The BOB-CAT XRZ is ideal for large lifestyle blocks and commercial mowing. Step up to the XRZ from the CRZ, and get commercial ZT-3100 transaxles, a smoother and more comfortable ride, and a 6 Year / 600 hour warranty.


The XRZ is a commercial spec mower that is ideal for large lifestyle blocks and commercial mowing. It has commercial spec transaxles, a tough, durable design and a great warranty, along with premium added comfort features to give a great ride.

Industry Leading Warranty

The BOB-CAT XRZ has a 6-year / 600 hour limited warranty. Unlike other zero turn mower warranties, this covers warranty costs of parts and labour for the full period - unlike other brands in which only parts cost is covered after just three years.

Productivity & Durability

The BOB-CAT® XRZ line is powered by reliable Kawasaki® FR engines and commercial drive system powered by Hydro-Gear® ZT-3100 transaxles to produce a ground speed of up to 13km/h. It has a one piece, welded steel frame - unlike the bolted or riveted cee-section frame many other zero turns have.

Coupled with a large 23L capacity fuel tank, you have more than enough power and run time to tackle the largest properties. The XRZ Cutting height can be easily controlled on-the-fly with the quick-lift foot pedal allowing for cutting ranges from 1.5 to 4.875 inches in quarter-inch increments or instantly as needed.

Comfort and Control

Designed with your comfort in mind, the new BOB-CAT® XRZ™ features a premium high back elastomeric vibration control (EVC) seat with armrests that reduce vibration for all-day riding comfort. Wide 22-inch rear drive wheels help smooth the ride over undulating terrain and provides added traction on slopes.

Cut Quality

The rugged design of the new BOB-CAT® TufDeck™ Professional-Grade Mower Deck with patented Double-Wave Baffle System makes grass stand up and take what's coming to it from blades that spin up to 18,800 fpm. An extra-wide polymer impact resistant discharge chute shrugs off dings, while fanning clippings fine - eliminating clumps for a crisp clean cut.

The cut quality in New Zealand is greatly improved thanks to the adjustable Deck Lip, and the Double Wave Baffles, which make this mower more capable of mowing in our long, wet conditions.

Reduced Maintenance & Easy Service

The XRZ’s open frame design provides easy access to the engine, filters, belts, battery and more – taking the hassle out of routine maintenance. Flip up foot plate allows for easy access to belts and pulleys for cleaning and service. And, because all BOB-CAT® mowers share a common design, parts are readily available and affordable too.

Why upgrade to the XRZ from the CRZ?

Many of our customers choose to upgrade from the CRZ to the XRZ zero turn mower to get additional comfort and speed, plus commercial transaxles. Typically, this is for large lifestyle block / rural customers or mowing contractors who are doing higher hours than residential type users.

It is also exceptional value for money considering the commercial build.

Customer Reviews

Jeremy Rolston
Very smooth ride on this mower, I'm very happy that I upgraded a little bit more to get a cushy seat, it's a much more comfortable ride. Cut quality is absolutely beautiful at our lifestyle block, making it look like a golf course. 6 year warranty is exceptional in this day and age compared to a year and half on other mowers I looked at. Couldn't be more happy with the customer service as well.

Thanks Jeremy, we appreciate your feedback and video!

Absolutely brilliant – actually look forward to mowing the lawns! I was thinking about another brand but once I saw the Bobcat was immediately drawn to it. Really like the robustness of the machine with heavy gauge material, it looks and is solid. If I could change one thing, maybe a second cup holder, but really it's perfect the way it is. Cheers Paul

Review on Bobcat Ride on Mower XRZ 48", the mower has run up around 9 hours on the clock, so I've had time to compare it with my old Walker MB-18 previously owned. Both mowers have their strengths and weaknesses, but overall I am very pleased with the purchase. The Bobcat is much more comfortable and suited to the paddock terrain of our 3 acre property, whereas the Walker bounced along showing up every bump especially at speed. The large wheels of the Bobcat with quite a smooth tyre tread tend to spin and skid on soft ground which makes manoeuvreability around low hanging trees not as easy as the Walker, but as the two mowers are quite different to drive, I guess I'll become more skilled as time goes on. For large paddock mowing, the Bobcat wins hands down and gets my vote for good value for money when comparing the cost of competing ride-on mowers. Overall, I am very pleased with my new purchase.

Thanks Tony! Let us know if the tyres/traction becomes an issue for you and we can look at other tyre tread options.
