  • Ybravo 25 mowers

    Anyone here have experience with these mowers. They seem to be overbuilt 25" mowers and I want a larger deck mower than a 21" commercial Honda for the same damn money. Ybravo has a Kawasaki motor and looks to be far more mower than a Honda.

    The one thing I heard about them was that the bags need to be kept clean or it can really cut down on airflow.

      The YBravo is in fact overbuilt. I saw one at a local dealer, and the design is very simple, yet exceptionally strong at the same time.

        I used one with a company I used to work for. They phased them out due to their extreme weight. They are overbuilt, but that makes it very heavy. Also, I think 2 years ago they got bought out and redesigned, I talked to the new owners at the GIE-Expo and they said they fixed all of the common issues with them under the old design. The new design was a little lighter, but still very heavy compared to a Honda or Toro. They are about as heavy as a 30" eXmark push mower.

          I believe I'm going to try one. It will be my first true commercial mower. If it works well, I may get two and use them in tandem. Then instead of getting a $4000+ 36" walk behind, I'll get a 52" zero-turn and go on down the road.

            It all depends on your situation and your clients. I have a 36" Turf Tracer and no push mower and love it. I've went through 3 60" mowers and 3 push mowers since I've had my 36". My 36" is the only one that has never let me down. I can mow 1/10 acre lots or 1 acre lots with it very easily. If you are going to do a ZTR, I would say go for the 60". I got a 52" the first time and could actually mow a 5 acre property in the same time with my 36" since it was more nimble and agile. I have a 60" now and love it. Also, when you do get a ZTR or Walk Behind, do your research and don't cheap out. I know that it is a big investment but my first ZTR was a Husqvarna that I bought because it was affordable and it didn't even last 70 hours before I was constantly having to fix it. It was just little stuff, but was becoming a big pain. I have a eXmark Lazer Z now with 100 hours and never done anything but blades and oil. Also, a higher end mower will cut better.
