Last Winter I ordered a Bad Boy AOSD 7200. It finally arrived just before Thanksgiving. I finally got a chance to put that monster to work and WOW!!!!!! It is a grass cuttin' HAUS!!!

I don't have any pics of it yet but will soon. In the mean time if you are not sure what model Bad Boy I am talking about take a look here:

I have already put 50 hours on it and done the first engine oil and hydraulic oil change. That Caterpillar engine is really efficient with fuel. Burns less than a gallon per hour.

Nice, I didn't know they are putting Cat's in those.  I get to use a Grass hopper 722D at the farm, it sips fuel and doesn't bog much in the tall grass.  It is heavy and requires glow plugs for 5 seconds even in warm weather due to small displacement.  Great machine otherwise.  Now you have no excuse not to mow the yard. :lol:

Mine starts the same with just a few seconds of glow plug heat and it fires right up. I think it may be due to being run so lean. Once warmed up, the Caterpillar engine exhaust is very clean and does not smell like most diesels.

I am mowing about 40 acres with mine right now but that will increase as the size of my apiary increases.

The price has gone up this year by over $2,000.  The owner of the dealer told me that the price would very likely go up so I figured if I was ever going to get one, I had better do it then.  This allows me to split of the amount of work that gets done by the tractor and the Bad Boy.  I would wear my tractor out if I cut this much acreage with it and pile on the hours to boot. 

 

I can cut over twice and maybe 3 times as much with the Bad Boy as I can with the tractor or any of the other mowers.  Plus since I use it for farm use I can depreciate it and I get the sales tax off.
