Looking to buy a new mower and decide what to get so I thought I would see what the people in the field are using not what the dealer tells me. I would like to know where you mow and what, what the mower is and why you like it.
my vote goes to the bobcat 200. You get 61" cut & 25 hp Kohler for $7000. It's similar to eaxmark & scag style, but with engineering improv. over the exmark.<br>Check out other posts for other info.<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<p>

The bad part about the lazer is that the engine has a horiz. shaft, meaning the belts have to go from the engine, down towards the ground, & make a 90* turn to go under the mower & run all the deck pulleys & hydros. That means 2- 90* bends for every revolution of the belt, which means twice as much wear on the belts, & replacing them sooner. It also eats from your HP to do that extra work.<br>The bobcat has vertical shaft & all the pulleys are under the mower, running parallel with each other. More efficient design.<br>Also, lazers did not have oil coolers up until a year ago or so. That is why you were required/"recommended" to run synthetic oil.<br>Lazers have gotten better, But I still favor the bobcat or bunton. (my opinion from demo's).<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>
Smitty i just purchased a used dixie 60" 22hp kohler for $3700. It has an oil and hydro cooler plus a turbo and has two hydro filters and two oil filters for the engine. It is also has the more efficient vertical shaft and I think it is a good mahcine.
