I'm looking to get a new rider or two. The bad boy's have great prices and i know every once and a while i hear someone going on about how great they are. I really like them but have never seen one and don't know of any dealers. My mechanic (and good friend) says it's a P.O.S. but everything is crap to him unless it is an exmark. He isn't happy if I don't buy the best but he don't realize I don't have a wallet for the best right now. So how do you guys like the bad boys? How do they compare to Scag or Exmark? If anyone doesn't like them, what don't you like about them? How's the cut? Any other info on them I would love to hear. I'm thinking about the model 6000 or the Pup 6000 25 Hp. Is the model 6000 worth the extra 1500 for the 27 hp liquid cooled kawi. Vs. The pup's air cool 25 hp Briggs? Thanks guys.
