Exmark released a suspended operator platform for its Lazer Z commercial mowers.

A factory-installed upgrade available on 2015 Lazer Z E-Series and Lazer Z X-Series machines, the suspended operator platform uses coil-over hydraulic dampers to reduce the impact of bumps and vibration. The design provides 3.6-inches of travel in vertical and fore-aft directions, with trailing arms to limit lateral travel and increase operator stability.

“We designed our suspended operator platform to be easy to adjust for any size or weight of rider, regardless of whether they prefer a softer luxury car ride or a stiffer sports car ride quality,” said John Swanson, Exmark senior product manager. “There’s no harsh bottoming, regardless of operator weight. Adjustments can be made quickly in the shop or on the job site, without tools. Plus, the coil-over hydraulic dampers are designed to last the life of the machine, making the system virtually maintenance-free.”

The suspended operator platform includes a new seat that includes the company’s patented Iso-Mount isolation system, which provides a controlled .75-inch of lateral and .5-inch of vertical isolation. The new seat is designed with Elastomeric Vibration Control stretch fabric and plush foam padding, which the company said enhances the productivity and long-term comfort of the operator.
