So I ended up buying the Bob Cat 36" Classic Pro!! Had to pull the trigger as the grass is high again. Thanks for your advice! Will keep you posted on how it cuts.

Good choice. That's a tried and true classic and a well built mower. More than capable for a homeowner. You will also be amazed at how much better a commerical walk behind cuts than a traditional homeowner lawn tractor. Pick up a sulky for it if you ever get tired of walking. You'll be able to mow even faster than you can walk.

Very Good Choice! Kind of neat how giving info and data can help someone make a decision.

Funny, I was riding the country highway on my way home today when out of the corner of my eye I saw a Bob Cat green sulky in the high grass off the shoulder of the road. I'm going to look for that tomorrow as I ride to town and back.

So I cut my lawn as soon as the lawn mower was dropped off. That thing is a beast!!! But wow does it cut fast and smooth too! I noticed one problem/glitch: It seems to pull to the right more than the left. I checked the belt tensioner and they are both set at the same tension. When turning to the left its a breeze, but when I turn to the right it pulls super hard and fast! Damn near start running. Is that normal? I only had it in 1 and seond gear but mostly first to get used to it.

I don't have one. But No! It's not supposed to do that. If it were me, I'd call the dealer up and have him adjust to tracking. I bet that Bob Cat is a beast!

How about some pictures?

So I downloaded the complete owner's manual and saw that I could try increasing the tire pressure on the side that "pulls" and decrease on the opposite side to help in tracking. Will give this a shot and see what happens. Seems logical, no?
