BOB-CAT, a leading brand of commercial walk-behind and zero-turn riding mowers, has new offerings in their compact, lightweight FastCat line of zero-turn riding mowers. With new engine options in their FastCat RZ line and two new models in their FastCat Pro line, BOB-CAT is packing more value and premium features in these new choices for homeowners and professional landscapers alike.
The FastCat RZ is designed for the large property owner who wants an affordable, commercial quality zero-turn mower that delivers a professional quality of cut and superior ride quality. The line now includes powerful Kawasaki FR engines with choice of 52 in. deck with a Kawasaki FR651V engine or 61 in. deck with a Kawasaki FR691V engine. The FastCat RZ doesn’t skimp on quality and performance – outfitted with BOB-CAT’s DuraDeck with extreme discharge system that delivers on the quality of cut and much, much more. FastCat RZ’s offer a mowing speed of up to 8 miles per hour, 9 gallon capacity dual fuel tanks – more than enough for even large properties, maintenance-free cutter spindles and caster wheels, adjustable high-back spring support seat, armrests and adjustable drive levers that allow the RZ to custom-fit to the operator.
The FastCat Pro packs the commercial power, durability and performance of bigger machines in a smaller, lighter-weight package. The line, which currently offers models with 36-, 42- and 48-inch decks, has expanded to include two new larger deck models. The new FastCat Pro 52 sports a 52 in. side discharge deck and Kawasaki FX691V engine. The new FastCat Pro 61 utilizes a 61 in. side discharge deck and a Kawasaki FX730V engine. Both new models utilize canister air filtration and feature BOB-CAT’s DuraDeck with extreme discharge system, new patent pending double wave baffle system, extra wide discharge opening and molded rubber chute. Dual Hydro-Gear ZT-3400 hydrostatic transaxle independent drives with 12cc pumps deliver smooth maneuverability. Coupled with 23 in. drive wheels and 13 in. caster wheels, you can cruise at speeds up to 10 mph. Large 9 gallon capacity duel fuel tanks keep you mowing with less downtime in refueling. A new custom seat with elastromeric radial bearing and seat suspension eliminates vibration to the operator and prevents “topping out” and “bottoming out” providing all day ride comfort. FastCat Pro models feature the same industry leading commercial warranty as BOB-CAT’s larger ProCat and Predator-Pro models, with up to two years/2,000 hours limited warranty plus lifetime parts and labor coverage on the frame and mower deck shell.
