The Industry Standard is a Great Catch Every Time.

Bad Boy Mowers ZT Elite has been the biggest value in the performance and price honey hole of homeowner class mowers for more than a decade. And they never stop making it better, stronger and more comfortable. It’s been Bad Boy's best selling model since the day they introduced it and we encourage you to compare it to any other zero-turn in its price range — or higher. Because there’s still no better value for the residential homeowner — anywhere.

All-New for 2021

Bad Boy has taken their most popular mower and turned it up a notch. The redesigned 2021 ZT Elite zero turn mower has additions like newly styled tanks, new cooler and rear covers, and new pulley covers to keep you riding in style. Plus, an all new seat putting comfort at your disposal.

The biggest addition to the ZT Elite is easily the All-New Independent Front Suspension. Independent front arms help the mower to glide over terrain creating a smoother cut and a more comfortable ride.

Power and Innovation

Dual High-Performance Hydro-Gear 3100 Integrated Drive Systems for reliable, self-contained power and performance. Bad Boy pairs these powerful drives with higher horsepower-to-class, reliable engines that perform year after year, season after season. It’s power and performance at an unbeatable value.

Strength and Cut Quality

Built and priced to own the demanding residential landowner market, the ZT Elite features strong 2˝ x 2˝ all steel rail frame for its backbone. Industry-leading 3/8˝ steel front forks are a Bad Boy construction hallmark as is the solid steel, all-welded deck. Formed from tough 7-gauge steel with reinforced edges, the unique baffling system maximizes airflow for greater grass lift and a cleaner cut. And it all rides on a lower center of gravity for better traction.

Control and Comfort

Bad Boy's cushioned comfort seat features padded arm rests for a relaxed operating posture. Steering is tighter and smoother with our steering dampening system for better response and maneuverability. With Bad Boy's adjustable, left or right side deck lift pedal, you can easily dial in the perfect deck height for a perfect cut time and time again. Then Bad Boy tops it off with class-leading fuel capacity — 6.5 gallons — and lots of deep storage, plus a cup holder for your favorite mowing beverage.
