I agree. I demoed a 36" Exmark stander and the price was a little under 6k.

I think the last i saw the 36 Bob-cat hydro with z controls here was running about $4500, but that also was about a year ago..

But aren't the Bob-Cats fixed deck only? I change cutting height pretty often and like a floating deck for the easy height adjust. And they max out at 54 inches so if you wanted a 60 you're out of luck.

What would be another option? Scag doesn't make a floating deck anymore do they? I guess Ferris...
