I've got a 09 with the Generac 33 hp. Did you get the brand new model that looks a bit differently?

Yep its the new 11' style mower, has the different tanks, and seat style, they have changed a lot as far as positioning and weight distribution. the hydraulic tanks is larger, and lower, repositioned the filter to the front. if you go on www.bobcatturf.com they have everything on there.

Currently I'll have these mowers:
2000ish Bob-Cat 61" ZTR 23hp Kawi (FOR SALE)

2007ish Bob-Cat 54" Walkbehind 17hp Kawi Floating deck

2009 Bob-Cat 61" ZTR Predator Pro 26hp Liquid Cooled

2011 Bob-Cat 61" ZTR Predator Pro 37hp Kawi

Thats a lot of HP for a 60 inch deck, how is it going to be on fuel ? Did they beef up the belts driving the deck when uping the HP from say 23 to 33 (or 37) ? I know we had a Lesco 72 inch Z-2 with a 33 hp enginge, we broke a couple deck drive belts because they had not upgraded the deck belt.

They changed the belting, reduced from 2 belts down to 1 belt for the pto and drive spindles.....The 37 has EFI so that should help on cunsumption, but Im not concerned with the fuel efficiency. I want to have at least one mower that had the larger engine
