I've got a good friend that sells bobcat, ferris, scag, walker and JD. I need to buy a mower from him if possible. Exmark is the highest on my list but he does not carry them. I am only part-time. He recommends that I buy a Bobcat 223. It has a 61' deck, 23 hp Kaw with the Donaldson air filter, air ride seat and oil cooler for $7700 plus tax. Seems like a good price and nice mower. I'll be putting an OCDC on it. The dealer service is really good. By the way, I'm dead set on buying a 60' deck ZTR. Please give your opinions I'm going to buy one soon.
