Quest E-Series

Discover what landscape pros already know.
For starters, they know if you want a professional cut, you’ll need a professional-grade mower—like an Exmark® Quest, the original premium residential zero turn. The Quest E-Series offers Exmark® powered engines, backed by a three-year consumer warranty. It delivers pro-like productivity with zero-turn precision for home lawns, mowing up to 2.8 acres per hour at speeds up to 7 mph. And, as you’d expect from a machine of this caliber, comfort is strictly first class—from the premium, ergonomically designed seat, to the cushioned control levers. Available with a choice of 34- or 42-inch Series 2 cutting decks.
