BOB-CAT has introduced the 2011 BOB-CAT mower lineup. The 2011 line of BOB-CAT mowers, which includes commercial walk-behinds, residential zero-turns and three levels of commercial zero-turn riding mowers, is all new for 2011 with fuel systems that meet 2011 EPA exhaust and evaporative emission requirements. Compliance aside, beyond the tank, there are many new patent-pending features in the new line.
Features of the new 2011 BOB-CAT mower line:
EPA Compliant Fuel System – Innovative Design: Tank and fuel system meet EPA compliance without loss of fuel cap and without sacrificing fuel capacity.
Operator Comfort – New ISO-Ride Comfort System: Elastomeric bearings isolates operator from vibration at all touch points – hands, feet and seat for a smooth ride regardless of terrain or length of use.
Custom Fit – Easy to locate and adjust controls and seat, offer rider comfort setting flexibility. Increased legroom, a convenient Foot Assist Lift Pedal that can quickly be mounted on the left or the right side for user preference, and an ergonomic lower profile allow for operator height versatility.
Large Discharge Opening – 20 percent or larger depending on model: For wider more even grass dispersal. Works in unison with a blade tip speed of 18,500 (fpm), creating lift that cuts grass evenly and discharges at a higher volume to eliminate wet grass clumping and clogging under mower deck.
Low Center of Gravity – up to 2-inches lower for visibility and hill hugging stability.
Tension Mount Motion Control Levers – Eliminates lost motion in hand controls for smoother operation with no “arm flapping” in transport extending control handle life.
Easy Access to Maintenance & Service Points – Single Belt Drive: with no components to remove makes changing a belt out in the field quick and easy.
No-Flat Caster Wheel Tires: Soft, Pneumatic-like ride without the worry.
Oversized Hydraulic Reservoir with larger fittings: Easier to maintain with better access. Lowers hydraulic temperature and pump vacuum for quieter pump operation and longer life.
Broad Cut Height Adjustment – 1inch – 5.5 inches: More cutting options allows for a greater variety of cuts. Allows for scalping in the South and overseeding in the fall.
