Whether it's cutting your lawn or maintaining acres of land, the Cub Cadet Z Force S ($5,500-$6,500) has your back. The zero-turn Z Force S boasts a steering wheel instead of lap bars to turn both the front and the independently controlled back wheels for greater handling and maneuverability. It features a 48 or 60-inch triple-blade fabricated heavy duty decks that easily levels your turf, a dual hydrostatic transmission, and an optional, eco-friendly, lower-emission liquid propane version that cuts fuel cost by up to 30 percent.
