No the only issue I have with the 54" is there is not many after market options yet. The 48" is pretty universal blade so I can put g6's on it..

Time to silence the Bad Boy haters

I like you own an xp. I went back two months after purchasing the xp and bought the 54" Stander with the Kawasaki engine. I have been running a Great Dane Stander for years. I love the Bad Boy Stander. I can't believe how well it sticks to a bank. It's the 23" tires I'm sure. I too have a good Bad Boy dealer near me. It's not the closest one to me but he's only 45 minutes. Warranty work is done in a day or I get a loaner. Your question was how it did walking behind. I have never had a reason to walk behind mine so I tried after reading your post. It does poorly but I can't find a reason to do it. It sticks to banks incredibly well compared to previous standers I've owned. I don't have the wheelie issues people speak of and I'm sure I'm a biscuit short of 300 lbs. My stander is only used on 22% of my lawns. The xp does the rest, so I only have about 40 hours on it currently. I have posted some reviews on here about it. I could have bought any mower I wanted. It was a great year. I went with BadBoy because the service I get from my local dealer.

Its good to hear from someone who has used the machine , yes I like the xp the ride is just so much better than what I have had on other mowers and for the price I definatly was impressed. I have a couple lawns that are very steep , I was hoping to be able to just sell my walk behind and use the stander , but I guess I will get it in the spring and see how it does before I do that , that was why I was asking about walking behind it.

I keep my walk behind. It's a 36" Scag. Its way old. I keep it for the steepest stuff and I keep it for fence gates. If you think the xp rides good, your love the stander. I couldn't believe the ride difference from my old Great Dane to this one.
