The Bad Boy Outlaw XP Zero Turn Mower series are available in three different models which can be classified based on the type of engine they carry.
Interested users will be tasked with choosing between the model that uses a Yamaha EFI 824cc engine, one that packs a Kawasaki FX850 engine or the other one which houses a Vanguard 36hp engine.
Whichever the user opts for, they still get the same 90-degree V-twin cylinder with a 12V starter. The engines are air-cooled and require unleaded gasoline to be driven.
Speaking of drives, all of the featured engines have been tested to take the mower forward at maximum speeds of 12mph. That is surely impressive when compared to many other mowers on the market these days.
- Three engine types – 824cc Yamaha EFI, 852cc Kawasaki FX850 and 993cc Vanguard 36HP.
- Different cutting decks (54”, 61” and 72”), depending on the engine type
- Dual hydraulic tanks with dual individual drive motors
- Front and rear compression shocks to dampen vibrations
- Adjustable cushioned seat
- Self-lubricating bushings for better performance
- Reaper Turf tires for better traction and grips
- Dual fuel tanks, holding up to 13.8 gallons of gasoline at once
- Heat-treated cutting blades with high lift
- Electronic ignition with 12V starter engine
True to the manufacturer’s promise, the Outlaw XP Zero Turn Mower series pack enough heat to rival many competing mowers around today.
Professionals will especially love the combination of a dual hydraulic tank and individual drive system to deliver better performance. That is in addition to the hydraulic systems being bigger and robust enough to support cooler operations while providing all the power the machine needs.
Holding up to 13.8 gallons of fuel across both tanks, the machine is guaranteed to last a day’s job with minimal breaks in between. That is not to mention the addition of a new Yamaha engine with 61 inch and 72 inch cutting decks.
No matter the model, all units in the Outlaw XP Zero Turn Mower series come with a standard steel frame. This makes them sturdy enough against damage and abuse when work is being done on rocky field.
The 23-inch tires on the back supports the machine’s weight effectively while the rest is balanced out by the 13-inch wheels up front. Besides the support they provide for the machine build, they are also strong enough to provide better traction in hilly areas.
Depending on your mode of operation, you can operate the mower with three different cutting decks. There is also the comfort of allowing professional mowers choose what engine they would like to use on their machine.
Furthermore, there is a case for operator’s comfort with the cushioned seats. There are front and rear compression shock absorbers in place too, dampening the vibrations around the machine. That helps keep the machine parts safer while also ensuring safety and health of the operator.
There is not much else to say here if you’ve seen the mower before. The models take a deviation from the normal red coloration that many other mowers employ.
Snapping a lot of orange onto black detailing, they are a beauty to behold. A storage basket is there for convenience, contributing to the overall aesthetic appeal of the unit. With a premium seat and an ergonomic build to match, you won’t get tired of looking at the Outlaw XP Zero Turn Mowers.
With a chair in place, operators have nothing to fear in the way of falling off. The rear tires are also wide enough to provide the needed traction when working in hilly areas. Finally, the rear and front compression systems are perfectly positioned to reduce the effect of vibration damages on the machine – as well as the operator.
The Outlaw XP Zero Turn Mower series are offered from the manufacturer at a starting price of $8,699. This price can go up when you’re getting attachments from the manufacture too.
Likewise, delivery and other logistics can add extra bucks onto the final price.
