Hydro-Gear® EZT Fully Integrated Transmission
- No shifting necessary for effortless operation
- Equipped with cooling fans and large hydraulic reservoir
The maintenance free Hydro-Gear EZT hydrostatic transaxle set up is both strong and reliable for most homeowners needs.
EZT’s are easy to use and are the most common transmissions in cheaper models. Although Ariens recommends the Zoom will work fine on 12 degree slopes the EZT is ideal only for flat terrains.
4-Point Deck Mount Design
- 42″ 12-gauge stamped steel deck
- 17,000 feet per minute blade tip speed
- 4 support positions prevent excess deck movement
- Delivers a better cut with less scalping
- Mechanical foot lift raises & lowers mowing deck
The 42-inch wide 12 gauge rust resistant stamped steel 3 blade deck features tunnel’d cutting areas to provide good grass clipping discharge with little to no clumping. When cutting very tall grass (12” or higher) you may experience some bogging, clogging or clumping depending on the thickness.
Simply take your time and/or make a second pass. If you plan on cutting very tall grass on a regular basis you may want to think about getting a heavier duty zero turn such as Ariens Max Zoom 60-Inch or Toro TimeCutter SS5000 50-Inch.

- Accurate mowing and driving.
- Easy to maneuver in tight areas.
- Sliding adjustable seat
- 3 year warranty with unlimited hours.

- Adjustable control bars with dampers built in for added comfort.
- 4 anti-scalp wheels built on the deck
- Hour Meter does not come standard but is an option.
