  • 2022 Pro Tool Innovation Award Winner

    We are excited to announce that our PRO Z 960 S SurePath® unit received a 2022 Pro Tool Innovation Award. Each year the Pro Tool Innovation Awards are judged by a panel of industry professionals who handle and use hundreds of new tools each year. SurePath was given this award because of its innovative GPS technology that provides a semi-autonomous experience designed to cut consistent, even striping no matter how long your lines are.

SurePath Semi-Autonomous Mowers


  • Are there additional costs for GPS connection?
  • SurePath mowers require a technology package to use the semi-autonomous features. The first year of the technology package (based on the product activation date) is included in the SurePath™ purchase price. For additional years, the technology package will be billed annually and can be ordered through your local Cub Cadet dealer.

  • Does weather affect usage?
  • With RTK-GPS, certain extreme weather conditions could impact connectivity or performance. However, mowing would not be possible in most of those extreme conditions anyway.

  • What if I have GPS or cellular issues?
  • Your SurePath unit needs a good GPS signal as well as a cellular service to operate. If the unit is experiencing issues with either of these, the SurePath indicator lights will switch from solid green to flashing green or will turn off. If the indicators flash red, SurePath Auto Steer mode is temporarily unavailable, and you will need to resume mowing manually. Once the system reacquires the signal, the indicator lights will switch to solid green. You can then press Engage Auto to resume semi-autonomous mowing along the nearest cut line.

  • Where is SurePath available?
  • SurePath is currently only available in the United States in select states. Contact your local Cub Cadet dealer for more information.

  • Can I get this fitted or mounted on a different mower?
  • SurePath is a new, exclusive model with unique and innovative components. This technology is not available to be retrofitted or mounted on different mowers.

  • What is the warranty?
  • Cub Cadet® SurePath is covered by the same warranty as the PRO Z 900 Series: 3-year limited commercial warranty (no hour limitations) and 5 year / 1,750 hour limited deck construction warranty.

  • Is maintenance any different from a non-SurePath unit?
  • Your local Cub Cadet® dealer will be able to provide the same high-quality service and maintenance support for SurePath units.
