This is a fantastic machine. VERY fast, great on hills, and very comfortable to operate. Mows a 1.5 lot in around 35 minutes and cost half as much as other brands. This mower is a workhorse that's built like a tank! The cut quality is exceptional and the price is unbeatable.

Got my Bradley stand on about 2 weeks ago. I looked at every available stand on mower on the market and decided on the Bradley because of the way it handled so smoothly and because of it was about $3,000 cheaper then the competitors. It has been an outstanding mower so far. Leaves a very nice cut!

Received my 52 inch stand on about two weeks ago and so far I couldn't be happier. I test drove every brand of stand on's before deciding on the Bradley. What appealed to me number one was the outstanding price, but also, its steering is the smoothest of all those I tested. There are a few small things that could be improved upon, but all in all, and excellent machine.

I bought this a month ago and I LOVE IT! I did a lot of research and tried to find any flaws, but couldn't. I have run the machine for 200 hours now and have had 0 problems. Buy it!!!

So let me start by saying that without a doubt this is a top quality machine, but for the money absolutely nothing can beat it. Heavy gauge steal used throughout the entire machine. No cheap plastic to save cost here. All major components are high quality, from the engine down to the AGM interstate battery. Most cars don't even come with a AGM battery. If I had to fine some criticism it would be pretty much centered around the fuel department. The fill up location is under the pad, there is no way to tell your fuel level, and I wish the access pad was on a hinge. Another thing of note is while I love that you turned the engine side ways for perfect exhaust placement and easy oil changes, it does make one of the spark plugs difficult to get to. It's a give and take situation so I'm not marking it as a con. Please please I'm begging you guys make a 36" stand on or smaller please!!!!!!!!.

This is an awesome commercial grade stand on. I have used it all summer long and it gets the job done. What's best about buying Bradley is the support (Chris) I received when I have questions. Check out my youtube video cutting some tall grass with the 52" Bradley.

Can't believe more people haven't reviewed this mower. For the money you just can't beat it. Great mower at a great price. Doesn't have fancy computers or EFI, it just cuts grass. Been stable on hills and nimble in the turns. At the end of the day what more do you need? I do wish it came with an hour meter though. When is the 36 with 23x8.5 tires coming? I'd buy one.

We bought a 52” Bradley stander and we absolutely love it, we have had it for a week now and it cuts through tall thick grass like a champ, go over it twice because of the thick grass and it’s perfect. Couldn’t ask for a better mower. And the customer service is excellent. We highly recommend Bradley mowers. Support local Buy local

Bought the 52" stander, it cuts amazing. Good customer service.

Great commercial mower. I have put 100 hrs on the machine. The price is unbeatable. It holds its own in any circumstance wet grass, hillsides. I own a ferris Z2 and this Bradley 52 compares quit well. The ferris has a better operator platform and is honestly more comfortable and balanced.The Ferris is a better machine. With this being said I would not hesitate to purchase another Bradley stander or any other Bradley product. The price point at 3K less is unheard of.
For making this mower better I would redesign the deck lift system it is weak compared to the Ferris Z2 and other mowers. The B&S engine is a TANK and will crush any grass, heavy grass, light brush. Draining the oil is not as easy as the "easy drain says." The oil drain is hard to reach and position the hose to allow gravity to drain the oil.The operator position is not near as comfortable. The mower handles great and I would even argue that is tracks better than the Ferris. The commercial hydros are the same as the Ferris and handle tough grades. I live in the Blue ridge mtns and this mower handles every slope that I have put my Ferris on. Put some weight on the front casters. I would recommend wider tires like the ferris for a better footprint and would lead to less rutting.

I own one of these machines now and we are currently ordering a second one. We have been very happy with our Bradley commercial stander mower. We have the 52 inch model with the 26 horsepower Vanguard engine. The machine is super fast and the cut quality and productivity is great. Plus on top of all of this the price is outstanding when you compare it to all other manufacturers. I have had dealings with the main headquarters in Illinois as well and these guys are great with answering questions and customer service. I highly recommend anyone in the market for a stander to take a really close look at Bradley mowers

Picked up my Bradley 52" stand on about 1 week ago. This is a fantastic machine. VERY fast, great on hills, and very comfortable to operate. I had tried most of the other brands that cost $8000 to $9000 and this machine performs just as good as them. So far I couldn't be happier with the machine. I can't tell you anything about the dependability yet ,but I will do an updated review next season when I have put some more hours on it. Good job Bradley mowers I think this one will be a home run.

I recieved my 52" stand on in mid April. Initially I thought what have I done when it arrived with one of the zt 3400 hydro pumps with bolts in it but not tightened to the frame. I immediately contacted customer service who is second to none and they were on it! There are no Bradley dealers in my area. They arranged a technician for me to drop it off and 3 days later it was back in hand. Bradley not only builds a top notch product they STAND BEHIND IT 100%. Now what can I say about the mower? I looked at stand on mowers for a long time before making this purchase. I made the decision based on reviews and a couple of YouTube videos and I have had no regrets. This thing is amazing , cuts thick grass like it's not even there. Chews banks, ditch lines, and small tight spaces up for breakfast!! It is built like a tank!! You won't be sorry for purchasing a Bradley Compact Stand on mower. This is my first Bradley but will not be my last. I will order my second by spring 2019. If your on the fence buy it. There is one thing you will have if you buy one of the more popular brand stand on machines and that's 3,000 - 4,000 bucks less in your bank account but that's ALL you'll have!!

I’ve been in the lawn care business for a number of years. I’ve purchased the ‘green’ machines, the ‘yellow’ machines, and the other ‘red’ machines. Believe me when I say nothing compares to these Bradley mowers. Dollar for dollar, these mowers are leaps and bounds beyond the others. My machines are used bones about it. Fortunately, Tom, Simon, and the crew over at their shop understand the rigid workout that their products are exposed to. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE AT BRADLEY IS FAR BEYOND ALL OTHER BRANDS OUT THERE! I have nothing but praise for their products and the support they provide to their customers. It may take a couple years but I will be slowly converting my fleet to all Bradley products as I rotate my fleet. High quality products at an excellent price with outstanding customer support....what else is there!

I just bought my 52 stand on Bradley mower about a week ago. I have been mowing every since. I enjoy every moment of it. I actually had a dealer close to me (about an hour away) so I got it from them (ISS) The main reason I bought this machine was because of price (and the color, lol) and the the great reviews that I seen on here and YouTube. I just wanted a affordable commercial mower without having to break the bank. I'm planning on banging Bradley mowers in my business for a long time. Check it out on my channel:

my 52 stand on was delivered to my house last week. Did the uncrating serviced and have mowed one week. Did a lot of researching on pros and cons before purchasing this mower vs scag wright stander ferris etc before making my decision. ie no dealerships available that did not deter me after owning ferris with multiple dealers in town wont quarantee your mower even still under warranty will be up and running the next week. trust me went thru that first ferris I owned let alone if you need parts warranty wont qaurentee parts are in stock. As far as quality of mower compared to other mowers mentioned. This mower has the same pumps and engine as my Ferris is2100, have no complaints with any issues owning vanquard or hudrogear pumps. My decision was made. The other issues I read concerning previous buyers of Bradley mowers since servicing the mower myself I can see they are addressing. So to sumarize after mowing one week, should the spindles come with grease fittings , does the brake handle need upgraded? My answer probabley. My deduction for the quality of this mower and the price of the above mowers mentioned, The Bradley mower is putting out a very competitive mower. And I can see purchasing another one in the near future it does everything you need a stand on zero turn to do

Great machine for the money. Tested a demo and bought it. Pretty simple. Have ran it 3 years. No real complaints or problems. Really like the stand on mowers. Wasn’t sure I would. Great bang for the buck !

I have had this Mower for three cutting seasons. It has been great for us !Powerful , fast, leaves a pretty cut.
Customer Service is great at Bradley , if you break something , or need something , they will ship it right to you. Been very happy as a Bradley consumer , and for the price you can’t beat it.

This was a great purchase. The mower was more powerful than I expected and gives a very nice cut. Have had my mower for three years and am beyond happy with its performance.
Would recommend to anyone with a large lawn or property.

great mower with plenty power love the cut its comfortable cost less than the name brands cant ask for a better mower

I've been a customer for years and plan to keep it that way. The mowers are A++, built like tanks and the staff is A++. It's rare to find a company that has both, I'm sticking with Bradley.
