Alright GMLC, you should know I'm not gonna let you by with saying how bad Bad Boy's design looks (using straight lines and angles) compared to the more curved design lines on Gravely's....and then turn around and say this Kubota mower looks good, when it's basically the same design as BB!! Come on now....play fair...some of us are watching you!

Really....it actually looks like it was styled after Bad Boy, or DC....which is fine by me.

On a little more serious note though, what's the deal with the low profile rear tires? Looks like that would take away most of the shock absorbing quality of a regular tire with low air pressure. I don't get that, but maybe I'm missing something.

Sorry the front end looks nothing like a BB. One caster comes straight off the frame and the other is curved. Im not going to hijack this thread.

How can discussing the mower (that is the sole subject of the post) be hijacking?

I think the Kubota looks fine. I just see a lot of straight lines and angles in the design, that reminds me of the design of BB....which you said made BB look cheap. To me, at a glance at least, the outward appearance of parts of the Kubby (especially the deck) look extremely close to a BB.

I just had to pick at you a little for saying the Kubby looks good and BB's look bad, when, to me at least, the designs have lines that look really similar.

The profiles of BB, and DC aren't as sleek looking as some of the other manufactures, but in reality, that doesn't have anything to do with their grass cutting abilities.

But ok....I'll leave it alone.

Not sure why, but your link doesn't work for me. I'd like to see more pics other than the one above if that's possible.

Nope, still nada. I am not a computer person in the slightest. I'll have my wife taker a look at why this isn't working for me when she gets home.
