Made in the USA and especially designed to fit the BOB-CAT range of zero turn mowers, the Pro 2B+ Catcher is an excellent add on to turn your BOB-CAT mower into a dedicated catching mower. There are a lot of great things about this system over standard catcher systems - but here are our Top Three:
Blower is situated halfway between deck exit and bags
This maximises the airflow created by the deck, and gives the grass a final push into the bag where it is most prone to blocking on standard units.
Super easy no-tool removal once fitted
Should you wish to switch to side discharge for a while - it is extremely simple to remove the boot and chute, unlike on traditional units where the whole blower assembly has to be removed from the deck.
Blower runs off engine rather than deck
This provides maximum power while letting the deck do what it does best, cutting the grass and throwing it out. On traditional units, when you hit some long grass, the deck blades slow down which would cause the blower to slow and ultimately cause blockages.
Other Key Benefits:
- Works substantially better than systems with no blower unit, which block very easily in New Zealand
- Heavy duty 3-blade steel impellor breaks materials down and creates great airflow
- 7.5 bushel (250L) capacity over two bags
- Bags are simple and easy to remove for dumping of grass
- Robust design
The Peco Pro 2B+ is compatible with the following BOB-CAT Mowers:
- CRZ 48" and 52"
- XRZ 48"
- XRZ Pro 52" and 61"

How does the Pro 2B+ work?
Grass is discharged from the mowing deck in normal fashion, however is drawn into a chute immediately off the mower deck. A powerful blower is mounted onto the rear of the mower, providing substantial suction and forcing the grass up through the chute and into the rear bags.
How does the Pro 2B+ empty?
The Pro 2B+ catcher empties simply by lifting the rear cover and removing the bags (2x) individually. The bags are easy to handle and allow the grass to be dumped either in a heap or into a bin.
How easy is it to revert back to side discharge?
Very simply. The boot is removed off the side of the deck with a single pin, and the chute is removed. About a 3 minute job. For larger areas of side discharge, we would recommend also removing the blower belt to reduce wear. This only takes a few seconds to do.
Will this collect damp / long grass?
The Pro 2B+ collects damp and long grass well providing it is driven to the conditions. From our experience, this system performs significantly better than standard side to rear catchers due to the blower position being at the pinch point. We have even had excellent results from this system in Hokitika, on the South Island's West Coast - one of the wettest towns in the country!
What is the finish like?
The Peco Pro 2B+ gives a beautiful groomed and striped finish, giving your lawn that elusive bowling green appearance. It's also great for collecting leaves in autumns, reducing the volume of the material 3 to 1!
