    I found one of these that is last years model for $2500, is this a deal or just a avg price? Sales guy said they are normally $3000 ish and this years model might be more. What do you think of this mower?

    Shawn; I just sent you a reply on your other thread. Why the w/b? Why not a ZTR or Stander? Why not a bigger deck? Bobcat is a good machine. I have had several of them, but with bigger decks. I think you should be looking at more BANG for your BUCK, as far as deck size goes...

    Gates.... I am looking at minimal stat up cost and thought a 32 would be the workhorse this year and the 21 would be great for the small front yards that they have out here. A 36 would not fit through most of the gates out here.

    The new 32" bobcats are around $3200. or so so that price is fairly good. Is it a demo unit or just a leftover? How many hours if any and what size engine? The 13.5 twin kawasaki delivers plenty of power for the mower to cut even the thickest grass. The bobcat machines are great IMO! You should be pleased with the machine!! Good Luck!! P.M. me if you have any specific questions. I work at a dealership part time so if you need any info, I should be able to get it!!!
