Husqvarna Design Meets Contractors' Top 5 Needs

Husqvarna's Jerry Sandy describes how the company's new PZ Series design incorporates five components that commercial landscapers consider paramount to operating productive and profitable crews. High Productivity - The PZ Series offers a high level of productivity through a balance of optimized ground speed, cut quality, clipping dispersal and maneuverability. Quality Cut - The new PZ Series' cutting deck utilizes extensive CFD (computational fluid dynamics) modeling as well as extensive field testing in various grass conditions, to optimize flow patterns, provide high cut quality, even clipping dispersal and reduced blowout, even at high ground speeds. The wide mouth opening also allows superior discharge in heavy cutting conditions so that ground speeds can be increased. Durability and Ruggedness - Items including a rugged welded tube frame, cast iron lift arms and spindles, premium commercial engines and oversized hydro systems all combine to make a product that will not only be productive, but stay in the field longer. Comfort - A new rubber suspended operator platform isolates the operators hand, feet and body from vibration while the new deep cushioned, full suspension seat and ergonomic placement of controls combine to optimize operator interface with the mower. Simplified Serviceability - The design of the PZ Series lends itself to simplified service, from the open engine area with easy access to engine and hydro oil filters and drains to minimal grease points. The under-seat area offers open access to the hydro system, battery and electrical system and an easy to remove foot plate allows for convenient deck access.
