<p>Although a lot of folks don&rsquo;t know it,&nbsp;<a title=”Swisher” href=”http://www.swisherinc.com/” target=”_blank”>Swisher</a>&nbsp;helped pioneer the zero-turn concept more than 50 years ago, before many of today&rsquo;s mower manufacturers were in business. And though the company is known for much more than mowers today, their commitment to the ZTR mower has never waned. Today, Swisher&rsquo;s commitment continues with a full line of innovative, rugged, dependable and hard-working zero-turn mowers.</p>
<p>All of Swisher&rsquo;s zero-turn mowers are built with a mid-deck design providing a true 360&deg; turning radius and the low center of gravity and profile provide excellent maneuverability and stability. This easy handling makes mowing around trees, shrubs and other obstacles a breeze. Up to 8.5 MPH operating speed dramatically reduces mowing time &hellip; however, with our less-than-smooth lawn, mowing at that speed would be downright scary.</p>
<p>Swisher&rsquo;s new 42-inch ZTR is called the ZT18542A and comes with the following features:</p>
<blockquote dir=”ltr” style=”margin-right: 0px;”>
<p>&bull; Powerful 18.5 HP Briggs &amp; Stratton engine<br />
&bull; 42-inch stamped cutting deck great for residential or commercial mowing<br />
&bull; Cutting height is adjustable 1″ to 4″ with manual lever, spring assisted deck lift<br />
&bull; 1.1 gallon fuel capacity keeps you mowing for longer periods of time<br />
&bull; Eaton commercial grade hydrostatic transmission<br />
&bull; Stationary front axle<br />
&bull; 8-8×6.5″ rear tires and 4-41×3.5″ front tires for greater traction and stability<br />
&bull; Two blades cut grass into fine clippings<br />
&bull; Comfortable 15-inch mid-back seat<br />
&bull; Electric PTO clutch<br />
&bull; Automatic parking brakes on ergonomic steering handles<br />
&bull; Sandpaper grit mats on deck for operator safety<br />
&bull; Convenient storage compartment</p>
<p>When you are in the market for an affordable, new mower, check this &nbsp;model out at a dealer near you.</p>
