Retail prices of our two models are up to $25,000 less than leading industry alternatives that are wider, but often less productive.

Lastec, the company that introduced articulating rotary mowers to the turf market in 1990 is now setting another benchmark for wide-area rotary mowing with the introduction of a new Zero Steering Radius (ZSR) control system. The new Model 4520ZSR is controlled by a steering wheel and delivers full time, four-wheel control and zero turn maneuverability.
The new ZSR mower’s steering is controlled by a conventional steering wheel and speed is controlled with foot pedals. This mower is the only wide area mower on the market that synchronizes all four wheels so that each contributes equally to the control of the mower. Featuring a 45hp diesel engine, the 4520ZSR:
- Successfully combines the benefits of easy steering operation and zero turn maneuverability
- Offers no limits on the size of the turning radius that can be performed
- Virtually eliminates turf tear by synchronizing the steering force of all 4 wheels
- Improves stability on slopes and reduces mowing times
According to Jeff Laskowski, CEO of Lastec, the benefits of the Model 4520ZSR extend beyond the innovative new steering system. “Retail prices of our two models are up to $25,000 less than leading industry alternatives that are wider, but often less productive. The Model 4520 typically burns half the fuel used by others to cut the same grass. Our exceptional fuel savings are the result of Lastec’s patented deck drives that are 30%-50% more efficient than hydraulically driven decks and the productivity gains from greater maneuverability offered by zero turn agility,” explains Laskowski.
Lastec mowers are well recognized in the high-end golf and turf markets for their patented belt-driven articulating cutting decks that have been used by over a quarter of the world’s finest golf courses for the last two decades. These same features are incorporated into the ZSR series of zero turn mowers, which also feature full running lights, all weather cab options, a full instrument panel, 12 volt power outlets, and easy operator access to all controls. A conventional wand steering model is also available.
Lastec revolutionized the turf industry when it introduced articulation in 1990, and is located in Lizton, Indiana. To arrange a demonstration of this product, visit http://www.lastec.com or call 800.515.6798.
