It has been a great mower. Just trying to compare it to other mainstream commercial brands.
this is the way it works for me too!!!!

He just made a small mistake, he meant it was pitched with a 1/4" rise to the back.

Let me approach this a different way. I understand that you like your mower brand. I respect that. I still do not understand why you continue to dislike bb. Have you had a personal bad experience with them or are you just quoting other threads? Basically I just can't figure out why you dislike bb so much?

I bought a 60 inch pup 30 hp kohler new in 2008 put about 650 hours on it not 1 single problem and sold it for about half of what i paid for it . Bought a 2012 outlaw extreme 852 cc this spring because of the new armor tek deck love it no problems and cuts great . I mow some pretty rough properties also. In my opinion its a great mower !

No you may not specifically bag Bad Boy Mowers but this type of comment implies it.

You think Ferris is the best because that is what you own and paid alot more for a similar spec'd machine to the Bad Boy equivalent.
They all run the same components? don't they, so if you service them regularly they will last a long time. But most people do not so when it breaks they blame the brand.

Yes I do have a Bad Boy Lightning and my neighbour has a ferris. His has been broken numerous times. So is Ferris a piece of junk no! It just wasn't maintained properly.

My 2 cents worth, but I find the Bad Boy machines quite competent and at a better price point. If you want the best cut Keep your blades sharp and SLOW DOWN that is the main reason Walker mowers give a very good cut.

One thing to consider. I think too many people don't properly maintain their equipment and just expect it to run, run, run with very little effort put into proper care and maintenance. No, you shouldn't have to be constantly be working on the machine, but you do need to take care of your equipment (routine oil changes, air filter, cleaning, greasing, etc). "My spindle wore out...this thing sucks!" Well, did you grease your spindles? "Yeah.....Like 4 times last summer." Oh boy...and you expect any machine to last? (having a hypothetical conversation with myself) Having said that - if someone does routine maintenance and a machine still starts falling apart (parts failing unexpectedly and far too often), then I'd call it a lemon and look for another brand next time. I've had great luck with even consumer grade mowers. For example, a simple Craftsman lawn tractor that mowed my own bumpy/hill 2.5 to 3 acres for 8 years with no unusual failures. I think I replaced an electric clutch for the blade engagement, but that's about it. I'm just saying...if you take good care of your equipment, that goes a long way to making sure it lasts a long time. But certainly, there ARE inferior products out there. Just don't make it worse by not taking care of it (maintenance).

The way I came to that conclusion is when people ask how a deck is set up, they are speaking of pitch, if not they would say what is your cutting height, does that make better sense?
