New KIOTI zero turn mowers shipped to dealers
April 30, 2019 – KIOTI Tractor, a division of Daedong-USA, Inc., began shipping its inaugural Zero Turn Radius (ZTR) mower line to dealerships across North America this week.
The new mower line features 12 models across four series — ZXR, ZXR SE, ZXC and ZXC SE — designed and developed from the ground up, for commercial and residential applications. Top-tier engine and drivetrain components combined with world-class manufacturing ensure that these ZTRs will deliver the same attributes that KIOTI’s customers have become accustomed to.
“At KIOTI, our priority is continued product line optimization to meet the desires of our customers,” Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, president and CEO of Daedong-USA, Inc. KIOTI Tractor Division, said. “Our teams put in a lot of time and research to ensure these mowers provide an exceptional experience and great value to our customers. We are thrilled to expand the KIOTI offering with these brand new ZXR and ZXCs.”
The KIOTI ZTRs boast features that offer value and reliability, ensuring years of comfortable performance for operators. Engines range from 21- to 27-hp, with six models developed for professionals and six with property owners and hobby farmers in mind. Owners can choose from 48-, 54- or 60-inch mower decks, each with a fabricated, reinforced 10-gauge steel deck and standard notch blades that cut through the toughest turf.
Large 7.5-gallon (ZXR and ZXR SE) or 12.5-gallon (ZXC and ZXC SE) fuel capacities require less frequent refueling, saving time for operators. Models feature Briggs & Stratton or Kohler engines combined with Hydro-Gear® transmissions for reliable, hardworking performance. Optimized belt routing reduces vibration and increases belt life, easing the burden of machine downtime and replacement costs.
“All aspects of these mowers were built with the operator in mind — from easy-to-reach controls and an ergonomically designed seating position to a digital control panel with keyless start and simple dial-type deck height adjustment,” said Joel Hicks, senior product development manager.
Combining industry experience and extensive market research, KIOTI has built a powerful mower that prioritizes comfort for the operator. Seat and deck lift lever positioning ensure the mowers comfortably accommodate users of all builds, and optimized control connections and linkages create a precise and responsive driving experience.
