I have an 03 model BadBoy. I have no complaints. Speed, power, accessibility, comfort, handling, and cutting performance are all top of the line. I have a friend who lives in Arkansas who recently tested one of BadBoys' 04 models. It includes a 31hp with new advanced 72" deck system. BadBoy has new suspension seat which adds to comforrt. He also told me that the 04 model center of gravity has been lowered. He also said that they have also did something different in their linkage set-up, which has given it alot smoother drive as well as handling. They are coming out with a new light commercial and a diesel model with a CAT engine.
