Ive been trying pretty hard to kick them off, but everyone has had the bad boy bug last week... Had a 60 hd zt sold, but guy didn't get approved, he is trying to get loan at his bank monday...
You've come a long way which reflects your ability to own and run a dealership, which in return projects the type person you are. There will never be a good dealer that is not a good person.

Cars are far more complex yet a top of the line 60"+ mower costs almost as much? These manufacturers are raking in the money and laughing all the way to the bank.


P.S. I have never seen a bad boy mower other than the steaming pile of homeowner crap they sell at tractor supply. There are no dealers around here at all.

Why is a scag TT with a vanguard 10k and one with a liquid cooled kawasaki 14k? Both engines are in the same price range. Hype

Bad boy probably has less mark up combined with some corners cut. They will never have a rep like toro or deere but they will always have a customer base due to price.

Thats funny here Ive never met a Toro rep or Deer Rep, but BB, GH, Exmark, and Hustler reps are around with the BB rep bringing the most equipment and really very helpful when needed to be.
