I own a 36" Bradley hydro walk behind, with a Kolher 18 hp courage engine. I have owned it now for about 2.5 years. This is my 2nd season using it for my accounts. I have 20 accounts that I do on the weekends. This is a great mower. The only thing I had go wrong with it is the drive belt broke, and the battery I had to replace after the first year. The other 2 things were my own fault. I would by this mower again in a hart beat. It may be made in china, but what is not made in china now these days.
