    Has anyone seen the new Bradley commercial mowers?? They are very low priced and seem to be perfect for getting through gates etc.

    They make a 32" for $1,499 at my local dealer. He also has a 48" model for $1,999!! Both are belt drive with a 5 speed Peerless trans. They look really heavy duty for the money.

    FYI....these mowers might be perfect for an extra backup type mower... I am thinking of getting a 32" for gated areas myself.

    Not sure about the Bradley, but do you really think 'Echo Rules'?

    Totalcare.....yep...Echo is the best stuff I have ever used long term.

    I have tried a little bit of everything and Echo has the best combination of quality, power, longevity etc. for me.

    Have you tried any of their stuff lately??? The new PB-650 blower is absolutely awesome!!

    Hey Echo,

    You have an internet site address for Bradley? That 32 inch sounds like a good deal. Thanks Dj

    I just saw one the other day at a dealer open house. I was specificly looking for a 32. It looked really! cheap. The wheels were so tiny I don't see how they could even move it. I ended up buying the new Ferris 32 hydro. You get what you pay for.

    I wouldnt touch that thing with a ten foot pole. After looking at them, they are far to flimsy and cheap looking to suit me. The welds suck, and the wheels are to small, and who sells a commercial (read that, "high quality") grade mower for less than $2000 brand new?
    Like Lawn Crafters just said, "you get what you paid for" very true. Stay away from them.

    :cool:
