Kick Some Grass

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BOB-CAT, a leading brand of commercial walk-behind and zero-turn riding mowers, introduces the new BOB-CAT CRZ, an all-new consumer zero-turn mower line that brings professional-grade power and performance to the residential zero-turn riding mower market. With models that come in 48-, 52-, and 61-inch deck sizes – all powered by rugged Kawasaki engines – and a starting price under $5,000, the new BOB-CAT CRZ zero-turn makes it affordable for do-it-yourself home landscapers to tame their terrain like the pros this mowing season.

A great cut every time. The new BOB-CAT CRZ features BOB-CAT’s all-new TufDeck™ Cutting System that features a patented double-wave baffle for maximum airflow and lift – making grass stand up and take what’s coming to it from high-lift cutting blades that spin at up to 18,000 feet per minute with a large impact-resistant discharge chute that fans clippings to eliminate clumping for a crisp clean finish on the first pass. Height adjustable anti-scalp ball rollers fluidly follow the contours of the most undulated turf. The CRZ’s wide stance and turf friendly rear drive wheels provide sure footing on hills and slopes as well.

BOB-CAT keeps you mowing. The formed and welded reinforced 10 gauge steel TufDeck is built to take whatever the ground can throw at it. And the CRZ’s open frame design allows easy access to operator controls, engine, and vital components that make regular maintenance quick and easy too.
