I started looking into Bad Boy, but I found the closest dealer was in Arkansas. Before buying, you may want to check to see how far the nearest dealer is located to your place of business and then check on the quality of support. The one dealer they had in my town stopped handling this brand. Hope this helps.
I sent an e-mail to Bad Boy last night about customer/dealer support in my area. Got an answer this morning, it basically said they did not know if I had a dealer in my area or not, call a 800 number and talk to a sales rep. to see if there is one.....I know more about their dealer network here than they do I guess, there is one within 60 miles. I will call him tomorrow I think, might even go see him.
I went and saw local dealer ( 60 miles each way). He offered me a Bad Boy 6000 AOS mower which he was using as a demo unit for $7,000.00. It had a broken hour meter on it, he said it probably had twelve hours on it. Looked more like 1200 to me. He was not even sure what year model it was. I asked him when he would have a new unit in and he told me he was not going to stock them anymore as there was not a market in this area.
I also called area distributor and was told no other dealers were in this area at all and any warranty work would have to be done at a registered dealer. I was about to bid on one on e-bay that really looked like a great deal. Oh well, I continue looking at mowers....
Picked up one today from the Bad Boy Factory, they are fast, built extremely well, great price, I am more than happy with the purchase and will buy more this year, Buy one you'll be glad you did. Call Bad Boy Mowers and ask for Kevin he will do you right.
