    guys, hes talking about the bobcat classic (fixed deck gear drive) and the similar lesco. The size is either a 36 or 48.

    That's my opinion too. Also look at parts availability and cost too.

    I have never used a Lesco but did have a Bobcat 48" walk behind. The mower was a tank, wouldn't quit. Built to last.

    well if i get the BobCat what engine should i get the kohlor or the briggs & straton. i know the briggs is a good engine ive had good luck with those engines. but i dont know if the kohlor is better.
