Cleaning out the garage this past weekend and I was able to get a some of my mowers tucked away in the back of the garage.

Here are my 1973 and 1976 Bob-Cat Commercial push mowers. These mowers are very heavy duty. The 1973 has a very unusual grass catcher, which I have never seen on any old Bob-Cat push mower. It has a 4 hp Briggs. The 1976 has a 5 hp Briggs "tall block" .

Wow!!

Those are really really cool! I can't say that I've ever seen a Bob Cat lawnmower before. They both look like they are in well preserved shape. Yeah, I can definitely see how they are heavy duty machines. That's pretty awesome how you have two of them! How did you come across them?

Thanks for posting the video too! It's always a neat thing to hear what they sound like!

All the great photos are fun to look at! :)

The one with the catcher I found on ebay. The one without the catcher was given to me by one of my customers. I have my own landscaping business so I have a soft spot for these old commercial mowers. They even had model with a 2 cycle engine(not sure the make of the engine) which I would like to find and add to my collection.

Self propelled Bob-Cat

Those are beautiful rigs! I love the design of these and the build level - impressive gear.

This is a new project - it has a PTO output cast into the crankcase of the 4 hp Briggs Commercial motor. Everything is there and the engine turns over... gonna be a hoot to rebuild this little gem.

Anyone have Bob-Cat experience? I'll be needing all the help I can get!
