09 Bradley 48" walk behind hydro, has 18 hp Honda GXV-610. Bought new in February '10. No hour meter but my log says 61 hrs. I must sale to buy a rider as I have very large properties now. Includes two-wheel sulky, steel bag, mulch kit. Mows great, I want 2,000 for all. Located in South Arkansas please P.M. me.

If there is interest let me know and I'll throw up some pictures. I would be willing to meet someone within reasonable distance. Also, I would be interested in trading the walk behind and cash for a commercial zero turn, but would rather sale.

I think this is it

Thanks, I was gonna do that this evening. The mower runs great, it stripes very well with just the deck. The 18 hp Honda will pull me around very easy. The thing I have been most impressed with is the cut quality. Very smooth cut, and the 18 hp Honda is stout enough that I never really have to double cut anything. Anyone in the area is welcome to come and mow my yard with it to try it out. The hydros are hydro-gear, and they never slip. The spindles, pumps, belts and all moving parts are industry standard parts. Mower now has 67 hrs. according to log. I still use this mower every day so it will accrue. I would put the Honda up against any Kawasaki or Kohler or anything else. I have used a 20hp Kohler before and the Honda 18 will do anything it will do and get better fuel economy while doing it. I have an 8 acre property that I do every two weeks with this mower and it eats it up. I clean the mower every two weeks, lubricate all linkages with silicone lubricant, and keep lucas synthetic grease in the bearings and all points. The belts stay in adjustment, so they are like brand new. I just want to sell to put the money down on a dixie chopper 2750 classic, as I can pay cash for it if I get a reasonable amount for the Bradley. I really like this mower, and I actually can't believe that more people don't use them. After I get the Chopper I will get a 36" bradley hydro for my small gates, then I'll be set. If this mower was a 36" I would not ever consider selling.

How are the pistol grip hydro controls on this ?? Are the pistol grip controls soft or hard ?? You said that you have only used it on your 8 acre property ... so ny the time you finish your property how are your forearms feeling ??

I've never noticed a problem. I've heard people talk about the stiff levers, but they feel comfortable for me.

I would consider selling without the bag and sulky. If I could get 1,750 without the bag and sulky I'd do it. I could probably sell the sulky and the bag on ebay since they will fit most walk-behinds.

Mower now has 71 hrs on it. I would deliver for free within 100 miles of South Central Arkansas. I would deliver within 200 miles for 50 cents a mile starting with the first mile past a hundred. So if you are 200 miles away I'll get it to you for 50 bucks. 2,000 for mower with steel bag and sulky. Bag is $250 bought new and the sulky $250 bought new. Hell, they are new I just bought the mower and all three months ago. 1,750 for just the mower and I'll sell the other stuff on Ebay. I've made over five hundred bucks in a day with this mower before so I figure it's a good price. Nothing wrong with mower, just need a rider because although I meant to keep the business part-time it has become full-time.

Well Binky, it looks like you didn't sell it on ebay ... in other words, your reserve on the machine was higher than the highest bid !!

I have an offer on the mower and I am accepting, should work out the details to deliver it tommorrow. I hate to see this baby go, very good mower and I am very impressed with the Bradley. I will be buying a 36" hydro from them before next season. hope the Dixie Chopper has as good a cut, because my customer's are giving me great feedback on the cut quality. They think the stripes are very cool.
