Freedom Z Zero Turn Mower

The entire Freedom Z line-up of zero turn mowers from SCAG has been designed to help you do one thing and one thing only – 

get more free time and enjoy more freedom from lawn care while providing top-quality results at the same time! 


Freedom Z 48"

Engineered to offer commercial mowing capabilities at an affordable price point, this zero turn mower takes advantage of the best in American engineering (and American steel) to produce a zero turn lawnmower that’s going to be a workhorse for your lawn care needs for years and years to come.

With a mowing deck that sits at 48 inches wide you will be able to quickly handle large lawns, shaving a tremendous amount of time off your lawn care routine just because of this new oversized mowing deck.

Combine that with the efficiency and high-speed of a zero turn mower – one that’s powered by a Kohler 7000 Series mower (with either 22 hp or 24 hp) – and you’re looking at something really special.

Easy to control, easy to manoeuvre, and designed to be almost infinitely customisable so that every time you sit on the Freedom Z 48 inch mower it feels custom tailored to you – with controls always at your fingertips – it doesn’t get much better than this.


Freedom Z 52"

Commercial landscapers trust the SCAG brand name to help them tackle large properties and estates quickly and efficiently, and you’ll be able to rely on the same technology, the same engineering, and the same high quality construction components when you upgrade to the Freedom Z 52 inch mower.

Offering an oversized mowing deck to make easy work of large lawns and properties, while still offering the dual hydro transaxle zero turn capabilities you’re expecting in a high-quality zero turn lawn mower, the Freedom Z 52 inch mower remains agile and relatively compact even at its size.

Another cool feature on this lawnmower is the ability to readjust your mower deck on-the-fly. Almost instant cutting deck levelling capabilities are made possible through the four-point deck levelling system, making sure that each cut and each pass on your lawnmower is consistent, efficient, and perfectly clean.

You will be amazed at the kind of terrain that you can manoeuvre on a 52-inch deck lawn mower like this, too. The suspension system has been engineered to provide an easy ride over rough and rocky lawns, and though this is one of the larger units the SCAG lawn mower company makes it does not feel heavy, sluggish, or difficult to pilot.
