    I own a campground with 130 acres. Most of the fields are cut with 6 foot mowers behind the tractors, but looking to buy a ZTR for the camping fields. They are not smooth manicured lawns to say the least and looking for something rugged. I'm currently comparing the Cub Cadet Z force and Bobcat Procat.

    Just looking for any opinions anyone has on these 2 units or any other suggestions I should be looking at

    If you repost in one of the mowing areas it would help. I personally run Toro and Exmark

    If you've got a 4 wheeler on your campsite, then I would just buy a pull type mower and pull it with the 4 wheeler.

    I have a turf tiger as well and it is built to last. But with 130 acres to cut you may want to look into a Lastec tow behind unit. I have experience with them and they cut a large area quick at a fraction of the cost of a large ztr. http://www.lastec.com/lastec/rearMount/rearMount.aspx
