It is the ultimate home & lifestyle block zero turn mower, with a rugged design, commercial grade components, and an adjustable deck lip that 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 BOB-CAT CRZ 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 - 10 gauge fabricated, welded and reinforced steel deck
  • Serviceable Hydrogear ZT-2800 transaxles, unlike EZT as found on other brands.
  • Adjustable Deck Lip - Unique to BOB-CAT, ideal for a better cut in New Zealand
  • Huge Fuel Capacity - 22L
  • Durable Rotational moulded tank/s - much stronger than underseat tank
  • Large 20" Drive tyres
  • Optional Accessories 5bu side bag catcher, mulch kits, lights, tow kit
Industry Leading Warranty

The BOB-CAT CRZ has a 5 Year / 500 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.

Powerful & Durable

The BOB-CAT® CRZ is powered by the super reliable Kawasaki® FR651 engine and features 20" drive wheels to produce a ground speed of up to 11.3km/h. Coupled with a huge 23L fuel capacity fuel tank, you have more than enough power and run time to tackle the largest properties.

Comfort & Control

Designed with your comfort in mind, the new BOB-CAT® CRZ™ 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 4.875 inches 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 BOB-CAT® TufDeck™ Professional-Grade Mower with patented Double-Wave Baffle System makes grass stand up and take what's coming to it from blades that spin up to 18,000 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 adjustable 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 CRZ’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 BOB-CAT® 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!

    I love the mower and the catcher is going great

    Niall S - 2018-05-30


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

    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.

    Thanks Jim, and also for the photos you sent of your lawn, which looks amazing!

    Special Thanks to Manfred & the Team @ OMC power equipment we love the gift & really enjoying the new Bobcat Ride on mower.

    Stephen Saxon - 2018-03-15


    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.

    Thanks for the feedback Stephen!

    Liz - 2018-03-13

    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.

    Hello Liz, thanks for review, yes you're right, almost all ride ons are a little difficult to clean underneath but we recommend driving up on some ramps or lifting the front up with a cheap endless chain hoist. Thanks!

    Greg Coffey - 2018-02-22


    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.

    Thanks for the review Greg! Glad you love your mower :)

    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!

    Thanks for the feedback Bianca!

    Gavin Cumberpatch - 2017-12-04


    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.

    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

    Hello - thanks for your feedback! You’ll improve with practice no doubt. Key thing is to a) keep both wheels moving when turning and b) don’t turn too fast – come to a brief stop before making a turn.

    Geoff Corkill - 2017-06-22

    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.

    Terry Richardson - 2017-06-02

    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.

    Anthony Henry - 2017-05-04

    Mangatangi, Auckland

    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.

    Hello Anthony, thanks for the feedback., we recommend looking at getting an endless chain hoist / block and tackle to lift the front up so you can clean underneath. This only costs about $60-80 and can be used for all sorts of lifting jobs around home!

    Waru Waitohi - 2017-04-30

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

    Malcolm Fisher - 2017-04-04

    Te Kauwhata

    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.

    Hello Malcolm - thanks for your feedback - we would recommend using an endless chain / block & tackle to lift the front of the deck up, you can hang it from a beam in your garage or shed or even from a tree - this should make it easier to get underneath and these only cost about $60-$80.

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

    Nigel Riches - 2017-01-31


    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.

    Edward Aitken - 2016-12-21

    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.

    Lyndsay & Trevor Courtney - 2016-11-30


    Absolutely thrilled with our purchase of our made in the USA Bobcat Zero Turn Mower. It's a dream to use, and is a lifesaver on our lifestyle block. This very tough. powerful and extremely well built machine mows with ease approximately 1.5 pretty rough hectares and it completes a very professional job in less than half the time of our old ride mower.

    Dave Enright - 2016-11-22


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

    Jeremy Wang - 2016-10-06


    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.

    Doug Brush - 2016-10-06

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

    Richard Dryden - 2016-09-30

    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.

    Richard Briggs - 2016-09-29

    West Melton

    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

    Grant E - 03/05/2018 10:23am


    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.

    Thanks Grant - appreciate your feedback!
