Ok so that wasnt much of a post above....not sure why it submitted??? Anyway I am solo and have been running a Exmark Lazer Z HP 48 inch only. But today I found a deal too good to pass up. I bought a 98 Bobcat 48 inch hydro walkbehind, looks like new and a 98 walker 48 inch GHS with only 674 hours. I know some of your opinions are not good of the walker but I like them and they are very popualr around here. I feel like I have a mower for most every application, except for large area mowing. I bought these mowers from the original owner. They were not used comercially and were serviced by the shop he bought them at. I got both mowers for $7000. SO you think I did ok?

We just got in from a long one today, but tommorrow should be smooth. I only have about 17 regulars right now with a few half steppers wanting me to let it grow a extra week or 2 to save money, you know the type. Until the schedule gets full I have to deal with that kinda stuff. Were growing a little everyday.

Ok guys I have a question about the new bobcat walkbehind. Of course the guy I got it from didnt have the owners manual. I want to lower the deck height. I see the spacers on the front is that all I have to do to change the height? The john deere walkbehind I used to have had four adjustments. Seems the deck could not cut level if its not straight? I could be wrong though. Thanks in advance for your answers.

i dont have a bobcat, but other mowers just have adjustments in the front also. I dont get it either, i just accept thats the way it is.

You can lower the back of the deck ,by undoing 4 bolts/nuts,its a pain in the a--,usually you set them once and change the deck height in the front 2 castors,if you want i can email or fax you the page on the suggested heights

Charlies- I go to church with this man and have known him for 10 years. This man is very wealthy and I can asure you he did not get that way mowing yards. He had the walker and bobcat walkbehind he was selling. He still has a Kubota 72", a new holland tractor, a 115 Enclosed cab bobcat, a cat track hoe and I dont know what else. He owns about 70 acres around his home plus an office complex. he uses his equipment there and for his own relaxation. I hope one day I can afford to do what I want and have the toys I want to play with.

Dave- I would appreciate the directions page. I adjusted it tonight on the front only and it seems to cut fine. But I would like to make sure I did it right. Thanks. [email protected]
