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 the MyMow™ Mobile App that connects to your machine via Bluetooth (may need a BT designation here) and provides an unlimited number of settings 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 mower’s tracking control linkages. Even more importantly, your mower will intelligently self-correct its heading for straighter mowing and improve controllability on gentle slopes while producing less operator fatigue.


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 includes a Personalized Performance Interface, allowing performance management and troubleshooting at your fingertips. With the simple use of a tablet or smartphone, customization and adjustments are possible.
