Bobcat Company has expanded its lineup of zero-turn mowers with the launch of one of its latest products, the ZT5000. The high-performing, turf-taming machine is built to tackle challenging mowing tasks with precision, ease, and the perfect cut.

“Everything about the Bobcat ZT5000 is designed to cover more turf area at productive speeds while leaving behind a high-quality cut,” Bobcat Senior Product Manager Ron Scheffler said. “Features throughout the ZT5000 support increased mowing productivity, including the dual fuel tanks, tool-free deck access for quick-and-easy cleaning, and the comfortable operator’s station with a high-back suspension seat and ergonomic controls.”  

Features That Boost Mowing Performance

The ZT5000 features a 23.5-hp Kawasaki engine for reliable starts, smooth power output and ground speeds up to 11 mph. The Hydro-Gear ZT-3800 hydrostatic transaxles deliver smooth and steady power for precise operator control and productive mowing performance.   

The ZT5000 is equipped with an AirFX cutting system with a deep-deck design and air-gap baffles that increases vacuum, lifting grass to the blade for a professional finish.

Its tough construction, including steel-fabricated spindles, stands up to challenging workloads. The ZT5000 is available with two cutting deck sizes: a 52-in. or 61-in. deck.  

Other key features of the ZT5000 include:  

  • Large, 24-i drive tires for a smooth ride, ample ground clearance and minimal ground disturbance.   
  • Heavy-duty, tubed-steel frame for increased durability.
  • Conveniently located tie-down points for simple trailering and transportation.
  • Dual fuel tanks provide 7.8 gallons of total capacity for fewer stops and more mowing time.  
  • Ergonomic controls for greater operator comfort and reduced fatigue.  
  • Tool-free oil drain for quick and easy oil changes.   
  • Large variety of optional features including a grass-collection system, laser-edge blades, grass-striping kit, mulching kit, and light kit.

The ZT5000 is the latest model among a lineup of Bobcat zero-turn mowers. The lineup also includes the ZT2000, ZT3000, ZT3500, ZT5000, ZT6000, ZT6100 and ZT7000.

Bobcat also offers stand-on mowers and walk-behind mowers. Bobcat has also introduced the ZT6000e electric zero-turn mower and the ZT6100 autonomous mower.  

The Bobcat ZT5000 will be available to fleet customers in North America in early 2024.
