Tell me everything you know about these.... I think the model is a z325 I'm looking at.........
I forgot to mention it has an electric deck
This tells me that I don't want it, because if nobody has heard of them, it makes me nervous.......
Be afraid, be very afraid.
I have a Ransomes Bobcat, Steiner sells the exact same thing but called Steiner and is red.
Yup, sounds like crap to me.
A real fly by night company.
I have a 430max and used to think it was the finest thing since sliced bread. Wasnt wortha hoot for mowing but all the attachments sure made it handy for landscapeing. Then I bought a Ventrac and found out the Steiner wasnt even in the same league. All the Steiner attachments fit the Ventrac so I hardly ever use the Steiner anymore.
Steiner isn't the same as Bob-Cat!!!!!!
However, it is mfg by Jacobsen.
I love my Bob-Cat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I beg to differ buddy, the parts are completely interchangable on the Bobcat I have and the new Steiner. I buy my blades and belts from the Steiner dealer using cross reference numbers.
I also have a Ransomes 4x4 that is exactly the same as the Steiner 4x4 425max again one is red and the other is green.
Which model of Ventrac, and which engine did you get ?
Did you check out the Steiner Utilimax, with the 34hp Daihatsu diesel ? It is a terrific machine for a landscaper, with its ability to haul 1400 lbs in the hydraulic dump bed, and still use the Steiner or Ventrac attachments.
