Here in Oregon I haven't seen any. I really didn't know a lot about them until the demo. Wow was I impressed. It's just a totally different ride than all the other ZT's I have tried. I'm real happy about the choice I made. Bad Boy XP Outlaw with 61"/31 hp Kaw.

I really like kubota but it also depends on what you are doing. How is the QOC of the badboy?

How is this the mowers fault? I wouldn't take any mower on ground that soft.

Well I guess you wouldn't mow in Oregon in the spring. Its just something we have to deal with until about July.then the ground starts to firm up. Weight distribution is key.your right in that a heavy diesel is best on flat open areas like ranches and farms. I just was set on the Kubota and wanted to give it a try. Besides it getting stuck there isn't much I liked about it.

What does a comparable Bad Boy cost compared to the Exmark Lazer? Say 60" deck and 29-31hp motor? The Lazer is around $14k with the rear bagger. I've been curious about these bad Boy mowers since the Exmark pricing is getting out if hand.
