Dont say something you know nothing about. I never said I never demoed one. I have and dont like it. I know more people that have own them and didnt like them then did like them. If you want to know what works in this field, you need to try it out and listen to others. No matter if you dislike what they have to say. If you are closed minded, and think the equipment or way you do things is the best, you are so lost.

You write this, but yet you give an opinion on a machine you have never owned yourself, just hearsay from others and most likely those people have never run a BB either.

That is a good price on that mower. $8099 is what they pro sale for. Yes I have seen other dealers who are selling at cost but that probably not the best place you want to buy from.

wow I haven't even come close to seeing a price like $6499 on a new TC. How much they have on the JD 900 series 60" kawi?

I had a command series 14hp on a pull behind swisher60" and aside from it being underpowered, it ran great for years. the only good part of that mower. Swisher is junk..

I like my bad boy lightning especially for the money. Although its hard to compare across different class of machine, the bb takes a beating and mows like a champ at high speed through just about anythhing. If money was no object then i would consider a brand with a lower ride. I would also get a mower that let you flip the deck up for easy cleaning. All the major brands are good. SCAG left me high and dry when my mower exploded in flames at 66 hours so I wont buy them again on customer service. Although i think any of these mowers are a fire risk due to their design.

hey thanks for the advice. I thought about the bad boy mowers, as I've read quite a few positive (and negative ) things about them. Only problem is there isn't a dealer for about 75 miles and even they aren't too concerned with that line. How much should I expect a 60" comparable to the TC to cost anyway? Also, how much better would a 27hp kohler be than a 25?
