    I am looking to purchase a new mower for home use. I am going to need about a 36" deck commercial machine. I was directed at a 33" deck Billygoat. Does anyone have feedback, advice or experience with this machine? I was also looking at a 36" Bobcat which is pricier than the Billygoat but may be worth it? Any feedback would be great. Thanks.

    The billygoat is a piece of crap. For the homeowner, I'd buy a Lesco mower. Basically a Scag design, with a Kawasaki engine. And their prices are alot lower than the others, because they buy direct from the manufacturer. A 48" belt drive will run you roughly $2500 out the door. Good luck
