    Anyone know anything new about better outdoor products? I am starting to think that they folded up. I'm not sure that I would trust buying from anymore small companies anymore, it seems there would be a higher risk of going out of business, making parts obsolete. A quick 36 was my first commercial mower, I spent a lot of hours behind one. Sad if they went under.

    Nothing, zilch. I am close to selling my Quick (which I do like) and going to a different national brand to ensure parts continuity. I don't want to go away from BOP but if they go under hmmmm.

    I sold mine a few months ago before anyone new about what was going on. I bought a 32" metro to replace it last october. The exmark 32 deck works great, wet or dry. I liked my quick 36, but mine was the single hydro wich was tiresome to use after a while. I guess we will see, very soon if they are gonna reopen, because they are losing sales, spring is near, and people are gonna want parts.

    I placed an order for parts more than a week ago so I'd be safe getting threw this season atleast but I don't think the order got processed. No tracking info or email back? Now I may have dead mower and no back up.

    Seems they misnamed themselves.

    Very strange to leave everyone in the dark:confused: Must be that they cant legally say anything yet. But in my opinion very bad for business.

    it just goes to show what happens when you buy off brand to save a few dollars. How much does it really save?

    I am in the market for another 44 inch bop mower. I have emailed them... they keep telling me they hope to be back up and going very soon. I hope this is true but I really wonder what is going on? Im holding out hope they open again.

    They will have news soon. A lot of hard work and effort has gone into BOP so whatever is happening isn't being done to hurt them. I believe there's legal issues that prevent them from talking. I'd imagine once its settled, equipment and parts will be even more readily available.
