I agree. I wish BOP was back in action. In many ways my Quick 36 is my most reliable mower. Only problems I've had in over 700 hrs of use is had to change spindle bearings and a broken deck belt. I don't ever even have to adjust the speed! The customer service was always so good with them also. The only thing is the deck will get exremely clogged on fertilized lines right now. I've learned to grin and bear it. THe deck on my scag gets clogged to. If BOP did come back somehow or was bought by someone, I wonder if they would follow suite with these other companies by making a wide area mower with a rear bagger? I bet they could make something that would blow the Toro/Exmark 30 out of the water. And I'd be first and line to purchase.
