The ultimate entry commercial zero turn mower - offering a tough fabricated deck and chassis, ZT-3100 commercial / serviceable transaxles, commercial FT Kawasaki engine, a comfortable ride and a beautiful cut. Deck options: 48", 52" or 61".


The Bobcat ZT3000 model has three deck size options - 48", 52" and 61". It is the ultimate entry commercial zero turn mower, offering a rugged design, commercial grade components and a comfortable ride, making it ideal for larger Kiwi lawns or commercial mowing rounds. It has serviceable transaxles, a tough, welded frame and a great warranty, along with a comfortable high-back EVC suspension seat with padded armrests for a smooth ride.

This 2021 model offers an all-new AirFX deck design which gives superior grass cutting and discharge, even in the most challenging of NZ conditions.

Key Benefits:

  • 1-Piece, welded tube steel frame - NOT bolted/riveted as on other brands.
  • Strongest deck in class - 10 gauge, fully fabricated, welded deck with 7 gauge spindle skirts and c-style anti-scalp brackets.
  • Chain Hung Deck - Seen typically only on professional mowers
  • Serviceable fully commercial Hydrogear ZT-3100 transaxles - smooth ride, fast cut and more durability
  • Durable Rotational moulded tank - much stronger than underseat tank. Complete with fuel gauge.
  • Large 22" Drive tyres for a smooth ride and more speed
  • Super Comfortable EVC Suspension seat with padded armrests
  • Optional Accessories 5bu side bag catcher, mulch kits, lights, tow kit

Powerful & Durable

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.

Heavy Duty Engine with Better Air Filtration

The Bobcat ZT3000 is powered by the super reliable Kawasaki® FT series engine. This latest model engine is designed to make light work of the heaviest loads and include patented Vortical Air Filtration technology.

Comfort & Control

Designed with your comfort in mind, the Bobcat ZT3000 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.

Reduced Maintenance & Easy Servicing

The ZT3000'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 ZT3000 has a Bobcat 3 Year / 1000hr Bumper to Bumper 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.
