Greg, Can you elaborate exactly why the Bad Boy is a piece of junk? What about them is a problem? I really want to know.

You had mentioned the snapperpro earlier. I just ordered a 61" with 27 kawasaki and suspension seat for $6800. It is a Ferris without the deck suspension, so quality is good. I beilever the toro you are talking about has a lower hydraulic system with 10 cc pump in lue of the 12 on the exmark. That mean speeds will be slower.

assuming your used to the older kohlers cuz the newer ones suck and have a lot of head gasket and electrical problems that even kohler cant fix

The 500 is still a z master I believe. the turbo force deck normally has the 12cc pumps and the 7 gauge deck has the 10cc pumps. The decks are the same thing beside the bullnose on the front and adjustable baffle. Stick with the Kawasaki engine. You could try Cub Cadet I know a lot of people knock them but I have owned a few mower and I haven't had issues with my Lesco (same as Cub tank)

10ga deck is not as thick as 7 ga also transaxels will not perform well on hills

I think you would be happy with a Bobcat Preditor pro. We just bought a new bobcat and love it. They are built strong.
