    Is the Exmark any better of a machine than the Bobcat. If it is what makes it so? Would like to know the difference in how the 2 are made. Opinions on how they cut, durability, etc.

    Hard to believe no one has any views on this subject. Oh, well lets try this.
    If you had a choice between an Exmark Lazer HP 52" Trivantage Deck/20 HP Kohler and a Bobcat ZT219 52" Deck/19 HP Kawasaki which would you choose? Thanks

    I own an Exmark Lazer Z HP 52" and I would not trade it for a Bobcat. I looked at a Bobcat before I bought it and I would say that the Bobcat is not built as well in my opinion. I think they are built kind of cheap in my opinion compared to an Exmark, Toro, or Hustler.

    I would go with the Bobcat. The ZT200 series is very well made.

    If dealer service factors are the same for either that is...

    I have not used a bobcat, but I woulded trade my hp. 18 kohler with 48" deck. It cuts great and is verrrry reliable. 1100 hours with normal wear items needing replacement.

    Definitely the bobcat. I find Kawasaki's better then Kohlers and the Zt-200 series are great. Built like tanks, great stripers and lots of great features. IMO they are awesome.
