    Have studied the Scag Turf Tiger & Exmark Lazer, but need to know more about Textron Bob-Cat, & the Grasshopper Midmount. Textron has a real lame website, and I can't find a dealer in the Topeka-KC area. I went to a Grasshopper dealer, but he hasn't seen a mid-mount yet, and didn't have any literature on it either. Does anyone have any experience with the Grasshopper or Bob-Cat? Any ballpark ideas on pricing? I'm looking for about 60" & 23-25 HP

    do a search on &quot;best mower&quot; topics in the past; there have been alot of posts on the bobcat (myself included) in the past 7 months. Also try &quot;favorite mower&quot;.<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>

    Grasshopper makes an extremely well engineered mid-mount. As a matter of fact they're one of a few that offers them in gasoline powered or diesel powered models. Gas models are M220 (20hp Kohler) and M225 (25hp Kohler). The diesel model that I've seen is the M321D (21hp Kubota diesel). I still prefer the front mount mower but if the mid-mount is what you're looking for, give a good look at the Grasshopper &quot;M&quot; Series.<p>----------<br>Doc Shank<br>

    I saw a new GH midmount w/ a 60 in&quot; deck for $7000. Why do you mot want an Exmark. They have been making midmounts for years.<p>Rick Wallace<br>LawnWorks

    I haven't ruled out Exmark. It's between the Scag Turf Tiger & Exmark at this point. I just found out about the Grasshopper mid-mount, and want to look at it first. I can't find a Bob-Cat dealer in my area, so will forget about it. I still like the Scag's bigger oil res. shaft drive & single fuel tank. I'm buy for my own residential use on about 3-1/3 acres, price isn't as important as having the best I can find.
