The ultimate entry level zero turn mower - offering a tough fabricated deck and chassis, ZT-2800 serviceable transaxles, a comfortable ride and a beautiful cut. Deck size options: 42", 48" or 52".


The Bobcat ZT2000 model is available in 3 deck sizes - 42", 48" and 52". It is the ultimate home & lifestyle block zero turn mower - our most popular of the entire Bobcat Mower range. A rugged design, commercial grade components, and an adjustable deck lip, makes it the perfect fit for any NZ lawn. It has serviceable transaxles, a tough, welded frame and a great warranty, along with a comfortable high-back seat with armrests for a smooth ride.

We firmly believe that the Bobcat ZT2000 offers the best value for money of any zero turn mower in New Zealand! Here's why:

  • 1-Piece, welded tube steel frame - NOT bolted/riveted as on other brands.
  • Strongest deck in class - 7 or 10 gauge, fully fabricated, welded and reinforced steel deck
  • Chain Hung Deck - Seen typically only on professional mowers
  • Raised deck lip - perfect for mowing in damp/long Kiwi conditions.
  • Serviceable Hydrogear ZT-2800 transaxles, unlike EZT non serviceable units, as normally found on other brands.
  • Durable Rotational moulded tank/s - much stronger than underseat tank. Complete with fuel gauge and rachet cap.
  • Large 20" Drive tyres for a smooth ride.
  • Optional Accessories 5bu side bag catcher, mulch kits, lights, tow kit

Powerful & Durable

The Bobcat ZT2000 is powered by the super reliable Kawasaki® FR series engine and features 20" drive wheels to produce a ground speed of up to 11.2km/h. The frame is a single piece of welded tube steel - not c-shape steel riveted or bolted together as with other brands. The deck is also chain hung - a benefit normally only seen on full professional mowers, offering better flotation over undulating ground, and more durability.

Comfort & Control

Designed with your comfort in mind, the Bobcat ZT2000 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, and zero turn technology enables you to drastically reduce your mowing time. Cutting height is easily controlled through the Quick-Lift Foot pedal allowing for cutting ranges from 1.5 to 4.8" in quarter-inch increments.

Cut Quality

Just as at home in rough paddock grass as a fine turf lawn, the rugged fabricated deck design of the new Bobcat TuffDeck 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 nearly 19,000 fpm. The extra-wide polymer impact resistant discharge chute shrugs off dings while fanning clippings fine - eliminating clumps for a crisp clean cut in tough New Zealand mowing conditions.

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

Reduced Maintenance & Easy Servicing

The ZT2000'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 Bobcat zero turn mowers share a common design, parts are readily available and affordable too. You can even drop and change the oil yourself without any training, with an easy built in drain hose!

Excellent Warranty

The Bobcat ZT2000 has a Bobcat 3 Year / 500hr Commercial Warranty. Unlike most 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.

Who typically uses the ZT2000?

The Bobcat ZT2000 is our most popular Bobcat model in New Zealand by volume (specifically the 48"). It is an all round champion performer for most Kiwi lifestyle blocks - people typically mowing once or twice a week in the season, for an hour or so at a time. That said, the 3 Year / 500 Hour Bumper to Bumper warranty can be for either residential or commercial use.
