  • 5-1/2” deep profile cutting deck offers improved vacuum and grass processing.

JOHNSON CREEK, Wis. (October 17, 2017) – For commercial cutters who demand a rugged mower deck that delivers a manicured cut, the new BOB-CAT® commercial AirFX cutting system provides a better quality of cut and more uniform dispersal of clippings. BOB-CAT, a leading manufacturer of commercial-quality turf mowers, is offering the new AirFX cutting system on its 52” and 61” ProCat and Predator-Pro commercial zero-turn mowers.

Unlike competitive mower decks with traditional baffle arrangements, the AirFX offers a more effective cutting chamber and better air flow under the deck for more efficient grass cutting, processing and discharge. A 5-1/2” deep profile deck offers improved vacuum and grass processing; gapped baffles create more efficient air flow resulting in better clipping dispersal, less clumping and improved deck cleanliness; and a bull nose design allows grass to spring back up before it reaches the cutting chamber for a cleaner cut.

Thanks to a dual 10-gauge steel top deck, 10-gauge steel bolt-on baffles and three-gauge steel leading and trim edges, the AirFX cutting system is highly durable, touting a limited lifetime warranty*.

“The AirFX cutting system will get professional cutters through the toughest spring and harshest summer, regardless of growth conditions,” says Ron Scheffler, Product Manager for BOB-CAT®.  “They can count on it to deliver exceptional cut quality while minimizing clogging and the need for double cutting.”
