    Alright guys I just got back to MN from Badboy's Dealer meeting at the plant in Batesville, AR. I snapped a few photos to show you where they are directing their mowers for the next year. I will do my best to post the pictures first then start throwing out info as the thread develops.

    Hope we can keep things on task and constructive. Lets hear what you like/ dont like and any other comments that help out.

    It isnt a brake to stop the mower its a brake to hold your casters straight when you are on a steep sidehill. The outlaw doesnt have any problems with sidehilling that i have encountered but i guess this even takes it a step further. Sounds like you work your one hydro much less to keep the machine straight.

    I assume that the disk brake on the front caster is to allow the user to lock the front casters in the straight ahead position for side hilling?


    Too late. I see TheOctagon beat me to the answer.

    Thats what i was thinking but it doesnt look like the ones ive seen. They are a good idea for going down hills so you dont cause ruts. Here are the ones ive seen.

    That's a lot of weight for such a small braking system. Did you get to try it out? Wondering how it held up? Are the controls on the sticks?
