With 48", 52" or 61" deck options, the Bobcat ZT3500 mower offers the full suite of professional benefits for both large rural properties or serious mowing professionals, at a great price. With dual fuel tanks, suspension seat, roll frame, large 23" drive tyres and professional engine + transaxles, this mower packs enormous value for money.


The Bobcat ZT3500 is a professional grade mower with more comfort, durability and performance than the ZT3000. Built for the lawn care contractor or the lifestyle block owner who wants to mow like one. Ideal for New Zealand conditions with added safety and performance, and a unique raised lip AirFX deck design.


  • Fully adjustable suspension seat - like a tractor (or a bus!).
  • Chain hung deck with additional reinforcing - enables the deck to float better over undulating terrain
  • ROPs (rollover protection) and seatbelt for additional safety on slopes - recommended for mowing contractors
  • Dual fuel tanks - keep mowing all day long without regular refuelling stops. Dual fuel tanks have a combined capacity of 36 litres.
  • Faster ground speeds - up to 16km/h


The Bobcat ZT3500 comes standard with tough, commercial grade serviceable ZT-3400 transaxles, powerful, smooth-running FX651, 691V or 730V Kawasaki engines and a productive top mowing speed of 16km/h. A quick lift foot pedal lets you lift the deck conveniently right from the seat for easy transport over obstacles. It has a one piece, welded steel frame – unlike the bolted or riveted c-section frame many other zero turns have.


Adjustable, oversized controls with a dampening feature reduce hand and arm fatigue and provide steady control even on bumpy ground. 23-inch drive wheels smooth the ride and provide sure-footed traction. A premium, fully adjustable high back suspension seat is standard for all-day mowing comfort. Simply dial in your weight and the seat sets at a neutral range to keep you floating over bumpy ground. No more sore backs!


The ZT3500 features Bobcat's patented TufDeck Pro professional mowing deck, and features an oversized polymer discharge chute for efficient dispersal of clippings. The patented Double-Wave Baffle System stands grass up with maximum vacuum and lift and is ideal on New Zealand lawns which are often wet and cut low. Fast blade tip speeds over 18,000 fpm slice lifted grass cleanly for a smooth, even finish.

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.


The ZT-3400 drive system has fewer potential leak points for reliability. The open frame design and flip up floor plate makes access to key components easy. A flexible oil drain hose and easy to reach filters and dipstick makes oil changes simple.


When you buy a Bobcat® ZT3500 zero-turn mower, we back that investment with an industry-leading warranty that gives you complete bumper-to-bumper coverage for 3 Years / 1000 hours.
