Cub Cadet Z-Force S60


The CUB Cadet Z-Force S60 Zero Turn Rider is the largest machine of the Z-Force S Rider series. It is propelled by a large coup engine of 26 hp. This 2-cylinder engine is manufactured by Kohler. Using a dual transmission Hydro Gear Zt 2800, this Cub Cadet is automatic. However, this transmission allows each rear wheel to work independently from the other, which facilitates its ability to execute radio zero turns. The smallest models of the same series as the Z Force S 60 include the CUB Cadet Z-Force S48LP and the CUB Cadet Z-Force S54 Zero Turn Rider.

One thing that many people find is that the Cub Cadet Z-Force S60 cub cadet is a very heavy machine. It weighs the amazing amount of 358 kg (790 lbs) which is huge for a corteped that has a cutting width of only 60 inches. Fortunately, the wheels that support the weight of the z force s 60 are large enough to distribute the load on the floor without leaving antiestic marks of threads. The rear wheels measure 20 × 10-8 (20 inches in diameter, 10 inches of width, 8 inches in tire diameter). The front wheels are understandably much smaller, measuring 13 × 5-6 (13 inches in diameter, 5 inches of width, 6 inches in tire diameter).

The maximum speed of the Cub Cadet Z-Force S60 Zero Turn Rider cadet is 12. 9 km/h (8 mph) when it moves forward and 6. 4 km/h (4 mph) when it goes back. This makes it very efficient when cutting large Céspedes compared to most of the corteped tractors. The Z force S 60sped platform has a construction very similar to that of other models of the Z-Force S. series if you have one of these machines, please let others know what they should expect from it. Please include details about what most like it, as well as any modification you have made or accessories you use with it.

5 Reviews of the Cub Cadet Z-Force S60

It should be 30 hp instead of 24 hp. It goes down too easily. The seat position is not comfortable. You need to be further back and taller. The greasers of the cutting platform must be in a more accessible area. Difficult to direct at low speed. Install an assisted management system. Vibration problems are not good for a new corteped. I don’t need to hear the buzzing of the plates. I would like to have bought a tracto r-style host. I am definitely not impressed with this cutter or Cub Cadet.

A full season without any problem.

I move around 6 acres of surface quite level every 2 weeks during the summer the cutter has about 200 hours in it

this belt tension problem makes the machine useless, i am about to trade it for a more robust kubota.

I had to change the drive belt earlier this year and the servicing dealer replaced the blade drive belt assembly, since then the bolt holding the assembly has cut 4 times and worn the drive belt.

I have a 3. 5 acre lot with very little flat surface and a 70 yard, 30 degree downhill backyard. I used to run a 2000 series Cub Cadet with a 48 inch deck that would take me 4. 5 hours to cut through the whole lot, no trimming. I have tried a series of Kubota GR’s on my back hill and couldn’t get that big of a machine up my back hill without tearing up the yard.

After researching traditional zero-turn mowers, I’ve been told by more than one dealer that they wouldn’t sell me a zero-turn mower because of my hills. Power comes only from the rear wheels and there is a high chance of overturning these machines going up hills. I’ve tested various John Deers, Simplcity, Cub Cadets and Kubotas looking for something with a 50+ inch tire, low uncut radius and decent traction and a reasonable price.

After settling on a 2500 series Cub Cadet with a 54-inch deck, I spoke to the Cub Cadet salesperson about my desire for a zero-turn mower. He mentioned the Z-Force S and had the 48-inch and 60-inch models in the lot. I asked him about the hills and he said I could try it on the 35 degree hill they had in the back of the lot. I went up, down and sideways up the hill at full throttle, trying as hard as I could to make it slide. Nothing. It hugged the slope just as well as if it were on a flat surface.

It was only slightly more than the 2500 series and I spent the extra $300 for the 60-inch deck. A great choice. Now I can mow my entire yard in less than 2 hours, including most of the pruning, which includes about 70% horseback around my property. With the exception of one notch in the deck design on the front right, I can easily trim the entire yard to the point where I only need to hand trim once a month.

I have only used the mower 10 times so I have no idea about the reliability of the machine. I have to say that I recently started the mower after sitting in the shed all winter and have had no problems. I’ll edit this review on the life of the mower if any status changes, but overall I highly recommend it.

Zero turn cuts mowing time in half.

Uniform cut with stripping effects.

Great speed, even with the mower in gear.

Great maneuverability for such a heavy machine.

The 60-inch deck is a great advantage for large gardens.

It takes some time to master steering and acceleration.

The toolbox could use a lid to keep the grass from building up.

The mower deck has a notch in the front left that often gets caught when trimming around a post.

The accelerator pedal requires more force than usual. My feet get tired after long mowing sessions.
