Introducing the NEW BOB-CAT 12 Bushel “BOSS-Vac™ Pro” Collection Systems…

The NEW and REDESIGNED BOB-CAT 12 Bushel “BOSS-Vac™ Pro” for the ProCat and
Predator-Pro mowers was developed and designed with the BOB-CAT quality and style in mind. Available in two models, 
either a Dump From Seat (DFS) or a 3-Bag model. The new lines of collection systems provide improvements
in performance, durability and usage.

Ease of Use –
The new “BOSS-Vac™ Pro” has a new front counter weight system which utilizes suitcase weights. This design puts
the weight where it is most effective without blocking your sight line to the front of the deck. This new design also allows for the weights to easily be removed without the use of tools. 

Performance –
The new BOB-CAT 12 Bushel “BOSS-Vac™ Pro” has a large 15.31” diameter blower fan with 6” wide blades to move some serious debris quickly. This along with the oversized air vent hood allows high volume of air and debris to enter the collection system while providing plenty of area to exhaust the air. 

Durability –
The new “BOSS-Vac™ Pro” collection system is designed like the BOB-CAT mowers: strong, tough and easy to use. The mounting hitch easily attaches to the rear bumper without the need to drill any holes. The blower assembly has a large steel fan that can take the abuse of debris pick-up. This is all backed by a 2-year limited warranty.
