    I do not, but I have a buddy that loves his. He will not use anything else.

    If you do a search you will find the posts. I have not read anything bad here about them.

    That makes me very happy since I sell them :)

    use all bob cats here but all are about 5 years or older, anybody have new models of walkbehinds, if so have the controls changed any ? Do you still have to have extra long fingers, all day use hard on the hands. I would like to have ferris controls on a bob cat mower ....

    I only ask because nobody talks about them... We own a 52" floating deck w/a 17hp kawi and a 36" w/a 15hp kawi. Service was good when we purchased but is definitely lacking now. I certainly know what your saying about the controls bushog but performance wise they seem to be holding up pretty well (knock on wood) we bought them in 2002.

    We use Bobcat belt drive bobcat w/b's. Their hand controls are very easy on the hands. Very little pressure needed and both 48's & 36's are really easy to k-turn very smoothly and quickly.. no REAL need for hydros IMHO.
