    Anybody heard of or own any of these types of mowers? There is a local dealer here in Springfield that is wanting my business I'll just say pretty badly based on the offers I was given. I just wasn't sure their reputation. Any input is appreciated....Thanks.....

    What do you want to know, I ran their Lightening model with the 32 Vanguard for about a month. I did a full review on this site about that model.

    Which mower is the dealer pricing and what is he telling you?

    My neighbor recently purchased a ZT w/50" deck and 23hp Vanguard for $5,000 OTD. My other neighbor and myself are looking into purchasing the same machine also.

    This is list price on the 23 Vanguard, Tractor Supply sells the ZT w/60" deck and the 26 ELS Briggs for $4999.00

    Bad Boy dealers want come off list and I ask the Bad Boy company why not and they told me they were so much cheaper than everyone else they did not have to.

    STARTING AT $4,495.00*

    *Set up and destination charges $150.00 per unit minimum.

    I run them and love them. I have a great dealer and they are built like a tank. I have run other brands in the past, but for my conditions they are the only mower for me. They do take some getting use too. I suggest you demo one first cause not everyone like's the same things.

    I've heard of them and saw some in use at Lake of the Ozarks but I have no first hand knowledge. Is that dealer over on Sunshine?
