    Hey All
    Just wanted to show off my new mower. Its a bobcat fastcat pro. (still between home owner and commercial but) I mow part time and its good size and price for me. I have been using a scag walk behind, man i didn't know what I was missing! Also it has a 5 year 500 hour commercial warranty, or a 2 year 2000 hour warranty. I went with 5 year, i figured I might could get 3 or 4 years out of it.

    If you don't mind me asking. What are the specs, Engine, Deck size? And what did you pay with the bagger? I love my Bobcat walk behind but i really want to get a similar machine to yours as my full time machine.

    The specs are 52" deck 22hp kawasaki engine, I might be off a little but the bagger was about 1150 i think.

    sorry didn't read the post correclty bagger + mower (5400) = 7100 give or take out the door. I was about to buy a freedom z but it had a briggs and the bagging system sucked (even the dealer talked it down) the bobcat has a bagging system that runs a mulching blade off of the engine so much better suction. thats why i spent three hundred more on it. well that and it had the kawi.

    The peco bagger system is a great unit and is also half the price of the oem. boss vac bagger from bobcat.

    thats a nice mower, bobcats leave a great cut. I worked for a guy and we ran a 61" bobcat with over 4000hrs....just had a few engines.

    How many hours were on it when you bought it? I just priced one out and they wanted 7500 with 50 hours on it. Had 52" deck and 22hp kawi. Great mower! same setup I'm looking at purchasing here in a week or two.

    It only had .2 hrs on it. Are you sure you looked at the fastcat pro? I think they quoted me a procat with a 19 kawi for 7500 or so anyways good luck with it and thanks I'm enjoying it so far
