BOB-CAT, a leading brand of walk-behind and zero-turn riding lawn mowers, introduces its newest mower, the BOB-CAT XRZ. The XRZ is a rugged, professional-grade zero-turn mower designed for large property owners and homeowners who want to mow like the professionals.
The new BOB-CAT XRZ features a comfortable, high-backed elastomeric vibration control (EVC) seat, which provides all-day comfort. Wide, 22-inch rear-drive wheels ensure a smooth ride, help protect the turf and provide increased traction on slopes.
The XRZ features the new BOB-CAT TufDeck™ Professional-Grade Mower Deck with a patented Double-Wave Baffle System that makes grass stand up for a clean cut. The XRZ is available in 48-, 52- and 61-inch deck sizes. Cutting height is easily adjusted with a quick-lift foot pedal that allows cutting heights from 1.5 to 4.875 inches.
Powered by reliable Kawasaki® FR engines and propelled by Hydro-Gear® ZT-3100 transaxles, the new BOB-CAT XRZ mows at speeds up to 8 miles per hour. The large, 6-gallon fuel tank gives the XRZ plenty of runtime for cutting even the largest lawns.
"We often hear from homeowners who want a professional-grade zero-turn mower, but don't quite need all of the premium features of our PREDATOR-PRO™, PROCAT™ or FASTCAT™ PRO mowers," says BOB-CAT President and COO Pat Cappucci. "The XRZ is perfect for homeowners who want to mow like a pro, as well as contractors who are new to the lawn maintenance industry."
