I am sure the Badboy will do a good job for you, and, it is important to go with what works best for your application. But, let's get real here. You were not even close to comparing apples to apples. This was like comparing a Kia to a Mercedes. The Badboy is a much lighter weight machine since it has a gas engine. The Kubota is very heavy and designed like a tank. The Badboy is designed to give you probably 1000 to 2000 hours of service. The Kubota is designed to give you 6000 + hours of service. The price difference should have been huge, which I am sure it was. The Badboy is a pretty good, inexpensive mower. I am not a fan of either machine, but I think any comparison the 2, was kind of a futile effort.
