    I was at a show in Ottawa yesterday and was quoted a price on a Bob cat zt 223 ( kawa motor ). This machine will be for personal use only on my 2 properties.

    $9,999.00 plus taxes ( canadian funds ) or exchanged to U.S. dollars $6,583.00 plus taxes.

    I know nothing about this company, (bob cat) but supposedly it is a good make.

    What size mower deck is that and how many hp?

    Bobcat is a reputable company, but I am not very familiar with their mowers.

    Good price at US dollars.

    Probably bare bones unit that is air-cooled with no bells and whistles. If it's just for your 2 properties, it's probably good enough for you I would think.

    Actually it is air cooled, and the hydro pump has an oil cooler.

    It would be for personal use only. 1.5 acres and 5 acres. Maybe once a week if it rains alot.
