Yeah there have been plenty of problems with the BB mowers. They do have a lot of good ideas, but they have a long way to go. A little less money on pointless advertising and more on product improvement, customer service, and dealer support would be a good start.
I run the Turf Tigers with Michigan seats and 10 psi in the back tires. They ride fine to me. Also always have run the 35hp Vanguard which will run 12 mph. Plenty fast enough for mowing. I get rid of them around 2000 to 2500 hours, and can still get a decent price for them since they have the highest resale of all ZTR's. Posted via Mobile Device
Reading this post reminded me of a Scag I saw for sale (on eBay I think) that was regarding over 2K hrs as "low hours". Made me wonder how high the hours would have to be to be regarded as "average or high" hrs? :-)
