    Have these units got any better than the previous models a few years ago? I tried a model back in 2006/2007 (don't remember which year) and could not get the dang thing to bag well, it was brand new even. I know these things aren't built for speed, but no matter what I did, the blower would clog up with grass regularly.

    That looks odd painted red instead of the bobcat green.

    The red and black ones were sold as Jacobson mowers. Although, that one does have the bobcat decals on it. I would be interested to know when that mower was actually made. Possibly it was a Jacobson leftover rebranded as a bobcat. I'm pretty sure those mowers haven't been produced in a few years.

    I have an older one and I love it. Yeah if you let the hopper fill all the way to the top and keep running just for a min. it will stop the shoot up. So you got watch that and since I have been watching that mine has not got stopped up once. Also they have made some small changes but not many over the years.

    I know they have had Jacobson and Bob-Cat at the dealer here . I pretty sure it is not rebreanded because they are still being made. I think Bob-Cat makes both of them. They may have stop making Jacobson though. I have asked this question before to the dealer but I am going to ask again when I go back in there Friday. Then I will post on here and let yall know.

    No problem, The one good thing about the Bob-Cat it has like a "normal" zero turn controls or its one of the things I like about it. Yeah I was looking at the Stihl SG20. Do you have a backpack sprayer?
