Citation XT 27/52 (5901267)



You've got a big yard, big trees and a big job ahead of you…it's time you had the mower that's up to the task. Built with a powerful commercial-grade engine, a reengineered suspension system and the choice of a 52-inch or 61-inch fabricated mower deck, the Citation® XT makes short work of any big job.

  • Briggs & Stratton® Engine: Built for zero turn mowers and designed to perform under harsh, demanding conditions. With its patented five-step integrated cyclonic air management system, the Commercial Series Engine provides the ultimate dust and debris protection for extended engine life.
  • Fabricated Mower Deck: The rugged fabricated mower deck is made from 10-gauge steel, with reinforced top, side skirts, corners and a steel front edge to ensure durability and a quality cut for years to come. With limited lifetime warranty**.
  • Suspension & Comfort: Simplicity offers comfortable commercial-style mowing with a front- and rear-wheel suspension system for increased mowing productivity. It also features a comfortable high back seat, adjustable steering levers, convenient controls and padded footrests.
  • Control Panel: Every control is right at your fingertips: key switch, choke throttle, electric PTO switch for mower engagement, hour meter, cup holder and fuel gauge.
  • Height-Of-Cut: The easy-to-adjust, foot-operated, 16-position height-of-control can be moved in 1/4-inch increments and is clearly visible to the operator.
  • Pivoting Front Axle: A smooth ride and a smooth cut. The pivoting front axle not only has ride-dampening front suspension shocks, but also supports the mower deck and allows it to follow the contours of the ground for a beautiful scalp-free lawn.
  • Hydro-Gear® Transaxles: Designed for larger commercial application the Hydro-Gear® ZT-3400™ Transaxles are capable of delivering up to 225 ft.-lbs. of continuous torque delivering smooth, infinitely variable speed and bi-directional control in a durable integrated package.
