Husqvarna PZ / PZT Series Zero Turn mowers.

Updated: December 4, 2013

Husqvarna professional series of zero turn mowers, designed for the commercial landscape professional seeking increased productivity and a higher quality of cut.

The PZ / PZT Series couples leading edge design and engineering with the commercial operator’s wish list for a unit that exceeds expectations.

Husqvarna’s team of designers and engineers have developed a range that integrates five design elements – High productivity, Best quality cut, Maximum durability, Unsurpassed comfort and Simplified serviceability – destined to set the industry standard in Zero Turn Mowers.

High Productivity
The PZ / PZT Series offers high levels of productivity through a balance of optimized ground speed, cut quality, clipping dispersal and exceptional manoeuvrability.

The PZ drive system utilizes 12cc (PZ29) and 16cc (PZ34) Hydro-Gear fan cooled pumps and Parker wheel motors to achieve ground speeds up to 19.3km/h. The combination of oversized pumps, cooling fans and large 5.6 litre hydraulic oil reservoir effectively reduce heat for extended service life and provide high torque and smooth operation.

The PZT drive system utilises a Hydro-Gear ZT3400 Commercial Grade transmission to achieve ground speed up to 16.1km/h. The fully serviceable transmission provides excellent reliability and smooth operation.

The largest productivity gain is the result of a new series cutting deck featuring state-of-the-art computer aided design to increase cut quality and processing of clippings at higher ground speeds.

Best Quality Cut
The cutting deck has been designed to optimise flow patterns, guarantee even dispersal of clippings and reduced blow out to deliver the best quality cut. The wide mouth opening also ensures superior cutting discharge – even in heavy cutting conditions – so that ground speeds can be increased.

In addition, the new deck lift features a foot activated quick release mechanism which allows the operator to keep both hands on the steering levers while moving the deck from transport to cutting position and back again.

Maximum Durability and Ruggedness
All components of the PZ / PZT Series have been carefully designed to stand up to the daily demands of commercial cutting. Components include a rugged welded tube frame, cast iron spindles, premium commercial engines and heavy-duty hydraulic systems all combine to make a machine that is not only productive but will stay in the field longer.
The new 6-inch deep cutting deck features a seven gauge steel shell with reinforced scalp roller supports and a commercial cast aluminium (PZT54) or cast iron (PZ29 / PZ34) blade spindle assembly with a large diameter to spread impact loads over a wider area. In order to extend the service life of the deck belt, larger idlers are used to reduce belt flex and extend bearing life. A discharge shield, constructed of moulded rubber to withstand impact without damage to the deck, rounds out the package.

Unsurpassed Comfort
One thing is unanimous among commercial landscape contractors — a comfortable operator is a productive operator. A new rubber suspended operator platform isolates the operator’s hands, feet and body from any vibrations, while the deep cushioned, full suspension seat and ergonomic placement of controls combine to optimise operator comfort.

Simplified Serviceability
A critical design component of the new PZ / PZT Series is the machine’s service accessibility.
The design of the PZ / PZT Series lends itself to simplified service, from the open engine area with easy access to the engine and oil filters. The under-seat area offers open access to the hydro system, battery and electrical system, plus an easy to remove foot plate allows for convenient deck access.

The Series consists of three models, with a choice of cutting decks ranging from 54-inch to 72-inch to suit the job at hand.
