    Here's the scoop I have found several mowers and can't decided which one. I need opinions

    1. 48" bobcat with a 15 hp Kohler for $1750.00
    2. 36" exmark with a 16 hp vanguard for $1300.00
    3. 36" scag with a new 15 hp Kohler new belts and pulleys for $1700

    Which one would be a better deal for me?? I would really appreciate any feedback


    all are belt driven

    i like all three, there all good mowers but personally i wish i would have went with a 48" sometimes. the only thing would be is 15 hp enough power for you i have 13 hp on a 36" and its not enough

    Get a Bob-Cat. But spend more money and get the 15 hp Kawasaki engine on it insted of the Kohler. I have a 48" belt drive, w/15 hp Kawi engine and I love it!!!!!!!!!!

    The qualaty of cut and striping are superior to all other mowers!!
    They are built like a tank!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To answer the question,

    If gates are an issue, i would get the scag, because the idea of a brigs on the Exmark does not sit well with me.

    If not, get the bigger deck to be more efficient.
