I was sceptical as are most when faced with a more expensive recommendation, however after a seasons use I'm happy I went with the Bob-cat and appreciate the features that priced it higher than the comparable Hustler. I also appreciate the convenience of OMC collecting the mover for its service. Cheers Richard - West Melton

Great sturdy machine - Really enjoying it. The opportunity to add spray unit etc would be great.

Great Mower. Was in looking for a Countex mower and was sold the Bob - Cat, sales team brought it to my home and showed me how good it was.

The mower has greatly improved our lawn area.The Zero turn system is very good, good price and quality, If I could change one thing it would be a quieter muffler system, also would like an easier on / off mulching system.

Excellent mower and service. Better warranty than the competition...

I am very pleased with the new mower; it is an excellent machine for our requirements. The Bob-Cat is efficient, reliable, comfortable and fun! We have had an issue with the small left hand front wheel mounting but this has been satisfactorily resolved.

The general quality of the manufacturing and assembly appears more "engineered" to a higher standard than the Toro, more grease points and no cheap plastic components that I've seen so far. Having been to just about all the mower outlets in Christchurch I found the staff more helpful in answering my questions about the machines in the show room, and their recommendations for a replacement given my garden area and type. Appears to be better made, but time will tell, the 5 year warranty and servicing was a large part of my deciding.

Very good mower. Heavy duty deck, tough and strong. Mowed thick grass that I thought I would not get through. Good cut quality. If I could improve one thing it would be an easier to clean deck.

OMC gave very good service. Knowledgeable and attentive to my requirements
I went round stores looking closely at machines, and chose Bobcat due to strong construction, ease of replacing belts and free running casters.

Seemed to be the best value/quality for the price, salesman was also very helpfull

Love the mower. So easy to use. It seemed more sturdy than other brands, and I asked friends and they recommended it too

Really pleased with the service provided by the OMC team. Good knowing that there will be back up service/parts when and if needed from my local service agent. I chose Bobcat because of the quality of the build of the machine and finish of the product, if anything it could do with a better way of accessing the deck to wash underneath the blade area.

The Bobcat is much quicker on our lawns and is doing a great job. I’ll appreciate it even more once the growth rates pick up in the spring.

The lawns used to take up to 4.5 hours. I have now completed them in just over 2 hours. Massive difference, great machine. Just need to get used to the tight turning without digging up the lawn. LOL

I am extremely happy with my BOB-CAT CRZ 52” zero turn mower. This versatile beast not only makes short work of the less tamed areas of our property, it also produces an outstanding finish on our fine-grass lawn, with its catcher attachment. More enjoyable mowing, more free time! The pre-sale advice from the guys at OMC, delivery of the mower to down to the Mackenzie Country, and after-sales service has also been fantastic. Thanks guys.

We really love out new mower, it can even mow through our overgrown areas. It is making life a lot easier as it is so fast and our property looks much better than it has in a long time. Lovely to have a reliable strong mower!

I’m a busy man so when I moved out to a large rural section I needed a hardworking, durable mower that could get the job done fast. The BOB-CAT zero turn is perfect. Because I’m able to nip around tight curves and small spaces easily, what was taking me an hour and a half now only takes an easy 45 minutes to mow! It gives a really good cut too, the lawns look top notch. And it comes with a catcher, which I don’t use all the time, but it does comes in handy around the patio area to stop the clippings messing it up.

This was my first venture into the realms of ride on mowers. I had narrowed the field down to a zero turn but had decided a steering wheel option might be the easiest. Still not sure I searched the net and found the OMC Q&A site which I found very helpful.
Next minute I had a call from Gerry who was able to help me through my list of requirements. From then on it was all so easy with good old fashioned service coming to the fore.
Gerry could not have been more helpful. Arranged a demonstration on our property at 5.00pm, took all the time required to demonstrate the machine and then around 6.30 headed on back with a 4 hour drive to his base.
Consequently I purchased a 48” BOB-CAT and have been extremely happy with my decision. Gerry’s input didn’t finish with the pre-sale, his follow up service has gone well above and beyond the call.
Needless to say I couldn’t rate OMC and in particular Gerry any higher.
Looking for a mower, you have to give Gerry a call.

Great mower, trims much faster because of maneouvrability. Goes like the clappers, had races with my friends Hustler and the BOB-CAT left it for dead! A little hard to clean underneath though.

I was hesitant to move from the Hustler club as they are well known in NZ. After a lot of review of comments and videos from overseas I decided to take the punt. The Bobcat zero turn is a beast! Heaps of grunt and very well designed. Little features like the side shoot being able to be positioned upright without tying it back! Very well built and great features. Would recommend this to anyone, this is the best value mower in NZ.

Special Thanks to Manfred & the Team @ OMC power equipment we love the gift & really enjoying the new Bobcat Ride on mower.
Jim Smyth - 2018-05-28
Purchased the Bobcat two months ago, after frustrations with other ride on mowers. It took a little bit of getting used to the controls, but now it’s a dream to use and it’s taking half the time to mow my mini golf course! Found the seat very comfortable and control arms are well positioned. No more trouble with broken belts and clogged up mowers. It’s quite a simple task doing the oil change. I recommend it to anyone who has a lifestyle block or extra large lawn.

This mower is excellent, a lot more comfortable and faster than my old one. makes life a lot easier
