    I have been demoing mowers for the last 3 weeks. I believe there is a Bob-cat dealer here in Knoxville. Let me know how you like your new ZTR. I would like to consider Bob-cat if the cut qual. is good.

    I used a 61" 22hp kohler bobcat mower for another lco this summer and it was a good machine. Had 2200 hours on it too. However when I bought a ztr this fall I got a super z over the bobcat for several reason. 1st top speed on the one I used was only 7mph. The super z is 15mph. 2nd the deck hight has a foot lift on the hustler and is hand for the bobcat. I find I use this often when mowing or turning on uneven ground. 3rd and to which I can not testify but 2 other guys that used the same machine as I did said it could not hold a slope very well. Its still a good machine though in my eyes I just liked the hustler better.

    The Bobcats are good mowers. You really got a good deal on it. I talked to the Bobcat distributor for my area recently and he was very knowledgeable. Bobcat is a good brand of mowers and have a great cut quality.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal.

    My dealer had one that I considered a few months back. It did have the steel surcharge tacked onto the price and it was 8000.00 but with a 27hp.

    That will last you quite a long time! Keep the blades sharp and the zerks greased!

    Put my grass gobbler on today and cleaned up the yard. Cut was great and the seat is wonderful.

    I'm not a Bobcat fan, but that is a good price for that mower.
