Thank you for the honest review. I demoed one today the outlaw xp. I paid down on it and it is on its way. This will be my first brand new mower in the history of the business. I am a nervous wreck. I'm forty years old and have never paid $8200 for anything in my life. I'm paying cash for this thing. This is a huge investment for me.

I think that's a great mower. Keep us updated. I am very interested in the czt elite. Compared to buying a used mower for 4-5k when I can buy one new for 6k.

So far I like the mower , the vanguard engine has power to spare , the suspension is great , after a few small problems it seems to be smooth sailing so I hope it continues. I will update if I have any other problems.

I do see a decent amount of them around, but I have never been a big fan of Bad Boy mowers.

Thanks again for the input.
I know this post is old but I have something to add. Supposedly the sensitivity of the steering controls of the Outlaw is adjustable. That is what the dealer told me anyways. If you can adjust it to make it less sensitive, it should work a little better for you.

Wanted to post an update on the mower , it has 120 hours and seems to be doing fine , the vanguard has good power and the suspension and grammer seat is a big improvement over my other mower with just a suspension seat. It has been to the shop twice for the electric lift , the lift and lift arms keep coming off , hopefully we have that fixed now , the deck belt has came off pulley once but is very easy to put back on and the tensioner is adjustable so that should fix the problem there , I still have a ratchet strap around the battery because I could not get the original battery holder bracket to stay on , but the ratchet strap around the battery solved that problem. Minor things but so far the mower has done well. I would not say the machine is without its flaws but it seems to be a solid machine at the price point , and the suspension is very nice , I have not used a ferris but I have used many other mowers and the ride is good , only time in 1000's of hours will truly tell all about the over all build and design of the machine but I will continue to update post if I have any comments or issues.
