The fast cat pro is a brand new model out for commercial use. The old fastcat was bobcats residential zero turn. Now they have the fastcat pro. The mower that you have Milo is not a fast cat then, you must have a procat, which if that is the machine you have they are very nice. Here is a fast cat pro:

http://www.bobcatturf.com/products/z...pro/index.html

ALL fastcats come with 20" tires and ZT2800 tranaxles and the largest engine available is a 23 hp.... so I am led to believe we are talking about different machines. All the information I gave here was out of my dealers mouth, and you made me question and go to the website, but he was right. He told me "You don't want that machine, it is a residential unit with a commercial warranty" and specs say he is right.

Sorry to hijack your thread exclusive contracting

And the 19hp may be a little weak on tall thick grass with a 52", I never tried it but it may bog down, just something to think about. Good Luck

even though that is a great number I would take my money and buy a used real commercial zero turn. I did exactly what you are doing, it was not enough machine and I lost $1200 when I sold it with 18 hours on it. If you have or think you are getting more than 25 weekly cuts you already need more machine.

The bobcat fastcat pro is one of the best built small mowers on the market. You should go to your dealer and check one out in person youll be inpressed.
