Courier™ 23/48



Introducing the Courier™ Residential Zero Turn Mower.

Along with the exclusive Suspension Comfort System™ and commercially-inspired features such as fully-welded frames and rugged front axles, the all new Courier also brings new levels of utility to the yard through an integrated rear cargo bed† (standard on most models).

Key Features
  • More Than Just A Zero Turn Mower: Though it offers a great quality of cut, the integrated rear cargo bed† along with its other great features make the Courier™ a versatile workhorse in a category of its own.
  • Commercially-Inspired Design: A fully-welded steel frame, thick-walled front axle, durable mower deck and ball bearings in the castor spindles ensure durability and a quality cut for years to come. Plus, an integrated parking brake adds even more convenience and ease-of-use.
  • Mower Deck Options: Deep profile or fabricated mower decks with fixed rollers assure excellent quality of cut leaving behind a beautiful lawn. The fabricated decks includes a lifetime limited warranty.**
  • Briggs & Stratton Professional Series™ Engine: This 724cc engine features ReadyStart® no prime, no choke starting system, which allows for easy automotive-style key-starts, time after time.
  • SCS™: The exclusive Suspension Comfort System™ complete with front or front & rear suspension allows you to feel 25% less impact while operating, resulting in enhanced comfort versus a non-suspension zero turn mower‡. Plus, an ergonomic mesh seat keeps you cool and comfortable.
