Buyer’s Guide to Exmark Radius Series Zero Turn Riders

Buyer's Guide to Exmark Radius Series Zero Turn Riders

Exmark Radius Series Zero Turn Riders

Exmark Radius series zero turn riders are available in an E, S and X series.

Exmark Radius E Series zero turn riders

The Radius E series is Exmark’s entry level to the Radius line. With all the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders there are very heavy-duty frames, taking a lot of them from the commercial side. Exmark is the leading commercial motor manufacturer. They put a lot of these same features into their mowers which really are designed for both residential and commercial application.

The E series is equipped with a heavy frame, double sided heavy-duty yokes, big heavy bearing assemblies for added strength and durability, and the wide smooth front tires to eliminate a lot of turfing when you’re turning in those soft conditions. There is a tube or jack stand on the front of the mowers next to the front left tire. This is designed to attach a jack with a single pin and raise your mower deck to get underneath for cleaning or changing your blades.

The step through design allows taller operators to climb on the front and Exmark added a non-skid pad on the deck in case you prefer to enter from the side to get onto the mower. Exmark has done a lot to help with maintenance and cleaning. The floor pan flips up and can be easily removed if you want to clean your deck. The Radius E series also has nice rubber mounts which help absorb some of the vibration to your feet.

Another nice feature with the E series, they have a floor pan assembly system that is rubber mounted. Sometimes you may hear the mower deck rattling and shaking, this system helps stabilize that deck to give it a truer height of cut and to eliminate a lot of that vibration. Also, on the maintenance side, to get to your belts on the side Exmark has an assembly that just slides off. These mowers are also designed with heavy-duty commercial pulleys, pulley assemblies, a heavier belt that has Kevlar for added strength and durability. It’s also heat resistant and gives you much longer life than your conventional belts.

Exmark calls the deck a Series 3 deck and it’s a 3 inch deep deck, and much heavier deck than most fabricated decks. It’s fully welded versus tack welded for strength and durability. With anti-scalp rollers in the front of the mower, if you hit a high spot they help raise your deck and are adjustable depending on the height of cut you’re mowing at. Large drive tires allow you to mow at 8 mph and gives you a smooth ride.

The Exmark Radius E series mowers sport a nice comfortable seat that’s easy to adjustable with a single lever. These mowers probably have the nicest deck cutting system adjustment on the market. There’s a foot pedal to raise your deck up and a pin to pull that is held in with a magnet. To set your height in quarter inch increments from 1 to 5 inches, just drop the pin into the desired setting and set it back in place.

All the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders are available in 48, 52, and 60-inch mower decks and because these are designed for commercial applications they use upgraded hydrostatic pumps for extended life, durability, and faster ground speeds. The control panel is all to the operator’s right, very easy to operate, and color-coded. Red is for your throttle and black for your choke. These mowers come standard with an hour meter. This hour meter has four different functions, it has a safety system where the machine levers must be in neutral, the PTO system disengaged, and the parking brake set with the operator in the seat. So, if you left your mower the control panel will flash to tell you that’s why the machine won’t turn over and tells you to turn your PTO switch off.

Also, these machines have a 12-volt charging light so if there was a problem with the charging system it’ll tell you on the control panel. The Radius E series have an electric PTO clutch for ease of operation and standard belt life and all the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders do come standard with a 12-volt plug. The Exmark Radius E series uses Exmark’s engine designed for commercial application. A lot of great commercial features include a V-Twin overhead valve design, developed in twenty four and a half horsepower, nice large air filter assembly, 2 barrel carburetor for more consistent performance, and like all Exmark engines they have the no tool oil change system. You just pull your tube to drain your oil and you have easy access to check your oil with a dipstick to make sure it’s set to the proper level.

Since commercial operators like to be able to access everything very easily you have a fuel filter so it’s easy to see if you did have some bad fuel or if you have a dirty filter and easy to get to your battery if you should have any maintenance or battery issues. All the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders have the roll bar as a standard feature. This provides added safety for the operator. There is also a seat belt you can utilize with the roll bar. If you have a storage issue and don’t have the height, it’s very easy to just twist the two knobs on the inside of the bar and fold the roll bar down to get it into a storage space. It’s very easy to pop back up and lock back into place as well.

Exmark Radius E Series zero turn riders

Some of the key differences from the Radius E series to the S series include the engine which has a larger canister air filtering system to give you much longer times between having to clean your air filter assembly. The mowers got to a 20-inch high-back seat versus the 18 inches with additional padding for additional comfort. There are also larger drive tires which are 23 inches instead of the 22. This increases your ground speed from 8 mph to 9 mph, so it’s a little more productive.

To be able to mow at those higher speeds Exmark added a suspension platform system so you have a spring in the front and two in the back. Your whole frame assembly is suspended by the springs so the idea behind this is on rough terrain it gives you added comfort, and this is fully adjustable based on the weight of the operator. In position five this would give you the most suspension whereas a one would be used by a lighter operator or if the terrain is not real rough so it’s not quite as stiff as the position five. This system gives you a range of adjustments to make based on your conditions and the weight of the operator.

When you get on the machine the whole platform is suspended so it gives you more of a rocking effect to eliminate the jarring and it really helps people with back issues, it provides much more comfort.

Exmark Radius X Series zero turn riders

To round out the Radius line is the X series. This is the top of the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders line. What they do here is go to a larger drive tire as well, a 24-inch tire to give you ground speeds up to 10 mph. The tires are exceptionally productive, but the big thing is they go to a Series 4 deck versus a Series 3. The Series 3 is structurally as durable as a Series 4, but the Series 4 really built Exmark’s reputation as a premium commercial mower brand. The Series 4 deck is four inches deep to give you more airflow under the deck for those heavy mowing conditions so you’re able to maintain those high ground speeds and those heavy conditions and still receive an exceptional quality cut.

Also, when you go into the X series there is a knob on the front of the seat. These mowers have an adjustable suspension seat, just dial in the weight as shown on the dial and that gives you a full suspension right in the seat. It’s exceptionally comfortable, high back, a lot of padding for additional support, exceptional for those higher ground speeds and tougher mowing conditions.

To the back of the machines there is the Kawasaki FX series engine. The FX is the commercial grade Kawasaki engine that has been a proven performer for years in the commercial industry. This engine comes standard on the Radius X series zero turns. There’s also a canister filter but it’s a much larger canister. There again, they are true commercial mowers, so it gives you long run times even in those dusty, tough mowing conditions before you have to clean the air filter cartridge.

All the Exmark Radius series zero turn riders are available with mulch kits, striping kits for the back, and different bagging options from a simple side bag to two or three bag deluxe bagging systems with power assists for exceptional bagging performance.

Buyer’s Guide to Cub Cadet Enduro XT1 and XT2 Lawn Tractors

Buyer's Guide to Cub Cadet Enduro XT1 and XT2 Lawn Tractors

Cub Cadet redesigned their Enduro XT1 and XT2 lawn tractor line from the ground up for exceptional strength, durability and operator comfort. Cub Cadet Enduro XT1 lawn tractors are offered in a 42-inch, 46 inch, and 50 inch mower deck. Both the Enduro XT1 and XT2 tractors are on the same chassis so you’re not getting any less tractor by going to the XT1.

Cub Cadet Enduro XT1 lawn tractors

Some of the differences on the XT1 are they start with a 42-inch deck with a single cylinder engine where from this model forward they go into a twin cylinder. You get smoother operation and increased torque with a twin cylinder engine but the single cylinder engine for a smaller lawn will perform and do a great job.

Other Enduro tractors come with a five-year frame and front axle warranty and they’re able to do that because they’ve gone to a cast iron front axle. This cast iron versus stamped out hollowed steel axle is exceptionally durable. There’s not going to be any breakage with this heavy cast iron front axle. Cub Cadet also redesigned the ergonomics of the tractor, so some nice features include ease of getting on and off the tractor, a lever to slide your seat back and forth, and as the seat slides back it also goes up so to accommodate a taller operator and offer increased legroom.

All your controls are easily accessible. Cub Cadet Enduro tractors feature a key switch, throttle positioning, and brake and transmission operation pedal. The transmission operation pedal is a hydrostatic drive transmission which is a fluid drive system so it’s like an automatic transmission in the car. The way this is designed, the further you push forward on the pedal the faster the machine goes. When you release the pedal, it will return to neutral, and for reverse you push on the opposite pedal.

Cub Cadet also added a nice feature of cruise control. Push the pedal, push down on your cruise control lever and it’ll lock in that position so if you have a lot of straight areas and don’t want to hold your foot on the pedal you can lock the cruise. Release the cruise either by tapping the pedal or you can just tap your brake pedal.

There are controls for your height of cut. Your height of cut is adjustable from one to four inches. It has a spring assisted lever so with one finger you can raise your mower deck up and down. You can set the height in quarter inch increments.

On the LX42, to engage the blades, you simply push forward and lock in position. Another nice feature with this Cub Cadet, with all the lawn tractors on the market now, they have a great safety feature where if you do mow in reverse it kicks the blades. Once you’re sure that everybody’s inside Cub Cadet has a reverse switch and what this does is just by pushing the button each time you mow your tractor will be able to mow in reverse. During the whole time you’re mowing you can mow in reverse so make sure everything and everyone is safe before you use that mow in reverse switch.

Cub Cadet Enduro XT2 lawn tractors

As we mentioned the XT1 and XT2 lawn tractors are on the same chassis. The key difference when you go into the XT2 series, from the front you’ll notice the front bumper is standard. It gives you added protection if you hit something and protects the front grill and front hood. The XT2 tractors go to a turf master tire. This will give you increased traction and durability. Cub Cadet upgraded the battery on the XT2 models for longer life and better cold-weather starts, and in your front axle they use a bearing which is typically found on much higher priced tractors. This bearing in the front axle will give you much longer life. The bushing on the XT1 models is easily replaced but this bearing really should last for the life of the tractor.

Cub Cadet also added armrests. These can be added to XT1 models but is standard for XT2 tractors to give you a little added comfort. The XT2 models have larger engines so you have an increase in performance. Another nice feature is the easy maintenance. Cub Cadet has a color-coded oil drain plug and a color-coded dipstick for checking your oil; it’s easy to spot. When you need change that oil, there’s no tools required. Just push the hood forward, pop the cap off the oil drain, twist the yellow part, and the oil will drain.

The engines on the Cub Cadet Enduro tractors are all protected by an oil filter. This oil filter is easy to access, you don’t have to remove anything because it’s right out in the open.  These tractors are available in 42, 46, 50, and 54-inch deck sizes. As you go into the 46 inch and larger another feature Cub Cadet added is electric PTO clutch. Other models have a lever to push to engage the mower, but these tractors have a switch. Just pull the switch to engage the mower and push to disengage. The key advantage is you get longer belt life.

Whenever you have idler pulley with a mechanical engagement, when you’re pushing the lever it’s swinging an idler pulley over to tighten the belt and you get little bit of belt slap and that’s where you will get a little more wear to the belt. With an electric PTO system, the belt is tight all the time so you’re just engaging a clutch to start and end and stop the blade so that’s going to give you longer belt life for your mower drive belt.

As you move up the LX46, Cub Cadet offers some enhanced engine and deck features such as an electronic fuel-injected engine or EFI for short. The electronic fuel injection gives you enhanced features including a little better fuel economy and better cold weather starts. Also, this model comes with a fabricated mower deck. This is what you’ll find on a lot of commercial equipment, a deck fabricated out of steel, fabricated and welded so it’s structurally a stronger deck. If this deck is kept clean it should last the life of the tractor. If you have a little rougher terrain or a little tougher condition this deck is just a exceptionally durable deck and not found on a lot of lawn tractors.

As we move up Cub Cadet has what they call SLX which stands for “super lawn tractor.” This is available in 54-inch mower decks and the first thing to note is the much larger tires. Typically, this tire size is found on a garden tractor. The advantage you have with this is if you have rough terrain, those bigger tires give you a little smoother ride. If you’re planning on adding a snow blade or snow blower it gives you better traction with the larger tires. To handle the larger tires Cub Cadet upgraded the transmission for a longer life and you still get that tight turning radius and exceptional performance.

Cub Cadet Enduro XT2 lawn tractors are very easy to operate. To round out the XT2 line Cub Cadet has the GX series. The GX is a garden tractor and the advantage you have with the garden tractor is an upgraded transmission. The garden tractor is designed for heavier use. The GX54 comes with a differential lock. To engage, just push down on the pedal with the heel of your foot. This will lock both wheels together. Differential lock is very useful in snow conditions, it gives you increased traction. Additionally, if you have some areas that are a little slippery on your lawn and you need to increase traction to eliminate that tire slip that’s where differential lock comes in handy. This feature is available on the GX models in the XT2 line.

Cub Cadet offers many attachments for their Enduro XT1 and XT2 series tractors. A bagger is a very popular attachment. It’s very easy to take on and off, you have the chute clipped on to your mower deck and a couple of wing nuts holding it in place. Simply remove the chute and the nuts to take the bag off. It’s a twin bag design, with a nice clear opening so you can see when your bags are full. Just pop the top of the bagger open, it flips up so it’s out of the way and there’s a couple bags to just slide inside so it’s easy to dump and keep mowing.

For spring cleanup when you get all the grass and leaves leftover from the fall, you can pick them up using this bagger attachment. You can bag leaves in this attachment but they’re not going to be cut up as fine so sometimes what people will do is go through and cut the grass without the bagger, chop the leaves up a little bit, then put the bag on and pick up the leaves. This way you’ll pack more into the bag but you can bag the leaves whole as well.

Another option for spring cleanup is a mulch kit. The mulch kit is designed for both grass and leaves, it’s just a plate that covers your discharge and different blades, mulching blades are available. If you want to just mulch your grass or for mulching leaves the kit is a very popular option on the Cub Cadet Enduro lawn tractors.

As we mentioned, Cub Cadet offers snow attachments as well, both the snow blade and a snow blower. Cub Cadet came out with a new feature about a year ago called the Fast Attach System. With the Fast Attach System there’s a latch and lock system so you can easily attach, easily take off and attach different attachments. You can add your bagger to the Fast Attach System, there’s a fertilizer spreader, and a little cargo hauler for when you want to haul things around your yard like topsoil.

Cub Cadet also recently came out with a sprayer, so you can add a little sprayer for some added versatility to your tractor. This year Cub Cadet introduced, on a couple of select models, a tool-free blade change. If you’re switching back and forth from your standard blade to a mulch blade or in the area where you need to replace your blades a little more often there’s no bolts needed, you just push the collar forward and drop your blade off. Again, it’s very easy to change blades. That’s something new on a couple of models but you’ll probably see that on more models going forward. It’s a nice little feature.

Buyer’s Guide to Cub Cadet Enduro XT3 Garden Tractors

Buyer's Guide to Cub Cadet Enduro XT3 Garden Tractors

Cub Cadet offers two models in the XT3 series, the GS and the GSX tractors. Both models are on the same chassis. The GS series tractors differ because they have a 22 ½ horsepower engine versus a 25, manual steering versus electric power steering, and manual lift for your attachments versus electric lift. The GSX models have the full bumper whereas the GS models just have the standard front bumper. All the Cub Cadet Enduro XT3 garden tractors have the same durability but there are some added features on the GSX tractors.

Some of the key features of the GSX tractors include a fully robotically welded twin channel frame for exceptional strength. On these models, there is a little hump in the center of the foot pan and this protects your drive shaft. This would have a drive shaft direct from the engine to the transmission to eliminate the belts and pulleys.

Cub Cadet Enduro XT3 garden tractors are designed for doing a little heavier work and adding garden implements, what they call “ground engaging tools,” so you need that extra strength and durability. We mentioned that these tractors are powered by 22 ½ and 25 horsepower Kohler engines.

To open the hood, you just lift the hood guard up, flip forward, and pop the engine up. The first thing you’ll notice is that the engines are mounted horizontally versus vertical. The advantage you have with the horizontal placement is to get that drive shaft drive versus running a pulley off the bottom of the engine. Cub Cadet Enduro XT3 garden tractors have Kohler Command engines. The Kohler Command is an overhead valve and is a true commercial grade engine, designed for a little heavier use.

Cub Cadet GSX models have electronic power steering. The advantage with electronic power steering versus hydraulic is the electronic power steering doesn’t pull the power away from the engine and if you’re running it at slower speeds you still get the same steering as you would at a higher speed. The electronic power steering, especially if you’re adding attachments on the front with additional weight, this still gives you a very light feel to your steering wheel.

Cub Cadet GSX models offer much less operator fatigue and the electrical PTO switch is standard to engage all your attachments. Just pull the switch to engage and push to disengage. What that’s going to do for you is eliminate the idler pulleys for the engagement to prolong your belt life.

Like all Cub Cadet tractors, the Enduro XT3 garden tractors have the 2-pedal hydrostatic drive system. With this, the further you push forward the faster the machine goes. Reverse is on a separate pedal over to the side, and these models also have cruise control. You can lock the cruise control if you have extended mowing lengths and you don’t want to hold your foot on the pedal. To disengage cruise control just tap the pedal or the brake pedal.

All Cub Cadet Enduro XT3 garden tractors have the mow in reverse feature. Once you’re confident that there are no obstacles or no pets or children outside you can push the button, so you are able to mow in reverse if you so desire. Another nice feature on these mowers is your mowing height is controlled with the lever on the side. Also, all your attachments can be raised and lowered electrically. If you push the button with the arrow pointing forward that will lower your desired height of cut and if you push the button with the arrow pointing backward you will raise the height of cut and that will work for all your attachments. That’s a very nice and convenient feature, especially if you have some heavier attachments, this makes it much easier to operate.

The fuel tank fill is right on the rear fender of the Cub Cadet Enduro XT3 garden tractors so it’s very easy to access without having to reach over the hood of the tractor. The operator seat tips forward and there’s a slide system so you can adjust your height and seat position based on the comfort of the operator. These tractors are also equipped with heavy transmissions. This is Cub Cadet’s top-of-the-line lawn and garden tractor, so there’s a very beefy cast iron housing transmission. It’s extremely durable for those tougher applications.

Cub Cadet Enduro XT3 garden tractors don’t come standard with any mower deck option. Based on the users’ needs you can have a 42, 48, 50, 54, all the way up to a 60-inch mower deck. This gives you a lot of versatility and a wide range of front and rear attachments are available.

Buyer’s Guide to Cub Cadet CC 30 H Rider

Buyer's Guide to Cub Cadet CC 30 H Rider

The Cub Cadet CC 30 H rider features a 382 cc Cub Cadet OHV engine and an exclusive telescoping steering column that allows you to easily adjust the size of the operator area, creating a more comfortable ride for all users. Its compact size allows you to maneuver through narrow spaces. The hydrostatic transmission makes operating the machine a breeze.

The Cub Cadet CC 30 H rider is a rear-engine mower. The advantage with the rear engine riders is it gives you exceptional visibility when you’re mowing, you’re not looking over the hood of an engine. These mowers are very comfortable to get on and off for a small rider. They have a hydrostatic drive transmission which is typically what you find on the larger lawn tractors. A foot pedal controls your forward and reverse drive, there’s no clutching or shifting.

The parking brake lever on the Cub Cadet CC 30 H rider makes it easy to lock your parking brake. Headlight comes standard on the Cub Cadet CC 30 H. This machine is great for you if you have a smaller lawn and maybe you just don’t want to walk anymore or if it’s too hard to walk around your lawn. It’s also a great option if you have a storage issue and just really don’t have enough space for the bigger lawn tractors. This mower has a 30-inch cutting deck so it’s small but it’s a considerate improvement over your typical 21- or 22-inch mower.

The Cub Cadet CC 30 H rider makes quick work of your lawn and are very comfortable to ride and operate. A single lever adjusts your mowing height. To engage your mower deck push forward and to disengage push back.

The Cub Cadet CC 30 H rider is also a good option for somebody that’s in-between a walk behind lawn mower and a lawn tractor or, like we mentioned, just needs a little more storage space. Also, another great feature is Cub Cadet’s patented SmartJet Deck Washing System. This mower is designed with a garden hose attachment right on the deck. Hook your garden hose on when you’re on the mower, fire up your hose and when you’re sitting on the seat turn on your mower deck and that water will propel around the deck to keep your deck clean and free of rust buildup. A clean mower deck promotes better cutting performance. That SmartJet Deck Washing System is a great feature on all Cub Cadet riding mowers and lawn tractors.

Buyer’s Guide to Toro TimeCutter SS Series Zero Turn Riders

Buyer's Guide to Toro TimeCutter SS Series Zero Turn Riders

The Toro TimeCutter SS series zero turn riders are Toro’s smaller chassis models. These mowers come with 32 or 42 inch cutting widths. The 74726 is a very popular model with the 42 inch deck. It has a very compact size for those smaller yards that still want the productivity of a zero turn.

All the Toro TimeCutter SS series zero turn riders have the swing on handlebars. The controls for your height is spring-assisted and is marked inside for your height of cut. TimeCutter SS series zero turn riders all come with the Smart Speed Control system which is a unique system. With this system you can select different speeds depending on your conditions.

The Toro TimeCutter SS series zero turn riders have a trim, tow and mow speed. With the trim speed, if you have a lot of tight mowing it basically slows your overall ground speed down, so it makes it easier to operate when doing trim work. The tow speed is kind of a mid-range but still gives you a little more power to the transmission, and then you have your regular mow speed for your conventional mowing or if you have a lot of straight, open mowing this gives you a higher ground speed.

Toro TimeCutter SS series zero turn riders boast incredible features including heavy-duty rear engine guards, washout ports, dual hydrostatic drive systems, and a braking system that automatically stops the mower deck and sets the parking brake when you need to get off the mower while keeping the engine running. These zero turns are designed for both homeowners and landscape professionals looking for powerful and durable machines.

Toro TimeCutter SS series zero turn riders also provide enhanced comfort while delivering the performance and reliability needed to handle tough yard tasks.
