A New and More Civilized Beast.  Tamed for the homeowner, the BOB-CAT® CRZ zero-turning riding mowers provides legendary BOB-CAT® durability, cut quality, and ease of ownership with the comfort and performance you want for your own property. From a reliable Kawasaki® FR engine to our all-new TufDeck 10 gauge fabricated, welded and reinforced steel decks, and patented Double-Wave Baffle System, the CRZ may just be the very last mower you will ever need to buy.


Designed with your comfort in mind, the new BOB-CAT® CRZ features an adjustable high-back seat for improved comfort as you ride. Adjustable drive levers ensure a comfortable fit for all family members and ergonomically designed controls provide maximum comfort while you mow. Cutting height is easily controlled through the Quick-Lift Foot  pedal allowing for cutting ranges from 1.5 to 4.875 inches in quarter-inch increments.


The rugged fabricated Deck design of the new BOB-CAT® TufDeck Professional-Grade Mower with patented Double-Wave Baffle System makes grass stand up and take what's coming to it from blades that spin up to 18,000 fpm. The extra-wide polymer impact resistant discharge chute shrugs off dings while fanning clippings fine - eliminating clumps for a crisp clean cut. Choice of 48-, 52- or 61-inch decks.


The CRZ’s open frame design provides easy access to the engine, filters, belts, battery and more – taking the hassle out of routine maintenance. And, because all BOB-CAT® mowers share a common design, parts are readily available and affordable too.


The new BOB-CAT® CRZ is powered by reliable Kawasaki® FR engines and feature 20" drive wheels to produce a ground speed of up to 7 mph.  Coupled with a large 6 gallon fuel capacity fuel tank, you have more than enough power and run time to tackle the largest properties.
