    I run BobCats and love them. My next mower will be a Bobcat when I where the ones I have out. That wont be happening anytime soon. There a top quality commercial machine that cuts great, leaves a great stripe.

    Bobcats are a well built machine. There are a lot of good design features w/ self tensioning pulleys, etc. Very easy adjustments and built like tanks. Easy on the operator too.

    I'd recommend a bobcat to anyone. Their walkbehinds are great, great machines.

    They are far superior mowers.

    Sorry, just had to do it for MKWL.

    Seriously, there is nothing wrong with them. I would demo several mowers before buying anything.

    We run a ZT125 bobcat 48" deck with a 25HP Kohler. Great machine well built and leaves a very nice cut.

    They are getting better, the design, idler bushing was a flaw as well as the front casters (bearings) but now all different. I like the cut, have a 98 with 25kohler 2000 hrs and just rebuilt engine. Good machine, although i have never ran a Exmark.??

    I have a 2003 48" Bob-Cat belt drive WB, w/ 15 HP Kawi V-Twin engine and I love it! It is built like a tank and has a fantastic quality of cut and stripe! I would very highly recommend Bob-Cat mowers!
