    Are these mowers any good? I'll be looking at the Predator Pro 61 with the 33hp power mower and with the 31hp witch one would you guys want? Any way i go i'll be getting two new ztr mowers. Does bobcat stripe good? Do you guys have any pics of the stripes? Also how good do the striping kits help out?

    I've heard good things about the Bob Cat ztr's. I would go with the 31 hp because i've also heard many good things about them. Briggs is a larger company and they are great to deal with if you have a warranty issue.

    I have been running bunton ztr's for about three? years now. (almost the same as bobcat) very well built, stripe great with no kit, I can't help with your 31 or 33 hp question though. I only have experience with the 25hp kaw,26hp efi koh, and currently run two 28hp efi kohlers. I liked all of them but preferred the efi models.

    I know a guy that has a bob cat 61" and ferris 61" the ferris is newer and he use to use that however he's been using the bob cat more b/c he said he likes how it stripes. It has about 2,000 hours on it too so I guess they last a while.

    We have a Bob Cat Z-125, 48" deck with the Kohler 25 HP. Its a 2001 model and very little problems with it. It does leave a very nice looking stripe without striping kit. They are great mowers!
