    exmark
    scag
    bobcat
    billy goat

    im leaning towards the scag. exmark is a bit to high for me..im looking for a fixed deck to.what would be my best bet??

    Weedman, in Houston I can get a 48" 15twin Kawi Bobcat belt drive for $2399. I've checked them out, they look like a good machine.. If I was in the market for a machine like you described, that would be an easy choice for me.

    Definitely get a Bob-Cat!!!!! I have a Bob-Cat 48", belt drive, w/ 15 hp Kawi engine and I love it!!!! It's cut and striping are better than all other brands!!!!! Here in NJ, I bought my Bob-Cat new 6 months ago at my dealer for $ 3,200.
