Yes Bad Boy OWNERS please post up your pictures. I don't want to see dealer posted photos, I want to see photos posted by the actual users.

Just cause im a dealer shouldnt matter about my customers pictures they send me. I am not your average dealer though my personal cell number goes with the mower and we are the worlds largest bb dealer now. I am a commercial cutter that became a dealer after i was blown away by bbs customer service. I started selling out if my house 6 years ago.. my pictures shouldnt be classified as dealer only pictures...lol

I bought the morer in July it has right at 50 hrs on it now. Always starts up great. It handles great and is really tough. I get great costomer service at Skyline mowers in GA not far from where I live. They stand behind there mowers. I believe the 60" cut was the most sold mower in the US. I believe they come with better motor options than most other mowers I have the 852 cc kawi fx mower which is a step up from a fs kawi motor. It is easy to maintain oil changes are very easy and gresing all the joints are very easy to get to. I am a solo operator.. not been in this industry long but I do my research I wouldnt go with any other brand I look for them to make scag and other zt mowers to have to drop there price to compete with them. The one I own is not for hill sides though at all I know where some people use them on hill sides but where I am from it could get you killed.. Thats what I have my snapper pro walk behind for which I think is better than exmark wider wheel base bigger tires and also you have the option to get the better kawi fx motor. I give it a five star out of five

Not from Last season but I will have to putt some up once I get going in the next few weeks. Im sick of reading peoples post on it bein the cheap mower maybe if you buy the residential one. LMAO I spent around 7.5 or 8k on it but even if scag or any of the over priced mowers where the same price as the BB I would still go with the BB any day of the week. None of my costomers complained about its cutt last season. and this year I dont look for them to either nor in the future but I take pride in my work and I am a very happy bad boy owner. Ill try to get some cutt pictures up in the next month though once the lawns start getting pretty over in east tennessee

retro what Bad Boy would compare to a Dixie Chopper Classic? What would I expect to pay?
50" cut.
8 Gallon fuel capacity.
True 27 HP rated engine or better.
16 CC pumps with.
18 CI wheel motors.
Fan and hydro cooler.
10 MPH minimum top speed.
Factory OCDC.

I ask because I just bought a Dixie Chopper Classic 6 months ago and will be buying another mower this coming year and would really consider Bad Boy. I will also be looking at Snapper-Pro and Gravely. Might just get another Classic.

I'd like to see how it cuts as well. BB does has a bad rep but thats just personal opinions... Keep us informed when you get some pictures
