Bought a new ProCat 27 Kohler 61 or 60. Good mower for the money. Cut great and striped good. Good ride. But did not like wet or real thick grass. Clumped bad. I only gave around 6700 for it. Traded it back in for another Scag.

I have had ten of them over the last 14 years, all have been great mowers with zero problem with the exemption of wear items. Cut great, good on hills and uneven terrain never a problem in wet or long grass IMO, can't go wrong with a bobcat.

Looking at a ProCat demo from the local dealer. Worried that is has the Kohler motor? It has 50 hours on it. How much discount should I expect?

We have a 52in procat. It has been a good mower. DO NOT buy it with a briggs engine.

250 hrs on my 2012. Kohler 27, 61 cut. Procat model. Great mower. For me it's dixie, bobcat, or exmark. Nothing else would ever be considered. The cut is great. Discharge is great. Wet/long grass is no issue. Buying another in a cpl weeks. I like Kohler better than Kawi. Both r great but Kawi are an extra 750 and suck down petrol. I got 2kolhers with over 2500 hrs no issue. Just do the pm it's good.

I had to rent one for a day last year when my mower broke down. They're fairly dinky compared to the other brands. The cut was ok, though.

And you clearly have no idea what you're talking about. It was a pro-cat. The rental place I frequent weekly is now a Bobcat dealer. They're dinky. They're uncomfortable. I loathe them.
