I tried the search function and didn't get much help ( too many threads to wade through that had nothing to do with bad boy mowers ) So I am starting this thread. I am considering purchasing a Bad Boy mower and want to know how this brand of mower has worked out for you guys. The few threads I was able to dig up on the search function, several of the posters appeared to be first time commercial mower buyers, or this was their first ZTR, etc... And although I am sure their opinion on the mower is vaild, I am really interested in hearing from people like myself who have been in the business a while and have owned and operated many different brands of machines, and who can appreciate the small differences between one machine and another ( good or bad ) I am very curious how the mowers cut looks. Does it lay down stripes good? Does it discharge well? Does the deck tend to get clogged up with grass clippings that stick to the inside of the deck and have to be scrapped off every day or two? Is there much blow out from the front of the deck? How does it do when backing up over what you already cut, does it leave a mess of clippings from backing up ( the Everride mowers I demoed did this worse than any mower I have used ) or does it still have a clean look like it did from the forward pass before backing up? ( I like to go forward and backwards with the discharge always facing one way, in the fall to mulch/blow leaves off the lawn. ) How fast is the electric lift and do you find it hard to use since there is no selectable stopping point where you can set the cutting height and raise or lower from then on without having to worry that you lowered too low? How do the belts hold up? The Idler pulleys and their bearings? Is the mower fairly smooth with the blades on or is there a vibration in the machine that can be felt? Can you really feel a marked improvement or difference in the ride with the rubber donut suspension? Sorry for all the questions, but like I said I am considering purchasing one and want to make sure I don't buy something I will be unhappy with.
