Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work horse! I bought my z48 many years ago and have 350+ hours with no problems! I mow 2 acres with steep banks and many trees. It’s ability to mow close really cuts down on trimming! I have the dealer service as well do I and it definitely proved to be the key! Liked this mower so well, I bought an XT2 G54 for the plowing and implement pulling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy, would have rate 4.5 stars if I could Going to the steering wheel zero turn has saved my yard. Although a bit slower than my previous bad boy tractor it does not tear up my lawn on slopes as was the case with my bad boy mower. Deck removal is a chore for belt maintenance but the results I see in my yard are with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty nice! Was a little concerned about how it would handle the hills and slopes on my property.... does a great job! With the wide stance and real four wheel steering, not two wheel like the older models, no feeling that you are going to flip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the Heavy Duty I had the mower for two years and love it. It has grease fitting to grease and rigid frame for big boys like me on a hill side. I added an extension to the hitch to pull a leaf sweeper works good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Cut, Handles Like a Dream Purchased the zforce s 48 from local dealer in Pittsburgh, PA. Got a mulch and stripe kit installed. Very solid construction. This thing cuts like a dream and leaves a decent stripe. It will turn uphill on a slope with no problem and did NOT tear up my burnt grass. Perfectly straight lines. The ride is a little rough if you don't have a golf course for a yard so just lay off the throttle a little. Has plenty of power and is actually on the quieter side (prior mower was a Cub LT1 tractor). Can not comment on durability as of yet but it definitely seems like an extremely well put together piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied I decided I wanted a zero-turn with a steering wheel when I educated myself on the pros and cons of mowers that work best on steep inclines (I have a lot). Bought in spring of '17. This thing is awesome - it's like driving a powerful golf cart that cuts grass. It's extremely easy to maneuver, and it performs excellently. Lever-action spring-assisted deck lifter is awesome (another make had a foot pedal which I would not prefer). Early on, it would stall out when I turned on the PTO, but I learned from my very helpful dealer that this is because the engine needs to warm up sufficiently before engaging the problems since. I decided I wanted the Z-force due to better trans, better build, tougher steel/welded deck, can change the oil filter. Heard rumors that cub cadet is poor quality compared to other makes that are mostly commercial-grade (although cub cadet now has its own commercial-grade models), but comparing residential models to residential models, I am very happy with my choice.
