Rated 5 out of 5 by from Badboy ZT Elite After shopping around, I purchasers my Badboy ZT Elite from Tractor Supply. The purchase process was fast and simple. I mow an acre of yard. The ZT reduced my mowing time from 2.5 hours with a lawn tractor, to 1 hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great machine I bought this machine for a benevolent association a month ago. We have a john deere lawn tractor and a toro zero turn. The john deere is worn out so I bought this machine to replace it. Before I retired I repaired every piece of lawn equipment for the parks and recreation department for a major south florida county for 3 years. I chose this machine because what I've learned over the years is a mower is nothing more than a machine designed to move a cutter head over vegetation efficiently. The deck of the mower is everything. The john deere and toro both have stamped steel decks. This machine has a fabricated steel deck of about 3/16" thick steel. The bottom edge is reinforced with steel band iron about 3/16" thick by 1-1/4" wide, Very heavy duty! Both the deere and toro developed cracks in the stamped steel decks around where the cutter heads bolt on. They are too brittle to weld successfully. We replaced the Deere 2 times and the toro once within a year of buying it. This machine is well built and easy to work on because it was well designed. You can get at things without having to stretch and bleed. It handles well, is super fast, cuts beautifully and even has a cup holder and tray big enough for my smart phone. The deck height adjustments are heavy duty steel arms instead of the cheap hook bar used by the toro. The fuel tank is big and has a nice mechanical fuel gauge. I love this machine. Compared to the toro (which is junk) and the deere, this is a pleasure to operate. Well built and well designed, powerful and fast. What more could you ask for? And with a fabricated steel deck, welding repairs can be done in the future if ever needed. The only negative I have seen is there doesn't seem to have any fuel mixture adjustment screws on the carburetor. If you are wondering about this machine, buy it! You won't be sorry. The best part - made in the USA. You are supporting American families.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This mower is a BEAST! I have used this mower a little over 3 months, no issues. It is built like a commercial mower. I can stand on the end of the deck and it does not move. I mow 3 acres weekly and it breezes through no matter what the length of grass. I love my Bad Boy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality machine So far I have put 6 hours on this mower and I have no complaints. It is the residential model but it is built like a commercial mower. The blades on it are excellent and the deck is very thick. All in all I think it will hold up quite well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time saver! Bought the 48” cut Bad Boy Elite. Had to spend extra money to get serviced before using but it now runs great! Perfect for cutting up to 6 acres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far Only got to mow once at the end of the season but the Bad Boy did a great job. However, when I was finished, I couldn't raise the deck. Called the number on the website and they had a new actuator switch in the mail that day. Great customer support!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME BADBOY MOWER This is a awesome mower it cut my mowing time in half. It is a beast a very tough mower. It is my first zero turn mower so it took some getting use too at first. When you make a sharp turn with a zero turn they will tear up your grass. So watch some videos or talk to someone thay has a zero turn about turning and you will learn how not to tear up your grass. After I purchased this mower I wished I had gotten it years ago. Like i said it is a awesome mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built Mower We bought this mower just a few weeks ago. Mowed the lawn in about two and a half hours. Part of our lawn is sod and the rest is undeveloped pasture. This mower doesn't care! This mower should be called bad a** rather than bad boy maybe? It took a little getting used to the zero turn steering, but we love it!
