I only have one badboy dealer somewhat close to me according to their website. But I've never actually seen a badboy mower there when I drove by so I'm not sure if they will even have what I'd like to demo. Chances are I will be switching to another brand that has inventory on hand that is close by.

I was in the same boat no bb dealers close so i called the bb rep off their website. Now i have more bb dealers in 2 yrs than anything else and they all have 10 or more to pick from. I bought my 1st outlaw site unseen no demo, because i did not want to pay thru the nose for another exmark. Now there must be 10 dealers within 100 miles. But I understand either way demo before you buy commercial. BB has a rep with demo mowers in his trailer if you call him he will tell you when he is coming thru town.

I will have to try and call the rep then. I really want to demo the 72" diesel because as a homeowner I want to make quick work out of my 4.75 acres, and not slow down when climbing hills. Right now the ZT mow's at about 5mph and it takes me about 3.5 hours to cut all 4.75 acres.

They may not have the diesel as a demo or if they do it might be a 60" deck not 72. They usually carry the more popular sizes.
But you never know definately worth the call. The rep should be able to bring you a commercial version to see the difference in speed and comfort.

I have an email into my state's Rep, we will see what he has to say here in the next few days. But I will need to demo a diesel before I spend that kind of money though whether it's at my home or at a dealer somewhere.
