Six new models bring depth, improvements to extensive lawn & garden equipment lines

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 19, 2015 /CNW/ - DIY homeowners who can't wait for lawn mowing season to begin have another reason to be excited as spring approaches – the launch of the new Z200 series of residential, zero-turn riding mowers from Husqvarna, the world's largest producer of outdoor power equipment.

The Z200 models – Z242F, Z248F, Z246, Z246i, Z254 and Z254i – add depth to Husqvarna's already extensive line of lawn & garden equipment, thanks to improved ergonomics, functionality, refinement, deck options and other features that improve and simplify the mowing experience.
