    Thats a very nice machine. But I would be leery. I once had a bobcat with the Peugeot engine in it. And let me tell you I spent thousands on repairs.
    Head gasket leaking, new heads... It was a nightmare. I bought it with about 250 hrs.
    Ask a bobcat dealer about that engine they'll tell you. My bobcat dealer told me that engine should of never been put in any machine.
    I guarantee you that the head will leak.Why do you think toro switched to kubota?
    Non the less its a nice machine. Good luck

    Why do some of you guys that have zero interest in buying come along and crap on a thread?

    Nobody is craping on any thread.Just simply warning the general public.
    These engines are costly to fix.
    I have 2 jacobson HR5111 in my fleet. They both have aprox 2500 hours on them and still running strong and all they need are filters and oil.
    Now, I will warn you that the decks are all run by hydrulics instead of belts.
    They are troublesome to digniose and the cost of pumps are costly.
    Another thing, THESE MACHINES ARE HIGH MAINTANCE..
