ZT Elite

Our Most Popular Mower Made Even Better

Bad Boy Mowers ZT Elite zero-turn mower has been the biggest value in the performance and price honey-hole of homeowner class mowers for more than a decade. And we never stop making it better, stronger and more comfortable. It’s been our best selling model since the day we introduced it and we encourage you to compare it to any other zero-turn in its price range — or higher. Because there’s still no better value for the residential homeowner — anywhere.

It's Our Most Popular Mower For A Reason

We’ve taken our most popular mower and turned it up a notch. The redesigned ZT Elite zero turn mower has additions like newly styled tanks, new cooler and rear covers, and new pulley covers to keep you riding in style. Plus, an all new seat putting comfort at your disposal.

A Smoother Cut And More Comfortable Ride

The biggest addition to the ZT Elite is easily the All-New Independent Front Suspension. Independent front arms help the mower to glide over terrain creating a smoother cut and a more comfortable ride.

The Industry Standard Of Zero Turn Mowers

Dual High-Performance Hydro-Gear 3100 Integrated Drive Systems for reliable, self-contained power and performance. We pair these powerful drives with higher horsepower-to-class, reliable engines that perform year after year, season after season. It’s power and performance at an unbeatable value.

Made Strong For The Demanding Homeowner

Built and priced to own the demanding residential landowner market, the ZT Elite features strong 2˝ x 2˝ all steel rail frame for its backbone. Industry-leading 3/8˝ steel front forks are a Bad Boy construction hallmark as is the solid steel, all-welded deck. Formed from tough 7-gauge steel with reinforced edges, the unique baffling system maximizes airflow for greater grass lift and a cleaner cut. And it all rides on a lower center of gravity for better traction.

Keeping You Comfortably In Control

Our cushioned comfort seat features padded arm rests for a relaxed operating posture. Steering is tighter and smoother with our steering dampening system for better response and maneuverability. With our adjustable, left or right side deck lift pedal, you can easily dial in the perfect deck height for a perfect cut time and time again. Then we top it off with class-leading fuel capacity — 6.5 gallons — and lots of deep storage, plus a cup holder for your favorite mowing beverage.

Control Is Firmly In Hand

From engine start to deck height adjustment, it’s all ready to go, and right in front of you.

Patented Independent Front Suspension System

Our patented suspension system keeps the mower deck stable even when your terrain is not. Provides an unmatched, smoother and cleaner cut.

A More Comfortable Difference

Heavily padded and vented, with cushioned back support, our exclusive new seats also feature padded arm rests for all day comfort.
