I've never owned a piece of equipment like this before and it was an impulsive purchase but one of the best I have ever made. My tractor came with a loader and I purchased an aftermarket Land Pride finish mower for mowing 4-5 acres of fairly hilly terrain. I also use the loader for clearing snow off my fairly long driveway.
I have no complaints about this machine and have had zero problems with it. I'd like to upgrade to a larger model within the next couple years and will definitely get another Bobcat.
