I have been needing a 36" w/b for a while now...seing that I have 48",52",61" its time for small one for gated areas..I will be using it daily. The guy has said that he wants 700 bucks for a 94 bobcat 36" gear drive w/b Do you guys think its worth the money it sounds good to me and its within my budget for a used mower...(500-1000) I havent found out the exact amount of hours but it seems to be a moderate amount I know these types of machines have a end life of around 3,500 including a rebuild somewere around there. He said the carb has been replaced does that mean that it has had signs of alot of bad fuel, abuse ? or is that something that just goes bad after a while ? I have never had carb problems of 4-stroke equipment. Any help and PROS or CONS about this year model...if anyone owns this perticular year model please let me know how you feel about it. I havent seen this mower yet.
