So, who bought BOP ?????

The founder of BOP stated the company has been sold, to a manufacturer who's name we would all know.
Well, who bought BOP???
Let the speculation begin.
My guess: Ted Coriher, of "Ted Brakes" fame

I would say Bad Boy based upon the fact they have no walk behinds and it would be a good fit for them.....literally every other manufacturer out there has a walk behind.

Zero plans on getting rid of my BOP Duallies:
(2) 32's, 36 and the 44. The last has to flat out be the lightest weight mower in it's class.

Anyhow...what clues were there out there...that lead a few to believe Dixie Chopper bought them...?
