You will love your Rouge- I just purchased a Maverick - wonderful machine. Just did not have the money for a higher level commercial Rouge.

Enjoy!

Here are a few pictures of what I ended up with. Bad Boy Rogue 2021 with the 35hp Yamaha EFI and 72" deck.

Took it for a spin around the property and a few swaths of mowing just to check it out. Man, I think the suspension is really going to be a major benefit for me. My lawn is mildly bumpy all over and this really smooths things out. This thing is massive too. It's all proportional so it doesn't really look that big in pics but it is a monster. 72" deck is 12" more width that I had with my Deere x758. And I think it isn't as loud at WOT as the diesel on the Deere. Grass is getting green under the old long brown stuff so it won't be long until this gets a good workout.

Will be very interested in what you think of the Yamaha in terms of Fuel usage and long term durability. Please keep us updated thru the summer.

Sweet looking machine!

That is an awesome unit.

This weekend I pulled the trigger on a Bad Boy as well but a lower end unit. Got the 54" ZT Elite with the Kawasaki engine. It has a suspension and I also have a bumpy lawn to mow so that was one reason to get it. Seems like a lot of bang for the buck.

I have a lot less to mow...about 2 acres. It should cut my mow time by 50% compared to the 48" rider I have been using. At 70, it will be my last mower. Almost went with an even less expensive option but saving $1500 over the next 15 years is not that important to me.

The way our government is pissing away money, that $1500 may not buy much down the road anyway...lol.

Bad Boy has been pushing hard into the commercial market over the past few years. I suspect you will enjoy your machine.
My neighbor bought a smaller residential Bad Boy in 2018 and has not had any problems.

Interesting discussion, I just bought a Toro Titan 60” with MyRide as it will save a lot of time mowing around trees and objects. Looking forward to delivery in a few weeks.
