Any experience with Bobcat Zero Turn mowers?

Thinking of getting a ZTR mower, Bobcat service is good and in town, they have been good with house calls on other equipment.
They are new in the ZTR market. Anyone have one? Like it?
Pretty sure they owned Steiner tractors and sold Steiner Zero Turn mowers awhile back, My son has 2 with Kohler engines. Good mowers. Not sure how that translates into now, but zero turns are not a new thing to Bobcat.
I see the linkage now. Bobcat did buy Steiner, Ryan and BOB-CAT ZTR lawn mowers and their Wisconsin manufacturing plant, but not until late in 2019.
So there was a brand named BOB-CAT but until then not related to the construction equipment company. So I’d guess they are a derivative of the prior company’s products but Bobcat ZTR didn’t come out until 2020 or 2021.
My lawn car man uses one. Had problems with the spindles in which he said Bobcat had a recall on them..cannot grease them. He got that taken care of with replacements and had no problems since.
