Who We Are
A Classic American Success Story
Ground Breaking Mowers, Ground Breaking Success
From a modest 26,000 sq.ft. to more than a million, across 105 acres in a little more than 15 years is a pretty good indicator of our rise as the fastest growing zero-turn mower manufacturer on the planet.
And we’re just getting started.
By breaking ground on additional acres — for our largest building expansion to date — we’re already preparing for the next generation of innovative zero-turn mowers, accessories and options. As proud as we are of the numbers that are quickly adding up due to this success, we won’t forget that only one number matters, and it’s our commitment to keep you, our customer, number one.
We start with better engineers dedicated to innovating a better cut. They work with our product development team, consisting of leaders across every department, to continually improve and deliver new products and features to market.
Brute force technology is deployed factory-wide to bring efficiencies and cost reduction to our build process. Re-investment in our company has been owner-driven from the very beginning and much of our equipment is the first to make its way into production—anywhere.
Then we add and add and add to keep up with our increasing demand. The shear volume of our capabilities — and their flexibility to adapt quickly — allows us to continually make improvements to an ever growing mower lineup and keep up with the fast-growing demand.
THINKING BIG. IT’S HOW WE ROLL. Unique to Bad Boy is our own rolled steel leveling system and sheet cutting plant. Buying steel rolls directly from mills, in bulk, allows us to control costs and pass those savings on to you. It’s a big reason we’re the best dollar-for-dollar value in the zero-turn mower industry.
WE’RE TECHNOLOGY GEEKS. Nobody deploys more technology and robotic power in mower manufacturing. Between our robotic laser cutters turning out 20,000 lbs. of steel per day, and our one-of-a-kind deck bender handling 120,000 lbs., we bend, cut and shape more than 32 million lbs. of steel per year.
Keeping up with the demand for our mowers requires continual upgrades to our manufacturing capabilities. Nowhere is that more noticable than our lineup of non-stop robotic welders. The investment in these welders started very early as we grew — and continue to grow with us today.
WE MAXIMIZE MAN AND MACHINE. Relying on the craftsmanship of 40 welders per shift, they work alongside the finest robot welders, capable of producing more than 500 machines every single day. Our array of advanced laser cutters are capable of cutting out a complete deck in three minutes, and a frame in four.
It still takes craftsmen with skills and great work ethic to bring it all together. Working in conjunction with our growing number of robotic welders, hundreds of parts come together at this stage since virtually every part of a Bad Boy is welded and fabricated — never stamped and bolted.
It Takes Brains And Brawn To Build A Mower This Ruggedly Efficient
By relentlessly and methodically driving out inefficiencies in our mowers and the process we’ve developed to build them, we’re the smart choice from the very beginning. Every mower we build starts with an order from your dealer. Once entered, a whole chain of events begin to take place, beginning with the serial number attached to a frame. From there, the mower is scanned and tracked completely through our internally created computer systems.
Any components for assembly are prepared and stocked accordingly as the mower moves down our assembly lines. Our integrated companion shipping program is already slotting a spot on one of our custom shipping trailers, adjusting the lines in order to stock full trailer loads faster. Everyone from fabrication and welding to assembly and inspection has a say-so in the process of designing and building our mowers. So while our mowers may be rugged, simple to operate and maintain, there’s plenty of home grown smarts that go into making them that way.
OUR POWDER COAT LINE IS 2X BIGGER. We maintain two of the most sophisticated powdercoat lines in ANY industry, and the largest in our state by double. These systems fuse our orange color right into the steel, for durable, long-lasting protection. These systems run virtually day and night to keep up with demand.
In under a minute, a new Bad Boy Mower drives off the line. To keep up with the pace of demand, each mower is tracked during the build stage with our proprietary software (developed in-house). Parts and components are automatically ordered and re-stocked to prevent delays in assembly.
Our parts and accessories business alone is larger than some mower manufacturers. And we’re just as efficient in squeezing out savings for our customers here as we are everywhere else in our operations. In fact, most orders go out the very same day in which they’re placed.
We Give It A Spin First For Quality
A 112-Point factory inspection is the first stop for a Bad Boy Mower before it leaves our plant, and before we’ll ever let it cut your grass. We build the best quality mower in the industry and nobody is tougher on maintaining that claim than the more than 700 employees dedicated to building the very best zero-turn mower you can buy.
We don’t even leave the shipping up to others. With a fleet of specially equipped tractor trailer rigs, our mowers arrive direct to our dealers completely assembled, factory inspected and ready to mow. It’s the final step in assuring delivery to you on our promise of producing a better mower for a better value.
Technology equals savings even in our parts and shipping departments. Our parts deliveries are optimized for savings with our sophisticated CubiScan System. It measures and weighs the exact dimensions of the boxes to increase time savings and shipping accuracy.
TOUCH AND GO MOWER SHIPPING. Shipping is right at our fingertips. Our touchscreen integrated software, developed in-house, automatically selects the most efficient delivery routes for our drivers. This software has saved us millions in fuel costs over the last few years, and gets your mower to you faster.
SHIPS OUT, READY TO MOW. No stock boy assembly required. With our fleet of customized shipping trailers, (customized ourselves, too) we drive them up on two levels and they’re ready to mow as soon as we drive them off. It’s the last step in the process of controlling our costs so we can deliver you more value.
Built To Stand Up To The Task Of All Day Mowing
We’ve re-designed our Outlaw Class of professional-grade zero-turn mowers literally from the turf up. And while they may not look anything like their predecessors, you can be sure they’re built on the reputation of our legendary history of building the strongest, most powerful, most comfortable and best performing mowers on the planet. As much as we’ve improved every nook and cranny of these mowers, the only thing that remains completely unchanged is their incredible long-lasting value-to-performance ratio.
From concept to creation, we’ve set out — as we always do — to build the very best zero-turn mower available. We’re confident commercial zero turn mower models will exceed your every expectation. Because that was our goal right from the drawing board.See Our Commercial Zero Turn Mower Models
Built For The Homeowner, Tough Enough For A Pro
From the very beginning, large landowners and homeowners have recognized the incredible value for the build quality we’ve become known for. Built and assembled right along side their commercial-grade kin, we’ve stepped up the bar for all other mower manufacturers by bringing down innovations previously found only on commercial-grade mowers.
Because of our success in breaking price barriers for this class of residential mowers, we’re squeezing even more costs out by standardizing design components across the entire lineup, including the frame and upgrades in power, comfort and cut quality. Our commitment will continue to be to build the very best value for the demanding homeowner by delivering more and more seasons of ownership. At Bad Boy Mowers, we believe — no matter the price or model — everyone deserves a better finish cut. Compare us pound-for-pound, price-for-price, and you’ll find yourself ‘Mowing with an Attitude.’See Our Residential Zero Turn Mower Models
