Here is a nice example of a drill
and bolt mounting install done by Perry Pawelka on a Toro z4220
Several people have been asking
how the snowplows work with the Ryobi Electric Zero Turn Mowers.
Ryan Leestma of Michigan sent us photos of his unit. He installed
the mounting brackets by welding them to the front frame and
added dual rear wheels. He reports "Great its amazing
it will take me 5 minutes to do the whole driveway. Being able
to zero turn is a game changer! My battery life is excellent.
I could plow the driveway 8-10 times." Ryan is upgrading
his plow to the 5 ft wide model this week.
Ryan sent us a link to his Youtube video showing
how well this works.
Benjamin Reid of Waynesville Ohio sent
these photos and a description of how he used the clamp-on mounts
on his Cub Cadet ZT1 Zero Turn.
I received my order yesterday
and unboxed it. I wanted to share the little bit of tweaking
required to mount the universal adapter on a CubCadet 50"
Ultima ZT1. The front caster arms on the mower are asymmetric
and the left one is very short. The driver's floor mounts to
the frame there, and the floor holds one of two lights there
as well. Using the bolt-through adapter is possible because there
is a small access hole in the frame tube, but using/adding a
reinforcement plate for that bolt would be very difficult. I
decided to use the clamp style adapter.
Removal of the light is easy,
and the area that needs to be trimmed is thin and non-structural.
The attached pictures (might be out of order) show the small
amount of modification required. Care must be given not to cut
the wires running to the light in that area when grinding. One
a slot is ground, it helps to slide that bolt in first then position
the bracket and install the remaining bolts. Just need to pick
up some CubCadet Yellow Rustoleum paint to finish it off, the
gray is just a primer to inhibit rust.
The bottom line is that your
adapter works just fine on the Cub Cadet Zero-turn mowers sold
at Tractor Supply and Home Depot!
Here is a nice example sent in by Scott
Helsinger of how he could remove the footrest on his Timecutter
to be able to use the clamp-on mounts.
I ordered one of your 4 ft blades last
month and installed it as soon as it arrived. This morning I
got to try it out as we received between 5-7 inches of snow over
I have it attached to a Scag Freedom Z
(took a little to get it mounted) zero turn. I just wanted to
let you know it worked great. First time out it took a bit to
get used to and it was dark outside. Even though I did our 192
ft driveway in about 40 minutes.
Very pleased with the product!

Here are a couple of photos sent
in by Tim Trebian showing how he adapted the snowplow to his
Bad Boy Maverick Zero Turn Mower. Tim added a 12 volt ATV winch
and a rubber top flap to his unit to better suit his needs. Nice
Many people ask about adapting our snow
plows to the stander mowers. Howie Waldman sent in these photos
to show how he adapted the plow to his Wright Sentar. Great job
of thinking outside of the box!
I spoke to you on Monday about
adapting your zero turn plow to my Wright Sentar. I must say,
very fast shipping, it arrived in 2 days.
I attached some pictures to
show you how I adapted it for my mower. This same idea could
be used for any of the stand on mowers, since Wright, Toro, Exmark
and others are producing them now.
Thanks for the great plow,
I look forward to quickly clearing snow from my large driveway
Here is a nice group of photos
of a zero turn snowplow sent in by Joe Schoonover who has a Cub
Cadet Z-Force 60 with 23hp Kawasaki engine. J.J. the bulldog
seems to be impressed!
Hope your holidays were great. I wanted to drop you a line to
let you know how much I enjoy the plow. Attached are pictures
to show you how I mounted the blade to a Toro 5425 using the
pinch plates instead of drilling into my main support bar. I
just attached the pinch plate mounting bracket then attached
one bolt thru one of the original holes and because of the angle
of my frame I leveled the mounting bracket and drilled a extra
hole so that the bracket was level. Works great and I didn't
have to drill into my main frame of my new mower. Thanks again
and will be looking for new products to try out on my zero turn
It worked out with little effort and I'm very pleased. If someone
is in need of a recommendation please feel free to use this one
or they can contact me anytime. Happy New Year to all!!! 567-203-8327(cell)

We like to show upgrades made by our customers to make
the snowplows fit their individual needs better. Here is a great
I have had my Country Zero
Turn snow plow for a couple of seasons now and have been pleased
with the way it has performed, after some modifications. The
lift mechanism was unworkable with my Swisher Zero turn mower
so, I had to make changes before it could be used the first time.
With repeated use I realized another change had to be made to
the blade angle adjustment system.
Before the upgrade I had to:
De-glove for dexterity
Remove the hairpin from the bottom of the draw-pin (unseen).
Withdraw the draw-pin completely.
Angle the blade one-handed while aligning the draw-pin.
Find the small hole in the draw-pin (unseen) and insert the hairpin.
I constructed this device
to replace the draw-pin and eliminate the hairpin.
Since the up grade I only
Lift the draw-pin (while gloved).
Angle the blade slightly and release the draw-pin. Continue angling
the blade two-handed until the draw-pin drops.
No need for a hairpin, as
the springs hold the draw-pin in place. No frozen fingers and
hairpins dropped in the snow while searching for an elusive hole
in the draw-pin. No fussy alignment of holes to replace a free
I thought your former customers
might be interested in a similar upgrade to their blades, or
new customers might like this as an add-on.

My name is Tony Geraghty. Before winter started I bought your
snowplow. I have had several people looking in disbelief when
they see me using it. This morning I had a Mr. Taylor stop by
and ask me about it. He said that all winter long he has driven
by my house and seen it. He kept telling himself one of these
days I'm going to stop by and ask whoever lives there about the
snowplow. He said today is the day.
He asked me if ever had a problem with it and I told him no.
As a matter fact it works fantastic. I let him know that it took
me about 45 minutes to put the whole thing together. The assembly
was straightforward and easy. I went on to tell him not only
do I plow my own driveway but I plowed two of my neighbor's driveways.
I told him to feel free to look at how it's assembled on my
zero turn mower. He was impressed.
Anyway I gave him your website address: countryzeroturn.com.
So don't be surprised if you don't hear from him pretty soon.
Here is a nice photo submitted by Edd Higbee of the 4 ft wide
zero turn snowplow mounted to a John Deere Z225. Edd tells us
he had to do some custom fabrication on a zero turn mower that
small, but with a bit of custom work, it can be done!
Great Job Edd!
Christine Vance sent us this photo showing how she and her
husband adapted the clamp-on mount to use on their Craftsman
Zero Turn Mower. The caster frame did not have adequate strength
for pushing snow, so they took the L shaped clamp bracket, flipped
it over and bolted through the foot deck and into the frame.
Now THAT is putting American know-how to work!
Here is a great example of thinking outside the box
by Ron Watson. On Ron's Encore Zero Turn Mower, the control levers
set too close to his legs making the step-lift difficult to use.
He reversed the step-lift bar and added a Linear Actuator to
raise and lower the blade! We like to see American Ingenuity
at work making our products fit your individual needs.
Way to go Ron!
Today (1/6/2016) I completed my customer communication with
Country ZTR (Chad) regarding my dissatisfaction with the spreader
upon its arrival. I have had positive experiences with the snow
blade and replacement parts. I try to buy American made products
whenever it is reasonable to do so. Here is the list of concerns
expressed to the company in writing:
The small bag containing assembly pieces was missing items
from the assembly list and contained items not identified in
the assembly directions or parts breakdown.
The feed rate door would not slip past the agitator allowing
The plastic sleeve at the end of the support frame was cracked.
Because of the design of the operating rod it cannot be assembled
if you following the assembly directions exactly.
The placement of the O-belt guard prevents the fan from spinning.
The tabs for the 5/16 bolts are missing.
The bearing opposite the wheel pulley fell out during assembly.
While this list of flaws is extensive the response from the
companythey did offer a full refundis more troubling.
There was no expression of interest in the flaws or interest
in providing a replacement typical of a company that stands behind
its product. In fact they wrote: We do not believe a replacement
unit would be satisfactory Given that the product
appears to still be for sale by Country ZTR either they are delivering
a product that they believe to be unsatisfactory or they have
simply dismissed the facts of my customer feedback.

given a full refund
Here is a nice example of modifying the snow plow mounts and
lift bar to suit your individual Zero Turn!
Steve Amuso of Clarence NY sent in this photo and it looks
like he has also installed some nice LED lights! Steve's plow
setup has the poly strip inplace for use on concrete and asphalt
Great job Steve and we are sure you will be getting this plow
in action soon!
"The dethatcher seems like a great product though
haven't had a chance to use. Very heavy duty. Not to difficult
to put together as long as you lay everything out and follow
the instructions. SUPER FAST shipping. GREAT GREAT GREAT customer
service and communication. The only reasons I gave it a 4 is
because when I received it, the boxes were damaged (most likely
due to shipping)and the dethacher had a few scratches on it witch
I don't mind. I will be putting many more scratches on it I'm
sure. Also, One of the tines was in the way for mounting the
tine assembly to the main bar so I had to loosen the tine and
put the bolt in backwards to make it work and then put the tine
back on, on a slight angle. All and all though, especially for
the price, I believe this product is going to hold up and do
a great job dethatching for many years to come."

The plow has exceeded my expectations, and couldn't
have come at a better time with almost 20" of snow falling
last week. I uploaded a video of the plow on youtube, feel free
to use it if you like. I am impressed and will recommend it to
You probably dont get much fan mail,
but you should. Great piece of equipment! I cleared my drive,
3 neighbors, our private road out to the county road (1/2 mile),
and the back lot at our office.
Here is a nice video sent in by Fred Ziglar
of Hillsboro, Illinois. Fred modified the hand levers on his
zero turn mower to get additional clearance for his knees. This
video shows him moving a good amount of snow with his exmark
in a hurry!
Thank you so much for the help over the phone yesterday.
I got the plow mounted tonight.
Kevin O. Holgate, Ohio
Received the blade quickly after I ordered . Thank you.
Took us about 2 hrs. To install. Hardest part was the drilling
to mount brackets to mower. Once finished , it was like a tinker
toy. Nothing to it. Good instructions. I'm impressed with the
quality of the parts used. Nothing rinky dink. We will
have to make one modification to the bar that hooks on to foot
pedal. My long legs hit the steering control arms when holding
the blade in the up position. I think if we shorten that bar,
my legs will stretch out just like when I mow. Can't wait to
use it. My wife told me to buy it. She said once it gets installed,
it will never, ever snow again. I like the fact this is American
made and I feel you are good company to deal with. Very impressed
you closed for the holidays, giving employees time off to spend
with families. Classy. Thank you and all your people for a great
American product. Hope you have a terrific year.

I just wanted to send a picture of my Husky MZ5424S.
Sporting a new Country Zero Turn 5' plow!!! Let it snow!!!!

Over the past 5 months, I've purchased both the zero-turn
dethatcher and the zero-turn aerator attachments. Both are great
units, paid for themselves within 2 jobs, and seem to be great
investments. I appreciate the customer service you receive with
each order from these folks. I recommend them to other landscapers
when they're thinking of buying attachments for their mowers.

My 13 year old bought this with his money. With a few
minor modifications we got it together in about an hour. Move
snow well. Filled in the pot holes in my gravel driveway. He'll
make his money back!
Garrett K. Topeka, Kansas
The universal bar was hard to install. You should have
the brackets welded on. Only cost me $ 20.00.
Overall this company was great!!!!!!!!!!!
PS Better than paying $ 3000.00

I am very happy with my recent purchase of the Zero
Turn Tractor, snow plow. I have included some photographs. We
have pretty good snows in Northern Maryland. I am waiting for
the big snow (Murphy's law............... now that I have my
blade). I used the blade to clean up from a snow storm from 1
1/2 weeks ago. To give the tractor extra traction I inserted
some 5/16" sheet metal screws into the turf lugs. It gives
it a good bite on my hill, without the bulk, that snow chains
give. The purchase from your company went very smooth. I will
buy from your company again. I have shared photographs of my
plow with other zero turn owners who are impressed with it.
Thanks for your help,
Jim H. Whiteford, Maryland
"We dont get too much snow in
Cape Girardeau, Missouri, so alot of my friends looked at me
kinda funny when they saw the blade on the front of my zero turn
mower. They werent looking so funny when I drove by them
as they shoveled their drives this morning. Of course, I offered
We had about 8 inches last night and the photo is of me clearing
my Mini Storage Lot. The blade works well, but I need to make
a few modifications for my JD 425 to fit it properly. Ive
also added some pins and bolts for stability."
