Drive at a Faster Speed: Zero turn mowers are designed to cut grass nearly twice as fast as traditional lawn tractors so your straight line mowing speed is improved. A typical lawn tractor cuts at a speed of 3-4 mph while a typical zero turn mower cuts at a speed of 5-8 mph.
Zero-turn mowers offer clean cuts at 5 miles per hour (mph) and can reach speeds of more than 10 mph. In comparison, lawn tractors mow at about 4 mph with a top speed of around 7 mph.
At just 17cm turning circle the XT2 series have the tightest turning radius on the market.
What is a typical turning circle for a passenger car? A turning radius of 34`-35` | 10.4-10.7 m is common for passenger cars today.
The minimum radius turn means making a turn in the smallest possible ground area, for example if we find ourselves in a valley in deteriorating weather and we need to make a 180 degree turn to come back out.

The problem: electronics will not engage.

The unit was mowing and running when I moved to another location and started the mower it started fine.

Unloaded and went to engage the blades but they would not engage. Got off the machine to check things out belts etc. were OK got back on the machine and it wouldn’t start even the hour meter failed to light up.

Battery is fully charged, I can take a screw driver and “jump” the leads at the seleniod and get the engine to turn over, but not start.

I just need to know where to start looking for the problem. I though about hard wiring the safety switches starting with the seat.

Oil light keeps flashing, Check Oil but the oil gage says that it is full.
ANSWER : Hello,

The flashing comes on just before the 50 hour mark, then again every 50 hours. It has nothing to do with the actual oil in the engine. It is a reminder only to change the oil. It will then reset after the 50 hour intervals. You dont need to do anything to shut it off.
