Zero Turning Radius Mowers Limited is an established Tauranga based family business that prides itself on selling quality products and providing excellent customer service. In 1987 ZTR Mowers brought the Zero Turning Radius concept to New Zealand with the Dixon ZTR. For over 25 years we have successfully distributed and supported the Dixon brand. In 2011 ZTR Mowers was again given the opportunity to exclusively distribute the Grasshopper Commercial Zero Turn brand or ride on mower (ZTR mowers was the importer for Grasshopper mowers in the mid 1990's). Since then the Grasshopper brand has proved to be a high quality product which is popular with our customers. We go to extra mile to provide spare parts and back up service. It is not uncommon for customers in the far corners of New Zealand to be known by name by those working at ZTR Mowers. A ride on mower with a Zero Turning Radius is exceptionally manoeuvrable and can turn on the spot. This achieved through hydraulic motors which independantly drive each rear wheel. Speed and directional control is through two levers.
