For $14000 you can buy a 5500 pound tractor. The price on some of these big name mowers is out of hand.
I've learned that a big part of the "Bad Boy haters" can only make very vague negative remarks. Never any specifics....because when you compare "apples to apples" there are no shortcomings in the way the commercial BB machines are designed, or the components used.
One say's "they're not as heavy as other mowers and that's bad"....while the next says "they're too big and too heavy, and that's bad"!! Obviously they can't be both, so you realize it's just a matter of (sometimes a very biased and uninformed) opinion.
I just smile and shake my head and go on to some credible, useful info from people that know what they're talking about.
