No its a realllyyyyy old bobcat. I paid $400 for it and he even threw in another mower for free! This mowers runs good and i did maintenance on it yesterday and made some adjustments so it drives straight. Soon i will paint it but not sure of what color any ideas???

that has a small engine only a 11 hp yikes!! You think thats bad for a 36"? I mostly see at least 15 hp but its an older model so you know. But i got a free scag plow from another guy with a good Briggs for free so I have another engine as a back up.
