Cub Cadet Commercial introduces the Z-Wing 48 zero-turn riding lawnmower, which allows the operator to effortlessly engage a switch, triggering the electrical mechanical-lift that folds up the sides of the deck to a 90-degree angle and allows the rider to drive through a 36-inch opening. With the deck engaged, the unit can cut a 48-inch path, but with the flip of a switch, the Z-Wing 48 Deck automatically transforms into “Wings Up” mode and reduces the width of the mower to 35.5 inches.
