The family of BOB-CAT commercial walk-behind mowers includes both gear-drive and hydro models.
Classic Gear-Drive Walk-Behinds, BOB-CAT says, offer a combination of premium performance and exceptional value. Available in 32-, 36- and 48-inch decks, the Classic Pro features a 16-hp Kawasaki FS engine, heavy-duty zero-maintenance sealed spindles, reliable Peerless 700 gear drive, heavy-duty electric clutch, adjustable rear axle, and optional bagging and mulching capabilities.
Hydro Walk-Behinds offer a choice of control systems. The SoftGrip EZ pistol-grip control system is easier on the hands and provides improved control. The Z-Control operator system is similar to the operator controls of a zero-turn riding mower. The ergonomic design reduces hand and wrist strain in operation, and the built-in operator presence controls make driving the Z-Control much more efficient.
BOB-CAT Hydro walk-behinds come in 36-, 48- and 54-inch fixed DuraDeck cutting decks with an extreme side-discharge system. A floating-deck model is being brought back to the lineup this spring (2014). Dual hydraulic pumps feature wheel motors that allow independent power to each wheel for superior control and maneuverability. Powerful Kawasaki FS engines offer the speed to cut up to 6 mph.
