Possessing the standout features of the PRO Z 900 Series with the addition of Cub Cadet’s self-levelling Air-Ride seat, the PRO Z 972 SDL will keep you in maximised and customised comfort all day, every day.

Engineered to dominate steep hills, the PRO Z 972 SDL is a dual-wheel commercial zero-turn with unmatched durability, stability and performance. With its heavy-duty maintenance-free deck, superior cutting performance and self-levelling Air-Ride comfort seat, the PRO Z 972 SDL is the ultimate mowing solution for municipalities, commercial operators and large properties with varied, challenging terrain. The PRO Z 972 SDL commercial zero turn has been engineered with a unique drive system that includes four-wheel steering, as well as dual rear wheels, commanding the ability to mow on steeper slopes up to 25 degrees.

The unmatched hillside confidence starts with oversized dual rear wheels that provide greater stability and precision.
