Altoz introduced the latest addition to its residential market offerings with the announcement of the new XR series. Dealers will receive a hands-on introduction to the XR series next month during the GIE+EXPO 2015 being held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky., from October 21-23.
Thanks to an extremely successful 2015 introduction of the XE series, the XR series will cater to the multi-acre homeowner and continue Altoz's surge into the residential market. Both the XE and XR will have the option of Honda GXV and Kohler engines and the XE will continue to have the option of Vanguard and Kawasaki engines in 2016.
“This season, Altoz will have two great model lines engineered specifically for homeowners with larger yards or multiple-acre properties—the XE and now the all-new XR model. The XE was a strong addition for our dealers last year and we expect the XR to be even more successful. With having an option of two great engines to choose from, we believe these two models will help dealers reach the discerning homeowner or that prosumer,” said Dennis Brazier, Altoz chief executive officer.
Utilizing the same engineering principles and attention to detail found in Altoz's award winning XC model, the new XR model line will deliver a precision cut, reliability, durability and comfort that have become synonymous with the Altoz brand. Two unique models – XR 480 and XR 540 – make up the XR line. Durable Twin Hydro-Gear ZT-2800 commercial transmissions are featured in both models, which are available in 48 and 54-inch cutting deck widths. Large 20-inch rear tires and a high back seat combine for a comfortable ride.
“It’s exciting to add Honda GXV and Kohler engines to our lineup – they have a very high satisfaction rate. Offering consumers options is also important to Altoz - with Kohler, Kawasaki, Briggs and Stratton and Honda – consumers will have a choice of quality engines,” added Brazier.
