Bobcat Company (“Bobcat”) has unveiled its all-new WB700 commercial walk-behind mower lineup. First displayed at the 2021 GIE+Expo show, the WB700 is an ultra-maneuverable, powerful solution equipped to tackle tough turf jobs. The WB700 comes in three width options (36″, 48″, 52″) to allow contractors added versatility in rounding out their grounds maintenance equipment lineup.
“Owners will be able to shred grass and tough turf with ease thanks to the ultra-powerful Kawasaki FS series engine, operator-friendly controls, and updated hydraulic transmissions,” said Ron Scheffler, senior product manager at Doosan Bobcat North America. “The durability and quality of Bobcat’s zero-turn lineup is infused throughout these new commercial walk-behind mowers, and contractors will be able to build a fully rounded-out fleet to tackle any turf job.”
The WB700 is uniquely designed with a commercial floating deck, which allows the operator to adjust the height without the need to unbolt any components and save significant time. With the ease of maintenance in mind, the WB700 comes equipped with a tool-free oil drain and deck access, as well as a handy external oil filter location and easy battery access. The 5-gallon fuel tank means many hours of mowing before a fuel-up is needed.
Thanks to easy-to-use ergonomic controls, the WB700 is built from the ground up to maximize operator comfort, day-in, and day-out. With a unique bullhorn design and reliable TufDeck cutting system, the mower allows grass to pop up quickly for an outstanding quality of cut, increasing efficiency with fewer passes.
In addition, the WB700 comes equipped with a hydraulic drive and innovative Hydro-Gear ZT-2800 hydrostatic transaxles, which deliver smoother, simpler operation with heavy-duty torque output and comfortable ground speeds up to 6.5 mph.
The WB700 has a 1.5 in. x 2.5 in., 11-gauge structural tube frame. It also features a 7-gauge engine mounting plate and a reinforced box section. The frame accepts a sulky to easily transform the WB700 into a stand-on mower for increased comfort. The 20-inch drive tires provide ample ground clearance to minimize ground disturbance and enable smooth, easy maneuverability on tough terrain.
