However, I have been very very very interested in Bob Cat recently... I have not demoed one but I have seen their QOC and the work that they produce and I am impressed. Bob Cat's are definitely built strong, they stripe beautifully, and they are at a decent price point. I think the problem is that Scag is just so proven and has so many followers that it is difficult to find folks who are Bob Cat fanatics. With all that being said, I am a Walker man myself,, I bleed yellow and Walker is what I run for ride-ons. I run Scag for walk behinds. I am just an equipment junkie and that is why I have educated opinions on these brands... I say demo both and see for yourself which is the better fit for you...
don't believe I will have the option to demo either model, as there isnt a dealership within a few hours of me large enough to justify having demo models

With that being said, if you are looking for a much better ride, equal cut, better resale value, but will cost you considerably more money to purchase, then the Scag Cheetah is your machine.
see thats the thing, the BobCat is only $600 cheaper than the SCAG, $600 is negligible when you are talking a 10k mower granted the Scag comes with the 850FX kaw "standard" and the bobcat comes with the 921FX "standard", but the people I have talked with are telling me that the only difference they notice between the two motors is fuel consumption, the 921 isnt noticibly more powerful...
