Not long ago, choosing battery-powered gear usually meant settling for a tradeoff between power and runtime. But not so much anymore. Indeed, in many cases, cordless equipment now matches and even surpasses gas-fueled solutions in overall performance. Perhaps more noteworthy is that this applies not only to smaller handheld equipment but also to large commercial tools. Take, for instance, the Exmark V-Series Electric Zero Turn.
Here’s a look at how this update to the brand’s Lazer Z lineup can offer Pros a no-compromise alternative to gas.

Exmark V-Series Electric Zero Turn Overview
Exmark is certainly a name synonymous with commercial OPE. And, like most of the models in its mower fleet, the V-Series performance features speak to why that is.
The V-Series is the Exmark Lazer Z zero turn lineup’s first electric mower. Based on the numbers, we think it’s a respectable debut.
For one, this ZT provides an impressive 7-hour runtime per charge, giving you a solid day’s work. Behind that performance is the 60V 23.4 kWh HyperCell battery system.
