Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living up to the name I have had this mower for about 2 months now and absolutely love it. My grass is a very thick lawn which required me to mow over it a couple of times to chop up the discharged grass. This rascal chews it up in one pass and saves me tons of time. I would highly recommend this mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Owner I bought this a few weeks ago. I owned a Dixie Chopper for over 10 years. It was a Great Machine. I needed a replacement and this Bad Boy mower appears to be built with quality and with a better mower deck. I have used it 3 times and am very impressed. I look forward to it giving many years of service. I will let you know if my opinion changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pros and Cons Pros- I’ve had mine for a month now. Very strong 7000 kohler engine. Frame is rock solid. Had no problems at all mechanically. 5 hour break in oil change was super easy to do. Handles very good. Cons- Seat is kind of tight for heftier people with arm wrests down but put them up and mower has very smooth comfortable ride. No advanced discharge chute system like the higher models so you have to bungee cord the discharge chute up because it won’t stay up by itself. I even tightened nuts and it stayed up by itself for about 2 mows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to use I am thankful for my new toy that helps me cut the grass much faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real great piece of equipment I bought this piece of equipment after looking at box stores and comparing prices for the value you can't beat it . Before you buy from a box store sit on a Bad Boy look at the quality it's hands down better . Than what you will buy from a box store. I went from cutting Two Acres of grass in Three afternoons to ONE afternoon. Now I have time to go fishing !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad Boy, Bad Grass The steel decking is so strong, compare it to others to see for yourself. Cuts the grass and what ever else it goes over. Easy to adjust heights. Ran for 8 hours in a week looking for more grass to cut. Good ride. Oil change at 5 hours, next time I will tilt it to get the oil to drain better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a good belt design It is a good mower and it gets the job done quickly but the bolt holding the belt has broken 5 times now in about a month. Other than that it is a good mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a really nice mower! I bought this mower today. I mowed my yard with it and had zero problems. I have a pretty steep hill in my backyard and this mower did an excellent job horizontally and vertically. My rad is about an acre in size and I mowed the whole yard in about 30 minutes. I went with the ZT Elite because of the size of the hill in the yard. I wanted to be sure I was buying a high quality product that will last me many years of use.

No, the ZT Elite is not commercial. The Maverick offered through TSC is a better fit for this job.
