Cub Cadet electrifies residential lawn care line
Lithium-ion battery line features zero turns, tractors, walk-behind mowers and hand-held power equipment
KITCHENER, Ont. — Cub Cadet is launching a full electric lineup.
“Our outdoor power equipment is built to perform, mow after mow,” said Ed Zynomirski, Vice President of Independent Retail in a statement. “Our gas models are trusted because of that commitment, and we are so proud to announce a new lineup of electric-models that are powerful enough to uphold it.”
Responding to increasing customer momentum behind electric outdoor power equipment, and building upon the legacy and reputation of their gas-powered products, Cub Cadet’s electric lineup uncompromisingly provides all the tools needed to fine-tune your lawn – no matter the size. And with no need for gas, oil changes, spark plugs, belts or pulleys, users can also expect to achieve that Cub Cadet Signature Cut with even less maintenance.
“We’ve taken our top-selling models – like the Ultima Series Zero-Turn Mower, and the XT Enduro Series Tractor – and redesigned them as fully-electric lithium-ion units,” says Zynomirski. “Both new electric counterparts – the Ultima ZT1 42E and the XT1 Enduro LT42E – offer up to two acres of cut time with no power fade, require less maintenance, are 64%* quieter, and are backed by a strong four-year battery and three-year full machine warranty.”
According to Zynomirski, modern comforts have also been preserved, like automotive-inspired design and steering, automatic transmission, a USB charging port, adjustable seating and cruise control.
