CLEVELAND, OHIO — March 10, 2021 — Backed by 60 years of innovation and experience in developing industry-leading outdoor power equipment, Cub Cadet® is launching a full line of electric outdoor power equipment that provides hassle-free power for any lawn.    

Cub Cadet’s lithium-ion battery line features the same uncompromising commitment to design, comfort and performance found in all of its products. The electric lineup is proven to deliver the same results as Cub Cadet’s industry-leading gas models. From the Ultima ZT1 42E zero turn mower to the 60 Volt MAX String Trimmer, the electric line provides all the tools needed to fine-tune every part of your lawn. 

“Cub Cadet is deeply committed to innovating to meet the ever-evolving needs of its customers,” said Jason Koleki, director of Product Marketing Ride-On Equipment, Cub Cadet. “The momentum behind electric-powered outdoor power equipment is undeniable, so we’re excited to expand on the legacy and reputation of our gas-powered products to deliver electric options that pack more than enough power to get the job done.”

Ultima ZT1 42E
The Ultima Series zero-turn mower, the top-selling model in the residential zero-turn category, has been redesigned as a fully electric lithiuim-ion unit. Continuous 2- x 2-inch square tubular frame enhances strength and durability. User-centric design includes a high-back seat, ergonomic hand grips, rubber floor mat and USB charging port. Fifteen quarter-inch deck height adjustments and a 42-inch stamped deck powered by two independent brushless motors provide the perfect cut every time.
