The Hustler Flip Up

Great Plains has only been selling Hustler mowers for two season, and yet they’ve already reached a “Diamond” dealer status.  The secret to this success lies within the Hustler Turf Equipment name, products, and dealer support that customers want and trust.  Products like the new Hustler Raptor Flip-Up, which was available earlier this spring are why customers seek out Hustler mowers from dealers such as Great Plains.
Hustler Flip-Up mowers are the world’s only high-performance zero turn with “QuickFlip” technology.  These models feature a push button deck lift that makes cleaning and blade changing effortless.  This patent pending technology simply makes mowing life easier.  From deck height adjustment, to creating more storage space, this push button option is one customers young and old can respect.
Some of the highlights of this innovative new model are: a push button deck to raise and lower for easy blade access, automated deck height adjustment, exclusive SmoothTrak™ steering,  SmartChoke™ technology that allows you to turn the key and go, and finally, oversized 20 inch drive tires for added stability.  These are just some of the features that set the Flip-Up apart from other zero turns.  In fact, there really is no comparison to this mower.  With today’s technological advances isn’t it time a residential zero turn lawn mower should provide affordable technology to make mowing easier?  This new mower brings an end to an era of cranking, lifting and crawling under your mower.
The Hustler Flip-Up is the newest member of the Raptor family, and is the easiest mower on the market to own and maintain.  It provides commercial grade performance and productivity at a residential mower price.  If there is one thing that can extend the life of your mower while improving cutting performance it’s having a clean deck with sharp blades.  These time consuming factors can go unattended, but not when there’s a button that does the hard part for you.  How can you put a price on such an option?  One might think that these mowers would burst the residential buyers bubble, but in fact they are only about $1500 more than their standard counterparts.  These new models come in the Raptor 48 and 54 inch deck, both equipped with a Kohler 7000 Series engine.  They also have the best warranty in their class, a three year, 300 hour limited warranty for added peace of mind.
Zero turn mowers are designed for fast, precise cutting, and the Flip-Up is no different.  What makes this mower stand alone is one simple button which does what all other zero turns do, and then some. The Hustler Raptor Flip-Up is not just an easy choice, it’s the only choice.

Kubota ZD1200 Series Mowers

Kubota has produced over twenty five million diesel engines since 1922.  Their engines are recognized the world over as a symbol of quality and reliability.  Likewise the Kubota ZD Series (diesel mowers) have consistently produced powerful yet clean running mowers that homeowners and lawn care professionals have grown to depend on.  This year Kubota has extended their level of mowing performance and productivity even more with the introduction of the ZD1200 series mowers.
The ZD1211 is available with 60 and 72 inch mowing decks with side or rear discharge.  Both are equipped with a 24.8 Kubota diesel engine, and have several new features that will increase efficiency and productivity.  The ACS or Aerodynamic Cutting SystemTM  of the Kubota pro decks have been designed for optimized airflow.  The ACS decks are built for faster, efficient cutting and discharge.  This improvement results in reduced power consumption and increases fuel economy.  New spindle shafts, blade designs, and a flexible discharge chute all play an integral part in optimizing airflow within the deck.  The deck’s spindle shaft is now larger and more durable, while the redesigned cutting blades are shaped to improve both cutting efficiency and overall load balance.  These new blades also provide a longer service life!
Improved airflow within the deck is a great advancement                      for performance, but there are also several new features that will ensure a smoother ride with the ZD1211 and improve overall comfort.  A more comfortable seat will result in less operator fatigue and great productivity, and that’s exactly what customers are getting with Kubota’s new 1200 series mowers.  With dual armrests, higher backrests, and lumbar support, the fully padded reclining bucket seat ensures a high level of comfort.  The new low profile tires are sure to improve stability and traction on turf and the 3 position damper force adjustment lever lets owners personalize their comfort even more.  The new ergonomically designed control layout and large bright LCD panel allows for faster operations and easier handling.
There’s a lot of changes with the new Kubota 1200 series diesel mowers, but customers can still expect a rugged design powered by a dependable engine that will get through the toughest mowing jobs with ease.  The 1200 series is now available at your local Great Plains Kubota.

Take Command of Your Lawn This Spring

From the Spring 2013 Issue of Great Plains Living

By Reed Boettcher  

  Kubota has a new zero turn lawn mower just in time for spring.  The new Kubota Kommander is an easy way to quickly and efficiently mow your lawn this year.  These compact zero turn lawn mowers are built with ergonomics in mind to keep you comfortable through the longest mowing jobs.  They’re easy to operate with a wide range of features designed for fast, efficient mowing.
     You can mow your lawn like a pro, with the smooth, effortless performance of the Kubota Kommander.  The Kommander is comfortable and stylish and is easily operated.  Customers have two models to choose from, the S-model and the E-model.  The ultimate residential zero turn mower comes in the following models with either a 48 or 54 inch deck: the ZG124E, ZG127E, ZG123S, and the ZG127S.
     Cutting your grass at the perfect height has never been easier.  The K-Lift mechanical one-push deck lift pedal raises the deck and with a simple twist of a dial, you can adjust your cutting height in precise 1/4” increments.  After your adjustments, simply push and release the pedal again to lower the deck.
     The ergonomic design features a seat that slides a full six inches forward and back, letting you find just the right position for maximum personal comfort.  Dual operation levers provide the smooth, precise control you’ll need for delicate trimming and work around trees and flower beds.  There are four storage boxes for your tools, lunch, and anything else too big or heavy for your pockets, and of course for safety the Kommander comes standard with full height ROPS.
     The stylish look of the Kommander offers comfort and convenience making it a highly efficient mower to operate.  The high back seat is soft and roomy and will keep you comfortable even on those extra long mowing jobs.  The wide foot pan gives the operator plenty of legroom up front.  It also makes entry and exit a snap.  What riding mower would be complete without cup holders?  The Kommander has multiple integrated cup holders.  Extend your mowing in low light conditions with the stunning and somewhat extraordinary LED headlights which come standard on the S-models and optional on the E-models.  The 22 inch Ultrascaper Z rear tires offer a softer ride and wide tread tires to provide better traction and weight distribution to help protect your lawn.
     When performance counts, the Kubota Kommander delivers.  Their powerful engines, rugged transmissions and strong frames let you take on the toughest jobs with confidence and ease.  For added peace of mind they are covered under Kubota’s four year 300-hour warranty.
     The Kommander is powered by hardworking engines that are available in either Kohler or Briggs and Stratton engines.  All the power from the engine is delivered to the wheels and mower deck through a rugged, Hydro Gear commercial ZT3100 transmission.
     A mower is only as good as its mowing deck.  The Kommander uses a five-inch deep welded deck made of 10-gauge steel which provides outstanding, professional level cutting performance.
     There is a lot to like about the new Kubota Kommander.  From their comfortable ergonomic design to their style and convenience, these attractive, hardworking mowers are designed to make mowing as easy as possible.
