by Brianna Crandall — January 26, 2018 — BOB-CAT, a US-based manufacturer of professional-quality turf mowers, recently introduced its new XRZ Pro RS zero-turn mower. The new unit is said to be loaded with commercial-grade features required by lawn care professionals and facilities management (FM) professionals, whether you are managing an education, healthcare, industrial or corporate campus — and all at a value-driven price point.
Three models are available for the 2018 mowing season, featuring powerful Kawasaki FX Series engines and a choice of 48”, 52” or 61” mower decks. The BOB-CAT TufDeck Pro 10-gauge fabricated, welded and reinforced steel mower deck includes the BOB-CAT patented Double Wave baffle system for maximum vacuum and lift. Hydro-Gear ZT-3400 twin hydrostatic transaxles are engineered to offer smooth performance and agility.
Commercial cutters will experience improved run times and productivity thanks to dual fuel tanks with a 9.5-gallon capacity and a forward speed of up to 10 mph, says BOB-CAT. And they can comfortably work all day, thanks to a high-back fully mechanical suspension seat with armrests.
The new XRZ Pro RS also comes with an aggressive new look including black wheel rims, black belt covers and a darker seat. It is backed by an industry-leading six-year/1200-hour Mow with Confidence warranty.
Ron Scheffler, product manager for BOB-CAT, stated:
The new BOB-CAT XRZ Pro RS is our latest professional-grade mower built for the rigors of commercial mowing. Based on 60 years of engineering and manufacturing expertise, this latest edition to our zero-turn mower line comes loaded with commercial-grade features. Importantly, it combines superior value with the toughness and reliability customers have come to expect from BOB-CAT.
