Exmark Quest Zero-Turn Mower

Does Exmark hit the spot with its residential battery-powered zero-turn?

Over the years, Exmark has earned an almost indelible reputation for commercial gas equipment. However, it’s no stranger to the battery-powered market, either. Indeed, it entered the Pro realm with its Vertex lineup of ZTs. Now, Exmark is hitting the residential landscape with its Quest V-Series electric zero-turn mower.

Of course, the immediate items on my mind were the performance and design features. Specifically, I was curious whether they stand out within the residential platform. Let’s take a closer look so that you can decide what you think.

Exmark Quest V-Series Zero Turn Performance

Let’s start with the heart of the Quest model. Driving this mower are the brand’s 60V Flex-Force batteries. In total, you’re looking at four 10Ah packs. That’s enough to run this 42-inch ZT for roughly one hour. However, you have the option of adding two more batteries, which will boost your runtime by an additional 30 minutes. I estimate you’ll cover 2 acres or so.

In my opinion, that puts the Exmark Quest V-Series zero-turn within the ballpark of competing residential electric mowers.

Now, while the runtime may not be exceptional, there are some redeeming qualities here. For example, this electric ZT comes with a sequential 6-port charger, which can get your batteries back to 100% in less than an hour. With the stock battery loadout, that’s about 3.5 hours for a full charge cycle (all packs). If you’re using six batteries, it’s 5 hours.

Key Specs

  • Batteries: Four or Six 60V (10Ah) packs
  • Runtime: Up to 1.5 hrs
  • Charge time: 3.5 hrs (4 packs); 5 hrs (6 packs)

In terms of cutting, Exmark equipped the Quest zero-turn with two 21.6-inch blades, which operate at 17,000 fpm. Meanwhile, the drive system offers speeds up to 7 MPH in forward and 3.5 MPH in reverse. Again, that’s about right for a residential mower.

Cutting Specs

  • Deck size: 42 in
  • Blade size: Two 21.6 in
  • Blade speed: 17,000 fpm
  • Cutting capacity: ~ 2 acres

Exmark Quest V-Series Zero-Turn Design

On the build side of things, Exmark went with a 10-gauge unibody steel frame.

They essentially went the same route with the deck, which they fabricated using 10-gauge steel on the top, 12-gauge steel on the sides, and 7-gauge steel for the front bumper. Moreover, the deck offers a cutting height range of 1.5 – 4.5 inches.
