Super fast, powerful riding lawn mower with huge cutting deck and zero-turn technology

If you have a really large yard with lots of trees, hills, flower beds, and so on, this is a great mower to check out. It’s easy to maneuver around all those obstacles with the zero-turn technology, and mowing goes by really quickly thanks to the huge cutting deck and fast drive speed. The Swisher ZTR2766BS Response also has a great engine that’s durable and reliable.

27HP Briggs & Stratton engine

That reliable engine is a 27HP Briggs & Stratton. These engines are designed to last and offer a quieter operation than other riding lawn mowers. With all that power, you can mow frequently for years to come and not worry about anything besides regular maintenance.

66-inch cutting deck

The Briggs & Stratton is powering a fantastic cutting deck. At 66 inches, it has one of the widest cutting paths which means even faster mowing with fewer passes. It’s made of fabricated steel and three gator blades with mulch capabilities, so you know your grass is being well-taken care of. The deck also has a foot-assisted lift for easy height adjustment.

Hydro Gear 2800 transmission

In terms of transmission, the Hydro Gear 2800 is high-quality. It offers smooth and precise control, and is heavy-duty with increased protection from leaks so you don’t have to worry about the mower failing soon after you get it.



The Swisher Response is fast. It drives 8MPH both forward and backwards, so you can mow a large lawn much faster than you would with a slower zero-turn mower. Combine that with the maneuverability of the mower and you can mow several acres in only an hour.


This mower is expensive, so you want it to last a long time. It has a welded steel frame and commercial-grade materials so it is built to last. The casters are also very solid and large, so the whole mower is better supported even in very rough, hilly terrain.

Easy to use

The Swisher ZTR2766BS includes the new Rapid Response control system, which provides you as a user with more comfort and control over the mower. It’s extremely easy to adjust the mower’s height, speed, and direction with the joystick-style and pedal controls.



This mower is very expensive. Unless you have a really large lawn with lots of obstacles and rough terrain, you’d probably be better off buying a more affordable riding lawn mower that will do the job just as fine. However, if you do have a really big lawn that’s been difficult to mow, the time and effort you get back by using the Swisher will definitely justify the price.

Overall Review

The main selling points on the Swisher ZTR2766BS Response zero-turn mowing are its huge cutting deck and ability to move quickly even on very rough lawns. The cutting power is also excellent and the Briggs & Stratton engine is reliable and durable. You’ll be able to mow acres of grass very quickly and comfortably.
