Safety Alert for Buyers of Used Commercial Zero Turn Mowers
Date:3/26/2009

. "All Toro products undergo strict safety, performance and durability testing before they enter the market. When one of our Z Master® mowers is operated according to the safety instructions included in the operating manual and on the machine, it is safe for its intended purpose. If misused, however, and operated in conditions outside the safe operating zone, such as on too-steep slopes or near drop offs, there is an added risk of loss of control and/or rollover, which could result in injury or death."

Harris says people who purchased an older model Toro® Z Master® 100 or 200 Series commercial mower can get a ROPS installed at their local Toro dealer free of charge.

"When we sell someone a used commercial ZRT, we let them know about the option of a new ROPS free of charge from Toro or Exmark," explains Jim Greenberg, finance manager at Greenberg Implement. For those who are reluctant to have a ROPS installed because they may perceive it as inconvenient, Greenberg says, "If the homeowner has a lot of hills, I'm adamant about recommending the ROPS."

And Penn State's Steel urges homeowners not to sacrifice safety for convenience. "Even an experienced, professional operator of ZRTs should have a ROPS -- but a homeowner can get themselves into big trouble without one," he said.

As a reminder to other ZRT owners, Lent says, "These are big, fast, beefy machines. I feel safer with the ROPS installed."

Safety Basics for Your Z Mower
Here are a few tips for safe operation of a ZRT mower:
1.   Get a ROPS installed if you don't already have one.
2.   Be careful on hills. Hilly terrain can cause you to lose traction. Don't tackle slopes greater than 15 degrees and keep movements deliberate and steady.
3.   Keep your speed in check. You need to feel in control of the machine at all times.
