Altoz unveiled its latest addition to its product line with the launch of the all-new XE series of zero-turn mowers.
Attendees at the annual GIE+EXPO were the first to see the new model line, which maintains much of the same award-winning characteristics of the XC Z model, recently recognized in Landscape and Irrigation magazine's "Twenty for 2014" New Product awards. The XE has been specifically designed for discerning, multi-acre homeowners and smaller commercial operations.
Utilizing the same engineering principles and attention to detail found in the commercial Altoz mowers, the new XE model line delivers precision cut, quality manufacturing, durability and comfort that have become synonymous with the Altoz brand. Three unique models - XE 480, XE 540 and XE 610 - make up the XE line, each being powered by a Briggs & Stratton Commercial Turf engine with electronic fuel management. Durable Hydro-Gear 3200 commercial transmissions are featured in all three models, which are available in 48, 54 and 61-inch cutting deck widths. Large 22-inch rear tires and an optional suspension seat combine for a comfortable ride.

"As we commemorate the launch of our XC and XP model lines here at GIE just one year ago, we are proud to extend our product line with the debut of the XE models," said Dennis Brazier, Altoz Chief Executive Officer. "The same DNA from our top-of-the-line commercial zero-turn mowers has been carried over to the new XE line to ensure the highest-quality and most durable zero-turn mower possible. All while being offered at a competitive price point."
A complete line of accessories for the XE models will be coming soon.
Also making its debut inside of the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky, were two new Altoz XC model zero-turn mowers - XC 540 Si & XC 610 Si - which are now powered by Briggs & Stratton's Vanguard™ 810cc Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) engines. The 28-horsepower engine features a closed-loop fuel injection system that results in fuel economy improvements of up to 25% over carbureted engines. The increased engine efficiency and high-performance characteristics of the XC models raise the bar yet again for commercial-grade ZTRs.
