    Can anyone give me any info on these mowers? In particular the Fast Cat is a 19/48 and the Pro Cat is a 21/52. How do they cut? The Fast Cat is 5400 +tax and all that good stuff and the Pro Cat is almost 8k. Are these prices good? Is that enough power for these mowers? Any comments are much appreciated. Thanks.

    The Fast cat mower is a compact smaller unit. It has different hydro's then the pro cat. The pro cat is full size, heavy duty machine. Machine has an hydro oil cooler, and suspension seat standard.

    I have 2 Bobcat mowers and they are great machines! They cut great and stripe great! What dealer in NJ?

    Theres actually 4 bobcat dealers within 30 minutes of me. Is the Pro Cat worth the extra money?

    yes, imo, im not even sure the fast cat has a commerical warrentee, it is more of a homeowner unit. i run the zt225's and predator pro, the zt's are now the pro cat. great machines, cut great, short wheel base, tried and true machines. bobcat stands behind them too if you have any problems. im on my 3rd ztr, probably getting another next year.

    Is the 21 Kawi enough for the 52" Pro Cat? Also, any idea on pricing on that one? Thanks.

    I've got a 22 B&S on my bob-cat 52". I run the boss vac alot and when I do I wish I had an extra couple hp, but with out the boss vac I have plenty of power.

    Awesome, I dont plan on a Vac system, maybe a catcher but I doubt it. Mostly just side discharge. MowerBrad, can I asked roughly what you paid for yours? Thanks for all the help guys.

    Yes, the 21 Kaw works great on the 52" Pro Cat. We just purchased one this season and we love it. This is the 2nd Bobcat ztr that I now have and both cut great and stand the abuse. Price seems a little high. I payed 7k out the door for mine. You will not regret buying this machine.
