Efficiency*: SurePath efficiency and savings statistics are intended for illustrative purposes only. The efficiency and savings information presented is mathematically extrapolated from the measured overlap improvements between a Cub Cadet SurePath-equipped commercial zero-turn mower with a 72-inch cutting deck compared with an otherwise identically equipped Cub Cadet mower with traditional lap bar steering controls operated by a variety of professional landscapers in controlled conditions. The overlap improvements were measured by a third-party testing firm, which also extrapolated those results based on the commercial mowing industry norms and standards they identified. Actual results in the field will vary based on operator preferences, mowing conditions, terrain, site configurations and other factors
