    It's green and IDENTICAL to the bad boy mower. I never heard of Montana before but I demoed one today and yup...its identical.

    They make tractors too but who cares. 26 hp liquid cooled for $10500 canadian. This is one mean machine.

    Bad Boy makes the Montana so they should be identical....

    Last I heard, Montana terminated it's contract with BadBoy. Unless they renegotiated their deal, you are looking at an orphan mower there.
    Montana had to price them so high, after paying Bad Boy to build them, that the dealers could not sell the things. Our local Montana dealer would not put them on his lot.

    Funny thing. If you turn the floor rubber around it says "Bad Boy".

    Our local dealer is AWESOME. He sells the units along with the dreaded Husq. units. I like the Mon/Bad Boy mower, it is the same both inside and out and I have put in for financing the unit.

    Problem is this....I pay 10500 now and have the last few remaining weeks having one helluva fun time mowing or wait for 5 weeks, endure with what I have and get it for about 9000.....decisions decisions.

    Yep, they are one in the same mower. However, I think if you buy it under the badboy name it's MUCH cheaper.

    Who did you drive for?
    How about that. I was the assistant plant manager at the TXI plant in Paradise for about 4 years. Also worked at several other TXI rock and sand plants in the 10 years I was with them. Worked for TXI from 1980 - 1990.
