BOB-CAT recently announced it has reached its goal of 2011 EPA exhaust emission engine compliance throughout its mower line. BOB-CAT’s line of commercial and residential walk-behind and zero-turn riding mowers, through advanced engine technology that includes new Kawasaki FX and FS Series engines as well as units that feature digital fuel injection and propane-power offerings, are now 2011 exhaust emission compliant.
“We had the option, like many mower OEM’s, to tier-in 2011 exhaust emission-compliant engines over the next year, but we felt strongly that should quality 2011 exhaust emission-compliant engine technologies become available to us in 2009 that we could reach our goal of being 2011 exhaust emission compliant by the end of the year,” said Tony Weber, BOB-CAT product manager. “Proudly, we reached our goal in December.”
The design of the new Kawasaki FX and FS Series engines also offer enhanced fuel economy (through the use of Hemispherical Combustion Chambers and V-Valve technology), better cooling, lower engine noise, and more horsepower over their FH and KAI predecessors. BOB-CAT will also introduce two new eco-smart units this season.
