Greenworks MaximusZ Zero-Turn Mower

greenworks maximusz

There was a ton of gear to see at last year’s Equip Expo in Kentucky. The event gives lawn care Pros and people like us three days to visit with manufacturers from around the globe. Of course, Greenworks was on hand to participate, and the MaximusZ zero-turn (7422302) was among the models that they showcased.

To be sure, this residential mower has plenty to offer. But is it the right fit for your lawn care needs? To help you decide, here’s a rundown of the core performance and design elements.

Greenworks MaximusZ Zero-Turn Performance

Starting with the heart of this model, the 7422302 runs on four 60V (8.0Ah) batteries, along with two suitcase-style packs. According to Greenworks, this unit delivers the equivalent of a 31-hp gas mower. Based on what they tell us, you can expect over two hours of runtime, which Greenworks says is a new standard for residential mowing.

While that may be a matter of debate, I feel confident saying that the brand has done a nice job with its riding gear’s battery systems. A good example is the Greenworks TBDUTV , which they announced around the same time as the MaximusZ. This 60V utility vehicle will give you up to 20 miles per charge.

  • Model: Greenworks MaximusZ 7422302
  • Brushless motor
  • Battery: Two 60V (8.0Ah); two suitcase-style
  • Runtime: ~ 2.25 hrs
  • Charge time: ~ 3.5 hrs
  • Deck sizes: 54 & 60 in
  • Speed: 8 mph
  • Mowing capacity: 3.5 acres (54 in); 5 acres (60 in)

Returning to the MaximusZ, you’re looking at about 3.5 hours to fully recharge the battery. That’s not too shabby for a residential mower.

With regard to cutting, the 7422302 incorporates three low-profile deck motors, generating blade speeds as high as 17,000 feet per minute. I also like the deck’s 14 height positions, enabling you to cycle through settings within a range of 1.5 to 4.5 inches. This gives you plenty of options for fine-tuning your cut.

The 60-inch MaximusZ can mow 5 acres on a single charge. The 54-inch can mow 3.5 acres.

As for deck sizes, you have a choice of either 54 or 60 inches. Greenworks says the 60-inch unit can tackle 5 acres on a single charge. You’ll get 3.5 acres with the 54-inch.

Greenworks MaximusZ Zero-Turn Design

On the design side of things, my favorite feature is the dump bed. This isn’t something you often see on a zero-turn, which is one of the reasons it caught my eye at Equip Expo. Thanks to this rather nice touch, you’ll be able to handle tasks typically reserved for lawn and garden tractors.

In terms of the numbers, Greenworks says that the Maximus Z can haul 200 pounds and tow 300.

Another impressive design element is the electric takeoff output port. Now, I’ve seen these on other battery-powered mowers, including the Ryobi 80V lawn tractors.

What this does is transform the 7422302 into a rideable generator that can power an array of accessories, such as a bagging kit or blower. That means you don’t need a secondary power source, which significantly boosts this model’s convenience factor.

Finally, this zero-turn comes equipped with a rollover protection system and LED lights for work sessions that run into the darker hours. And, hey, because this mower’s electric, those dark hours can be morning or night.
