New Exmark Vertex Stand-On Mowers

exmark vertex stand-on mowers

This year, Exmark has been firing on all cylinders. We’ve already covered their V-Series mowers, including the electric zero-turn. Well, now they’ve announced two new models: the Exmark Vertex E-Series and X-Series Stand-on Mowers.

If you’re looking to get into the commercial game or want to hit the refresh button on your fleet, these models may be for you. Here’s a rundown of what they have to offer.

Exmark Vertex Stand-on Mowers Performance and Design

Choosing between the E-Series and the X-Series depends on a few factors. However, all of them center around your clients’ properties. Let’s explore what each one can do.

E-Series Stand-on Mowers

Exmark tells us that the E-Series Vertex is the stand-on mower of choice for gated backyards and other areas with limited access. So, this is probably the way to go if you have mainly suburban clientele.

Driving this mower is an electric start, twin-cylinder Kawasaki FS600V commercial engine. Right away, I liked this model. There are a lot of great engines out there, and Kawasaki is among them. We have several in the shop; one is 33 years old and runs like a champ.

  • Model: Exmark Vertex E-Series
  • Engine: Kawasaki FS600V
  • Deck options: 32 and 36 in

Thanks, in large part, to its HydroGear pumps and Parker wheel motors, this Exmark Vertex stand-on mower should reach speeds of up to 7.5 mph. Of course, that’s by no means the fastest we’ve seen. Indeed, it’s at the low end of the commercial spectrum, but for a model that’s ideal for gated yards and similar areas, it will certainly get the job done.

Moreover, you’ll have a single-point cut height adjustment system that enables you to cycle from 1 to 4.5 inches in quarter-inch increments.


  • Good for suburban jobs
  • Kawasaki FS600V w/ electric start


  • 7.5 mph may be too slow by some standards (depending on lot sizes)

X-Series Stand-on Mowers

Vertex X-Series Stand-on Mowers

If you’re working on larger properties, you’ll want to look at Exmark’s X-Series Vertex stand-on mowers.

Like its E-Series counterpart, this model utilizes a Kawasaki engine. But, in this case, it’s the more powerful FX1000. Furthermore, you have a 14-gallon tank and a mowing capacity of up to 7 acres per hour.

When you combine that with a 72-inch deck, your jobs will be considerably shorter.


  • Model: Exmark Vertex X-Series
  • Engine: Kawasaki FX1000
  • Deck options: 52, 60, and 72 in

In addition to the 72-inch, Exmark offers 52- or 60-inch options. However, regardless of which one you choose, all of them tout the brand’s proprietary UltraCut Series 6 decks, which they say results in a higher-quality cut.


  • Large deck options
  • Kawasaki FX1000 engine
  • Large cutting capacity


  • No notable drawbacks
