced for years of repeat mowing and are also backed by a limited lifetime warranty*.
  • Added Versatility: The integrated cargo bed† dumps to the rear for easy clean-out and provides on-tho-go versatility for dirt-hauling, tool-toting and flower-delivering.
  • High-Performance Briggs & Stratton® Engine: Built for harsh zero turn mowing conditions, the Briggs & Stratton® Commercial Series Engine has what it takes to perform including an advanced debris management system and beefed up cylinder block.
  • Powerful Kawasaki® Engine: Built for power, the Kawasaki® FR Series Engine offers smooth power output and outstanding durability in a compact design.
  • Intuitive Controls: Easy-to-use lawn mower controls, including a fuel-level indicator, are all within reach. A wide-mouth gas fill ensures you can easily fill gasoline without any spills.
  • Rugged Durability: Commercial-inspired components such as rugged 1.5'' x 2'' steel front axles, high-performance transaxles and a wrap-around steel bumper ensure this mower is built to handle tough mowing applications.
