    I own 2 a rider and a hydro wb. I also owned another rider but that got sold 3 years ago. Great machine IMO, Nicely built and they stripe awsome. My Exmarks are right there with them but it some cases, I think the Bobcat cuts slightly better. In other cases, the Exmarks do better.

    What models are you looking at?

    I don't own one, so I can't say good or bad... but I ruled them out b/c their top speeds were too low...

    how wide of tires do you guys use on back of the Bobcats, do they hold a steep sideways grade pretty good?

    What bobcat are you talking about? The top speeds are too slow? I demoed a predator pro and that thing is fast!!

    Like I said, I don't have one. Met the Bobcat guys at a green show here and we went over the specs. That's all. Unimpressed by their limitations...

    Had a Bobcat in 86 . Sold it to buddy who is still using it today and it still runs great . Had about a 1/2 of soil dumped on it due to an engine fire and after all that still ran like a champ and didn't even tweak the deck . Has a Kawi engine on it .
