Introducing the NEW BOB-CAT Predator-Pro LP-61, Propane-Powered Zero-Turn Riding Mower.

Leave it up to Schiller Grounds Care to find a way so that commercial cutters don’t have to sacrifice performance when using an alternative fueled mower. The new BOB-CAT Predator-Pro LP-61 has all of the power and performance features that are the signature of the commercial Predator-Pro line. The only difference...These new units are powered by a formidable 30-hp Generac 990 engine that affords the new units all of the power associated with a Predator-Pro commercial mower with the added ability to cut Ozone forming emissions by greater than 50% over gasoline burning engines, insuring cutting that is green and clean.

The Predator-Pro LP-61 is a no-hassle propane-powered commercial zero-turn rider that utilizes liquid withdrawal – no conversion system needed and no costly, specialty tanks required. The Generac 990 engine is fueled by the same common liquid withdrawal propane tanks and technology that forklift trucks utilize - giving users easy access to a readily available fuel source and replenishment system. 

Benefits of the NEW Predator-Pro LP-61:

  • Dependable, hardworking Generac® 30-hp Engine - designed specifically to use liquid propane (LP) fuel while reducing ozone forming emissions by over 50% versus air cooled gasoline engines*. 
  • An ideal mower choice for government contract jobs and municipalities.
  • Cleaner burning propane fuel reduces engine deposits and extends engine life. 
  • No–Hassle Fuel Replenishment System - uses two (2) – 33.5 lb. standard liquid withdrawal propane tanks – no specialty tanks or conversion kit needed.
  • Your choice of 61" side discharge DuraDeck™ or a new 61" rear discharge deck that allows trimming on both sides of the mower. 
  • Dual Choice 2-year/2000-hour or 5-year/500-hour warranty with a lifetime warranty on deck, deck cradle and engine deck

The new BOB-CAT Predator-Pro LP-61 is available in dealerships now.
