I recently bought a Bad Boy MZ48 Zero Turn mower. It has a 48 inch deck and a 26hp B/S pro. I did a lot of reading and reserch on this site before buying a new mower and after using it I am confidant that you can not get a better mower for the money. These things are TOUGH!! While I dont have a LCO I do mower my yard, close to an acre and the old ladys yard across the road that is around the same size. I have not had the mower for very long but from what I can tell it was a great investment.
