very nice. i have that 48"s great grandfather. i like it alot though. turfdude do you use striping rollers? i just called my guy for a striping roller for my 48 bobcat, and 32 exmark. he says they don't make them for either of those machines

no, we don't use striping rollers. I believe eXmark just has the rubber flap that hangs from the rear end of the deck

How come you went with the bobcats instead of all exmark? Did you get them cheaper?

Its because Exmarks cant hold up to a husky!!!! Meaning if you like a exmark, wait till you ride the husky. Its better!!!! understand? :eek:

The dealer felt that for the price, they would do me better than the eXmark. Mechanics said the same. They have some much easier adjustments than the eXmarks, self tensioning springs for blade engagement, blade to blade and transmission pulleys. They have a slightly deeper deck w/ more airflow above blades for bagging and/or discharging. They have a blade clutch as opposed to manual blade engagement. For the extra $125/machine, they offer a bit more. Also, quality of cut is a tad bit better over the eXmarks.

I know what you mean but what i am saying is that the eXmark in my mind is a better machine by far. But those bobcats are really sweet to, just picked up my 48 inch up not more than a week or two ago and cant wait to go out and mow.

Because Bob-Cat's are far superior machines to exmark!

Turfdude,

How much did you pay for those BobCats...... I am thinking about buying on and I also live in South Jersey and I want to know if my dealer is giving me a decent deal or not. How does it run? Do you like it?

I think I can answer your question. I live in North Jersey and I just bought a new Bob-Cat belt drive 48" w/ 15 hp Kawasaki V-Twin engine and I love it!!!!!!! I got my Bob-Cat for $3,300. The Kawasaki engine runs really smooth and is really powerful! It handles extremely well and the quality of cut and striping are absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!!!!! I also have a Grass Gobbler catcher for it, and it bags the clippings really well! Get a Bob-Cat, and you WILL NOT be dissappointed!

Cheese Dawg,

I bought a pair of them in the spring. They were around $2825 a piece and the umbo gobblers were another $160 a piece. I got back $100 per mower from Bobcat last month. I really like these machines (not that I use them much myself anymore).

You won't regret your choice. My guys all love them - they claim they're the easiest pistl grip they ever used.
