    The part I know. Bunton use to a good mower in this area. Most companies used them. Part I am unsure about. Bunotn was bought out a few years ago by bobcat I believe. Since then the mower quailty cause gone downhill. Making cheaper mowers...I.E.. stamped decks.

    Bunton and Bobcat are both owned by textron and have been for almost 30 years. What textron has bought out is steiner and a few others. This is the same company that makes much of the golf course equipment in jacobsen and ransomes. I have a bobcat zt200 and three bobcat walk behinds and a jacobsen turfcat and I wouldn't run anyting but a textron. Great equipment, and with a diesel it will go forever.

    Thats is nonsense. Every bobcat/bunton deck is welded, not stamped

    I worked at a mower shop last year and delivered one of those big Buntons to a residential customer out in the country. It's an incredibly big mower. You better have a wide trailer and a stout truck to pull it. I recommend an equipment type trailer. It's a very good mower and has more bells and whistles than you can imagine. It has electric deck lift because it's very heavy. This homeowner wasted a 48 rider doing his yard but he over bought with this thing. Stamped deck? I wish people who don't know would just not post. No offense, but accurate info is more important than posting numbers.

    a big company out my way probably has about 8-10 of the big desil buntons...they allways at least have one up at the mower shop at a time...and this company does alot of in house repairs they ussually just sent out the big stuff....i would go Dixie Chopper, they are the most reliable peices of equipment you could ever buy.

    you just confused the heck out of me...i dont think anyone what posting negatively...you just made an honest mistake and someone corected you...no harm done


    If anything you were in the wrong for trying to bash a product you didnt even know that well...im not a fan of textron either but i do think they make a good product and have for a long time...I

    If your going to bash something at least get the facts straight.
