May 04, 2006

Charlotte, NC - May 4, 2006 - The all-new BOB-CAT® FastCat® zero-turn riding mower by Jacobsen, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, offers more power in a compact size without compromising quality or operator comfort. With features fitting of a full-size zero-turning commercial mower, the FastCat comes with a full two-year commercial warranty, high-back deluxe seat, and built-in cup holders and storage area. It reaches speeds up to 8 miles per hour.

"BOB-CAT designed a compact zero-turn mower and didn't compromise. We made the FastCat comfortable so it drives and feels like our full-size mower," explains Tony Weber, BOB-CAT product manager.

"It lets you mow where the big boys cannot, by easily moving through narrow gates and other hard-to-reach areas," adds Weber.

The new FastCat is available in four different deck sizes with the following engine make and models:

  • 36-inch deck available with the Briggs & Stratton® Intek 21 HP or the Kawasaki® KAI V-twin 17 HP.

  • 42-inch and 48-inch decks with the Kawasaki KAI V-twin 19 HP.

  • 52-inch deck with the Kawasaki FH601V w/Heavy Duty Filter 19 HP.

"The FastCat offers more features than other compact commercial zero-turn mowers in its class and was designed with an emphasis on comfort," adds Weber. "It's a tough little machine with big mower features."
