Outlaw 61" is $7999, the Pup can come with a 31hp Kawasaki too, but that one retails for $7499, but my choice would be the 30hp Kohler for $6999, or jumping up to the Pup on crack and get the Outlaw for $500 more, it would be hard for me to consider the Pup 31 now......lol.

Mechanicaly, they are decent. The sales rep for bad boy came to a dealership I was at a few years ago, left a few demos, really not impressed, very big and not very refined. As far as how they are sold, dealer support (in my area anyhow) they are lacking. I only respect machines sold by servicing dealers. I have seen the residential units sold at Tractor supply, and that bugs me.

As a mechanic I am surprised you say they are decent. I am an industrial mechanical specialist and the BadBoy is mechanically far superior to any other mower in it's price. You guys compare a $7000 BadBoy to a $11000-$14000 machine and the BadBoy still matches up well. BadBoy prices are not cheap they are just more correctly priced. For $14000 you can buy a 5500 pound tractor. The price on some of these big name mowers is out of hand.

I just got off the phone with my dealer, he told me he could sell a Bad Boy Outlaw, with a 31 Kawasaki engine, and 72" deck for $7799.00.

Just got off the phone with Landmark equipment, they have 4 locations in the metroplex, they said they are really impressed with the BB's, and are starting to move quite a few units units. I know they carry Toro, along with quite a few other brands. They said they can't believe how much mower is offered for the price. I think this is their first full season to carry them.

That is a very big and nice operation, their website is also very professional.
