    How many of you guys have a Bobcat w/b xm series with the cogged belt to the wheels. I have one and love it. Do you know of any other ones that make mowers with cogged belts.:)

    :blob3: i have 9 bobcats from 36-61" and love every on of them, the larger units are hydro and are outstanding. as far as the cogged belt you have that choice when purchasing belts to get the cogged or "solid", i to like the cogged. t

    I have a 32" with single belt. It's cogged also. The tires aren't as fat as the larger mowers and the wheel pulleys get damaged because they're so close to the ground.

    Iv'e been running bobcats since 85, and have been very happy with the cut, reliability, and length of service I get out of one.
    Currently I only have the hydro 48 wb, and am toying with the idea of changing the contols and motor.
    I had the zt 200, 23kawi/61", but it didn't cut like the wb's so I sent it packing after 1050 hours.
    Doubles would have cured the problem, but I discovered that too late.
    Sure wish I kept it this spring when the grass was growing fast...

    Just got my August issue of L&L magazine, better late than never I guess. Anyway, according to them, Dane Scag started Bob-Cat manufacturing. True?
