Ya that would be rough. Just look for a mower that has suspension or the front forks can isolate back and forth so its not rigid. Bad boy isn't the only opion.

This unit is B U I L T!

I can honestly say that this is the best built unit I have found on the market.
With the lawns we cut and service, it is a necessity. Does it through the grass/leaves and cut through 2' of growth in 1 pass (which is unheard of)

I have ordered 1 unit so far and plan to replace all my equipment with "BAD BOY".

**And they also have a snow blower attachement for the units.
Jibber jabber is all I heard after I read best on the market.... You might say one of the best but I know it's not that far superior... I have already demoed one this year... Didn't like it...

If you do snow removals as well as grass, I suggest you also get the snow blower attachment (well worth the $) since it makes use year-round.
The unit I used had 75 hours on when I rented it and I added 60 hours during my rental.
I highly suggest that you order the foot pedal extension (it was quite a reach for me at 5'6").
Which motor did you order? (gas or diesel)
**The only thing I had a problem with was the Transition Chute (attached to the leaf blower on the bagging system) I wish it was made with a more rubberized material for more heavy duty durability** No problems with the mower at all.

This mower simply cuts through it all! You should be quite happy with it.
I demo one I thought the ride sucks compare to my Dixie Chopper
They was a mower to have now nobody around here has them. There was 2 different companies trade there mowers for them now they trade them off went back to Exmark and Scag.

I didn't like the Outlaw XP becuase I couldn't see the trimming side of the deck, the rear of the machine stuck out way to far, hydraulics felt cheap, And the deck would come loose when you got on some uneven ground becuase of the way they had em mounted... Talked to another LCo that bought one last year and he said the cut was good but he couldn't keep the nuts and bolts tight and his deck was always coming off...
