36 Bobcat mower ?

I am in the market for a 36 and was going to look at this mower next weekend . Anything I should look out for ? What do you guys think ? This mower was used on a golf course for 2 years and then used as a back up 36 for 2 years.

The hydro is the one I am looking at and it is the one with the Kawi engine.

To me it should be a good by, just make sure hydros are strong and oil is clear. Also make sure the engind starts up and doesn't blow smoke, and deck bearings are good.

as long as everything operates as it should you can't go wrong for that price, i wish i was closer i'd pick up the gear drive 36 for some of my fenced in yards...maybe even look at that exmark.

One thing about buying from a golf course is that although im sure this mower had multiple operators, but most golf courses have mechanics on staff who will keep up on maintenance to a t

King,

I helped purchase a 36 belt for $1200 this spring. I'd grab the hydro if it's strong. You will appreciate the ability to back uphill if you need to. Nice find.
Buy it before someone else does.

Let us know.
Tim
