CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cub Cadet has been honored with a Gold Stevie Award, the highest honor at the prestigious 2014 American Business Awards, for New Product Marketing Introduction of the Year.

The campaign taking top honors was the launch of the RZT S ZERO, an electric zero-turn riding mower with four-wheel steering and steering wheel control.

With the win, the Cub Cadet RZT S ZERO is now in the running for a People’s Choice Stevie Award for Favorite New Product. Voting is open to the general public beginning in July. Winners will be honored at The American Business Awards’ new product and tech awards banquet in San Francisco in September.
