Hydro-Drive Float Deck

A SPECIES ALL ITS OWN THAT'S A POWERFUL FORCE OF NATURE

All decked out and ready to mow, the new BOB-CAT® Float Deck Hydro Walk-Behind features a true float style DuraDeck™.

Similar to the design of our zero-turn mower decks, it follows the contours of hilly and undulating terrain without scalping.

The float deck is designed to move independently of the drive and caster wheels, allowing the deck to follow the contours of the ground. Single point height of cut adjustment easily raises and lowers the deck. Flat free front caster wheels keep you rolling, no matter what’s under the grass.

"I own the BOB-CAT 52" Walk-behind and love it! I want to stay with the machine that works for me."
