The all-new 2014 Altoz XP Z line of zero-turn radius mowers is built for the residential and commercial operator who appreciates exceptional cutting performance and premium quality construction. Sculpted from thick American-made steel and equipped with many of the key features of the premier XC Z, the XP Z line features two great mower options (540 Z and 610 Z) from the team of engineers at Altoz Precision Mowers.

The Aero Deck High Output System, a fixture of all Altoz precision mowers, sets the tone for the attention to detail and focus on functionality for the XP Z line. Thanks to maximum airflow from its quality-engineered design and premium mulching blades, the XP Z’s deep deck and unrestrictive interior surface delivers a quality precision cut.

After years of high level research and engineering, the XP Z line raises the bar in the toughness category. With an ideal combination of power, speed and durability, productivity skyrockets with no sacrifice in quality. The XP Z line boasts a rugged drive system and clutch that produces 200 ft.-lbs. of torque along with heavy-duty deck, deck spindles, front forks and fork castors.

The XP Z line also features the SmarTrac Monitoring System to ensure the operator stays informed. With built-in maintenance reminders, a digital gauge, alarm protection, and an on-board clock, the XP Z line provides worry-free functionality.

Operator comfort is never compromised in the XP Z design. The American-made mower features unobstructed sightlines and maximum vision as a result of the exclusive front-frame viewport, while the ergonomic seat and adjustable suspension features high quality padding allowing the operator to mow all day.

Altoz mowers are inspired by our passion for excellence,” says Dennis Brazier, Altoz Chief Executive Officer. “We built the XP 610 Z and XP 540 Z models for lawn care professionals and residential homeowners who expect excellence in the cut and quality of their mower, and who take pride in the distinction that comes from owning a quality, reliable and durable machine.”

“These mowers elicit two dramatic reactions from people,” continues Brazier. “The first is a jaw-dropping response when they see the Altoz in-person, which is a reaction to the stunning race car-inspired design. The next is admiration of the quality of the cut, which is the result of the mower’s superior performance. Both leave a strong, lasting impression.”

The result of this comprehensive commitment to design, quality and performance are exceptional mowers that deliver a precision cut.

The 2014 Altoz XP Z models are represented with the XC Z, XC S and XP S lines of zero-turn mowers. They are manufactured in Greenbush, MN, and will be available in select U.S. markets beginning in fall 2013.
