Excel Industries, Hustler Turf Equipment announced the introduction of an electric zero-turn riding mower. The Hustler Turf Zeon will make its debut at the 2008 GIE+EXPO
in Louisville, Ky. later this month.
The new Zeon is all electric with power provided by a 48-volt computer-controlled battery system. On a single charge, the Zeon’s 42-inch welded-steel mowing deck will quietly cut up to 80-minutes or over an acre of grass without releasing harmful emissions.
With the Zeon, operating costs are much lower than traditional gasoline-powered mowers. The Zeon uses no fuel, oil, belts, pulleys, filters, spark plugs, etc. Also, the cost for electricity tends to fluctuate less and cost much less than gasoline. With the Hustler Zeon, simply plug and mow!
