BOB-CAT unveils all-new commercial ZT mowers

BOB-CAT announces a new full line of commercial mowers for the 2019 season. The Next Generation Series of BOB-CAT mowers includes five new models: the Predator-Pro 7000, ProCat 6000MX, ProCat 6000, ProCat 5000 and QuickCat 4000. The company unveiled the new mowers to dealers and distributors at a launch meeting in Milwaukee on August 21.

Along with a ferocious new look, the Next Generation Series features improved serviceability, making it easier to reach parts for maintenance. The Predator-Pro 7000 and ProCat 6000MX include a new hitch and a swing-away back bumper, providing full access to the engine. This means faster tune-ups and fixes so that operators can get back to being productive and making money.

BOB-CAT also redesigned the operator controls, angling them towards the operator seat for ease of use and to eliminate operator fatigue. The handles have also been redesigned with an almond-shaped, ergonomic grip and a single-bolt height adjustment to make them more comfortable for each individual user. The seat also features improved ergonomics with weight and comfort adjustments for those days when mowing lasts all day long. All of these add up to maximum comfort and stability built for the pros to get through the long days and long seasons of mowing.

Finally, the new ride-on commercial mower models will all have the BOB-CAT top-line AirFX mowing deck. Introduced at the 2017 GIE+EXPO, the AirFX deck features a bullnose design for increased airflow and vacuum lift, for an unmatched quality of cut. Previously, the AirFX deck was only available on two BOB-CAT models.

In addition, the Predator-Pro 7000 and ProCat 6000MX stand even taller above the rest with these features:

Predator-Pro 7000

  • Top-of-the-line Kawasaki FX1000V engine, designed to provide major muscle and commercial-grade strength.
  • The single fastest mower in the industry, with speeds up to 19 mph and all-new 26-inch Zero-T drive tires.
  • Larger, more robust, ultra-stable, dual-tubed frame for increased durability on rough terrain.

ProCat 6000MX

  • V-twin barrel Kawasaki FX850V engine, offering major strength and a precise cut.
  • Increased ground speeds up to 12 mph with 24-inch Zero-T drive tires.
  • Superior transmission capabilities with HG ZT-4400 transaxles or HG pumps with HG wheel motors.
  • Larger, more robust, ultra-stable, dual-tubed frame for increased durability on rough terrain.

“Beyond the new features and design, this is more than a product launch; it’s the launch of who we are as a brand and company,” said Ron Scheffler, senior product manager for BOB-CAT. “We’re doing everything we can to empower our commercial customers to be fiercely independent, to pave their own way. And these mowers, with their improved comfort, performance and serviceability, do just that.”

The entire Next Generation Series is also backed by the industry-leading BOB-CAT MOW WITH CONFIDENCE limited warranties.

Customers can get their first look at all the new mowers in person at the 2018 GIE+EXPO, running from October 17-19 in Louisville.
