$39,199 Bobcat Zero-Turn Electric Lawn Mower Is Ready for Summer

The company claims its new machine can deliver up to eight hours of continuous runtime on a single charge, that the ZT6000e produces no “tailpipe” emissions while in use, and that it is significantly quieter than the competition at ICE engine. In other words, perfect for use in municipalities with strict noise regulations.

“The ZT6000e is designed for both lawn care professionals and other businesses who want to create their own professional-quality results in a more sustainable way,” said Daniel Stibral, grounds care product specialist. at Bobcat. “It is very maneuverable, efficient and handles difficult mowing tasks with precision, ease and a perfect cut. »

Electrek’s point of view

Yes, the ZT6000e electric lawn mower East more expensive than the 850 cc petrol version. Actually about 3 times more expensive, but that doesn’t matter.

The fact is, more and more municipalities across the country are effectively banning internal combustion lawn equipment, from lawn mowers to edgers to leaf blowers — and those that aren’t banning it outright small engines indirectly ban them with increasingly strict noise regulations. Translation: If you plan to make a living in landscaping, you’ll need to purchase an electric mower sooner rather than later.

When you do that, Bobcat seems like a solid choice.
