Electrifying Fuel Efficiency

BOB-CAT Brings Electronic Fuel Injection to ProCat and FastCat Pro Zero-Turn Mower Lines

BOB-CAT, a leading brand of commercial walk-behind and zero-turn riding mowers, brings Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) efficiency to their FactCat Pro and ProCat lines of commercial zero-turn mowers.

Powerful yet fuel thrifty Kohler ECV EFI engines power four new mowers from BOB-CAT. New EFI models include 52- and 61-inch deck midsize ProCat zero-turns as well as 52- and 61-inch deck compact FastCat Pro zero-turns. All models provide exceptional fuel-efficiency – up to 25% better fuel economy than non- fuel injected models. With BOB-CAT’s top-of-the-line Predator-Pro DFI models that come in 61- and 72- inch decks and provide up to 30% better fuel economy over non-fuel injected models through digital fuel injection, BOB-CAT now offers six fuel defying commercial zero-turn mowers.

New EFI models feature all of the signature attributes of durability, cut quality, and ease of ownership that have made BOB-CAT mowers the choice of professional landscapers and homeowners alike for over 40 years including BOB-CAT’s signature DuraDeckTM with extreme discharge system, patented double- wave baffles, and extra wide discharge opening – an exclusive system that dries and lifts grass straight up for a superb cut you can only get from a BOB-CAT.
