    I am looking at the cub cadet enforcer 48 and was impressed with the features for the money- what does bobcat put out in their line that would compete with the enforcer for price and quality? any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    how about simply it is a quality machine. not knowing much about the cub, my gut thoughts is that it is a homeowner machine. but if your looking at the bobcat leo, they may be on the same level. id image resale would be better on the bobcat

    I just recently bought a Kubota 26Hp diesel 326 60" cut. As far as bobcat , i didnt realize they built ZT'S ? I've always run exmarks, and to tell ya the truth id rather have this diesel kubota. For one reason : this diesel kubota only burns 1 gallon of fuel for every 3 gallons any other gas burner goes through. talkin bout savin on fuel :clapping:

    i dont care what they list it as,it is a homeowner mower in my book. i have two cub tank 60S and when you look at them beside an enforcer there is no comparison. save your self time and money,get the heavy models.you will pay a little more now but will save in the long run. as far as the bobcat leo i could not tell you,but i do like the predator pro series.heavy built and fast. willie

    I agree that if you can afford to, go with the Cub TANK series.
    If you are financing, it's an absolute no-brainer...

    Bob-Cat is also another solid choice... the ZT-200 series or Procat series or Predator Series.

    If not, I don't think the enforcer is a bad choice.
    The Fastcat should be around the same class machine from Bob-Cat.

    The Bobcat Leo is a POS! Its a medium duty home-owner machine like the Toro Timecutters. If you want a Bobcat in the "compact" size, get a fastcat!
