    I have place that is very wet and the other side is on a hill. I have a Bobcat procat 61 that I mow with now and was wondering if a walk behind would fit the bill. The turf is not standing in water is just too soft for the procat. I am looking at a bobcat 48" walk behind. What do you think??

    If its to wet for the rider a WB wont be much better off IMO, maybe different tires on a WB ?. I buried a 44" toro WB once getting greedy in a soggy area. Maybe let the air out of the tires a lil. Good luck in the mud!

    WB have their place and you will find good use for it no question. I was out on my Ferris this morning for about an hour working some hills and ducking some low branches that I could not do with a Z.

    Right now I am using a Honda self propelled mower but it is taking too long with only a 21" cut.
