Zero-Turn Mower | Brand : Bad Boy® | Engine Make : Kohler | Cylinder : 90 deg. V-Twin | Transmission : Dual Integrated Hydro-Gear Hydrostatic Transaxle | Turn Radius : 0 Degree | PTO : Electric | Cutting Width : 54 in. More

Bad Boy® 54 in. 725cc MZ Magnum Zero-Turn Mower features a build-quality usually reserved for larger, commercial mowers. The all-welded, cold-rolled, tubular steel frame with heavy-gauge steel front forks is the backbone of this incredible value. The commercial-grade construction from blade-tip to top makes the MZ Magnum built to outlast any and every mower in its class. The 11-gauge all-steel steel deck is formed and welded with an added 5-gauge deck reinforcement along the edge for rigid, long-lasting performance. Compare to the flimsy, stamped decks usually found on mowers at this price. The quiet, smooth secret at the core of the Bad Boy® Zero-Turn are the heavy-duty, completely sealed hydrostatic drives, featuring all-steel gears and bearings with easily serviceable replaceable filters. Powered by the all-new 725cc Kohler® engine, the MZ Magnum powers through cutting faster and cleaner than mowers at twice the price. Commercial-grade performance is delivered through easy-to-use control right at your fingertips. The Bad Boy® MZ Magnum is classic American muscle and a no-nonsense workhorse--and a blast to drive

Bad Boy® 54 in. 725cc MZ Magnum Zero-Turn Mower is rated 3.7778 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chocolate coated toad! I currently mow 8-10 acres much of which is tall grass, weeds and shelter belts. I use 2 x 60 inch commercial mowers but wanted a smaller, lighter 54 inch mower for use only in the yard ( 1 1/2 acres) ZTR's are notoriously hard on turf when turning and I assumed a lighter mower with smaller wheels would turn more quickly without tearing up the lawn. I read many reviews and looked at many mowers before picking the Magnum 54 inch. I liked the solid feel, the heavy duty deck, no flat front tires, powerful engine and low center of gravity. I owned the mower for 5 weeks, 3 of which were spent in the shop. After 5.7 hours of use I got rid of it. The first time I used the mower it had a good feel to it. It was somewhat loud and rode rough but had great blade speed. I noticed however that I couldn't cut very close to the trees in my yard without leaving a 4 inch uncut ring of grass. It was also cutting uneven and scalping the yard. The day after I mowed I also noticed several large patches of dead grass appeared in my yard. I did a close inspection of the machine and noticed that 2 of the 3 blades were bent, the choke nob was busted, one of the bolts on the steering levers was not tightened, the battery was not clamped down properly, the labeling of the deck height did not correlate with the actual height, and the back left tire wobbled. I thought the mower might be leaking gas ( and hence the dead grass) but could not find the leak. I brought the mower to my excellent mechanic and he fixed the fixable above problems ( the blades had been bent by someone lifting the deck with a fork lift) except could not find a source of leaking gas. I got the mower back and it no longer scalped the grass but still left an uncut ring of grass around the trees. I measured under the deck with a tape and realized that the way the deck was made that the blades can not get any closer than 3 1/4 inches from the outside of the deck in the left posterior quadrant (which is the place on the deck closest to a tree when you are mowing in a circle.) The following day I again had 5 large patches of dead grass in my yard all with a distinct rectangular shape with a diagonal swish away from the rectangle, all about 18 inches in diameter. My wife banned the mower from the yard until the problem was solved and again it went back to the mechanic. He discovered that transaxle support bracket was 12" by 8" in size. It was retaining heat and was only 1 inch above my 3" long cut grass. He described it as a rolling radiator. Whenever I got off the mower to pick up a stick or move a hose it essentially cooked the lawn. Interestingly, the Bad boy elite series have a 1" wide strap much higher above the grass so does not have the same problem. My mechanic contacted the Bad Boy company and asked if they had a heat shield which could solve the problem. The customer service representatives response according to my mechanic. "We can't do anything to fix the problem. Its not our fault the customer lives in an arid climate." I suspect the Bad Boy company will not be in business long with customer support like this. I do life in a dry climate but my yard is heavily shaded and also irrigated. Many parts of the USA also have hot and dry spells at times so I am sure others will have similar problems with the Magnum series mower. Fortunately my local TSC store has excellent customer service and I purchased an extra extended insurance policy with lemon return policy. I no longer own the Magnum nor will I ever purchase any other Bad Boy product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for 1 acre. I bought my mz magnum about a month ago to cut about 3.5 acres of my own property. I was told this would do the trick and so far it has struggled to keep up. In my opinion, this is good for smaller jobs (1 acre and less) and infrequent use (twice a month).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oil Changing This is to Jon V. I had the very same issue as well. I looked at the mower that was more expensive and got to checking it out. Get in touch with Bad Boy cust. service and they have the hose you need to put a stop to the mess you get when changing your oil, if you ask them nicely, they will send you a Very nice cap. My machine is one of the best investments I have purchased in a long time! I am sure that it will last a very long time with the recommended maintenance schedule.(in-which I will teach my 13 yr old son to follow up on as well) because I expect it to last long enough for him to use a long time as well ! Great Machine !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just purchased this mower from TSC I did a lot of research regarding ZT mowers over the past several months. Most of the designs come with Kohler or Kawasaki Engines.. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on the Kohler Courage engine. Most of them bad reviews. But with that said I see a lot of these engines in mainstreem tractors, so maybe it's just the law of numbers. Still, I shy away from too many bad revews. Kawasaki engines seem to be nice, but in my humble opinion are too expensive. Anything with a Kawasaki engine in it seemed to drive up the price at lease several hundred Dollars. What I initially liked about this model was the Briggs and Stratton Engine. Personally I have had several mowers with these engines and have never once had an issue. I've been cutting since I was 11 years old and now I'm 43. With the exception of cleaning a carb from time to time.. not one issue over that many years. So, upon finding zero issues with this model online.. I contacted my local store and spoke with a Michael. He was great.. he really knew the product and had used it before himself. So, I bought it and upon completion of my first cut (3 Acres) I am extreemly happy with it. The cut is pretty amazing, and the speed of this ZT is pretty amazing as well. So far, I would recomend this mower to anyone. The drive train is smooth, the pickup/ acceleration is impressive and the power of this engine is amazing. For the price point, I believe this was about the best I could do for the quality I received. For any of you guys looking to buy one of these..I did find that this particular model is made for TSC only. Is that a bad thing? So far in my experience, I don't think so. I'll repost as time goes on.
