Cub Cadet

RZT® L 42 Lap Bar Zero-Turn Rider


22 HP* professional-grade Kohler® 7000 Series engine

Built to last and gives you a quieter, smoother ride in tough mowing conditions.

Pivoting Front Axle and Floating Deck

Follow the contours of the ground for superior cutting, providing a smoother and more uniform look.

Front Caster Wheels

Provide a steady ride for maximum operator comfort and are easier on turf.

Oversized Lap Bars with Comfort Grips

Oversized lap bars with full-length comfort grips provide smooth engagement of the transmissions and prevent "jerky" starts.

42" Twin-Blade Mowing Deck

Thick blades stay sharp longer.

Allows you to easily change to bagging or mulching mode.

Patented SmartJet™ Deck Wash System

Attach your hose directly to the deck to wash away clippings and improve deck performance.

Dual Hydro-Gear™ EZT 2200 Transmission

Utilizes the full potential of both the engine and the transmission. No hoses between pump and motor allows more power for deck.
