i purchased one 2 weeks ago and the mower is running and cutting great. it is very similar to an exmark, it has a 15hp kohler command, peerless 700 tranny, sturdy deck, height adjust is the same, pistol grips. mower was well worth th 1500 brand new, i am going to buy a 48 at the end of this season when i sell my 48 scag. anyone who wants a cheap but good mower the bradley is the way to go, the dealer told me the price will go up next season because this is their first season bulding mowers. great back up machine or full time, cheaper brand new than some used ones i have sen in the paper.
