I cannot write a review as you no longer sell my exact model mower. It is now 3 years old. Having said that, I love it. 5 stars.

I will begin my five star review with the buying process. I spoke with Shannon at the company and explained my mowing needs to her. When I posed a question or two that she could not answer with absolute certainty, she got the answers from her technical staff. I was not originally looking at this model but she and the technical staff assured me I needed this machine and I would love it. They were correct!
It shipped to my door in under a week and is it ever a beautiful machine. I did not have the instructions for uncrating the mower so I contacted Shannon again. She immediately e-mailed the illustrated instructions and the uncrating adventure began. In addition to some metric sockets and wrenches to disassemble the crate, I found a cordless Milwaukee Sawzall to be invaluable. After I cut away some of the lower crate assembly (steel square tubing) and removed all of the upper shipping tubing, I was ready for gas and oil and hooking up the included battery. I hit the starter twice (once to prime the fuel system) and the mower came to life. I ran it for a couple minutes on low speed and checked for leaks or odd noises. Everything checked out perfectly. Okay, time to try out my new mower. I started cutting grass that was 7-8" high with the deck set on 3.5" and that was effortless, even running wide open throttle. The cut is beautiful! I tried the mower out on some slopes I have and the mower felt totally surefooted on approximately a 20 degree slope mowing back and forth. The mower did an awesome job. I have some steeper slopes (on the dam side of a pond) with which to contend and I will ease my way into them with the Bradley. While operating the mower, I made some observations. The mower is quieter than I thought it would be. The mower has great traction. The steering is very sensitive compared to a home owner zero turn that I have. After mowing about a half acre with the new mower, I am getting pretty used to the steering. I only have three acres to go. The mower does not come with an hour meter but I think I will add one. It's a great tool for planning maintenance.
In summary, my review is based on first impressions since I just got the mower today. The mower is a beast and quite agile. I am impressed with the customer service of the company and with the quality of the mower. Everything is heavy duty. I have a neighbor who wants one after seeing me mow with mine. If he springs for one, I can help him uncrate it since I now have the experience.

Great value. I have been running my compact stand on 48 for almost a year commercially and love it. Well built and easy to operate, great value for the money.

Purchased my compact 48 from Bradley Mowers in Bradley IL. The dealer there is fantastic very helpful and made sure I knew all the functions of the mower before I took it home. Let me start out by saying this machine is a beast! If you want a quality cut at a fast pace this is the machine for you! The overall build of the mower is one of the best I have seen. Heavy duty steel, bolts, wheels everything is very well built. Even the paint job is good. Very high quality at a very fare price. The stability of the machine is very good on slopes, it weighs a fair bit so it stays put, even in damp grass. One thing I can say "I wish" was better is that the controls are a little low. I'm average height 5'-11" and they are a bit low for me. Other than that I have no complaints. I highly recommend this machine for anyone wanting to cut down on there yard time. I'm not a commercial mower but this defiantly has the quality that can withstand daily use.
