Snapper has added the new 360Z XT zero-turn lawn mower to its lineup of residential zero-turn mowers. Billed as “one of the toughest and commercially-inspired riding lawn mowers,” the 360Z XT is available with 52- and 61-inch (132- and 155-centimeter) cutting decks. (Snapper’s existing 360Z model tops out at 52 inches.) Snapper brand owner Briggs & Stratton has also added the Snapper Pro SW45 walk-behind mower to the Snapper Pro Commercial family designed for landscaping professionals.
The 360Z XT Up Close
The 360Z XT improves on the current 360Z model’s top ground speed of 8 mph by adding an extra 0.5 mph. Briggs & Stratton says the combination of the 360Z XT’s larger deck sizes and its Briggs & Stratton Commercial Series Engine will help users cover more terrain in less time. The new mower also features a durable all-steel frame, large tires designed to provide superior traction, a bright LED work light to assist in conditions with poor visibility, and an 18-inch (45.7 cm) cut and sew seat. The current 360Z is available in numerous configurations spanning 36- (91-cm) to 52-inch cutting widths and 1.5- to 4.5-inch (3.8- to 11.4-cm) cutting heights. Add to that a Hydro Gear ZT2800 transmission and gross power engine output of 25 horsepower.
Walk Like A Pro
The Pro SW45 joins the SW15, SW25, and SW35 walk-behind mowers. It comes with 48- (122-cm), 52-, and 61-inch cutting decks and offers Kawasaki FX engines and a Hydro-Gear ZT-3400 transmission. Features include cast-iron spindles, enhanced component guards, a hydraulic quick-fill system, a cruise control bar, and an optional one- or two-wheel sulky accessory that allows operators to ride behind.
