    Tomorrow, I plan on buying a BOP Quick 44" Samurai w/16 hp Kawasaki. I have searched, demoed, read, and read some more. For $3,000.00, I don't think it can be beat. To me, customer service AFTER the sale is critical. From all indications, BOP provides just that. www.betteroutdoorproducts.com

    The reason for the purchase is I have 16 & 13 yr. old children that need to start earning their keep.

    Can anyone talk me out of it? :usflag:

    yes, lil' man should be earnin' his keep. I'd get em' a pushmower first, then bump to a self propelled, THEN a walkbehind. :laugh:

    16 and 13 year old girls are not going to handle a 44" Quick very well at all.

    A self propelled 21" may be better for the girls

    I'll be honest, I've never looked at a BOP product.

    However, if it's only a single drive hydro, where more or less have to muscle around to turn, like a single drive Ferris that I tried once, they'll never touch the thing.

    ....To get back on topic, I ordered the 44" Samurai today from BOP. I've never owned a WB before, but demoed many before this purchase - my decision was based ONLY on the numerous recommendations from owners on Lawnsite, great price, and customer service from BOP. With a 30 day money back guarantee, I'll try it. :usflag:
