Swisher have been designing and building zero turn riding mowers for decades, and one of the latest models is the Swisher ZTR2460BS Response 24HP 60-Inch B&S ZTR Riding Mower. For people who have larger lawns and gardens that need mowing, these types of mower can be highly beneficial, and they are a popular choice. Swisher has designed and built this mower for those people who have large, uneven and difficult lawns to cut.
The secret to mowing large or difficult lawns quickly is power and maneuverability, and this is one mower that has both in abundance. This is due in no small part to the 24 hp Briggs and Stratton engine, and the impressive 60 inch, triple bladed cutting deck. Yet, despite its size this is one mower that is easy to control and maneuver, even in those tight spaces, thanks to its low center of gravity and full turning circle. The ample cutting deck is fabricated instead of stamped, and this means that it is much more durable than other mowers, and it is made from commercial grade steel for added durability.
The powerful Briggs and Stratton engine is able to propel the mower at speeds of up to 8 miles per hour in any direction, and it also comes with the Hydro Gear 2800 transmission.
Other features include:
- 8 gallon fuel tank
- A foot controlled deck lift
- 12 volt adaptor
- Cup holder
Pros and Cons
There are a number of benefits to this machine, and the most obvious one is the quality of its construction. Built in the United States, this is one mower that has been designed and built to stand the test of time, and provide years of service before it needs to be replaced. It is easy to operate, it is powerful and can deal with long and tall grass, uneven surfaces and large open spaces with no problem at all. It has also been designed to make operating it much less challenging than before, as well as being much more comfortable to use.
Not suitable for small yards, and comes at a hefty price.
