12 Hp Bobcat?

Has anyone seen or heard of a 12hp Bobcat color green? I was at a lawn mower shop tonight. One of the workers claims he has one. I have never see or heard of this myself. Hes going to bring it to the shop. He might be selling it as well.

"Roto-Hoe" did some sort of co-promotion whereby Bearcat produced the machines in the Roto-Hoe dark green company color. This was after Crary (Bearcat) had bought out the Bobcat snowblower line.

When Ransomes of England bought out the Bobcat lawnmower line, the mowers were all turned to Ramsomes dark green.

After taking a year or two off, the guy who sold the mower line to Ransomes then started Scag. That's why Scag mowers were painted Bobcat orange.....
