I'm looking into buying a walk behind mower! The guy i work with only runs lesco's and they seem like very nice mowers! But my friend only runs bob cats and i really love the cut that they leave. Whats your opinions on what mowers are better? Thanks

i run Lesco's and IMO i think they stripe better than most mowers ive seen. and they cut really good too. id say go with whichever company has a dealer closer to you, and is easiest to work with for parts and service. I know Lesco sends all their work out, but usually to a repair shop close by. I can say ive never had any problems with my Lesco's and i will continue to purchase Lesco equip.

Bobcat all the way! The lesco center around me leaves a lot to be desired!

I just got a great deal on a Bobcat 48 belt with a Kawi 15 hp engine.....wery nice mower for the price. Only cut a couple places with it but I will keep you posted. I like both the Lesco and the Bobcat though.

i have a '97 belt drive 48" bob cat wb and it stripes really good IMO....i would post some pictures but i dont know how to resize them....anyone wanna help me out?

anyways, i have never used a lesco but a couple of LCO's around here use them and i have herd alot of good things about them. so it really comes down to which dealer is closer.

No stripe kit. I mulch pretty much all of my accounts except the ones with pools. The last pic is my backyard in which I bag. You cannot no beat Lesco's prices either. Im glad to help, if you need any more stripe pics or anything else feel free to ask.
