This season, keep your lawn in top condition with Kubota’s outstanding range of ride-on mowers

Whether it’s a large lawn or extensive grounds, Kubota’s ride on mowers deliver unmatched performance, efficiency, reliability and a professional finish.

When you need the ability to take on large areas of lawn as well as manoeuvre effortlessly around trees and flower beds, Kubota’s Z122R zero-turn ride-on mower really comes into its own.

With a four-acre site to maintain, including grass playing fields and lawns, Horncastle Primary School’s site manager Ed Crawford wanted better control of the mowing cycle than relying on an expensive local contractor. With advice from his local Kubota dealer, Irelands recommended the Z122R as the ideal solution.

Ed says: “We’ve got the flexibility to mow when the grass needs it, rather than on a contractor’s fixed schedule, and at a time and in conditions that suit us.”

Powered by a 19hp petrol engine, the Z122R features a 1.07m (42") twin-blade rotary deck featuring Kubota’s zero turn system easily operated with a pair of levers for precise control of forward and reverse and steering, allowing it to effortlessly mow around tricky areas such as flowerbeds.

“It’s very manoeuvrable, but can really move on and cover the ground on a longer run,” Ed explains. “The grass has always been cut with a cylinder mower, but I actually think the rotary is doing a better job.”

The Z122R is designed for comfort, featuring an adjustable high back seat, plenty of legroom with a wide foot pan and ergonomically positioned controls placed for quick, easy access. It even includes a cup holder for long mowing days.

“The Kubota has a good, comfortable operator platform and there’s a clear view over the deck,” Ed concludes. “The deck lifts up and there’s a hose slot for easy cleaning out, and on our use so far, fuel consumption looks low.”

Achieve a precision cut like a professional with this great value, high-performance, versatile mower.
