Direct Grass Away From Objects and People

Bobcat mowers provide innovative cutting decks to give you a professional finished edge.  While operating the mower you will want to blow grass and debris away from trees, gardens, sidewalks, roads, windows and any bystanders for a safe and successful mow.  

Shut off the Discharge

Bobcat offers an exclusive lineup of mower add-ons and accessories for the best alternate mowing practices, when shutting off the discharge. Try a mulching kit or eco-plate kit and mulch away clippings and debris.    

To ensure blade sharpness, integrity and longevity. Always check for rocks, irrigation heads (depending upon the height of the cut) and other lawn and turf hazards before mowing.
