    LOVE my bob-cats, have 2 48s with 15 kawis, and a 36 with a 15. I SHOULD have gotten the 48s with 17 kawis though, wish i had. Im upgrading to exmarks for riders and stuff, but Bob-cats have always been among the best in my opinion. Their 36 is the best in the industry.

    I just got a used (1998) 48 inch 14 HP bobcat walkbehind. Runs great, looks like new but the cut is terrible. I have sharpened baldes, and tightened belts but it is still leaving a ragged looking cut. Also with deck about 1 1/2 inches off ground it is mowing at about 3 1/2 inches?? maybe there are supposed to be spacers on before the blades on the spindle shafts?
