    09 Bradley 48" walk behind hydro, has 18 hp Honda GXV-610. Bought new in February '10. No hour meter but my log says 61 hrs. I must sale to buy a rider as I have very large properties now. Includes two-wheel sulky, steel bag, mulch kit. Mows great, I want 2,000 for all. Located in South Arkansas please P.M. me.

    If there is interest let me know and I'll throw up some pictures. I would be willing to meet someone within reasonable distance. Also, I would be interested in trading the walk behind and cash for a commercial zero turn, but would rather sale.

    Thanks, I was gonna do that this evening. The mower runs great, it stripes very well with just the deck. The 18 hp Honda will pull me around very easy. The thing I have been most impressed with is the cut quality. Very smooth cut, and the 18 hp Honda is stout enough that I never really have to double cut anything. Anyone in the area is welcome to come and mow my yard with it to try it out. The hydros are hydro-gear, and they never slip. The spindles, pumps, belts and all moving parts are industry standard parts. Mower now has 67 hrs. according to log. I still use this mower every day so it will accrue. I would put the Honda up against any Kawasaki or Kohler or anything else. I have used a 20hp Kohler before and the Honda 18 will do anything it will do and get better fuel economy while doing it. I have an 8 acre property that I do every two weeks with this mower and it eats it up. I clean the mower every two weeks, lubricate all linkages with silicone lubricant, and keep lucas synthetic grease in the bearings and all points. The belts stay in adjustment, so they are like brand new. I just want to sell to put the money down on a dixie chopper 2750 classic, as I can pay cash for it if I get a reasonable amount for the Bradley. I really like this mower, and I actually can't believe that more people don't use them. After I get the Chopper I will get a 36" bradley hydro for my small gates, then I'll be set. If this mower was a 36" I would not ever consider selling.

    How are the pistol grip hydro controls on this ?? Are the pistol grip controls soft or hard ?? You said that you have only used it on your 8 acre property ... so ny the time you finish your property how are your forearms feeling ??

    I've never noticed a problem. I've heard people talk about the stiff levers, but they feel comfortable for me.
