The new Kubota Kommander Z122R is due to be available to consumers in the early part of 2015. With the expansion of the Z100-Series zero turns the Kommander series will now offer a 42 inch deck model along with it's current 48-inch and 54-inch deck models. Kubota Kommander Z122R's will hit the market with a promotional price of $3,899.
"With Kubota’s new Kommander Z122R mower, homeowners do not have to choose between high-quality performance and affordability,” said Christine Chapman, Kubota turf product manager. "These new mowers are quality engineered to provide excellent maneuverability, high efficiency and a superior cut in one well-styled and comfortable package – all available for under $4,000.”
Build Quality and Performance
The Z122R was built for homeowners seeking an affordable commercial-grade quality zero turn mower. Equipped with a professional-grade industry proven V-Twin Kawasaki FR engine producing 21.5 horse power the Z122R will power thru almost any mowing condition with a top speed of 8mph. It's engineered with stability in mind with it's strong best in class one piece steel frame that features 1.5” x 3” tubular steel frame rails with heavy duty front casters. Putting the power to the ground are duel dependable Hydro-Gear ZT-2200 transmissions. ZT-2200's are known for their easy maneuverability but are not recommended for heavy hauling. Kubota offers one of the best consumer warranties for the Kommander Z100-Series currently available on the market. Kubota's reputation and quality is backed by a 4-year/300-hour warranty.
Standard on the Z122R is an 11 gauge steel 42-inch fabricated deck. The deck features two professional-grade cutting blades with a deck depth of 4.5 inches. There are 3 anti sculpting deck wheels holding the deck even to the ground. This maximizes the cut quality while going over bumpy terrain to ensure a nice clean even professional looking cut. Side-Discharge is standard for the Z122R but a Bagger and Mulching kit are available. Cutting height can be adjusted in ¼ increments by twisting the cutting height dial. The deck height is adjusted with a Mechanical One Push Deck Lift Pedal called a K-Lift.

Use the dial to adjust the deck cutting height.
Push and release the pedal again to lower the deck.
