Bob-Cat Introduces New XRZ Zero-Turn Mower

BOB-CAT, a leading brand of commercial walk-behind and zero-turn riding lawn mowers, introduces its newest mower, the BOB-CAT XRZ. The XRZ is a zero-turn mower developed for commercial contractors who are new to the professional landscape maintenance industry.

Equipped with a premium high-back elastomeric vibration control (EVC) seat, the XRZ provides lawn maintenance technicians with all-day comfort. Wide, 22-inch rear-drive wheels also help to smooth the ride over undulating terrain and provide increased traction on slopes.

The new BOB-CAT XRZ comes with the new BOB-CAT TufDeck™ Professional-Grade Mower Deck with patented Double-Wave Baffle System that makes grass stand up for a clean and professional quality of cut. The XRZ is available in deck sizes of 48-, 52- or 61-inch widths, and the cutting height can be quickly adjusted with the quick-lift foot pedal, allowing for cutting heights of 1.5 to 4.875 inches in quarter-inch increments.

The XRZ is powered by reliable Kawasaki® FR engines and Hydro-Gear® ZT-3100 transaxles that allow operators to mow at ground speeds up to 8 mph. Coupled with a large 6-gallon fuel tank, the XRZ gives operators plenty of runtime to cut even the largest of accounts.

“We designed the XRZ for contractors just getting into the industry that want dependable performance and features worthy of the BOB-CAT name at a price a new business owner can afford,” says BOB-CAT President and COO Pat Cappucci. “The XRZ is also perfect for homeowners who want to mow like professionals.”
