New Simplicity Contender™ Targets "Prosumer Market"

New zero turn mower includes commercially-inspired features

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin  – Many homeowners have a desire to mow with commercially-inspired equipment, particularly homeowners with large lawns. To answer that need, the new Simplicity Contender™ zero turn mower targets the “prosumer” market with its professional-grade features and a price point starting at $5,0991

Homeowners looking for a commercial-quality zero turn mower can select from two models featuring a 25-gross hp2 Briggs & Stratton Commercial Series™ V-twin Engine; high-performance Hydro-Gear® ZT-3100® transaxles; a rugged welded steel frame; and a 52” or 61” fabricated mower deck with limited lifetime warranty3.  Both models feature speeds up to 8 mph, a 5.5 gallon fuel tank and 20” drive tires.

“The Contender is built in our Munnsville, N.Y. facility, a factory focused on producing zero turn mowers,” says Ryan Fredrickson, product manager.  “We have years of experience building premium-quality commercial mowers under our Ferris® brand name and we’ve borrowed from that experience to bring this product line to market at incredibly attractive ‘prosumer’ price points.”
