Smartec ZT Drive System



Using a machine equipped with the SMARTEC ZT DRIVE™ system gives you the ability to individualize performance settings to the way you like to mow. Customization is easy through MyMow™, a personalized performance interface that stores an unlimited number of settings for the same mower such as forward and reverse speed, acceleration and overall control. It is the first time this level of detailed and precise tuning has ever been possible for your mower.



This system includes an optional Dynamic Stability Assist module that automatically monitors and adjusts the mower’s performance across 9 axes of motion. This pioneering innovation eliminates the need to periodically adjust the zero turn mowers’ tracking control linkages. Even more importantly, your mower will intelligently self-correct its heading for straighter mowing and improve controllability on gentle slopes.



Smartec has developed the MowNet™ system software, a new innovation where all components are integrated with easy plug-and-play connectivity, simplified wiring, and on-demand upgradability. The SMARTEC MyMow™ App is being developed and includes a Personalized Performance Interface. The MyMow App will allow performance management and troubleshooting at your fingertips. With the simple use of a tablet or smartphone, customization and adjustment will be possible.
