Are you just a dealer/middleman?
Absolutely not! Bradley Mowers is a Havener Enterprises, Inc. company specializing in quality outdoor power equipment at half the cost. We hold numerous patents on our products. We have been manufacturing and selling products for nearly 25 years.
Do you charge sales tax?
Yes; Illinois sales tax is 6.25% for orders shipped to an address in Illinois. Effective July 1, 2020, the new Bradley, Illinois sales tax will increase overall sales tax to 7.25%.
Will your sulky fit my mower?
The short answer is: yes! Our sulkies can fit most mowers. You need an unobstructed rear facing portion of the engine deck ranging in width from 5" (2000N models) to 15" (2006N models) with 2 to 4" of clearance for the hitch. If the hitch will not fit as-is, simple modifications can be made.
Bradley Mowers? Are you the same company as the David Bradley Manufacturing Company?
David Bradley was a pioneer in the outdoor power equipment industry. Sears, Roebuck and Co. later purchased the David Bradley Manufacturing Company. We are located in the Bradley, IL – the same town that was named for David Bradley. Bradley Mowers was branded out of respect for our local town.
I tried to purchase a mower from you. Why won’t you ship to my state?
Depending on the location, we sell through our sales partners and dealer network. Please call 815.935.8383 opt. 2 for more details and a solution.
How do you sell at such low prices? There must be a catch.
We use the same (or better) industry standard engines, hydrostatic drives, batteries, tires, belts, pullies, clutches, and switches as the big name brands. We just do not have a huge markup or go overboard with "promotions." All the other customers doing big giveaways and other rebates are just charging you for it whether you take advantage or not.
Do offer any financing options?
Yes, we offer Sheffield Financial through our dealers. In addition, we offer our own in-house financing. Fill out the contact form, call us at 815.935.8383 Opt. 2, or check out our financing page for more details. Financed mowers are sold at the MSRP price as listed.
Why is financed equipment subject to the MSRP Price?
Financing is expensive for any manufacturer or dealer (think $600 or more). Most companies build the cost of financing into all their sales rather than just those people who use it.
Why was my credit card order declined?
This is either a daily charge limit issue with your issuing bank or an issue with billing name and address information. We use a 3rd party system to verify all of our credit card transactions as we have experienced too many issues of credit card fraud. The order you enter must correctly match the name on the card and the complete billing address, state, and zip code on file for that card. Verify that the issuing bank of your card has the correct information. Sometimes, your location at the time of the order may affect the approval process, especially if you are shipping far from your billing address. Some people will take this as a personal insult (please do not take it personally as it is all automated - if anything, blame your bank). If you have a problem with a website order, please call us at 815.935.8383 opt 2 during business hours so we can take care of you as soon as possible.
If your credit card information is stolen, you will receive your money back from a fraudulent purchase. Unfortunately, we lose a lot once the item has shipped in a fraudlent purchase.
