The leader of the pack just got more ferocious. We've improved upon the Predator-Pro's ride comfort, discharge design, maintenance access and much more — without disturbing the power and maneuverability that's made this zero-turn mower the popular choice of professionals. And its EPA-compliant fuel system now holds 14 gallons for fewer stops along the way to increased productivity and industry-leading performance.


Landscape professionals know the importance of a comfortable ride. The ISO-Ride comfort system prevents bottom- and top-outs, and keeps operators fresh and productive over the longest days. Predator-Pro sports a custom operator zone that adjusts easily for a comfortable ride. The custom operator zone also provides maximum control with minimal effort.


Setting the standard for discharge design, the Extreme Discharge system allows you to produce a world-class cut on all types of turf.

Providing improved clipping dispersal and preventing scalping and damage to turf, the DuraDeck helps you take charge and get the job done right. Equipped with a new resilient molded rubber discharge chute for improved clipping dispersal, BOB-CAT® keeps you moving forward.


Maintenance hassles become a thing of the past when you combine durable construction and the new easy-access design on the Predator-Pro zero turn mower. Expedite routine maintenance with easy-access to the mower deck, hydraulic reservoir and filter. Never miss important service milestones with the convenient control panel now equipped with an hour meter for maintenance service reminders for the engine oil and filter, engine air filters, and hydraulic oil and filter.


Predator-Pro rider mowers allow you to maximize productivity with deck sizes up to 72-inches, with various engine options, and a 2011 EPA-compliant fuel system with a 14 gallon fuel capacity. These mowers zero-turn around landscape obstacles with precision, keeping you moving forward.

The new Kawasaki Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) engine utilizes an electronic governor system (E-Gov). The digital fuel injection system with E-GOV ensures your mower provides the best fuel economy by reacting to changing load conditions instantaneously and metering and monitoring fuel requirements accordingly. Field tests indicated up to 30 percent less fuel usage compared to non-fuel injected commercial engines used in comparable turf conditions. Zero-turn mowers equipped with DFI and E-GOV equal less money in your fuel tank and more money in your pocket!
