    Default bobcat has a midmount mower

    As I understand it Kioti has dropped midmount mowers on the CK line. Well, I just saw a BobCat Kioti clone offering a midmount mower. It was in "Compact Equipment" magazine. For those who might want one, this might be a place to look.

    As I recall the Kioti midmount was way expensive and cost about as much as buying a quality bush hog and quality finish mower of equal size. I don't think Bobcat is likely to sell cheap either.

    IMO mid mount mowers are mostly useful on machines like the B series Kubotas which have been set up primarily as mowers. For a true CUT, I'd take the flexibility of three point rear mowers any day. If you don't like the long overhang, get a flail.

    Don't disagree. Just posted it because I had read some were wanting a MMM.

    I have an MMM on a b series kubota. If I did it over, I'd buy a rear finish instead. Pluses and minuses of mowing with the mmm and rfm cancel each other out to my mind (depending of course on your lawn) but the MMM is much more of a pain to deal with. And more expensive.

    Too many other random attachments to list (or to own, per my wife) and a really bad tool addiction. But at least I haven't bought a dump truck or bulldozer. Yet.
