Anyone have a Bad Boy?
I have used a Lawnboy Insight 10684 for the last 5 years, and I am looking for a new mower (this one still works, but I want to sell it before it doesn't). Can anyone tell me about the new Bad Boy fixed wheel mowers from Tractor Supply? Looks like a burly mower for $400.
I am also considering the Sears Snapper 190cc RWD 675 briggs on sale for $350 now, Honda HHR216VKA, and the 10642 Lawnboy at HD with a 3 year warranty. I prefer the bar drive system from LB - and the 10642 has it - but I am not sure about the quality of this one. How different is the 10642 vs. my old 10684 (they look similar except for the tilting handle)? I have had to clean the carb screw on the Tecumseh several times, but besides that the LB has worked well. Is the Honda thumb drive system reliable?
BTW, lawn is slightly sloped suburban 1/4 acre of hybrid burmuda. Lots of forward/back around trees and childrens playhouse, so I don't want personal pace. Mow from late March thru November.
