    Hello all.

    Just joined the other day in hopes of gleaning information to help me make a decision with regards to a ZTR. To start, I'm not a commercial mower. I mow 3-4 acres at our home. The terrain is slightly rolling hills and flat ground. Grass is mainly fescue.

    I have to make a decision quickly and was hoping someone could steer me in the right direction. I've search the site and haven't found this particualar discussion/thread, so I apologize if this has been discussed (but I can't find it).

    I'm looking at buying either a DC LT2300-50D (DC 23 Hp Kohler w/50" deck) or the Crapsman (Bobcat Fast Cat 26 HP B&S w/52" deck).

    For me, quality/price is a factor because my budget won't permit me to go above the DC Silver Eagle range. I can get the DC for $5700 or the Crapsman (Bobcat) for $5000.

    In your opinion, which one should I go for? If I can shave off $700 and have a good mower that's the route I'd prefer, just not sure how the Crapsman (Bob Cat) stacks up against the DC Silver Eagle.


    Thanks in advance
