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?
